Wj power steering pressure hose leaking
I have had a small leak for awhile. I cleaned up the motor with engine degreaser to see if i could find the leak. At first I thought it was the actual pump that was leaking. So i purchased a new pump and installed it. Leak of course came back and was ten times worse. Once again i cleaned everything up and checked again. Of course it had to be the high pressure hose. So i went down to the dealer. They told me that the hose is on National back order and they dont see this hose coming in till June. WTF? So I decided to stop by autozone, oreillys, advance, and Napa. Nobody carrys a aftermarket part for this. I went down to Custom Hose, a local shop, and even they cant help me. The only thing they said they are missing is that actual fitting that goes into the pump. I feel I have exhausted all of my resources. Does anyone have any idea on what I should do now. This jeep is my daily driver. I have no other car to borrow or anything. Im going thru a quart a day of power steering fluid. Its now been a week with this major leak and good thing I have a warranty on my new pump cause im about to blow this one!

Is repairing considered a modification?
