Okay, Nancy told me that I needed to replace two air conditioning hoses, not power steering!

My roommate told me to purchase bottles of power steering fluid from the 99 store, but I do not like the idea of dripping power steering fluid all over Arizona. Also, I told him about power steering fluid saturating the alternator belt on my Prelude and my alternator going out.

Some shop also convinced me to replace my rack and pinion, also claiming that power steering fluid ruined it.

He told me to charge up my refrigerant, that is what he does every six weeks.

I really do not like the idea of dripping that!

I found "A" AC hoses on starting at $45, although I wonder what the other hose was, if two were leaking.

The power steering hose starts at $40 and one place has both!

Should I order them? I just looked at my repair manual and did not see anything relevant.
