Default Replaced the power steering cooler.

Got around to replacing Wes'* power steering cooler today. Not to bad of a job if you have the right tools. I'll be adding a big half inch drive breaker bar with a swivel head to my shopping list, had to borrow one. Had to pick up a 6" adjustable wrench as well.

Can you see the issue?

How about now?


He will be keeping an eye on the powers steering fluid to make sure it stops leaking. Also was low on brake fluid and coolant, told him to keep an eye on those and make sure they aren't leaking.

The only issue was the connection into the power steering "block" (Nice tight space like you said). I tried for about a half hour to get unscrew it with a small adjustable wrench from both above and under the car. Finally decided to snap the line off so I could get a socket on it and borrowed a friends breaker bar. It took so little effort... There is something to be said about having the right tool for the job.
