Hi

You should not be afraid to take it back to your mechanic, and tell him that he has not cured the problem.

Possibly it is one of the steering rack pipes that just needs tightening, or it is a high pressure hose faulty, or the pump, or at the worst, maybe the new steering rack is faulty, and he can then sort out a replacement under warranty.

Put some cardboard on the floor, and try to get a pin point, as to the exact source of the drip, this is the true crux of the matter.

Good Luck !


A FixYa rating would be appreciated Please !

Steering rack leaking fluid


Check the power steering hose to the end at the steering rack. There is a good chance that the hose may be leaking or where the hose connects to the steering rack is where your leak is coming from. Note that power steering fluid is flammable and if sprayed on any hot surface like the exhaust manifold may cause in a car fire. Good luck and Auto Zone should have the replacement hose with the step by step instructions to replacing it.

Stearing


if the rack is leaking then the only option to repair it is to replace it with a remanufactured rack.the noise is probably the power steering pump because it is low on fluid.

Powerstearing leaking oil


Have the steering gearbox checked.  If fluid loss was severe.  Wear in steering box causes excessive play in steering controls.  Take on one concern at a time.  They do not seem to be related
