Hello and welcome to Just answer.com, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.
The loop is the power steering fluid cooler. Here is how to replace it.
Caution: Failure to disconnect the intermediate shaft from the rack and pinion stub shaft can result in damage to the steering gear and/or intermediate shaft. This damage can cause loss of steering control, which could result in personal injury.
I was finally able to run down the and I'm ready to replace the return hose. I was reading through the instructions and see I need to remove the intermediate shaft. The instructions say to Refer to Intermediate Steering Shaft Replacment.
Can you send me those instructions? Thanks
I have the instructions in a PDF format that you can download HERE then you just click where it says “Click here to start download” Thanks
I was able to cut the hoses and tie in the new steel tubing which loops round the frame members and under the radiator support. By doing this, the bad tubing was replaced without the addition work on the steering components.
Thanks for your help.
Good Job!! Glad to hear that you got it done.
Your welcome and come again, anytime, thanks
