    Elantra 05 needs a new power steering pump, 80k's and very slow leak.
    Repair shop say's pump cost is $400 from dealer and $200 labor. I've
    searched them online for above and below $100. Any input?

    Go to a salvage yard. You didn't search very hard online. Google
    immediately returns an ebay motors link for $69.

    Power steering pumps are pretty easy to repair. it is probably just an
    'O' ring that has split.

  4. It also seems to me that $200 is WAY high for labor, considering that
    the pump it easily accessible. Replacing it shouldn't take more than an
    hour. Sounds like time to find another repair shop.

    Also you can get some seal stuff at an auto store that you put in the pwr
    steering oil, worth a try and it is only a couple of bucks.

    Probably the worst advice to ever give. Miracle sealants seldom do much
    more than gunk up the systems they are used in. They aren't even good for
    an emergency repair since they are about guaranteed to cost you much more in
    final repairs. Best just to fix it right.

    Given how new the car is, I agree...but I have to say that I'd fed PS fluid
    with stop leak to a car that I knew I wasn't going to keep much longer. The
    stuff only slowed the leak, but it didn't seem to gunk up anything......put
    36000 more miles on the the car....all for probably 15 bucks in fluid.

    The pump is indeed expensive, but $200 does seem a little high for labor.
    If you want factory and new, you'll need to open your wallet for the

    An Hour and forty minutes is the figure I came up with.

    Found a deal. Advanced Auto Supply, $114 for new pump and Midas
    Muffler Shop will do work for $130 including alignment.
