i got the end of the hose that connects to the power steering and found out that there was no fluid in the tank, and my question is what is the easiest way to get to the other end without taking everything apart or do i have to.
what exactly are you trying to do? find the leak? the hose travels to the back of the firewall and I believe it splits in different directions i believe the pump is on the driver side from what i remember
It is quite difficult to remove though. I recommend removing the black resonator box that is behind the engine (underneath the intake manifold) as it's a huge pita. To take mine out, I also removed the rear engine mount and that made it a bit easier to move. Even with that stuff out it's still a huge bitch to take out. You have to wiggle it in every direction to try and get it out without bending the flex pipes too far.
I recommend 2 people as the pipe requires some turning/twisting etc.
edit: Also remember to unplug the pressure switch (green plug) it comes off at the point where the hardline coming from the rack goes to the first flex hose.
Two people made it so much easier when I changed mine out. Also did you check the seal on your PS pump to see if its leaking? Is there fluid all over your hood where the PS pump sits. The seal in the pump takes about 5-10 mins to change and is cheap.
i could not find any leak in the hose. the oil was mostly dripping right on the where that green plug is. and it just made a mess over the years. i found out that the car had been sitting for about 8 years with only being ran a couple time just to check stuff out.
