steering rack leak
1 Attachment(s)
I just recently had my power steering pump replaced its been going for like a year and a half now it was to the point that with full fluid it would not budge so i had it replaced three weeks ago, now to my surprise a nice new leak on a new concrete driveway, i crawled under the truck and on the bottom of the steering rack it seems to be leaking, i attached a picture i hoped it worked cuz i pointed out where exactly it was leaking and i wanted to know if this can be tightened and if it had a seal can it be replaced, i go to the mechanic tomorrow morning for inspection and oil change and don't want him to run some line of BS on how i need to replace the whole thing if i can figure out if i can tighten it or replace the seal myself thanks i hope the attachment worked.:att:

You could have a look at the hoses going into the rack and pinion steering, the top hose has a factory clamp that has a habit of coming loose, grab the hose and see if you can move it. Put a regular hose clamp on there and that will fix that leak (my steering looked like it was leaking from the same place as yours but it was the top hose with the loose clamp that was dripping fluid all over the rack) Hope this helps
