They vary from vehicle to vehicle..and a tuff job to replace..they are located usually behind the motor and transaxle on front wheel drives are about the witdth of your vehicle from nearly tire to tire they have hydraulic ends that connect to the cars wheels via tie rods IT IS THE STEERING SYSTEM BASICLY..best way to check is call your local parts store and see if they have them or can order it..then go to that store and ask them to show you it if they have one..if not ask them to show you on their computer screen. You can match it on there..good luck

Power steering hose keeps breaking, even when replaced by high pressure hoses. Replacing rack and pinion does not help either.


A bad seal in the rack and pinion would have caused low pressure from fluid by-passing the seal. This also would have caused noticeably increased effort to steer the vehicle. Excessively high pressure would indicate an issue between the power steering pump and the rack, and since the hoses have been replaced I would focus on the pump. PS, find a real mechanic, not a parts changer.

Power steering


You may have to be under the car to trace the line. It will run from the PS pump down behind the engine to where it connects to the rack and pinion steering gear. The rack and pinion is on a subframe piece below and behind the engine. The 2 PS lines connect on the driver's side of the rack and pinion, if like nearly all GM cars.

The pressure line can be disconnected from the pump (suction out the fluid first or it will leak all over), up at top, and then disconnect it at the rack and pinion. If this fitting on the rack is hard to reach, you may need a crows foot wrench to loosen it and remove-I'm not sure about aleros. After disconnecting it top and bottom, check for any brackets that hold the two lines together, and for a bracket that may hold the lines secure on the backside of the engine.

Power steering fluid is leaking - on which side of the car is the rack and pinion when sitting in the drivers seat.


Hi, Aillathu,
The rack and pinion unit fits across from left to right....It is fitted onto the cross member....The pinion is fitted into the housing at almost right angles to the rack....The rack and pinion is a very positive steeling method, giving excellent response and usually good road feel....The unit consists of the rack which is fitted into the housing and joins the left and right wheels....and the pinion at more or less right angles to the rack...A leakage usually indicates worn oil seals which become damaged when a protective boots is broken....(The protective covers fitting onto the end of the rack housing)....The pinion is the part which attaches to the Steering column and the steering wheel....
If you're intending to do this job yourself, remember to pin punch 'match marks' onto the steering wheel and the top of the column before removing the nut. Next disconnect the steering fluid lines and drain the fluid into a container....(Don't forget to use goggles)
Jack the vehicle up and remove the front wheels....Turn the steering so that the tie rod ends can be loosened and removed from the housings (this will require a taper loosening tool)....removing them can also be achieved with a large hammer, but this method is not recommended!....Set the steering at straight ahead....Remove the joint attaching the pinion to the steering column....Once removed loosen the saddles holding the assembly onto the cross member and remove from the vehicle. Replacement of the seals is not as easy as removing the unit from the car, as the job requires special adjustments made to the unit and a very clean working area. Before you do this job please make sure that the leakage is from the rack and pinion and not on one of the hoses....

IF RACK GOES OUT YOU HAVE EXCESSIVE PLAY IN THE STEERING DUE TO WORN RACK..OR POOR RETURN OF STEERING WHEEL TO THE CENTER.BEFORE BUYING A NEW RACK PINION.CHECK RACK MOUNTING BOLTS FOR LOOSENESS.CHECK RACK PINION MOUNTING GROMMET.ALSO CHECK FOR LOOSE WORN TIE ROD ENDS.IF WORN THEY WILL CAUSE PLAY IN STEERING WHEEL.

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
