Leaking power steering fluid when running


probably bad hose or leaking seal in pump. try turning the wheel all the way one direction to see if it leaks more. if so it is most likely hose.

Power steering pump leaking on the bottom side hose, does pump need to be replaced or can the hose just be replaced and how difficult . 1991 nissan maxima.


If the leak is from the pump unit it will need to be replaced,
If the leak is just from the hose it can be replaced.
Identify the definite source of the leak, before proceeding.
A new hose could probably be fitted by DIY if you have the correct tools.

Power steering leak --a lot


Three areas of concern. A leaking steering rack: By looking under the car, look for the rods which tie the left and right wheels together in the center. By turning the steering wheel fully to the left or right, you can look behind the front wheels 1/2 way down and you will see the rod I am referring to. Following the rod to it source of attachment, it will have a rubber bellows type cover surrounding is as it gets near the center of the car. If the rubber is torn and has oily residue, that is where you are loosing your power steering fluid. It is a leaking power steering rack. A fairly expensive repair, best left to a professional. Buying a used one is a real crapshoot because they are very prone to failure as they get older.
2. The high pressure hoses will leak on these cars. It is difficult to see these without putting the car on a lift because the pump is on the firewall side of the engine. If you notice the fluid dripping near the pump, it is a higher probability than not that it is the high pressure hose than the pump. Also look at the return hose coming from the reservoir, Sometimes the clamps aren't that tight and it will cause a leak, but your description sounds like a leak under pressure.
