    My sons 2003 Liberty w/the V6 has a leaking and noisy power steering pump. Its a big oily mess so I'm inclined to replace the high pressure hose along with the pump, as its not that much more work once we get things apart.

    When I look up hoses on various sites (RockAuto etc), I see there are two flavors: with and without a "Switch Port".

    IDK what a "switch port" is... never heard that term. So how do I know if I've got this port? What spot on the hose would the port be located for visual inspection? Am I just looking for a T and a sensor switch screwed in somewhere? Or does "switch" mean something else.

    Thanks in advance!

    Is the port closer or farther from the pump?

    I think that was only an 02 thing. Just look at the HP line and see if there's a electrical plug on it.
