The Jeep power steering hose is part of the hydraulic assist that your vehicle adds to your steering efforts, enhancing the force you place on the steering wheel to make turning your vehicle easier. The power steering system uses a hydraulic boost along with a gear reduction to make the front wheels respond much more smoothly and with less effort when you turn the steering wheel inside your vehicle, making cornering and slow speed maneuvers require less muscle. The power steering system helps to move the steering rack using varying levels of hydraulic pressure, carried by the power steering hose. The hydraulic pressure is directed to one end of a power cylinder, corresponding with the direction the steering wheel is turned. The difference in pressure on each end of piston inside this cylinder multiplies the force applied by the driver to help move the steering rack. When the pressure on the opposite ends of this piston is equalized, the wheels will straighten. The pressurized hydraulic fluid that causes the function of this system is carried to the piston by the Jeep power steering hose, which contains the surge of hydraulic fluid that is sent through the system every time the steering wheel is turned. The constant pressure that is exerted upon the inner surface of the Jeep power steering hose can cause a great deal of stress and wear, causing it to deteriorate over time, beginning to leak.
