My grandma asked me and I have no clue about cars so I'm a ask for help who knows a lot about a 1997 dodge intrepid? she says friend of hers told her that her rack pinion needs to be replaced eventually...

What is the problem that she is having with the car? IF the rack and pinion was bad, there would be steering issues. IF the heater core was plugged there would be no warm air in the cabin of the car..

Okay so if i have fixed my power steering pump have had the rack and minion looked at what else would make my power steering not work on a dodge intrepid

Some Chryslers had a variable assist PS solenoid on the rack and pinion. It lowers PS fluid pressure during higher speed driving-highway driving, but allows full PS pressure during low speed driving. It would be located on the top of the rack, towards the drivers side, and would have an electrical connection to it. If you have this feature (variable assist power steering), have a shop diagnose it. I don't know the testing procedure.
The power steering belt is tight and not slipping?

I went to drive my car to work this morning and lost the power steering feels like it locked up the leak of power steering fluidf is leaking from the rack and pinion not pump

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case then the oil seals of the rack and pinion should be replaced. If the seals are worn out it tends to leak and can definitely feel a loss of power. If it still leaks even after the replacement then the rack and pinion should be replaced.

There are instances that after oil seal replacement it still leaks it's because that the rack and pinion has severe damage.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
