This process is a bench process. Pull the box, and put in vice, measuer the amount if force requried to turn the box past the absolute center point and compare to spec for your vehicle.

Alternatively, some guys just tighten the box a little, and take it for a drive and feel the exact load at dead center, and to cross back and forth through that position. Too much is obvious.

Power streering went and fluid is pouring out the bottom? I need to know if this is a rack and pinion system.

Possibly, but more likely a break in the high pressure hose that runs from the power steering pump to the rack and pinion assembly.

Power streering leak, smoke under hood for 1996 Geo Prizm

Yes , power steering fluid will smoke if it gets on a hot engine, especially on any part of the exhaust system. Barring anything else wrong with the engine such as a coolant leak, and the engine running OK otherwise, I would say that the smoke is from power steering fluid dripping or getting blown on the exhaust by the fan.

Upper streering column loose

Hi Jim,
You don't have to replace the whole column. I just had this fixed by my mechanic for 80 bucks, as I watched. There are actually 3 screws to tighten even though the instructions say 4. Tighten the 2 you can get to, but don't take them back out to put Locktite on them! My mechanic says you will NEVER get them back in again! And I believe him. But if you want to do it yourself, here is a great help. Good luck
