Hello all,

I have a power steering leak where my fluid will drip out to completely empty every 3-4 days or so. From what I can see, it looks to be coming from where the top hose on it is connected to the engine. The hose seems to be connected well, can there be another cause of this?

Thanks

Have an 89 with the same problem. Can't tell if it is the hose or the neck is cracked. Replaced hose and still leaks. Ideas?

2004 Power Steering leak

I took out the hose from the reservoir to the engine and tested it out, by pouring water through it. The leaks seemed to be coming from the ends rather than from a hole in the hose so I added hose clamps to both sides of the hose. I also added a hose clamp to the pressurized hose, where the hose meets the reservoir, but it is now leaking on the other side where the hose is going to the steering column. I tried looking on videos online, and read that it is form fitted, the only way would involve lifting the engine. Is there a simpler way? Is it possible to spray some sort of sealant between the hose and the form fitted metal piece that connects to the stearing column to stop the leak?
Thanks
