    Hey y'all. 1997 legacy outback wagon 2.5l manual. Gen 1. Don't know if if matters but its a 97 before the redesign in April so I usually shop for a 96. My ps pump has been seeping a little but nonstop on top the engine giving me the disgusting automatic transmission vape hit every now and then...

    Backstory- bought car in spring 2020, had a few issues but all resolved easily. Power Steering has always been weak and I knew it leaked a little, but totally usable. Recently (January 2021) got timing belt replaced by mechanic and had him do new power steering belt and AC belt as well. Few days...

    2006 Subaru Outback 2.5xt turbocharged. I've been having to top off my power steering fluid and it started to whine. Replaced the pump, with the old pulley and pressure switch. I still have a leaking problem. I believe my pressure switch in the back is bad. I can't find it anywhere online to...

    Hello, I have broken my power steering hose bolt. I went to replace the o-ring on the suction hose and when tightening I snapped the 10mm bolt. Also, a lot of fluid went bubbling out of the reservoir after I started the car and turned the wheel lock to lock. I did this 20 times. Please note...

    Is this a common occurrence? Last time I installed a new rack, had to replace the pump then could steer. Same thing is happening when I installed a new rack again. New rack is Mavel brand. What's the give? Even the old crap rack with the same pump didn't have trouble steering. Now it's hard...

    My 2010 Outback 2.5 seems to be having a hard time with its power steering. When I am stopped, if I turn the steering wheel the engine boggs down like it is struggling to supply enough power to the steering pump. When I turn while moving its much better but still feels heavy. I initially...

    I have recently changed my rack and pinion as well as my power steering pump because of issues with screeching which I neglected, and eventually led to the bearing inside the power steering pump to completely deteriorate. However even after changing the power steering pump and rack I still...

    Power steering pumps leaking from seals seems to be pretty common. I recently developed a very bad leak on my 2006 2.5 OB Limited. Doing some research, it seemed that many people have had the pump leak from the top elbow hose connection. My pump is leaking on the driver’s side face. This is...
