I turned my wheel all the way to the left when backing up and when I did that I felt a pop and my power steering stopped working. Fluid was leaking as well. Did a hose break? What would be your suggestions to do?
Do you

Good morning,

Yes, it sounds like a pressure hose fails.

I attached the replacement hoses for you to view.

You will need an 5/8 wrench to remove the fitting from the pump for the pressure hose.

You will need an 18mm crows foot to release the lines from the steering box.

Once you have the hoses changed, add your fluid and let it idle for a couple minutes.
