Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I'm acuramstr. in a word no. Power steering return hose needs to be oil resistant and reinforced, power steering fluid will cause the hose to collapse when hot and the power steering fluid will break down the rubber in the hose . power steering return line is a special compound made for working in these conditions. If there is anything else I can do for you let me know.
