Rack and pinion transmission problem

I took my Nissan Sentra 89 to the mechanic to replace the rack and pinion,when my car was returned to me the gears were not working drive or reverse were not functioning this person is not my regular mechanic i was thinking may be he had something to do with it so he could make more money or may be just my bad luck or do they have to touch the transmission to replace the rack and pinion?

If it worked before they touched it its their responsibility to put it right free of charge ,something has been left disconnected and the mechanic should have sorted it before the car was returned ,if you have a receipt with a tax number on it seek legal advice if you havent go and ask nicely with two of your biggest mates with you

Not necessarily any thing you have done except put the units under the pressure they were design to operate at and that has shown up the weak seals . The bushes in the rack and pinion wear out and now the worn seals cannot control the pressures escaping past the worn rack seals. Have a steering specialist check it out but the replacement part or work to be done will not be cheap

How can transmmision fluid leak from rack and pinion

No, no, it just can't. Only power steering fluid goes in and out of the rack and pinion. Transmission fluid travels through the cooler lines (a supply and return line) to the radiator or a separate cooler in front of the radiator. Check again. Is it transmission fluid or power steering fluid? Transmission fluid may be leaking onto the rack and pinion.

89 nissan sentra axle going in and out of transmission when i had it up on a lift & engaged. What hold that in?

The axle (called a "Half shaft" in front wheel drive cars) is held in by a internal round Snap Ring, either this snap ring is damaged or the axle is badly worn or the groove the round snap ring expands into is worn and not retaining the axle. Replace the 1/2 shaft first, it the problem persists you will need to replace the transmission side case casting

Have a competent shop look at your steering rack. They go bad without leaking, internal seals go bad and don't hold constant pressure.
