    high pressure hose leaking needed to be replaced, and the way the bolts are set up its on the back of the motor. So the whole dang motor has to be dropped to replace your talking some money there. It cost 201.00 dollars in labor and 43.00 dollars in parts to fix this problem.

    High Pressure power steering hose went bad, and any attempt to fill the fluids would be useless as any fluid immediately escaped the line.

    Power steering fluid leaking nonstop. The cause of the leak was originally misdiagnosed as the pump itself; however, it was later determined that there was a hole in the high pressure power steering hose. The work was done, but it is now leaking again at 150,000 miles

    The power steering pump was replaced when it was diagnosed as the original problem. The leaking then started in the high pressure power steering hose. It is critical that the hose be replaced or you could possibly ruin the newer power steering pump. I go through 1-2 bottles of steering fluid just to get 1-2 miles. I have been quoted approximately $250 just for parts and labor. This is a great running car and when I bought it in 2005, it had 81,000 miles on it. It is now a classic, although it looks very worn. People often tell me that the 3.1 engine is one of the best and they regret selling theirs. I think it is worth fixing. If you have a running car with low insurance and can save paying a car note . . . why not?
