Tight the pipe holder, if you can make it a little small and then push the pipe into the rack.

If you can not, probably you have to use other way to tight the pipe

Power steering gone


you may need to get the car on some ramps. the power steering is prone to fail near to the steering rack. check there is oil in if not then this is were it will be coming out. the joint near to the steering rack there are two pipes you will need to change one of them think it is the left one as you look up. but some times you can get away with a jubelea on it and tighten it. as the seal on the pipe comes away worst case the pipe needs tom be changed. then top up steering fluid. when finnished.

There is a leak of power steering fluid from the boot on the steering rack, believe the boot has a rubber clip that the pipe feeds into thats now missing, can it be repaired without replacing the whole...


Heres the problem the boot is to protect the shaft from dirt, the pipe is to bleed air out, if theres power steering fluid leaking out then the steering rack is bad and needs replacing. the seal on the side of the leak is bad and replacing is the result, by replacing the boot or reclamping it is only going to hold all the leaking oil inside and you will see you will be added power steering fluid. good luck. hope this is helpful.

My power steering is leaking on my 2000 jeep Cherokee also, when turning I hear a poping noise and the wheel doesn't turn all the way.


Could be a worn steering rack. You have to actually get involved and look it over, or take it to someone, and pay to have it repaired.
When you don't ever change power steering and trans fluids, every 3 years or so,you have some very expensive and in most cases,preventable repairs.

Power steering fluid leaking - looking for schematic of steering assembly


most likely cause is a union where the flexible pipe joins the metal pipe ,on the power feed side of the system so follow pipe from pump to the steering rack and the high pressure pipe where it goes from metal to rubber is where you will find the leak

There is a leakage of oil in my power steering system and i want to find the problem . what do you recomend me to do ?


check the most obvious places first, like the power steering bottle for the fluid, the pipes coming from the bottle , follow the pipes back as far as you can checing for any oil or leaks. they sometimes leak from the steering rack although this may be difficult to tell unless you can get under the car.

The steering rack ahs small seals and sometimes these perish, they are very cheap.

Hope this helps

Power steering rack leaking


If it's coming from the rack, check the rubber boots from the rack to the inner tie rods, and if they are soaked with fluid, you will need a new rack, or keep adding fluid to the pump as needed.
Hope this helps!
