    What is to much cost? If the leaking fuel line causes a fire the car will be toast.

It will not cost all that Much to Repair these yourself. The Power Steering line is a Preassure Line though So, You need to be Extra Careful and Pay attention when Changing it. The rest is Pretty much Common Sense and can be Fixed by ANY Shade Tree Mechanic!

What is recommended repair for power steering leak?


That problem does pose a fire risk. Power steering fluid is light weight oil. If the oil spreads to the manifold for the exhaust it can catch fire. IT is not clear where the leak is from what you have posted but the cost that you were quoted is way too high. A pump is not that expensive and neither are the hoses or the labor to work on them. The moving parts on the steering axle could be that expensive and rebuilding or replacing them can be costly.

1999 mercury cougar power steering leak


it depends if it is your high pressure or low pressure line if it is the high pressure line you can purchase at an auto parts store for about $60-$70. If it is your low pressure line good luck finding a replacement. But what I did that cost me about $5 was buy a gas line that fit and a couple clamps and I cut out the section with the leak and installed the gas lin in its place. But remember you can only do that simple fix with the low pressure line.

Take the car to another mechanic. The steering is likely going stiff because the belt is loose, that's why it's squeaking and slipping on the power steering pump pulley. The mechanic should have checked and tightened the belt. The pumps rarely fail. If you have a gas leak, it must be repaired immediately and it depends what is wrong that will determine cost. Go to a smaller shop that has been around along time or get a referral from friends that have had good luck with a shop that does repairs, not just oil changes.

Power steering is leaking


It could be either of 2 things, the Pressure hose coming from your Power steering container (Holding your power streering fluid, or your return Line. the power steering pressure hose costs any where from $35-$60 dollars and is a pain in the **** to do your self on a malibu. the return line is a length of hose that is cut for you, costs anywhere from $3 -$12 - this is also a pain in the ****, due to the limited amount of room to work with and as well as the power steering fluid leaking on you. Your bet bet is to fix it yourself, cause they will cost you alot to take it in for repair unless you got the cash. Always remember to Block (tires) your vehicle anytime you are working underneathe it for safety reasons and to have someone watching you just in case ;)

Hydraulic leaks are typically a result of seals/o-rings wearing out. If you gave a leak coming from the cylinder you will probably have to replace the cylinder. Unless you are can do the repair yourself its unlikely that you will find someone who can rebuild it for less than a new one costs
