Whats wrong with my 2004 yukon when it doesnt turn right?

This sounds like a bad valve in the rack and pinon. I just had a simalar problem on a Mitsubishi .. I replaced the rack with a A1 Cardone rebuilt rack and it cured the problem.. Rebuilding a rack is a job better left to the pro rebuilders.. you can call the teck line for A1 cardone and ask them what they think.

Rack and pinion leaking power steering fluid through boot on right hand side. is this rebuildable or do i have to replace hole thing

Hi, welcome to my name is Shawn and I will be answering your question.

It is possible to rebuild power steering racks but most mechanics have not done it in years and some require special tools to perform the procedure. Industry standard is to replace the power steering rack assembly. If there is a fluid leak in the boot the rack needs to be replaced.

I hope my assistance helped you and resolved your concern, if you need further assistance please ask.

I have a 2002 dodge caravan sport with a 3.3 engine and my power steering resovoir is empty and a puddle of power steering fluid on the ground. what is the cost and repair

Hard to guess the cost until we know the component that has failed. It could be; power steering pump, resevoir, hoses, presure switch, or steering rack. Some one will have to climb under there and see which one it is.

The most exspensive one is the steering rack which would cost about 1000.00 - 1200.00 to replace and it requires the vehicle get an alignment when the job is finished.

Hi, when you replace all of that did you put the cooler on the power steering lines , If not check and see if yours have one car, it is mount on the center support where your rack and pinion is mounted. if you down have on you need to get one there is a tsb on all caravans for this problem .Then you have to bleed power steering system. Thanks if i can help further re post.

if you have a leak from the back of the rack your sector shaft seal is defective. to replace it you need to remove the rack and do it on the bench.remove the locking nut and pull the seal from inside.if you are a rooky replace the rack with a rebuild one. good luck.
