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.

How can transmmision fluid leak from rack and pinion


No, no, it just can't. Only power steering fluid goes in and out of the rack and pinion. Transmission fluid travels through the cooler lines (a supply and return line) to the radiator or a separate cooler in front of the radiator. Check again. Is it transmission fluid or power steering fluid? Transmission fluid may be leaking onto the rack and pinion.

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!

If the line from the power steering pump to the rack and pinion is leaking, replace it.

If the rack and pinion is leaking replace it.

If the power steering pump itself is leaking, then replace it.

Which section is leaking?

2005 dodge caravan, leaking power steering fluid(rack n pinion), i am using lucas power steering stop leak. How long can i go with(lucas) before i replace the rack? fluid is not leaking anymore...


I really wouldn't push it more than 3 months or especially if climate change once the leak stop has stopped the leak it doesn't like temp change. but i've done radiator stop leak from Lucas and went 6 months before the leak appeared again. good luck
