    Yes there are O rings on both ends of the high pressure hose.


    have you checked around the reservoir? you have 2 o rings there that can fail too.



    This thread may help. It deals with the pump and reservoir but you can also do the o ring at the R&P easy.
    So you got a Power Steering Leak

    Don't over torque the nut. It crushes the O ring and over time you'll be right where you are.
