Sounds like the high pressure power steering hose is leaking. Check it out and if so replace it along with the low pressure return line. If the lines are not leaking then the power steering pump could be the problem.

Is there any service done on the power steering on the last few days?
Example: replacing high and low pressure hose(s).Leaking power steering rack?
Please place a cardboard on the ground (under the path of all steering components to inspect for leak(s).
It can be multiple spots.Inspect both tie rods for smooth end to end turning operation.(two persons task)
Check power steering for lock up or belt hopping condition.
THESE ARE VERY IMPORTANT STEPS! Mis-diagnosis can cause you $1200 or more.
The most like trouble location (about to leak or burst) is the high pressure hose after the PS pump or between the PS fluid tank.
Check for deform hoses.
The "hard to turn" condition is cause by air pocket / air bubble inside the steering rack.
Worst case is metal fragment inside the rack.
If your 2001 steering is stock and has over ~160,000 miles then you should save up money for a rack + hoses + pump + belt replacement.

Need to replace hoses on powre steering pump Can I do it myself?


yes the low pressure is a matter of hose clamps, the high pressure will have to be purchased or made. The just screw on, all you have to do is drain the power steering and remove old line and replace them with the new. Fill back up the power steering and check to make sure nothing is leaking. hope this helps Tim

E-350 van power steering leak, replace pump and or hoses? can't seem to locate origin of leak. thanks in advance.


try some power steering leak stop first if this doesn't work try going around to all the hose connections and tightening them to torque spec if it still leaks you will need a pump, before paying for a pricey repair have a UV leak detection test done first

O ring is leaking from power steering pressure hose


I had the same problem. You can not replace that o ring. You have to replace the complete hose ***. They redesigned the hose to fix that common problem. To bad the customer has to pay to replace a poorly designed part.
