No definitely no!, we lower the rear part of the cradle support to remove the pinion.

Power steering leak


Not if it's the rack and pinion steering gear that is leaking. If those seals are gone, you would need a new or reconditioned rack and pinion. This is not a job for the average do it yourselfer, it is pretty involved.
To check the rack for leaks, you have to get under the car. Don't trust a jack to hold it up-use blocks or jackstands. Behind the engine on a cross mount, the rack will have tie rods coming out each end to the wheels. Peel back the rubber protective boots on the rack gear where the tie rods exit. If the rack is leaking, fluid will be evident under the boots, or maybe on only one end, but if that is your leak, you will need to replace it.

Check the power steering fluid level and add fluid if it is low. Check to see if the steering rack is leaking. You can check it by removing the tie rod boots to see if fluid comes out. Make sure the belt is tight. If the pump works and no leaks, you may need steering rack replacement.

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.

Power steering loosing oil


year, make, model, and engine size?

You will likely not have the tools necessary to replace the seals that are leaking. If the seals are leaking than there are likely other components in the rack that are also worn out.

Rack and pinions are typically sold as remanufactured assemblies which typically offer the easiest repair option.

The steering is hard to move and the steering warning light is on. Please let me know what to do I need to urgently resolve it.


The servo unit on the steering has failed . Look inside the engine bay for oil leaks - if none are present then the entire steering rack will have to be replaced - the internal seals have failed.

I refill and it leaks out even if engine off. have to refill by 25 miles. cant find the leak but puddles are under car around pump area. cant figure if it is hose or pump. looked at picture of powercraft...


Well don't know exactly what vehicle you are working on but it is very possible that if is a car then the inner seals on the rack-n-pinion are worn out causing the fluid to leak out. If it is the rack seals leaking then you will need to replace the rack-n-pinion. Good luck.

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!

1999 dakota rack and pinion leak


You can change the seal, but the new one will most likely leak soon after, the seal starts leaking because of problems in the rack from wear, I would try it but if it leaks soon after replace the rack, they are cheap rebuilt.
