I have a leak in my power steering. It appears to be in a small condenser block between the high pressure hose and the low pressure rubber hose. I can't find this part on any part lists. What is it called?

Power steering leak


Looks like it is your High Pressure power steering hose gone bad, it will squirt more fluid as you turn the steering wheel. Replace as soon as you can, if that fluid lands on the engine it can easily ignite a fire under your hood, happen to me some time ago when my car began to leak power steering fluid from the high pressure hose and the oil got all over the hot engine, it ignited causing a engine fire. Power steering fluid is very flammable and dangerous when it is close to excess heat from the engine. Most power steering systems have a low and high pressure hose, the high pressure hose takes tremendous hydraulic pressure every time you turn your wheels.

Power steering leakin , but dont know where its coming from , and its whining too . but the it stops whining after i drive it for awhile , what should i do....


Whining should be low power sterring fluid.
Check the power steering dipstick and keep it in the range.
If you have no power steering fluid, automatic transmission fluid ( Dexron) works fine.
Leaks best found with a flashlight, you should not need the engine running, but you will need to get under the car, and you may need to push or bend some of the plastic sheilds out of the way to look.
Most often it is a hose, high or low pressure hose to the power steering pump that leaks.
High pressure hose has fittings, low pressure hose may have a hose clamp.

Power steering fluid pours out when i crank the car


When you crank the engine, it rotates the pulley on the power steering pump. As the pump spins the fluid passes through the pump, rack and pinion and the high and low pressure lines. The high pressure lines are usually the culprit. The high pressure line can be identified as a metal line going into a rubber hose off of the power steering pump. Have someone crank the engine as you trace the leak. Be sure to wear safety equipment, like safety glasses and gloves to protect yourself from any squirting fluid.

On a 1994 olds cutlass supreme SL can i put a regular rubber hose over a leak on the power steerings high pressure hose to buy myself time before i can afford to replace it? i plan on hose clamping it...


If it is a small leak you might be able to wrap it with a rubber hose and apply several clamps to put a band-aid on it. However, this is only temporary at best and could still cause problems depending on where it is leaking. One possible alternative to a new hose - if you take the hose to a shop like The Hoseman (or equivalent) they can rebuild the hose cheaper than buying a new one.

AFTER MAKING A U TURN ALL OF MY POWER STEERING FLUID FLOWED OUT . I REFILLED IT 2 BLOCKS FROM HOME IT ALL RAN OUT BY THE TIME I GOT HOME THE LEAK IS ON THE DRIVERS SIDE. COULD IT BE A HOSE.


You has a leak on the high or low pressure return hose.

The high pressure line is machine press on and it heavy duty. (it's between power steering pump and rack)

The low pressure line is thinner.
(It's return from the rack to the pump)

Check for leaks on both lines.

Order the correct section from part store.

Loud whining noise sometimes after driving for a


Not really expensive just messy to repair. Return lines (low pressure) are much more common and they travel along the frame rail on the right side of the subframe from the power steering rack to the cooler line in front of the radiator. The high pressure line starts at the pump and travels over the top of the motor to the back side (it's a thick line with a big banjo bolt at the pump). They go too but less frequently.

If it's the return line and not the pressure line you can cut it and put some rubber hose from the parts store over the cut part with a couple clamps and that'll hold you for quite a while till you can get the line and get it installed.

The return line, done correctly, can be a bit of a bear on the ground but it's fairly quick in the air on a lift at a garage. The pressure line isn't too bad and can be undertaken by the home mechanic.

1998 Dodge Grnd Caravan is leaking steering fluid. Hoses appear to be in good shape. Could this indicate an imminent steering pump failure?


Hard to say where the leak is coming from. Check to see if on the end of the rubber hose (where it meets the metal) is saturated. If it is more than likely your high pressure line is starting to leak. Common problem in alot of vehicles.
