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 fluid leak in 99 Toyota Corolla


look for split in the hard line where fluid is leaking. If you see split, change the line only. make sure power steering reservoir is filled and rack and pinion is full (charge with steering wheel left/right motion). You should be able to remove wheel and inside wheel panel to see power steering fluid shooting out of any hole. There is hydraulic pressure on the lines.

My wife and i were driving down the road when i noticed the steering got tight and when i looked i noticed that the power steering hose had been dragging the ground and rubbed a hole in the hose,i noticed...


Of course the hose is going to pop off! It's under a lot of pressure and heat! By design, the power steering hose, connectors, and ferrules are pressure fitted together (called crimping) by using a hydraulic press.

Either go to your local parts store (NAPA, Pep Boys, Auto Zone) or parts department of the Dodge/Chrysler dealership and purchase & install a new hose.

You may have even burned out the entire hydraulic servo system.

Better yet, I strongly advise having a certified ASE mechanic check out the entire system; and let them install the new hose since the power steering system will have to be bled.

Lives depend on it.

How do I check power steering/it keeps coming on and now my steering is very constricted?


If its EPS (Electronic Power Steering) it's better to diagnose it in a local repairshop.

If it's a hydraulic system - check the fluid level, refill if low. Check for leaks starting at the pump, the hoses and the power unit at the steering wheel.

Front tire pressure shouldn't be too low. Low tire pressure stresses the power steering unit to the max.

Ppower steering pressure hose 1988


There are only 2 hoses in the power steering system.
High pressure feed, and pressure return. They both connect to the power steering pump.
You can get the hoses from a dealer, or a local auto parts store.
Once you have them in hand, they are very simple to identify.

Pricing vary, depending on where you live and if you want it done at a dealership or at a local shop.It would be about 1hour of labor +price of the hose+power steering fluid. Dealer charges about $70.00 an hour.
You can call the dealer ask how much to change the hose. Also a local shop can gave you an estimate.
