Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Power Steering Line of 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 4.7L

My power steering is leaking. Ordered the new P/S from the dealer. Before I will replace it, the new P/S looks different on the ends. It has the nut on both ends reversed, (the oen that goes into the resevoir is now at the other end to go into the fan, and vice versa, compared to the old P/S. Do you know if this change in the P/S is done to correct the common leaking problem, or the nuts on both ends are just simply asssembled wrong?

    I have same problem with the ends of the my power steering cable also. The ends of cable of I removed are bigger also and the cable seems to be more "heavy duty" then the one removed. The only thing I can think of is that I have a upgrade for heavy towing package. Do you have the towing package as well?

Or they gave you the wrong line. There may have been a design change though. Ask the dealer

Parts are not cheap. I'm not sure how hard it is to get to your lines but line wrench/crows foot are probably needed. They are like a boxend wrench with cutout to go over line.

is the radiator fan coming on and staying on, or not coming on at all?? i was having the same problem, and it turned out to be a fan relay switch which was pretty easy to replace. around 40 bucks, and maybe 30-45 mins.

I see this is a two part question...
In replacing the alternator, there is no reason at all to be messing with the pulley on the power steering. That pulley is pressed on and though you could remove it with a puller it is far more difficult to re-install without the proper tools. (it is not hammered on). Power steering pulleys don't just fall off. They are so tightly pressed onto the shaft that they don't even require a retaining bolt to hold them on.
Without the benefit of being able to examine it myself, I'd have to guess that either you originally had a mis-match of pulley to pulley shaft and the pulley was sliding on the shaft (so remote a concept that you may be hit by a meteorite if you buy that) Or someone removed it for an unknown reason and did not properly re-install it.

Power streeing rack leaking in nissan murano2005,how to repair it?


The usual technique is to loosen the toe-in adjustment nuts, then uncouple the steering tie rod ends with a tool like this

http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/attachments/1st-gen-tacomas/221662d1373081386-2001-taco-tools-diy-replacing-upper-lower-ball-joints-picture073.jpeg

then remove the tie rod ends, leaving the toe-in adjustment nuts in the same place on the threads to mark the adjustment position. The rubber bellows can then be cut off each end of the steering rack, and new ones slid along the tie rods and secured. You would then need a wheel alignment.

Note that on some cars the inside of the rubber bellows is not designed to retain the power steering fluid, this being done by a seal further in on the rack itself. If that was the fault, the rack would have to come out.

This job is far better done on a hoist, so you may want to take it to a repair shop.

look underneath where your power steering lines go to the steering gear, the flare nut is probably loose, you can tighten it with a 18mm flare nut wrench, make sure it is a flare nut wrench or youll strip the bolt and be screwed

How to change inner tie rod ends?


if fluid is flowing out the bellows, you need to replace the steering rack assembly. There is no fluid in the area of the inner tie rod. The seal is just before the tie rod.

Steering Gear
The power rack and pinion steering gear is serviced as a power steering short rack (3L547). The front wheel spindle tie rods (3280) and tie rod ends (3A130) are serviced individually. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • The power rack and pinion steering gear incorporates quick connect fittings for the power steering pressure hose (3A719) and power steering return hose (3A713) that allow the lines to swivel. This is normal and does not indicate loose fittings.
  • If the fittings leak, check to make sure they are tightened to 14-20 Nm (10-14 lb-ft). Do not overtighten.
  • If the leak is not corrected, replace the fitting seals.

Power steering lines/leaking pressure hose


If it looks identical then you may have the wrong line. Take the one you bought (I assume online) and the injured line to a parts store if available, or if you have the part number try to look it up online some sites have detailed pics of parts. If ends of lines are different you may have taken an adapter off that should not be off check old line to new. If it just a power steering line it should be no problem just to change the line. I suspect you may have received the wrong line.
