POWER STEERING FLUID LEAK

2004 Kia Sorento

Steering problem
2004 Kia Sorento 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 87k miles

we have a leak in a power steering line. It comes from the resevoir-starts as a rubber hose-becomes a metal line for about 2 feet, then becomes rubber again. It is a drip type leak, not a spray. Can this be " quik-fixed" by cutting out the small leaky section of metal and replacing with a section of rubber hose and clamps?I don't believe it's high pressure, because it only drips.(?)Mony's tight, so I can really afford a kia mechanic at this time. Thanks alot.

Hi there,

This is the high pressure hose, and it will have to be replaced as a complete unit.
