It depends, if it is the low pressure hose held on with regular clamps... then those are generally cheap from a local auto store... you may also be able to trim it down with a blade and reinstall the clamp.
If it is the pressure line, then no. Those lines are pressurized and they are held together by threaded rubber hose that deteriorates over time. Not to mention the clamps are machine pressed and you cannot replace them. In that case, the line would have to be purchased and replaced.
Goodluck

Fix power steering leak


You need to determine where the leak is originating. The possbilities are:

1. Leaking from the power steering pump.
2. Leaking from the high pressure hose at the steering rack
3. Leaking from the return hose at the steering rack
4. Leaking from the steering rack boot(s).

Once you find the leak source, replace that component.

I have a power steering leak in a 1995 Isuzu Rodeo..it only leaks (leaks the most) fluid when i drive it. What can it be?


First You need to find out where the leak is-coming from,it can only be one of the following power steering hose return and pressure hoses, power steering pump and reservoir and rack and pinion. For any of these leaks they are no quick fixes for thseproblembecuaseof the high pressure in the steering system. So any of the problem you will need to replace that component. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Power steering fluid leaks quickly out 1989 Volvo 740 GLE wagon


The most obvious places are the Power steering rack itself - at each end, and the hoses that are attatched to it.
A leak at the pump is easily spotted.

Hoses are cheaper to replace than seals on the rack (which may require a new unit)
