1999 Mercury Cougar power steering leak

I've got a 99 Mercury Cougar with a power steering leak where the high pressure hose comes out the side of the pump. It only leaks when the car is running or shortly after it's been turned off. The only thing we can think is that there's a crack in the flared piece under the nut that attaches the high pressure hosing to the pump. No one sells this part and we've tried to seal it with gaskets and JB Weld but nothing is working. I've got to get this fixed because it keeps leaking into the alternator and causing it to go out. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions I would greatly appreciate them!! Anyone that needs help on these cars, let me know...mine has gone thru almost an entire overhaul sitting in our garage. Thanks!

WOULD SUGGEST FINDING A HYDROLICS COMPANY IN YOUR AREA-IF ONE IS NOT LISTED IN YELLOW PAGES, FIND A BIG TRUCK DEALER-KW, FREIGHTLINER, ETC, THEY WILL BE ABLE TO TELL YOU WHO MAKES THER HYDRO LINES, FIND THIS PERSON - REMOVE YOUR HOSE AND TAKE IT TO THEM AND HAVE THEM MAKE THE HOSE UP- THEY CAN CRIMP THE NEW END

HOWEVER THAT SAID, IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE AIR IN THE POWER STEERING SYSTEM

TO GET RID OF THAT, JACK THE FRONT OF VEHICLE UP OFF THE GROUND

TAKE CAP OFF THE POWER STEERING RESERVOIR

DO NOT START VECHILE

BUT TURN STEERING WHEEL FROM STOP TO TO STOP IN ORDER TO FORCE AIR OUT

WILL SEE BUBBLES IN RESERVOIR

MAY HAVE TO DO THIS SEVERAL HUNDRED TIMES TO GET IT ALL OUT

I had the same issue. It is a little two inch tube that attaches to the pump that goes bad. You have to go to the dealer to by replacement. Once I did that the leak went away.

1999 mercury cougar power steering leak


it depends if it is your high pressure or low pressure line if it is the high pressure line you can purchase at an auto parts store for about $60-$70. If it is your low pressure line good luck finding a replacement. But what I did that cost me about $5 was buy a gas line that fit and a couple clamps and I cut out the section with the leak and installed the gas lin in its place. But remember you can only do that simple fix with the low pressure line.

Ive had a power steering leak for a little while at first it was small and didnt loss much fluid, but now im lossing power steering fluid in just one day. How do I know if it is a hose that is leaking or...


You need to raise the car, put jack stands underneath for safety and spray some type of degreaser to clean off the oil on the hoses, pump, frame, etc., then wash off with a hose or pressure washer (best). Let everything dry and then have another person crank up the engine while you are underneath looking at pump and hose (be sure your jack stands are securely holding up the car before climbing underneath). If you're losing a lot of fluid each day you should easily be able to see your leak at the pump or hose connections. If it's gotten steadily worse, it probably is the pump seals getting worse.
