Q: power steering reservoir, what holds it on?

asked by on

My power steering is leaking around the big boring for the tank I can do this but just the return LINE that's all that holds it on???? No laughing please

My car has 177700 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

The pressure line is removed then the pressure control valve is removed, along with disconnecting the return line. Then the reservoir can be removed. Replace the large o-ring for the reservoir and the seal at the pressure control valve outlet. Reinstall the reservoir and install the control valve with new o-rings as necessary. If you decide that you need some help with this, feel free to contact a certified mechanic who can diagnose your leak and make the necessary repairs to your vehicle.
