hello just new today and have a question what else would i be here for I had a p/s pressure hose replacer on my 2002 envoy the people at the shop cut the hose where it crosses the cross member and fits into the holder and installed a 3/8 peice of pipe and two hose clamps. Is this a common practice because of the trouble putting the line in? thank you

unless they used special crimping tools and a special fitting for high pressure hydraulic lines I would not trust a spliced high pressure power steering line. I would replace the whole hose.

power steering for the Envoy is set between 1500 t0 1600 by the relief valve. is the repair rated for that much pressure? if it is then you should be fine. but, I would want to make sure.

if the pressure line is one piece then yes they should be replacing the whole thing. if the line originally was a multi-piece line they would only replace the part that was damaged
