Power Steering Line Replacement

I just bought a 97 manual base and I need to replace the power steering line before the cooler. Its #17 in the diagram. I assume this is the low pressure side, can I just cut out the metal line and run rubber power steering hose or do I need to replace it?

Re: Power Steering Line Replacement

I dunno if that will work. Replacing with oem will though.


Heck, try it and report back. It's already broke, right?

Re: Power Steering Line Replacement

It most definitely will. As long as it's on the low side. According to the diagram it is. if you're gonna do that use transmission cooler hose and (hi-press) fuel hose clamps...they tighten down much better than gear clamps.

Re: Power Steering Line Replacement

Metal lines are usually high pressure...... Rubber hoses low pressure....

Be careful what you decide to do, that's all I gotta say

Re: Power Steering Line Replacement

if the rubber is crimped to the steel line....it's high pressure
if it has spring clamps or gear type clamps(OEM) it's a low pressure line

*lines going to and from coolers are low pressure lines.....always

*OEM is always the best way but if you're strapped for cash..it will work....and it won't blow apart...worst case scenario you get a lil' seepage past at the connection in really cold temperatures...

Re: Power Steering Line Replacement

I'm going to use power steering hose as a temporary fix. I can't seem to find that section of line anywhere; checked Rockauto and all of the parts stores. Does anyone have the original part number?

Re: Power Steering Line Replacement

Honda Automotive Parts

^^
Majestic says they have it. About $85.

Another option is contact prelude1897. Brian may have a used one.
If he don't car-parts.com is another option. It's a national junkyard e-store.

Re: Power Steering Line Replacement

I'd be safe and just replace with the OEM line. just cause it's a small diameter line, doesn't mean its low pressure. But I don't really know too much about the braking system. I'd rather be safe. :P

Re: Power Steering Line Replacement

I just ordered this line from Honda and was hoping for some advice. Was it the total pain that it appears to be? Thanks

It's not bad. A little tight but overall a quick fix if you're able to access the area with the car on stands or a lift. You'll probably have more trouble bleeding the system than replacing that line and cleaning up.

Re: Power Steering Line Replacement

I always use factory parts when possible but in this case you have to use factory unless you repair the original.
