Default Power steering high pressure hose leak.

Hello all, glad to be a part of this forum and am looking forward to all your knowledge.

I just changed my power steering pump because I lost all steering and all fluid last week. I found it easier just to pull the rad out for access to everything.

Now on to my concern. After installing the new pump and bleeding it, I have a leak from the high pressure fitting connection to the pump. Did I not tighten the nut enough, manual said 28 ft/lbs, or could this be caused by something else down line.

Thanks in advance.

Is the leak coming from where you did your tightening? Or is it somewhere along the hose, itself. Did you route the hoses so they wouldn't rub on anything? Chrysler didn't. They had a recall a few years back because they routed the hoses in some models so that they rubbed through and started leaks.

It appears to be from where I tightened it. I didn't want to over do it and know I will have to take it apart tomorrow night and see if it will tighten up any more.
