Engine oil seal where power steering shaft attaches
 
I have a 97 Dodge Cummins 3500 First off I wanna be clear that I am correct... where the power steering pump mounts to the engine... does the engine oil lubricate power steering shaft? I have a huge oil leak coming from where the 2 connect and also was wondering if anyone has already done this and how hard it was. Any help is appreciated!

Only if you have a bad leak! Engine oil has nothing to do with the power steering.

I am also a TDR member ( Turbo Diesel Register ) this is what you need. I have used them before simple instructions with a dvd to and spare parts too. ( www.fixinrams.com )

I had this same problem in my 98 and the steering pump housing was cracked. Yes it is engine oil leaking out of there. I opted for a used part from a wrecker but you can get a new part and they aren't cheap. Also it isn't super easy to replace as it is in a tight spit but can be done
