Fair Cost to Replace Leaking P/S Hose on 2004 Accord?

Hi all,

A couple of weeks ago I had my local Honda Dealership do an oil change and they told me that my P/S hose was leaking.

At the time they gave me an estimate of $160 for parts and $350 for labor. They said I didn't really need to have it done immediately but that I would want to have it check again the next time I came in for an oil change and just to watch for any kind issues.

Well today, I noticed kind of weird smell coming from my car and then I noticed some white smoke coming from the right hand side of the hood. I am not getting an warning lights so I am assuming this is the leak they were talking about.

So my first question is price that Honda quoted me for the whole job, $510, a fair price or should I be able to find a comptetent local mechanic to do it for less?

Secondly, how long can I drive my car like this? Honda said my car could start on fire but then my father in law said that's pretty rare and that he would just top off the P/S fluid until i get get it fixed. Any advice on this will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I just checked, it has (2) 10mm screws at pump, (1) 10mm at valve cover, (1) 10mm at sub frame, & 17mm or 19mm at rack. I would not pay that kind of money to replace. DIY.

I also noticed a low pressure return from rack to pump, that is leaking right above exhaust manifold on mine.

High pressure is $93.00, lower pressure is $13.00 from

I assume you are talking about the high pressure hose, which I got from an online dealership for $100 ($160 is dealer inflated). Changing the high pressure hose is not easy, and not something a novice should try. I'm sure you could have the hose replaced for a couple hundred less, but good and cheap mechanics are hard to find.

Just had it replaced on a 2005 EXL 6 Cylinder automatic. I used my neighborhood mechanic, part and labor was $342.00.

Just got some smoke from this leaking hose the other day. Upon closer inspection the leak is coming from right behind the bracket that holds the rubber part of the hose just before the hose goes down behind the engine.

There is no fluid leaking where the metal part of the hose attaches to the rack. Will the entire hose need to be replaced or is it just some issue around that bracket that can be easily/cheaply fixed? I would love to save myself $300-400 if anyone had some insight.
Thanks-

I don't think you can fix the hose. It's a high pressure hose, so regular hoses and clamps will not work. I bought the hose from an online Honda dealer for $95 and changed it myself. It's not easy.

Getting hosed, on a hose, is only natural. I'm guessing about $300 at a dealership.

$435 in fact at the dealer.

$899 to replace timing belt, water pump, belt, front seals, coolant sound reasonable?

Not really. I would replace the tensioner and pulleys. If those were included, it would be a good price. They made a killing on the power steering hose.
