Go to the local auto store and tell them you need to replace the hose that delivers power steering fluid in your Maxima. You can replace the hose in just a few minutes by cutting the new hose to length and then dropping it in and fastening it.

To remove the leaking hose remove the fittings at the pump and the cylinder. Start with the lowest fitting as fluid may drain out. Install the new hose reverse of how you removed the old one.

You have to get a piece of tubing made and then make sure to seat the new piping. The metal piping can be hard to bend.

In order to replace the leaking power fluid you are going to want to get a sealer. Once you have the sealer, you can seal the leak and fix the problem.
