Power Steering Fluid leaking
Good day, all.
95 Chevy Silverado, 5.7 V8. Power Steering fluid coming out fairly significantly. The power steering is working okay until it gets real low; then it still works but has some new noises that warn me I need to add some. (I know, I should check it more often.)
Anyway, if the pump is still working should I just look at new hoses? Should I change pump and hoses? How easy/hard is it? My Haynes manual is back in Dallas and I am in Houston right now. Any thoughts?
Thanks95 Chevy Silverado

Thanks for the reply. Does the system have to be bled or anything when refilled after changing hoses?

Just leave the cap off and turn the tires lock to lock a few times with the engine running, this should get any air out.:cool:

Followup: You guys were correct; it was the high pressure hose. After buying yet another metric wrench to add to my collection I was able to change the hose, and haven't lost a drop since. The burning fluid spell from all the leakage is just about gone too! Thanks for all the replies.
