I would recommend having a knowledgable technician thoroughly inspect the vehicle to determine exactly where the leaks are coming from. A leaking pan gasket would require removal of the oil pan. A leaking rack and pinion will most likely require replacement of the entire rack, since most rack and pinion leaks usually happen internally.
