Q: Rack steering leaking

asked by on

The rack steering is leaking.

Usually, the steering rack leaks from the end seals. Unfortunately, the only way to remedy this is to replace the power steering rack. I suggest you call a trained professional, such as one from YourMechanic, to tackle this job for you.
