I think you're referring to the cooler for the power steering system.

I have a 1997 lexus es 300 i need to replace the power steering hose its leaking under driver side i cant find any videos to help no good info all i keep hearing is take it to a shop some ppl dont gave...

first were is the leak is it at the joint or the hose ? joint you need a new hose and clamping kit. costly. hose split cut out the bad part and fix with a new part of pipe. and copper tubing and pipe clamps.... you can make a clamp if you need to put a new pipe on. you need two bits off metal with a hole in the middle of both of them so it looks like a half moon on each of them that sit the same. put the new pipe on in place put the bits off metal around the new pip on the metal and using 2 jubilees to hold in place then tighten them up tight this will clamp the metal on the pipe. when nice and tight it will be done. the pipe will turn round this is normal. if its a small leak you can use stop leak you put this in the system its thicker power steering fluid don't get the engine one it will not work. has to be for the power steering. just fill the system with this stuff. look on line and you will find the stuff have used this on a few cars as its a cheap fix and lasts for a long time. never had to use it my self but done a lot to other vehicles were they don't have the money to replace pipes. 5 year and still going. well there is all that i can hepl you with hope this helps.

I have a leak coming from my power steering, and i dont know how to check and see where the leak is and what to look for.

There are two lines coming out of the back of the power steering pump. One is the high pressure line and threaded into the pump. The other is the return line, and has a metal tube coming out of the back of the pump. There should be a short rubber hose connecting this tube with another metal line that goes to the steering box. There are two metal lines threaded into the top of the steering box. The steering box is located at the end of the steering column and is bolted to the drivers side frame rail at the front of the vehicle. You will have to remove the left front tire to access these fittings. The rubber hose will be attached with hose clamps and are prone to leak. To tighten the threaded fittings, you will need a 16mm open end wrench, or preferably a flare nut wrench of the same size.
