Question about 2005 Dodge Dakota
Power steering fluid leaking badly and I noticed it looked pink in color. I have never seen pink power steering fluid. It seems to be leaking at the pump itself.
You are likely seeing auto trans fluid. It is often used as a substitute for power steering fluid. You say it's leaking badly so someone probably got tired of paying for power steering fluid and switched to the much cheaper ATF.

Ok, in this case, you will need to replace the entire assembly. this is best. replace the power steering pump as well. If the hoses are worn, replace them as well.

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.

There is an opening on the top of your timing cover sealed off with a rubber plug. Remove the plug to gain sightful access to inside your timing. But first I suggest you clean your engine first ot all grease and build up caused by your leak. In diong so, you will have a clearer idea of where the leak is actually coming from. I just rebuilt a 2000 neon, so if you need some info on anything , I have your info.

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
