The car was fully check out by certifed mechanic prior to repair and no other leaks were identified. The underside was power washed off by mechanic and no leaks reported. Repair to timing cover gasket made we drove 10 miles and major power steering leak occured at seal, also power steering hose now has minor leak. Now reported hose and power steering gear box needs replaced.

1. Could the timing cover gasket replacement have caused the problem in some way rupturing the Power Steering seal?

2.Could one replace just the hose and the seal to minimize the cost of this major repair?

    hard to say how the repair was performed whether it had anything to do with the repair. did you ask the tech??

    You can replace just the hose but if the leak is still there, it will be annoying. which seal??
