RepairPal Expert Overview on October 14, 2005

One of the power steering hoses may not be able to contain the pressure of the system and may rupture. If this were to happen, power steering assist would be lost and steering effort would increase. On vehicles equipped with hydro-boost brakes, braking effort would also increase. If power steering fluid were to spray on hot engine parts, an engine compartment fire could also occur.
