FIRST YOU DRAIN POWER STEERING PUMP USING A SIPHON. PLACE DRAIN PAN UNDER VECHICLE WHERE POWER STEERING PUMP LOCATION WOULD BE.THE DRAIN PAN WILL CATCH FLUID AS YOU REMOVE POWER STEERING LINE.YOU NEED FLARE IN LINE WRENCHES AND A NEW POWER STEERING PRESSURE LINE AND NEW O - RINGS. IF NEW PRESSURE LINE DONT HAVE NEW O- RING THE DEALERSHIP WILL HAVE IT.

2005 chevy impala 3.4v6 power steering fluid leaking all over alternater and drive belt, car want hardly run,


Sounds like the high pressure power steering hose is leaking. Check it out and if so replace it along with the low pressure return line. If the lines are not leaking then the power steering pump could be the problem.

Power steering line leaking?


Some pressure lines use an installation technique that if not followed properly will leak even though tight. Take it to an accredited power steering specialist shop to have the problem fixed..

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.

I have a 1991 Cadillac Sedan DeVille. Recntly, I made a tight right turn. I heard a sound and a pressure release. From this, it has been hard to steer. What is needed to fix this issue? Parts, Remedies.


I think your power steering pressure hose burst or is leaking.

Could be leaking some other place in the power steering, but you heard a pressure release it must have been the high pressure line. Obviously, there is a leak since its hard to steer. You should check your power steering lines to see where your leak is.

Power steering tank wont hold fluid and leaks out beside driver tire


Sounds like a blown power steering line. To confirm, wipe down all surfaces around the power steering unit including the lines. Replace the power steering fluid and start the engine. While 1 person is inside the truck, have them turn the wheel from side to side while another watches the area around the power steering unit paying very close attention around the lines. The high pressure line is the most common cause for leaking fluid. If there's no crack or kink in the line, the issue may be the fitting itself where it connects to the power steering pump. Both parts are pricey but replacing the high pressure line (about $150 at the dealer) is certainly less expensive than replacing the whole power steering unit itself.

My power steering fluid is leaking, i fill it up and it all leaks out does this mean the the hose is busted or the power steering gear is no good, yet when i fill it back up with power steering fluid it...


The most common cause is a leak in the power steering line. With someone sitting in the car,(and the car running) watch the power steering line and ask them to turn the wheel in both directions. A leak in the power steering line will spurt fluid during this exercise whereas a leak in the power steering unit itself would tend to ooze fluid due to less pressure.

Power steering fluid leaking pretty good on 2005 chevy impala. not from pressure line ithink. any clues


The power steering pump is belt driven. It is on the engine where you put fluid in. There are two lines that run from the power steering pump to the power steering rack on the firewall. The fluid can leak from the pump, either of the lines or the rack itself. If you are handy you may be able to repair the problem by replacing the bad part. Wear safety glasses when looking for the leak and do not touch the fluid leak when the engine is running. The pressure is high enough to hurt you. If you ignore the problem you will eventually loose the power assist and may be unable to steer the car. Fix it now!








One line is high pressure and the other is a return line. Check them with the engine off and when you think you've found the leak staret the car and look for the leak. If it sprays like a water hose DO NOT TOUCH THE LEAK. The pressure is high enough to cause serious injury.

Fluid is leaking and i can not steer


you are leaking power steering fluid. the high pressure line is the most common problem with windstars. other leakable parts are the rack and pinion, power steering pump, low pressure line or power steering reservoir.
