SOURCE: Power steering fluid leaking through

If the leakage is coming from the bellows on tie rod the best fix is rack & pinion replacement. Rebuilt racks are often less expensive than new. Get 2-3 estimates before you commit.

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.

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.

I keep bursting rack & pinion boots, does that mean my power steering pump is bad


no, if you have power steering fluid leaking into the boot it means your power steering piston/rod/cylinder has leaking seals.
replace the cylinder (what you attached the boots to) or rebuild the packing.

Reseal 2000 ford windstar rack and pinion


so what is the part number for a 2000 ford windstar v6 3.8L. my mechanic is quoting me $350 for part and total for part and labor about $855. his rate per hour is $90 labor. seems a little pricey. i want to order the part and have him put on and tell him i found out the labor is 3 hours at most. the sway bar links are bad too so he quoted me $202 for that which is where he has to take that off to get to rack and pinion so what is a fair price for sway bar labor if he is already doing rack and pinion? i really don't have the money for either but i have to do repair or p. steering pump can go out do he says (if the fluid leaks all way out).

2003 Town & Country can just the boot be replaced on a rack pinion 2003 chrysler town and cou


Yes, but you're probably wondering about just the rack and pinion SEAL can be replaced. I assume this because boots' function is to protect the inner tie rods from abrasive dust and water. If you're leaking fluid from the boot, its the seal that's bad. The answer to that is most likely. I can't say for sure but every other rack and pinion system I came across had serviceable seals. There will be a bit of labor involved but it should still be cheaper than replacing the whole rack.

There is power steering fluid dripping from the passenger side boot covering the rod that connects to the wheel. Could a simple replacement of the boot be the fix, or is there a problem with the main unit...


No, the boot only keeps dust out of the inner tie rod joint--it is not intended to hold back fluid. The rack will have to be rebuilt with new seals. Sorry. :o(

98 Volvo V70 GLT - Oil Pump or Valve Job?


Most common cause of ticking in these is the oil pick-up seals. Remove the pan and replace the oil pick-up tube seal, the two seals for the tube in the pan and the 2 O-rings on the right side of the pan. And dont use silicone to seal the pan back up, because it WILL leak, I highly recommend the Volvo sealant

I have a minor broken seal on my rack and pinion


There is but it's not going to help, the rack and pinion steering has large amount of pressure on it when you turn the steering wheel. If the seal is bad, sooner not later. The seal will fail and you lose all the power steering fluid and the power steering which can in turn also damage the rack and pinion. The safest and cheapest thing to do is get it repaired before it get's worst and you end up replacing the rack and pinion too. Good luck and keep me posted. be glad to help

Steering


I have researched this issue and it seems the problem may be the power steering pump, it seems it causes these kinds of loose of power assist and the resulting stiff/hard steering effort, the 1st thing to do is have the fluid checked in the pump, is it full? does it look discolored? if it is low you have a leak, if it is discolored or smells burnt then you may have steering rack issues as well, on occasion a flush of the fluid will help, many shops will flush the power steering for you at a reasonable cost compared to parts like the steering rack and pinion and the steering pump.
