Question From axle1320 on Replacing power steering hoses
I have a 1997 Buick Regal GS, 3.8 Supercharged. One of the power steering hoses seems to be leaking. I have some mechanical ability, can anyone tell me how difficult this job might be. The pump is in a miserable place, looking into the engine bay its in the lower left rear opposite the coolant bottle. Thanks, Chuck

Mitchell labor guide calls for .9 hrs for pressure hose, 1.0 hrs. for return hose. Must not be too tough.

Be sure it the hose and where. Clean the area and watch the leak return if the least bit unsure. There's a pressure and return line. Just general but most pressure hoses will be pre-made with fancy connections like the flare nuts used elsewhere in automotives or perhaps something different. Make sure you have the tools for getting to the fittings + fasteners. If rusted it's that much harder and if unfamiliar or too short of tools you may want to pass on this.
Tools like this.......
Those being "Crow Foot Flare Nut Wrenches" you can buy just the size needed or a set - handy suckers to get at and use with your usual ratchets, flex handles etc. They also come in longer wreches and plain open end which really won't work on flared tubing connection - at least for removal,

Hey - I wanted to add to that: Several GM models of this vintage used either a long loop that was under side cris-crossing where road rocks could harm it OR a small radator as part of return line. If the whole problem is just metal line or a mini radiator inline think about costs and do just a section of the metal as you might for brake lines. For heat tranfer (if that radiator thing is too expensive) make up and series of line where it was depending on budget, type of use expected etc.
I have replaced one of those cooling radiator type return lines in I think a 95 Buick LeSabre which rusted out - low use car in a temperate climate did fine without the original - synthetic ATF used as replacement PS fluid......
