Power steering problems

Hey I have a 07 srt8 jeep and I'm having trouble with the return line on my power steering system. It has come lose or completely off twice already! I have replaced the claps on it and the hose seems to be fine. I don't understand why it comes off and now my power steering pump is making some noise due to the loss of fluid when the hose come loseIf anyone has any tips or ideas please fill me in thx.

Are you using the type of clamp you squeeze or the steel strap type that has a tightening screw?
I personally have found that the screw-type can be tightened so the hose won't fall off or leak. Just don't overtighten it!

Re: Power steering problems

I put some high pressure hose clamps on the last time it came off and for some reason it came off again.
