The return line is only held on by clamps at both ends or one end at the rack assembly,even though the fitting it connects to may have a nut fitting that threads into the rack.the pressure line always has fittings at both ends that can only be fastened onto the pump and rack by a wrench(or line tool).

How to repair power steering leak?


You need to first diagnose what is leaking. Most power steering leaks are in the pressure hose but not always. Pressure hoses will have screw on fittings and return hoses will usually just have spring clamps or screw type clamps on the end of the hose. Pressure hose most likely, return hoses 2nd, failing rack and pinion assy 3rd and pressure pump last. If its leaking from the bellows on the end of the rack and pinion the you will need a reman unit. Presure pumps are also remanufactured if thats what you need. hoses are replaced with new hoses or standard return hose for the return line.

Power steering


You may have to be under the car to trace the line. It will run from the PS pump down behind the engine to where it connects to the rack and pinion steering gear. The rack and pinion is on a subframe piece below and behind the engine. The 2 PS lines connect on the driver's side of the rack and pinion, if like nearly all GM cars.

The pressure line can be disconnected from the pump (suction out the fluid first or it will leak all over), up at top, and then disconnect it at the rack and pinion. If this fitting on the rack is hard to reach, you may need a crows foot wrench to loosen it and remove-I'm not sure about aleros. After disconnecting it top and bottom, check for any brackets that hold the two lines together, and for a bracket that may hold the lines secure on the backside of the engine.

97 ford aerostar power steering line. need diagram


Not that easy to change. You may need a crow's foot wrench on the fitting where the PS hose connects to the rack and pinion-on the car frame member behind the transaxle. Raise the driver front of car on stands, remove wheel. PS hoses, the pressure line and the return line, both connect at about the same place on the rack and pinion unit. See if you can get a regular wrench on the hose in question, and loosen it. If you can, (use rags or a can to catch leaks), then take off the hose in question up top on the PS pump, or on the PS reservoir. The pressure hose comes from the pump. The return hose goes to the reservoir-or some just both go to the pump and reservoir, if it's a single unit.
Suction out the fluid from reservoir before removing hose, or you will have a big mess to clean up afterward. If loosened from top and bottom, there should be a hose holding bracket on the backside of engine or transmission.
Good luck.

Power steering fluid leak on my 2000 ford explorer


Most likely the seals on either the pump or the rack and pinion. Could be a leaking hose between the two. Might be a loose or leaking hose connection at the pump or at the rack and pinion. If you lose the fluid in a short period of time it shouldn't be to hard to find the leak, and you are also smelling it burn when it hits the the exhaust pipes. Refill the system and with the engine running have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth while you look at the pump, lines, and at each end of the rack and pinion. you WILL find the leak.

The line that goes from my rack and pinion to my power steering box busted. what is the name of that ghose so i can go get one


There are 2 lines that service the rack and pinion. One is the high pressure line from the output side of the power steering pump, and the other is the low pressure return line to the power steering pump.

Just determine if it's the output or return line and go to your local auto parts store.

It might not be a bad idea to also pick up a vehicle specific repair manual for precise instructions on how to bleed the lines, etc.

Shouldn't be any problem at all....just a little messy from spilled fluid.

Good luck!

Trying to find my power steering leak< i need a hose diagram


There are only two that go from pump to the rack and pinion. The high pressure hose, which has partial metal line with high pressure hose crimped to it and the return line which is mostly just rubber hose with some regular clamps to hold it to the metal part coming out of the rack and pinion.

NEED DIAGRAM FOR POWER STEERING SYSTEM


There is usually no diagram for the power steering on a vehicle. On power steering you have a pressure line and a low pressure return line. The pump is located on the front of the engine and has a line that is bolted into it, this is the pressure line coming out going to the steering gearbox where it is bolted in also. The other line has a clamp holding it in place, this is the low pressure return line coming back from the gearbox. If the gearbox is the rack and pinion steering type then you may have a couple of extra high pressure lines on it to operate the rack portion of the steering. Good Luck, RAC
