This sounds like a blown seal however I do not recommend using any stop leak products. There are several valves in the system and anything that might seal the leak would also clog the valves.Take this to a shop or replace on your own.

Steering wheel turn all the way around no control


If your steering wheels turns all the way but your wheels don't:
This would have to be either a broken rack and pinion(steering gear) or the shaft between the rack and pinion and the steering wheel would have to be broken. This would need to be visually inspected to be sure which is the problem.

I would have to guess that your steering wheel is no longer connected to the rack (as opposed to something in the rack breaking). My best guess is that your steering column shaft snapped.

They can be replaced, and the necessary parts are sold, but it's not the easiest thing in the world to replace.

stick your head down under the dash on the driver's side where the brake and gas pedals are, and look up at the steering shaft (can't miss it). Now turn the steering wheel. Does that shaft turn?

Replace rack pinion


He is probably telling you the truth as most cars have around 4 turns lock to lock. The clicking sound you are hearing is the turn indicator switch under the wheel clicking as you go past the fingers that activate the lever to off position. The only thing I would check first is that the steering shaft coupling onto the pinion shaft is tight and the clamp bolt is still there. Otherwise it will be a new/reconditioned rack and pinion box

could be that your rack and pinion is going out try draining the power sterring fluid and make sure you know how much came out and then put in some fulid and to top it off put in some Seafoam trans tune and drive it around for about 30 to 50 minutes and that should fix the problem it beats buying a new rack and pinion their expensive

Power sterring fluid is leaking.how much will it cost to fix?


when power steering is leaking. you need a new rack and pinion. you need to find out if you need it rough or smooth and prices vary pedending on make and model and the labor is extra. rack and pinions can run from $437 and up and that does not include labor. call a auto parts and ask them to look up a rack and pinion for the make and model of your car then you can call and see how much labor will cost but alot of places want you to buy the part from them which can be more expensive

1999 dakota rack and pinion leak


You can change the seal, but the new one will most likely leak soon after, the seal starts leaking because of problems in the rack from wear, I would try it but if it leaks soon after replace the rack, they are cheap rebuilt.

Check engine light


low power steering fluid wont but low power steering pressure can. there is a switch in the rack that sends messages to the pcm.the switch can be replaced separate from the rack.if the rack is leaking it needs replaced but if the switch is leaking it can be replaced separate.
