Power Steering Hose Replacement Cost
We recommend using factory power steering hose replacement parts because they fit exactly and last longer than aftermarket replacement hoses.
When replacing a power steering hose on European vehicles, we recommend flushing the entire system and replacing the power steering reservoir because these vehicles contain a filter that gets clogged after about 60,000 miles.
Power steering systems have other fluid hoses in addition to the pressure hose. These hoses can also leak and may require replacement at an additional cost.
When a power steering hose is leaking, there will be fluid loss and drips on the ground. The power steering effort may increase due to the loss of fluid and the pump may make a noisy, groaning sound while the vehicle is being turned, especially at slow speeds.
Sometimes an engine oil leak is mistaken for a leaking power steering hose, especially if the power steering fluid is getting old. When power steering fluid gets old, it gets darker in color and looks very much like old engine oil.
