Leaky power steering hoses

What is the best way to keep new power steering hoses from leaking at the connections? Used teflon tape before. Doesn't help. Thanks.

Re: Leaky power steering hoses

Teflon tape is not required for power steering hoses. The fittings are flare types that do not need tape. Tape will make matters worse.

Check the condition of the brass seats in your steering box for damage, as well as the male flare on the pump. All should be in good condition.
