I'm glad I came across this, my power steering just went out on me yesterday on the highway. Thanks for the part number from Napa, on my way there now to grab it and will have my dealer get the intake hose for me this week so I can get the car on the road again.

Does the hose between the pump and rack not typically see issues? I'm also debating whether I should buy a new reservoir as they are cheap as well.

I'm going to look into high PSI stainless braided hoses (aeroquip) with the proper fittings to these in the long run. I used to make hoses for our formula SAE cars some years ago in school, not too difficult to get the fittings put together, fairly robust, and not too costly when you DIY.

Excellent read Calvin.

Bookmarked for future project as I just replaced my lines in Jan and it's already leaking.

Nice write up Cal. Last time I was under the car I noticed a slight leak, and yesterday's autox it was groaning by the end of the day. How much did all the parts total? I'll probably take care of it when I do my cooling system.

The guy listed it. Only $275. That's cheaper than brand new OEM lines and a reservoir....
