Depends what make and model you mean, but if a power steering rack, good repair is beyond most DIY because it takes special tools, and these steering boxes can be quite difficult to take out.

Most faulty units would be repaired by replacement, with a remanufactured one.

Thank you for your previous answer about the oil. What causes power steering to jerk when making a turn?

jerking can be a seal in the steering rack has gone the the pressure is building up on the opposite side. this would push the steering in the opposite way to how you want to turn the vehicle. it would require the steering rack to be replaced or repaired at a repair shop, sometimes it just as cheaper to just replace the rack, . sme repair shop can repair the rack but you would need to remove it or the charge will cost more if they have to remove it.

My steering wheel turns but it doesn't turn the wheels on the car... I dropped my girl off at work and came home and as I was parking it stated to Lock up on me, when I finally parked, the steering wheel...

Sounds like something broke. Either in the steering column or the linkage between the column and the rack and pinion. Take it to a reliable repair shop for examination and repair. Best case scenario is the linkage between the column and rack and pinion came apart but I have never heard of it happening. Worse case scenario you need a new column or rack and pinion. You don't say what make and model of your vehicle is.

1996 Nissan maxima steering gear

Yes, but it is usually cheaper and better to buy a remanufactured steering rack. Remember to get the car realigned after replacing the rack. Also top off the lost power steering fluid.

If power steering pump is replaced, is it possible to damage the steering rack during the replacement of the pump?

NO. The rack usually fails because no one changes P/S Fluid every two years or so. Now if a new rack is installed and you don't flush the cooler and install a filter in the return line,you loose the new rack again from contamination from the first rack. That's a common poor work practice,even though every rack comes with a tag and instructions warning of this.

Steering rack

its possible that the mounting bushings for the rack are bad have the mechanic show you the mounts and look if they are wore out you can tell they wont look like they fit the car. the tierods warranty should have been extended when they were replaced. check with the dealer with a reminder that they were replaced.also check for recalls on your car on the internet. that might answer your problems
