2001 Kia Sportage Question: Price per hose

 

Question

Visitor, 2.0L 4 Cylinder, Greenwich, CT, April 29, 2011, 08:52

I just had my power steering hose(s) replaced. Parts on RepairPal is $89-$116. Is that per hose? My bill were I had my car done is Press hose DNS $66 and P/S hose $94 DNS. What does DNS stand for. Does this sound correct?
Thanks
Steve

    My labor guide says about .7 hour labor to replace each hose, also says OE hose from Kia (pressure hose doesn't say if it is a one or two piece hose) is $112. DNS may be an abbreviation for the supplier of an aftermarket part used on your car I don't know just a guess, where I work if we used an Edelman steering hose we would abbreviate it on the repair order "S/ Hose Pressure EDL".
