My power steering fluid leaks. I was told the high pressure hose needs to be replaced, but I do not have the time or the money. Is there an inexpensive remedy to this?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Maria, Unfortunately there is no other fix for this. You don't want that hose to blow or you will lose your power steering. You can still steer the vehicle, but it will be very hard. I would recommend that you get this problem fixed. Lori Johnson
