Not without completely reconditioning the steering rack, no.

In practice, it's always far quicker to fit an exchange steering rack. It costs a bit more than DIY but you're up and running faster, don't need to invest in special tools and you get a warranty on the entire unit.

I replaced the power steering pump, still have leaking and now smoke and noise and hard to tun

You may have put the hoses on in the wrong places or they are not tight enough and allowing the pressure to leak.

My power steering fluid is leaking

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Where does it leak? On the rack and pinion or on the power steering tank? If it's from the tank then it's just gonna be a hose problem will surely need replacement. If it's underneath the rack and pinion then the oil seals are surely worn out. This will need to be pulled out to gain access to the rack and pinion oil seals. Once they are replaced it will surely stop the leak.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I went to drive my car to work this morning and lost the power steering feels like it locked up the leak of power steering fluidf is leaking from the rack and pinion not pump

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

If that's the case then the oil seals of the rack and pinion should be replaced. If the seals are worn out it tends to leak and can definitely feel a loss of power. If it still leaks even after the replacement then the rack and pinion should be replaced.

There are instances that after oil seal replacement it still leaks it's because that the rack and pinion has severe damage.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I have an 1995 Volvo 850 and believe there is engine oil leaking between the engine and transmission. What would be my best course of action

It sounds like the rear oil seal on the oil base pan is leaking......You have to remove the base pan and replace the front and rear oil seal.They just sit in the grouve of the oil pan.You can also try retorqueing the bolts first to see if they came loose over time. Hope this helps.

I have a leaky hose above the lower radiator hose on my 1995 volvo 850 2.4 engine,is this a coolant line to the transmission or to the power steering? PLEASE NO SPAM OR ADVERTISING,AND DO NOT SHARE E-MAIL

determine this by looking to see if the coolant line leads to the transmission (bell housing made of aluminum in general) or it leads to the power steering pump (belt driven)

Power steering fluid leaks quickly out 1989 Volvo 740 GLE wagon

The most obvious places are the Power steering rack itself - at each end, and the hoses that are attatched to it.
A leak at the pump is easily spotted.

Hoses are cheaper to replace than seals on the rack (which may require a new unit)

Heater doesn't work;defroster donn't work.

If you are losing ATF then the steering rack will be leaking at one of the ends. Look under the car for puddles of the stuff. The gators will be oily. Replace the rack, do not get it repaired.

The check engine light is another story. You will need to get the codes pulled.
