    New to the forum because I hate paying for what i can fix my self. I believe i have a power steering fluid leak, i herd a poping noise from the left side of the truck as i was backing to the right. When i got out there was major fluid leaking from the hose next to the powersteering fluid fill spot and the powersteering dipstick was dry. trying to attach a couple of pics. thanks Angie

    well If it is leaking and you want to fix it. 1. it is always best to replace the hose. 2. any auto parts store will have a hose repair kit that is inexpensive. This kit will allow you to repair the line just follow the instructions to the T. 3. Add some more fluid in and make sure that this line is leaking your fluid. I really couldnt see to well in the picture to tell you for sure what line that is. Good luck pm me if you need any more help.

    Agreed. If it is indeed the line, replacing it is the only option. You might want to take a look at the surrounding area just to make sure that there isn't something sticking out that cut the line while you're in there.

    Welcome to the Site!!!

    It's a replacement for sure. No bandages there.

    Checked autozone.com for you. I didn't know what truck so I went for 2005 silverado 5.3 v8 and the hoses were $33 and $44. That should give you a rough estimate of your cost.

    Welcome Aboard. I agree with the others and if it were me I would change both hoses because sure as hell the other one will leak if you don't change it. Murphy's Law you know.
