How many hours to replace a power steering pump?


Since he replace the reservoir, most likely it is the pump. These pumps have fiberboard vanes, so don't worry about replacing the rack. I don't know about your car, but if the pump is on top, labor is about an hour. If it on bottom, look at about 3 hours. I have done some that have taken every bit of 3 hours, all the parts that have to removed or dropping the frame. Don't get me wrong, I have worked on plenty of Volvo,s. But I work on everything and just do the job.

Leaking rack and pinion steering unit in a 2002 infiniti i35. How do you repair and what is the estimated cost?


The only way to repair a leaking rack and pinion is to replace the rack and pinion with either a new or remanufactured unit. (Nobody sells rebuild kits for them like they used to several years ago.)
AutoZone lists a remanufactured unit for $452.99 plus a $115.00 core charge. Click HERE for more information.

If you are having a professional shop do the job, they will most likely charge you the standard labor time multiplied by the shop labor rate + alignment charges. This can vary considerably depending on the area where you live and what shop you take it to. The standard labor time to perform rack and pinion replacement on your vehicle is 5.5 hours. (Does not include alignment)

The labor rate in my area averages about $95 per hour. A wheel alignment can be done for about $70.
The total job would run $1045.99 + taxes and charges for shop supplies, which would put it right in the neighborhood of $1100.00.

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!

Rack and pinion steering my rack and pinion steering just went on my 1999 windstar. Does anyone know how much this will cost to replace?


On a caravan new rack and pinion cost around 250 plus labor. Probally hour or two labor so at least another 100 there. So that should be a rough estimate for you.

Power sterring fluid is leaking.how much will it cost to fix?


when power steering is leaking. you need a new rack and pinion. you need to find out if you need it rough or smooth and prices vary pedending on make and model and the labor is extra. rack and pinions can run from $437 and up and that does not include labor. call a auto parts and ask them to look up a rack and pinion for the make and model of your car then you can call and see how much labor will cost but alot of places want you to buy the part from them which can be more expensive

Power steering


I still have one of these I HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT LANDCRUISER ,SINCE 1980 SEVERAL 47S AND 75 S AS WELL as 2 ---60 series and I have never had to even think about rack and pinion etc BECAUSE DONT HAVE THEM ,so you can forget about those sort of answers as the people are guessing,rack and pinion steering didnt come into landcruisers until the 100 series. So that makes it simple for you ,the steering pump is useually the problem , in australia where I live they were ,the last tme I priced one, about $ 270 exchange. any one can unbolt ,and bolt a new one on.J ust be sure tocompletely drain and renew the fluid .
