I assume you mean on the fuel assembly? Any fuel hose would work if you're talking about the rubber one. They go bad now and then and we just take a regular fuel hose, cut to length, and replace it. Works for years. As for the metal pipe, same thing. Although, you might want to cut it out and replace with rubber hose. Finding a pipe is a pain so we use hose and hose clamps.

I have a leaky power steering hose, the leak starts by the second crimp.What kind of hose and fittings do I need to replace it.

Your best bet is to get the hose assembly from the Auto parts store. Those are high pressure hoses made of special material that are resistant to the corrosive nature of Hydraulic fluid and the pressure that builds in those lines. The connections where the hoses connect to metal connectors are compression fittings and difficult to replace under the best of circumstances. When you identify the parts you need Auto Zone and Advance Auto can show you the parts diagram so you can make sure you get the correct line.

My 1998 toyota corolla is leaking power steering at a fast rate, what are possible problems for the leak and how much to fix

Most problems are the hose. One of them may be leaking. The pump may have a seal leak also. You can get a new hose at the auto parts store. It will cost about $20, and you can change it in about 20 minutes. As for the pump, that I can not tell you. You can check at the auto parts store, and do it yourself. If you take it to a shop, they will want about $80 an hour for labor alone, and charge about 2 hours plus part. They will mark up the price of the part (that's how they make their money). Please check your hoses first (they are rubber) and I hope that's it. Hope this helps.

Power steering fluid leaking and turning is hard need to know how to change pump and hose need to know how to change it myself

First check the hoses located at the back of the pump. They are the most likely culprit.
If the fluid is leaking from the hose, purchase a replacement from a local dealer or repuitable auto parts supply.

If it is not the hose and the pump needs to be replaced, first I would suggest buying a Chilton manual either on-line or from an auto parts store and follow the detailed proceedure in replacing the pump.

This should require open end wrenches and take an hour or so.

The car is leaking anti-freeze. The suggestions we received were, that it could be the water pump. Where is the water pump located, and can it be fix without taking it to a mechanic.

Could be water pump, bad hose, bad gasket. First thing is first, find out what the problem is. Go to auto part store, get some dye for radiator system. dump it in, run vechile, use uv goggles and a uv light to determin where it is leaking from. Once found, a step by step process can be described for you to replace needed parts.

Power steering fluid is leaking from hose or reservoir 2003 accord

HELLO! Give the area around the pump a good clean-up. Start the car, and while someone turns the steering wheel from lock to lock (several times) try and determine if the connection point of pressure line to pump is leaking. Also watch behind the pulley for fluid escaping from behind the belt pulley. If it's the connection ;
Remove, clean , and tighten. If leak is behind pulley the pump seal is defective and you'll need to but a new pump. It is less expensive to buy it from an auto parts store. But here is a tip; Stop at a dealership, have the parts dept. run your VIN to identify what your pump looks like. Take that drawing to parts store to insure your getting the correct replacement. Honda uses a multitude of of different pumps.

Replacing power steering hoses

adirondacktr on is correct, you can find replacements or get them made at any auto parts store, or a Hydrolic shop that makes hoses, But if it's a 2008 it would be a warrenty fix. If you let it go you can damage the pump and the hydrolic assist sytem costing a lot of money and voiding any warrenty you would have if you do not have it replaced you can also get a subscription to to see if there is a recall on the hoses or any other they may have found. Don't let it leak to the point you damage the pump.

Power steering leak/Squealing car

Sounds like you bought the wrong hose. also check the o-rings & be sure to use new ones when replacing the hose. Be sure you have it in right & not cross threaded. If it's cross threaded,you got a major problem. First it will always leak,second you probably ruined the pump or rack where it screws in. If it's engine oil,then buy a dye from the auto parts store of choice & have it checked by a shop with an ultra violet light.

Transmission leak

The hoses are called "transmission lines", and you are correct they do go from the transmission and connect to the radiator. Most any auto parts store should be able to order them for you, but chances are most won't have them in stock. Your best bet to find a auto parts store with them in stock would be napa. Otherwise, you local chevrolet dealer may have them in stock.
