Did a good job with the work. Was professional with communication, but left the inside of my car dirty.
He charged me more than the quote; said it was going to take longer but did not say it would cost more. Don’t think I should have been charged extra for that. He left my steering wheel filthy with black oil-like dirt, which I had to clean off before driving my car; he left the same dirty spots on driver’s side front fender; he left power steering spots on my driveway. (Should have had some covering under the car in case of and to catch any spills). His work appears to be good, but his cleanup is terrible, leaves much to be desired.

Damien explained everything, was very helpful and went above and beyond.
I'm sure he is a good mechanic... But when he was disassembling the parts, he broke a inlet port on the radiator..... He gave me an estimate to replace the radiator , Parts and Labor, an additional $ 500.00... The radiator was working fine. He was very apologetic for braking the part, and he "tried" to explain that the radiator (Plastic body) probably was brittle (my words,) " He said it looked it had stress cracks") Original radiator ... Car has 113,000 miles on it..... He made another appointment to replace the radiator for tomorrow. I will not have him replace the radiator... If I can not fix the broken inlet port, I will replace the radiator myself, For a lot less then the $500.00.. I have experience working on "Race Cars", and I can replace the radiator and will buy it on the internet for under $ 100.00.

Very professional. Friendly and went above and beyond.
I showed up from a late night at work and Chris only had about a half left of work to do. He was courteous and professional. If I need to use YourMechanic again I will be looking for Chris.

Even though Terry was sent the wrong part twice. He was able to complete the job. He personally went to the dealership and ordered the correct part. Then had them overnight it so he could install it the next day. Way to go Terry thanks for a job well done!

Power Steering Pressure Hose Replacement Service

What is the power steering pressure hose and how does it work?

The power steering pressure hose transfers the high-pressure hydraulic output of the power steering pump to either a steering gear box or steering rack and pinion unit to create the power assist that you rely on when you turn the steering wheel. The pressure hose is only used in cars with a power steering pump and reservoir, so if you have a newer car you may have electric power steering instead. The pressure hose is relatively large in diameter in order to withstand high hydraulic pressure, flex as the engine moves and vibrates, and also withstand engine heat, accidental cuts, and abrasion.

When to the consider replacing the power steering pressure hose:

  • Groaning, whirring noise or difficulty steering. Noise, or difficulty turning the steering wheel, may reflect a low power steering fluid level, which could be due to a leak in a pressure hose, or a leak elsewhere in the power steering system. Although a leak in the pressure hose is a possible cause of a low fluid level, a mechanic will consider all other possible causes, too.
  • Visible fluid leaks. There are usually steel ferrules clamped onto each end of the rubber pressure hose. These ferrules are common leak points. If there is seepage from these ferrules, the pressure hose should be replaced.
  • Hose damage. If the hose has significant physical damage, such as cuts, abrasions, cracks, or heat damage, the hose should be replaced to avoid sudden hose failure.
  • Contaminated fluid. If rubber particles are found in the power steering fluid or reservoir, it means the interior of either the pressure hose or the return hose is deteriorating. All rubber hoses should be replaced and the system flushed. An in-line, aftermarket fluid filter might be required.
  • Hose age. Both the pressure and return hoses are rubber-based products with a limited service life. If the vehicle is more than 10 years old, and power steering components are being replaced, all the rubber hoses should be replaced during that service.

How do mechanics replace the power steering pressure hose?

The underhood routing of the power steering pressure hose varies greatly between car models. The repair procedure ranges from simple to quite involved. The basic steps are:

  • Raise car as needed and support with steel safety stands.
  • Unthread the pressure hose tube nuts, or banjo-style bolts, at each end of the pressure hose.
  • Remove pressure hose and inspect interior hose lining for separation, if visible.
  • Install a new hose, using a new sealing washer or O-ring seals as applicable, and paying particular attention to the required original equipment manufacturer’s (OEM) torque value for the tube nuts or banjo bolts. Replace rubber return hose, if required, and with the authorization of the customer.
  • Once the system is fully sealed again, bleed or flush power steering system as required to remove all air and contaminants.
  • Finally, the engine is run, the car is test driven, and leaks are checked for at all connections.

Is it safe to drive with a power steering pressure hose problem?

No. The fluid in the power steering pressure hose is under very high pressure and flammable. A leak that sprays fluid into a hot engine part, such as the exhaust manifold, can cause a fire. Leaks that cause significant fluid loss can cause difficulty in steering and, if a leak causes the fluid level in the reservoir to drop too low, it can cause damage to the power steering pump too, necessitating the installation of not only a new hose but a new pump.

When replacing the power steering pressure hose keep in mind:

  • When the power steering hoses are replaced, the entire power steering system should be inspected.
  • Use only OEM specified power steering fluid in your power steering system.
  • If the pressure hose has deteriorated from the inside, the rubber return hose should be replaced as well and the system should be flushed. A mechanic might recommend the installation of an in-line filter to capture all debris.
  • Tube nuts and banjo bolts used to seal pressure hoses have OEM-specified torque values. Mechanics will use a calibrated torque wrench to tighten the connections.
  • Complete removal of air from the system can occasionally take some time, even after the normal bleeding procedure. During this time some mild noise may be heard when turning the steering wheel. If it persists more than a day or so, the system should be rechecked.
