SOURCE: replace rack/pinion

The book calls for about 5 hours labor with a lift, air tools, and experience. It's a tough job. Here are a few tips, Take the lines loose from the rack; not the pump. With the tires off, Remove the nuts from the outer tie rods.Run the nuts back on the tie rods stud and hit the steering knuckle where the tie rod's stud goes through.This will free the stud. Remove the steering shaft from the rack.(take the bolt all the way out.Remove rack mounting bolts. Twist,pull ****,and fight the rack out the side of the car with the most room. The new rack will have inner tie rods already installed. Make sure the new rack is centered.(Turn left then right count the turns then center same # of turns from left to right). Count the threads or measure from the outer tie rod's jam nut to the last thread on the inner tie rod.(you can leave the jam nut in place and take the outer tie rod off and measure from the jam nut to the end of the rod.)Install the outer tie rods. Replace rack in car. hook up steering shaft.Bolt up rack. Hook up lines. Add fluid and work rack back and forth to bleed air. recheck fluid. Have it aligned. (or just take it to a shop.This job is going to be a nightmare!!!)

SOURCE: Rear Main Seal leak on 1996 toyota camry, 6 cyl sedan automomatic

Rear main crank seals are very difficult and time consuming to replace. The seal doesn't cost that much - it is the labor/tiime it takes because --- you've got to take the whole car apart --- that is both
front CV joints have to come out -- then the tranny has to come out - I have a 1996 Camry and it has an irritating rear main seal at 147,000 miles and I have not had it fixed because the shops tell me it will cost around $650 to $800 for them to do it --- $1200 is pretty excessive for that job!

Your power rack and steering is not so hard -- most shops in this area would charge $650 max for that job including the price of the new rack and pinion. Pretty easy job -- half the cost is labor - the other is for parts.

Any more questions --- reply to [email protected]

SOURCE: rack and pinion leak

It needs replaced a rebuilt unit cost $350.00 and you need the tools to remove the tie rod ends and you have to unhook the steering wheel, if you have a hoist it's not to bad but a do it yourselfer it's a pretty big job, the fluid is that color because it's sucking air into the fluid because of the leak and the shaking is caused by one side not holding hydrolic pressure because of the leak and wore out inner tierod ends. If you do do it you need a whole lot more information and much more instructions to do it, afterwords it will have to be alingned, having done it before and having the proper air tools I can do one in three hours. You might take a week but it would be a learning experince.

Any time you work on front end all parts and connecting ends must be tight to (hold) an alignment.you can by your own parts.but most shop won't warranty your parts.so shop for prices,and inform the shop that you will have your own parts..a tight and properly aligned front end will be safer and better gas mileage ,and tire wear,,!and in the end save your life...

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 have a 96 intrepid with a quarter revolution to the right of play before i can make a right turn.i believe the steering coupler is out.can this be repaired effectively, or should the rack and pinion be...


hi you should replace the whole rack and pinion, as if any other part has damage, this will end up damaging the new parts and you will be back to stage one, i do not think it would be cost affective as well as the parts will possibly cost just as much as a new rack, also you would have labour charges to..hope this helps

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

Replacing power steering hose and rack and pinion steering


when it comes to the power steering hose I would say just do it yourself. As for the rack and pinion it will probably cost you quite a few hours of labor. anywhere from 5-9. Its up to you!

Stering problem/ turning left


That would be for an entire rebuilt steering rack assembly, and that is high on the price, no one rebuilds these steering racks, to many problems. I show the Rack cost about $250.00, then 3 hours of labor, labor here is $120.00 pere hour, so the cost with fluids and parts should run about $600.00 + or - a $100.00 or so. Is this new part gold plated?
