Question about 2000 Chrysler LHS
My car started leaking power steering fluid yesterday. It is going thru about a half quart a day. I'm not sure yet but it seems to be leaking from a metal hose that runs beside the engine on drivers side. So maybe thats leaking and not the pump. I've done some car repairs on my own but never a power steering pump or related issue and I've never worked on this car. Is it worth trying on my own and if not what kind of costs am I looking at?
Depends on the part to be replaced. The pump is pretty straightforward with the correct tools and costs about $60 to $100 if you do it yourself (I own an Intrepid, similar to the LHS and I work on it a lot) . If it's a metal hose, this is going to be about $30 to $50 or more and will need a flare nut wrench, along with other hand tools. If this is attached to the steering rack, you may have to move other parts out of the way. This is not a hard job either, but could be time consuming and be careful not to cross thread the fittings.
