SOURCE: 1999 dakota rack and pinion leak

You can change the seal, but the new one will most likely leak soon after, the seal starts leaking because of problems in the rack from wear, I would try it but if it leaks soon after replace the rack, they are cheap rebuilt.

SOURCE: How do I install driver side inner tie rod on my

you don't need to remove the whole rack but do need a special tool called inner tie rod tool. can be bought or borrowed form most auto parts stores. first remove wheel. next loosen the jam nut on inner tie rod at the end of outer tie rod. remove cotter pin and nut on outer. use seperator or pickle fork to seperate outer from knuckle. then remove the clamps on boot and remove. then take tie rod tool and find the right size end and turn with 1/2" ratchet or breaker bar. it will turn hard at first cause of it being staked on to the threads. when it is off install new part with loc-tite on threads and tighten. when tight crimp inner flanges with either plier or hammer and punch to the rack. install in reverse order. remember to measure distance from clamp on outer side of boot to jam nut so you can get the alignment close until you get to shop for alignment.

SOURCE: rack and pinion leak

It needs replaced a rebuilt unit cost $350.00 and you need the tools to remove the tie rod ends and you have to unhook the steering wheel, if you have a hoist it's not to bad but a do it yourselfer it's a pretty big job, the fluid is that color because it's sucking air into the fluid because of the leak and the shaking is caused by one side not holding hydrolic pressure because of the leak and wore out inner tierod ends. If you do do it you need a whole lot more information and much more instructions to do it, afterwords it will have to be alingned, having done it before and having the proper air tools I can do one in three hours. You might take a week but it would be a learning experince.

SOURCE: how do i change a rack and pinion bellow on a 98

The bellows is just a dust cover. If fluid is leaking from the bellows, the rod seal is bad. It's usually cheaper to replace the rack than it is to rebuild it.

It should screw in to the pump and rack and pinion. If not you may have to buy a new pump.

There are inner and outer tie rods that can be replaced. The inner tie rod disconnects under the boot. They rent tools to get the inner tie rod off.

1997 chevy lumina stalls when turning

My first thought would be the power steering pump is out of fluid, or that your pump is faulty and seizing. A rack and pinion going bad can also cause this.

How to fix rack and pinion on 1999 chevy silverado 1500

Since this is a truck, you have a gearbox instead of a rack and pinion.
I would expect you to find a faulty ball joint or control arm problem.
I would recommend taking it to a tire shop or someone who does alignments. And get at least two different estimates.

My 1999 Chevy Cavalier has difficulty turning. While I'm driving and about to make a turn, my steering wheel appears to only turn about half way making it hard to complete the turn until I violently yank...

the most probable cause is the rack and pinion steering system. check for leaks in system, make sure if its full of power steering fluid.. if all checks ok, then its in the rack and pinion. that causes binding. I had a car that did the samething on turns. it was the rack doing this.

How do i change the rack and pinion in a 97 lumina?

In most cases the rack assembly comes out through the wheel compartment on one side or the other. You must remove the tie rod ends, power steering lines and then the rack itself.
