Replacing the gearbox

Leaking ps fluid out of the gearbox. Is this something I can replace? I'm by no means a certified mechanic, but I know my way around a car fairly well. How difficult is it to switch it out?

NO POWER STEERING with leak could it be the rack the leak is in the center below the the motor


Yes, that is where the rack is. But if it is a hose or hose fitting that is leaking, it is not as bad as the rack itself leaking. Big expense there, replacing a rack and pinion gear assembly. Where you see the leaking fluid would be about where the PS hoses connect to the rack, so you should have it looked at to really know how bad it is.

2002 Lincoln continental leaking power steering fluid at the rack after replacing PS pump


The rack has outer seals, one on each side. Its possible that one of these seals has failed. OR, If not, hopefully the technician who replaced the pump might not have properly tightened one of the hoses going to the rack, or he didn't use a good o-ring on it.

How would I know if the rack and pin is going out on my 1991 buick lasabre


Hard to steer, leaking fluid all over the place.
Check and make sure the power steering fluid is full before taking it to a mechanics, if the power steering is full and it's still hard to turn or more difficult than before AND is NOT leaking fluid everywhere it could be the PS pump.

My repair man says I need a PS Cooler. He said the part cost is aprox $45 with the total including labor aprox $140. I would like to know if a decent back yard mechanic should be able to replace this...


yes, you dont need a tech to replace this, not sure the year make or model but the power steering cooler is just a line bent around to cool the fluid before it comes back to the pump, its a cut and dry job. good luck.

this is not a weekend mechanics type job because you could damage something else taking it out.best advice is to fit a manual gearbox which here in spain you could buy from a accident damaged car with the flywheel and clutch and starter motor for around 300€ need to change the drive shafts as well i think

Power steeing fluid leaks


try replacing the o ring or use double o rings between the reservoir and pump, pressure builds from use and the fluid blows out of this o ring even after the vehicle is off. When the dealer replaces the pump they re-use the reservoir and o ring so the problem does not get fixed. The fluid runs down the pump and the lines to the rack, instead of washing the engine and observing where the fluid is leaking from, they replace good parts until they find the problem. Sometimes one o ring isn't enough.
