You can either remove the line yourself and take it to a hydraulic hose place for them to make you up a new one which will be cheaper then buying a genuine part from a dealer or you could just take it to a hydraulic place and they'll do it for you. If you do this yourself be sure to put a tray under the hose to catch the oil.
If you keep driving it as is the steering system will run out of oil and the steering will get very tight and hard to turn and may even cause you to crash.

Fixing power steering leaks in 2005 Toyota Highlander

The lines. you have 2.
high pressure and low pressure. combined, they cost around $400 at dealers but can be found cheaper online.
labor at a shop to replace both lines calls for 2.3 hours, so you will pay their cost per hour of labor.
plus shop fees and tax. (fees cover shop supplies like fluid, gloves, etc)
If the problem is the power steering pump itself, the average cost at shops for the part is $450 (part only) plus 1.6 hours of labor.

if the issue is the steering rack itself, you can find that part online for $350 on average.
If you just let the shop order the steering rack, they may hit you for $1,200-$1,400 just for the part, and labor times for that job is 4.2 hours.

Please note, the link I have attached may notbe the correct part for your toyota. You would have to search for the correct vehicle.
include engine size and other required info like "Toyota camry LE, 2.5L, front wheel drive"
Hope this helps.

Why does the power steering fluid leak out of the reservoir top under pressure when the engine is running

You have a clog in the system. The pump must be working to build the pressure .I would look for a stuck check valve ware the lines go into the pump or the steering box at the other end of the lines .It important to fix this now when its still coming the filler .Ford has enough problems with this system you don't want to blow the seals it will leak everywhere

I have a 2006 chevy silverado with a 6.6 litre diesle that has what i think is a power steering fluid leak up at the master cylander or break booster on the fire wall the hoses run from the power steering...

The Duramax trucks by Chevy and GMC use Hydro-Boost brakes, meaning that they use a hydrolic pump for the brakes and the steering. GM has had real trouble with leaky Hydrlic hoses on all their trucks for a few years (like my truck) for leaking coolant lines from the trans and as I found out today during my oil change, coming from the hydro-boost. These are replacable, but not under warrenty for you or me.

Power steering fluid leaking pretty good on 2005 chevy impala. not from pressure line ithink. any clues

The power steering pump is belt driven. It is on the engine where you put fluid in. There are two lines that run from the power steering pump to the power steering rack on the firewall. The fluid can leak from the pump, either of the lines or the rack itself. If you are handy you may be able to repair the problem by replacing the bad part. Wear safety glasses when looking for the leak and do not touch the fluid leak when the engine is running. The pressure is high enough to hurt you. If you ignore the problem you will eventually loose the power assist and may be unable to steer the car. Fix it now!

One line is high pressure and the other is a return line. Check them with the engine off and when you think you've found the leak staret the car and look for the leak. If it sprays like a water hose DO NOT TOUCH THE LEAK. The pressure is high enough to cause serious injury.

Looking for diagram of power steering to solve leak that is occurring but can't seem to locate leak; seems to happen only after being driven for a length of time

not much info on the car or year but here goes...the pump is located on the engine and has a pressure hose running to the steering box. The pressurized fluid goes through from the pump into the box to assist turning of the wheel. There is a low pressure return hose coming back from the box to the pump. That should be all of the lines running to it unless it has a turbo which I've never seen a cavalier have..

Power Steering Fluid Leaking!

should only be 2 hoses coming from and to your PS unit 1 is high pressure and the other is a return line. the Fluid all over the engine compartment is from the fan blowing the fluid,

my suggestion clean the area fill the PS unit up and have someone start the vehicle and watch where the fluid is coming from.

Power steering fluid leak

The power steering pump is one of the devices that the fan belts operate. Follow all of the belts and note the pullys they run over. One of these devices will have two hoses about 1" in diameter comming out of it. Typically this is also where you fill the fluid when it is low, but not always. If you fill the fluid at a container on the side of the engine compartment, it will have a hosee that runs down to this PS pump as well.
Check for wetness along the lines especially at the terminal end of each line whre they meet the pump and where they meet the power steering box or rack. You may have to get under the car for this. If your car has a steering rack (about 2 feet long and three iN in diameter, look for fluid leaking at either end of the rack You can but rebuilt racks and have them installed by most garages. If that is the case have it done byy a garage that also does front end alignments as some adjustment in this are my be required

Good Luck
