Introduction

Here is a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a leaky power steering pressure line. The part is readily available at places like Autozone and many others. Replacement cost for the hose was $27. Not a very difficult job and it only requires a few hand tools.

  1. Here is a view of the power steering pump. It is located on the front left side in the engine compartment. Visible fresh oil stains on the fan shroud and other parts. Most sludge was found at the pressure line connection The leak is on top of the flare nut where the pipe enters the pump.

Doing this job today thanks for making this! I didn't know I would need a flare nut wrench and luckily found one pretty cheap

After topping up the steering fluid, the system can be bled again by turning the wheels from left lock to right lock a few times. Much easier when both wheels are off the ground.

Does the fluid not need to be drained out before removing the line?

Dave - Réponse

@dave7777 nope. Place a rag under the hose before you take it off so it does not leave to much of a mess. Check the fluid after.
