    Sometimes it leaks from the power steering lines, but if it's leaking from the "rack", you will need to replace the rack.

SOURCE: pinion seal leaking

check your rear diff vent if pluged clean it out and clean up the pinion seal.sometimes if the leak is caused by pluged vent and has not been leaking long once vent is clean sometimes the leak will stop.there is not a specific torque amount because it is rotational torque(how hard to turn pinion).there is a crush sleve on the pinion and if torqued too tight or too loose brg preload will be wrong and brg damage could result.mark and remove drive shaft.remove rear wheels,brakes,axles.so when turning pinion you dont have any drag from brakes or axles.mark the position of the yoke on the pinion.remove yoke,replace seal,reinstall yoke be sure to replace pinion nut.tighten nut until it takes the exact same amount of force to turn pinion as before taking original pinion nut off.hope this helps.

SOURCE: what do bellow boots do?

all they do is keep dirt and water from getting into the steering unit, they are seals, if your steering is acting up it is to late, the damage has been done by the torn boot.

SOURCE: Rear Main Seal leak on 1996 toyota camry, 6 cyl sedan automomatic

Rear main crank seals are very difficult and time consuming to replace. The seal doesn't cost that much - it is the labor/tiime it takes because --- you've got to take the whole car apart --- that is both
front CV joints have to come out -- then the tranny has to come out - I have a 1996 Camry and it has an irritating rear main seal at 147,000 miles and I have not had it fixed because the shops tell me it will cost around $650 to $800 for them to do it --- $1200 is pretty excessive for that job!

Your power rack and steering is not so hard -- most shops in this area would charge $650 max for that job including the price of the new rack and pinion. Pretty easy job -- half the cost is labor - the other is for parts.

Any more questions --- reply to manuel.conde@motivaent.com

SOURCE: rack and pinion leak

It needs replaced a rebuilt unit cost $350.00 and you need the tools to remove the tie rod ends and you have to unhook the steering wheel, if you have a hoist it's not to bad but a do it yourselfer it's a pretty big job, the fluid is that color because it's sucking air into the fluid because of the leak and the shaking is caused by one side not holding hydrolic pressure because of the leak and wore out inner tierod ends. If you do do it you need a whole lot more information and much more instructions to do it, afterwords it will have to be alingned, having done it before and having the proper air tools I can do one in three hours. You might take a week but it would be a learning experince.

SOURCE: how do i change a rack and pinion bellow on a 98

The bellows is just a dust cover. If fluid is leaking from the bellows, the rod seal is bad. It's usually cheaper to replace the rack than it is to rebuild it.

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.

How to replace a rack and pinion seal kit on a 98


You do not repair a rack & pinion,you replace it,
then add an inline return, magnetic filter, or your warranty
is void

You can replace the inner tie rods or the bellows

To get the bellows on, you will have to remove the
outer tie rod & then have it aligned later

1999 mercury sable gs rack and pinion seal


if the leak is coming out the seal behind the tie rod bellows then replace the steering rack as special tools are required to change this and chances are the housing is worn anyways. if its the seal at the input shaft were the steering column connects to the rack then you can change this seal.

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).

Leaking excessive amounts of power steering fluid from left front rack and pinion boot, could the inner tie rod seal be blown out? and how much work to replace and adjust new rack and pinion?


you Could find a new or rebuilt rack for two or three hundred bucks plus about two hours of labor. Then you will need to have a wheel alignment. So around $500-$600 total. Good Luck.
