Asked by Mar 18, 2016 at 09:42 PM about the 2000 Dodge Durango SLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

power steering is leaking horribly. got under truck and can see fluid rinning
down the pressure hos - from fitting at pump. Should I assume that the hose
at the fitting is bad or could it be something else?

If it is at the fitting, then it just might be loose. If not, you can drain the reservoir and remove the hose. There should be a rubber o-ring, maybe a teflon seal. You can source those at your local auto parts store and replace them and reinstall the hose. Don't over tighten.
