Hi,

With the pressure involved especially when turning, perhaps you are better off with a new hose.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

How do you fix the leak in power stering line


This very much depends on where the leak is coming from. Hoses are generally the weak point. As they get older they can deteriorate and then crack causing a leak. Ageing hoses tend to make the power steering fluid very dark (normally a light honey). There are two cheap temporary fixes to go for. Th first is self amalgamating silicon tape ("Rescue Tape"). Wrap this as tight as you can up and down over the leak in the hose about four layers thick. An alternative is to add 'power steering leak stop' fluid to your steering reservoir tank. You will need to take some fluid out with a turkey baster of if already low due to the leak just top it up. Circulate the fluid by running the engine and turning the steering wheel from lock to lock. The more expensive and long tem solution is to replace the hoses with new ones.

Power steering fluid leaking 89 buick park avenue


look for loose hoses just tighten down
look for cracked hoses they could be spraying fluid when under pressure.
The rack is sealed with boots on each end where the tie rods come out.
they crack or could be rubbing on something.

There is a leak at the water outlet housing wherethe overflow tubing connects to it. There is no gasket or o ring to solve this.. how do you fix it?


check the radiator hose going to thermostat housing.it could be leaking.if hose okay.thermostat seal more likely leaking, meaning you have to replace the thermostat with seal.if thermostat with new seal still leaking.thermostat housing has a small crack in it.need replacing.

My 1998 Chevy Silverado has coolant leaking from the radiator at the small metal fitting at the top drivers side of the rad. Is the a seal that can be replaced or does the entire rad need to be replaced?


There's not usually a seal for these, the metal is commonly molded into the plastic sides of the radiator.. Remove the radiator tube and inspect the plastic around the fitting for cracks. If you find cracks in the plastic, then you know your answer. If it's leaking from around the radiator hose you could try replacing the clamp with a hose clamp that you can tighten with a screw driver.

My guess is the plastic is cracked there, and the radiator needs replaced, but you should inspect it first of course.

Good luck
