There are two lines. One is a high pressure and one is a return line. They both run from the pump to the steering box.

Power steering pump seal leak


If the leak is on the actual power steering
pump- replace it

That is not an item that is repaired

They are returned as a core & rebuilt

More likely is a bad hose that needs replacing,
or a loose connection or burnt or worn thru

Having a leaking problem of power steering fluid. wondering how to determine if the pump is bad. If I put fluid in, it works fine, when it runs dry it goes back to whining and making noise. if the fluid...


the leaks most likey are coming from either the power steering hoses, or the power steering pump seal. the pump sounds ok, as long as you have fluid in it, but after it empties out, yes it will whine, and that is the bearing, so make sure you keep fluid in it, but sooner or later, you should fix it.

Steering on my 2005 malibu goes out all of a suden. Late it happens every few blocks. Is it the steering motor or a sensor. I live in Mexico so I dont have a good mecanic but i can find the part if I know...


It wouldn't be a sensor. Your power steering pump is at fault. It could be a loose belt or low on power steering fluid. If the fluid is low, then the pump is definately the problem and make sure to use proper AC/Delco fluid to replace the old fluid with. Worst case is that your power steering pump is bad and will need to be replaced.

Power steering dont work to left or right


To find out witch it is,pump or rack and pinion,break loose the presure line on the power steering pump with a wench.Start the car and turn the steering wheel back and forth,you may need to loosen the nut on the power steering hose two or three turns to get the fluid to shoot out.It should come out pretty forceful.If it doesn`t,then replace the pump.If it does come out really powerful,replace the rack and pinion.
