A fluid leak may develop from one or more power steering hose. When a leak is being repaired, it is not uncommon for multiple hoses to be replaced.

Continual slow leak in power steering hose.
Noticed oil leak on deck last year, put in ps stop leak, and 2 mths ago leak returned. Had problem diagnosed via dye in reservoir & confirmed pressure/supply hoses are leaking. Also informed possible reservoir tank leak, cause low pressure return hoses rarely need replacing!
