Hey Scotty. I accidentally took off a power steering return line hose on my sisters 02 Acura MDX. I put it back on but when I turned the car on I heard the power steering pump whining for a bit. At the time I didn't know what it was. After it Idled for a little longer I heard a loud pop. It turned out to be one of the power steering return lines. I put the return hose back on and tightened the clamp really tight. I then refilled the power steering fluid, did the lock to lock thing and started it up. A different end of the power steering return line hose came off. I then tightened that one really tight and started it up. But it ended up cracking the hose and power steering fluid was all over the place again. I replaced the hose and clamps but it keeps popping off. I don't know why this is happening. The return line shouldn't have so much pressure that it pops off, I think. I'm thinking its the pump but some are telling me its the rack and pinion which i'm hoping isn't the case. Do you know what's wrong?
