Power Steering Fluid Leaking On Rack


Recommended Posts

My 1992 lexus is having major problems. Have been dealing with exhaust problems. Now there is a leak (bad) of power steering fluid dripping on my steering rack, the rubber cushion on the rack is covered with fluid. Does this indicate I need a new steering rack as one mechanic indicated or could it be something from the power steering pump which was replaced at 74,000; the car now has 135,00 on it.

I had this happen on my 96 a few months back. There is an excellent write-up on how to replace the PS pump yourself under (that guy is great). I chickened out and had it done by a mechanic I trust. He did not replace the steering rack but it may be that I caught it much earlier than you. Seems unlikely to me that fluid on the rack would cause any problem - fluid on the car paint I can understand but not the mechanical parts.
