Yes it is the Rack. Passing fluid because of cold seal problems. The call back has expired due to years gone by.

You need to Replace the Power Steering Pump. That is also the Noise that you are Hearing.

Sounds like a bad steering rack & pinion assembly... is it only bad in one direction or both...?
If both then it's the rack assembly... Hope this helps...;-)

Red this article:

Eventhough the level is right, the fluid might need replacing (every 3~5 years and 50.000-100.000 miles).

You can read how to recognize bad/old fluid here: http://www.hondaclub.com/forum/articles/1492-power-steering-fluid-lifeline-your-steering-system.html

Everytime i turn my steering wheel it sounds like something is wrong wit my power steering and there is fluid in there maybe tha belt?


Power steering pumps begin to make a loud whirring noise when you turn the wheel. As long as you have fluid and the power steering is working there is no damage occurring. But either gets worse it is time to change the power steering pump.
As for the belt if it is serpentine style. (Long and makes many turns) then the belt is fine. If it is the V-belt style (old style) only on 2-3 pulleys max then just make sure it feels snug.

I went to reverse my car off the drive and my steering wheel has gone totally stiff and the battery light came on although has since gone off the steering wheel will not turn???


Check to make sure your alternator belt hasnt snapped, the same belt usually drives the power steering.

Hope this helps

Rattling Noise


The power steering pump could be going bad. The noise coming from the catalytic converter could be something as simple as a mounting bracket coming loose, or worst case something busted internally.

Steering is stiff


the problem could be contamination in ps fluid.i would flush the system and replace fluid first .if that does not solve the pronlem you most likely need power steering pump. the steerjng box is very unlikely.
