What is a power steering hose?

Hydraulic power steering systems need at least two power steering hoses: One for high pressure, and the other for low pressure. These hoses deliver fluid to and from the power steering pump and gear, allowing the steering wheel to turn with greater ease.

What are the symptoms related to a bad power steering hose?

If a power steering hose has failed, you will likely notice leaking fluid under the hood or on the ground under the car. It the problem has affected the pump, it will typically make a whining or screeching noise, and it may be more difficult to turn the steering wheel.

Can I drive with a power steering hose problem?

When power steering parts fail, it almost always means a leak. But the amount of leaking fluid will determine if the vehicle can be driven.

Small leaks will not prevent the car from being driven, but when the amount is too low to keep the pump full, it's best to get a tow to avoid damaging the fuel pump and steering gear.

How often do power steering hoses need to be replaced?

For most vehicles, the power steering system will last well over 100,000 miles before any failures occur — as long as you follow the maintenance schedule in your owner's manual.

Keeping the power steering fluid fresh and the system free of contaminants is key. The system will eventually fail from normal wear and tear, but this should be well into the life of the vehicle.
