Pinpoint the location of the leak before you replace any thing. It could be coming from anywhere, example: valve cover gasket, rad. overflow bottle, leftover oil from oil change. Fluids can really fly when you driving sixty.

Is it possible for power steering fluid to get into the engine and mix with the oil? I am loosing fluid and there are no visible leaks, the engine oil and filter was recently changed and now has turne


No, the power steering is entirely a separate and sealed system, wholly external to the engine. The power steering pump pushes the fluid through a high pressure hose into the rack and pinion-the steering gear mounted below and behind the engine-and holds pressure within the rack that enables power assisted steering. At the same end where the power steering fluid hose enters the gear will be a fitting for a return line back to the fluid reservoir. These two hoses are usually routed close together at least part of the way, some may even be held together with brackets. Leaks could develop at the pump, the fluid reservoir, or the two hoses to and from the rack and pinion, or the seals inside the rack and pinion may have failed. You should be able to find the leak-it will only leak to the outside-to check the rack and pinion for leaks, right where your tie rods come out of the gear and go to the wheels for steering, will be a small rubber boot encasing the tie rod and the end of the rack assembly-on both ends is a boot and a tie rod-peel back the rubber boot from the gear ass\'y, it should be dry. If a lot of fluid, the seals in the rack and pinion are gone. It will have to be replaced.
Hopefully you will find a leaking hose or fractured reservoir, but keep looking, air flow may be blowing the leaking fluid back and under the car. Good luck, hope it\'s not the rack and pinion.

Rack and pinion? have play in wheel no sign of leaks new power steering pump installed


Hi Gunny, If your vehicle is fitted with rack and pinion steering also check the rack ends for play. The rack ends are the rods which the tie rod ends screw onto. The other end fits onto the rack of the rack and pinion. To work on those you will need to remove the rubber boots and loosen the locking washer, they can then be loosened with a wrench. If they are worn the play will be evident in the steering. When replacing them also replace the rubber boots. If the boots are worn and road grime and dust enters, you will see leakage from the rack and pinion in the near future. I always thought the Dakota was fitted with a steering box? Regards John

Car is hard to steer all of a sudden, sometimes ok, sometimes worse, sudden onset, steering fluid good


The problem that you are expierencing may be coming from you'r rack and pinion. This device works like a shock that has oil and hydrolics that use powersteering fluid pressure to help you'r vehicle turn easier. You mentioned that the fluid was ok, but just to be on the safe side you may want to look underneath to see if the rack itself is leaking anywhere on it. Another cause may be associated with the powersteering pulley, which if not working will cause there to be no powersteering at all so you can most likely knock that possibility out of the way. The rack and pinion or possible gear box may be the most likely of the two that can be causing the problem.

Hope this Helps!

Powersteering always leaking.checked the hoses and the pump looked fine to us. its seem to spray at the end of its turns. but no can spot the leak


ok. if the hoses and pump seems dry and it sprays near the end of the travel, then i'd hate to say it, but i would be checking the steering gear or the rack and pinion. Probably a bad boot or loose clamp. But that sure sounds like a faulty hose problem. Over time they do wear out and will cause leaks like that. If fluid is going down, and nothing is leaking externally, then i would suspect the rack and pinion s faulty. Good luck!

How do you bleed the Rack and Pinion for a 99 Hyundai Accent?


hi from uk if you are referring to power steering ? you do not bleed as you do brakes you preferably rais front wheels off ground then ensure vehicle supported then with engine running and the p/steer reservoir kept to full turn the steering from left to right fully for a few times this ensures any air in system is expelled from rack and hydraulic lines back to reservoir and out keep oil level check so level does not fall low as to air induction into system then lower car and check p/steer operation hope this helps ps make final check for any leaks for a couple of days as a precaution ?

Powerstearing leaking oil


Have the steering gearbox checked.  If fluid loss was severe.  Wear in steering box causes excessive play in steering controls.  Take on one concern at a time.  They do not seem to be related
