Cadillac 2001 Deville DTS Power Steering Leak

(2001 Cadillac DeVille DTS)
in Los Gatos, CA on March 11, 2011
A repairman diagnosed the 2001 Deville DTS with 41,000 miles. He says the power steering leak is in top pressure and return hoses and the power steering pump. Estimate is $780. I find it odd that all 3 need to be replaced at the same time. I would not be surprised if it had been the hoses OR the pump but both seems strange. Feedback is greatly appreciated.

you may have leaks from all 3 but the primary leak could be any of them. the problem is the guy fixing it may repair the gross leak but if the others are still leaking, you will return and complain that the leak is still there. he is protecting himself from any comeback and also, he wants to fix it right. I would do the same thing.

A simple scan test will 'prove' if tachometer failure is the culprit... Highly recommend visiting local repair facility.
