Toyota Power Steering Hoses
Power steering hoses can eventually leak. The high-pressure hoses have to be able to hold up to 2000 pounds per square inch.
We don’t routinely replace these by any mileage, but only replace them on an as-needed basis. They usually less labor if done at the same time the power steering pump is being removed to reseal.
Some of the Toyota hoses are phenomenally expensive. Some years ago we took some leaky high-psi hoses and sent them out to be reconstructed.
That only lasted maybe a year and a half-or perhaps two at the very most-and things didn’t line up quite right for reassembly. We ended up deciding against that route for the future. So, we continue to use the hoses from Toyota, because we get the best, most reliable results that way.
