leaking and pump and hose replaced by mechanic shop but after about three months leaks continued...same power steering leak. what can i do?
Pours fluid out of orig.pump replaced at dealership and was leaking again with in a week
Presently, now at approximately 230k miles, I've been going through a quart of "leak-stop" power steering fluid every 4-6 days. I'm getting ready to address the issue properly, as the focus had been on body work as of late due to an accident.
Power steering hose that runs from pump to rack and pinion has leak and requires me to top off the power steering fluid every three months.
I am getting the pump replaced tomorrow at Midas including a flush, they are asking 258 dollars including labor, while the Pep Boys down the street were asking for 427 dollars! I know where I am taking my business from now on.
I had a power steering leak but it wasnt any of the lines or pump. It was the power steering air control valve. Its two vaccuum lines that run to a screw like part at the back of the power steering pump. The plastic expands over time and causes a leak. It can also cause idling issues as well as noisy steering and loss of power while idling.
