How to fix leaking power steering hose
You don’t have to replace the entire power steering hose
There’s another way to fix a leaking power steering hose
High power steering hoses usually develop leaks near the crimp connector where the flexible rubber portion meets the steel line. In most cases, the best way to fix the leak is to replace the entire power steering hose with a new unit. But on some vehicles, due to the way the power steering hose is routed, the labor cost can be prohibitive. Plus, if you’re a DIYer, you most likely need a lift or special crows feet wrenches to remove and replace the power steering hose. But there’s an easier and less expensive way to fix a power steering hose leak.
Use S.U.R. & R. hose repair kit
S.U.R. & R. makes hose repair kits that allow you to replace just the leaking portion of the power steering line. That means you don’t have to fight to remove the fittings at the steering rack, pump or cooler. Just cut the power steering line at both ends near the crimp connector. Remove the leaking hose and replace it with a new section. Just insert the new hose and fitting onto the cut section of the steel line and tighten. Bleed the system and you’re done.
