Rack and pinion? have play in wheel no sign of leaks new power steering pump installed

Hi Gunny, If your vehicle is fitted with rack and pinion steering also check the rack ends for play. The rack ends are the rods which the tie rod ends screw onto. The other end fits onto the rack of the rack and pinion. To work on those you will need to remove the rubber boots and loosen the locking washer, they can then be loosened with a wrench. If they are worn the play will be evident in the steering. When replacing them also replace the rubber boots. If the boots are worn and road grime and dust enters, you will see leakage from the rack and pinion in the near future. I always thought the Dakota was fitted with a steering box? Regards John

Steering is realy touchy need to slow it down on dodge dakota 1997 rack pinion was wondering how to adjust it or if can it acts like it is getting to much pressure to the rack

This could be a couple of things, most like none of them to do with the steering gear itself. If you are used to older types of steering systems that use connecting rods/idler arms/pitman arms, you will need to adjust to the faster response of a rack and pinion steering system. If the problem is that the vehicle seems to "jump" when you give the least bit of pressure to the steering wheel, it could be one of a few things. Tire pressure or belt separation can cause handing issues. Improper alignment, even if the vehicle seems to have no issues with left-or-right pull, can cause erratic steering performance and can amplify issues with hydroplaning in wet conditions. If you have had steering parts replaced, or changed and/or rotated tires recently, I would check those areas first. Lastly, I would ensure that you are using the correct power steering fluid in your rack. Many people use DEXRON ATF, but that is not the recommended fluid for the Dakota rack.

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.
