My Q is hemorrhaging
My new (to me) '87 5kcstq has started to hemorrhage powerstearing fluid.
I know this is common on these cars, but from my understanding, it is usually
the rack or the pump that goes. In my case, it looks like the fluid is comming
from the hose. On the pressure hose going from the pump to the rack, there is a
metal tube section that leads into the rubber section. It looks like this is
where the fluid is escaping, but it's getting hard to tell with so much fluid
around. Does this sound likley? Or am I being decieved. The local auto parts
store want $155 for the hose, sound resonable?
