How to Repair a Rack and Pinion Leak

#driveyourlife

Rack and Pinion LeakRack and Pinion leaks can be frustrating to deal with and hard to understand why mechanics charge so much money to fix them.  Rack and Pinion steering systems are often used in sports cars and other vehicles that are low to the ground or have limited space in the front of the vehicle.  Rack and pinion steering systems are used more in these situations because they are relatively compact systems and do not require elaborate linkages like the steering gear systems found in most trucks.

What is a rack and pinion?

The rack and pinion is used to transfer the rotary motion of turning your steering wheel into the linear motion your tie rod uses to push your steering knuckle in and out which causes your front wheels to turn your vehicle.  It accomplishes this task and gets its name by using both a rack and a pinion.  The pinion is simply a small gear at the end of your steering column that rotates as you turn your steering wheel.  The rack is a flat gear the pinion rests on, and as the pinion rotates its teeth mesh with the teeth on the rack which are pushed left or right creating the linear motion needed to turn the front wheels of your vehicle.  To get a better idea of what a rack and pinion looks like, check out this article on how rack and pinions work.

What happens when rack and pinion goes out?

It is important to be aware of what happens when rack and pinion goes out. When a pinion is on the verge of failure it can be very difficult to steer, however, if a rack or pinion goes out you will lose complete control of steering. It is extremely dangerous for a rack or pinion to go out because the power steering system in your vehicle uses the power steering pump to pressurize power steering fluid and send it down to your rack and pinion.  This high-pressure fluid is used to help the steering rack move as you turn the steering wheel so it isn’t so difficult for you to turn your wheels when your vehicle is moving slowly or stopped. Like any high-pressure hydraulic system, the power steering system used with your rack and pinion can be prone to leaks.

How does a rack and pinion leak happen?

It is possible that one of the hoses or lines in your power steering system can begin to leak either at the connection or due to the flexible rubber section cracking.  However, it is more likely that your power steering system will develop a leak at one of the seals on your rack and pinion.  There is a seal where your steering column enters the rack and pinion assembly, then a seal where each tie rod attaches.  Each of these seals have to keep high-pressure power steering fluid contained while allowing the steering column to rotate and the tie rods to move as well.  Over time these seals can dry out, shrink, crack or become unseated causing a leak.

How to find a rack and pinion leak

To find your rack and pinion leak you can check these three seals relatively easily.  The only difficult part is fitting underneath your vehicle but if you have ramps or a jack and jack stands that can be easily accomplished, just make sure your vehicle is secure before you crawl under!  The rack and pinion should be one of the lowest components on your vehicle and will likely be just under your engine’s oil pan.

Why are rack and pinion leaks expensive to fix?

Rack and Pinion LeakThe reason rack and pinion leaks are so expensive to fix is that the seals are often not serviceable, even by a mechanic.  Most rack and pinion leaks will require the replacement of the entire rack and pinion assembly even if most of it works just fine.  The good news is you do have another alternative to an expensive replacement.  You can simply and quickly restore the seals in your rack and pinion without ever removing it.  Adding BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak to your power steering reservoir today will start to seal your power steering leaks immediately and is guaranteed to permanently seal your rack and pinion leak within a few days of driving.  BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak is specially formulated to revitalize and restore the seals in your power steering rack returning them to their original size and function to seal your leak.  BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak will not harm or clog your rack and pinion and is safe to remain in your system until your next scheduled power steering flush.

            Shay-

            The BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak is intended for leaks that are speeping or lightly dripping from the system. If you are losing fluid too quickly, unfortunately, the leak you have may be a little larger than what the product is intended for.

          • BlueDevil Pro on August 25, 2021 at 8:21 am

            Elizabeth-

            Is the leak coming from the rack and pinion seal or elsewhere? It’s possible one of the hoses or pressure lines has cracked and is leaking. A loose hose connection is also a possibility. It would be best to pinpoint the location of the leak and replace the affected component.

            Thank you!

You will start by adding 1/3 of the bottle into your power steering reservoir, and should expect to see results after approximately 100-200 miles of driving. Repeat the procedure if the leak persists after that.

        My 1995 Volvo 850 GLT has a leak on the drivers side. It only drips, but I just had the rack and pinion replaced so I’m sure it’s still good, but it takes automatic transmission fluid for the power steering so this wouldn’t do any harm?

        • BlueDevil Pro on April 1, 2019 at 9:41 am

          Donald-

          Yes, the BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak is safe and compatible to use on your Volvo 850. The product works by revitalizing and reconditioning rubber seals/gaskets. If the leak is coming from the rack and pinion seal you just had replaced, being that the rubber is new, the product would not be able to seal a leak on a rubber that is already revitalized.

          Thank you!

          You may want to check with the manufacturer, as it appears the rack in pinion seal ranges from 2001-2006.

    Steering hard to turn sometimes it gets stuck when pulling into a parking space. Does the power steering pump have to be changed. No leakes

    • BlueDevil Pro on September 17, 2015 at 3:45 pm

      Ron-

      The first thing you should check is whether or not your power steering fluid is too low or too high. Many times this will cause the power steering to act up and not function as smoothly as it should. If everything appears to be up to level then it would be wise to have the power steering pump checked out and potentially replaced.

      Thank you!

        How do I know if this product will work I tried it nothing I was wondering do u guys have a chart like if the fluid leeks out in 15min would it be affective or if I have 3 hrs be for its empty would it work or if the leeks takes 24hr to empty is the product effective ish.

        • BlueDevil Pro on September 20, 2017 at 9:15 am

          Ismaeel-

          The BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak is intended for leaks that are seeping or lightly dripping from the system. Typically, you would expect to see results after about 100-200 miles of driving. If you are losing your full capacity before you get to that 100-200 miles, then the leak you have may be a little too extreme for the product to be effective. A hard part repair may be your best option in that case.

          Thank you!

        • BlueDevil Pro on March 30, 2022 at 8:38 am

          Roger-

          Thank you for asking about your Kia Rio. Are you experiencing a whining or grinding noise? You can try checking the fluid level to ensure the system is not low on fluid. If the fluid appears full and you are not experiencing any other symptoms, you may want to have the issue inspected by an ASE certified mechanic.

          Thank you!

  3. Chris on September 19, 2015 at 2:47 pm

    Will it fix the leak in the actual rubber hose or at the seals only?

    • BlueDevil Pro on September 21, 2015 at 2:52 pm

      Chris-

      Unfortunately, the BlueDevil is not designed to stop leaks coming from the hose. The product is meant to stop fluid loss from around the seals/gaskets.

      Thank you!

    • Timothy Peterson on June 28, 2019 at 12:26 pm

      Geez man… Replacing the rack is one thing. And I can relate to not wanting to do such a job. But if your hoses are broken and leaking. Then just replace em. That’s probably the easiest part of the system to replace.

  4. Carol on September 22, 2015 at 9:39 am

    I have a new steering pump and a new hose but I have a leak at the rack and pinion that appears to release all the fluid when the car is turn off will blue devil help this situation? The leak is at the front passenger side.

    • BlueDevil Pro on September 22, 2015 at 10:55 am

      Carol-

      Based on your description, we would not recommend using the BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak. The product is intended for leaks that are seeping or dripping out. Unfortunately, it sounds like you are losing fluid a little too quickly for the product.

        My tech is replacing a short block in a 2010 Honda Accord Crosstour and has dropped the engine cradle. His/her inspection determined steering fluid in the flex-boot. Here is the $2,137 question. Should the rack and pinion system be replaced, even though I have never seen a drop of fluid on my garage floor?

        • BlueDevil Pro on June 26, 2017 at 3:13 pm

          Emmett-

          Thank you for asking about your Honda Accord. It is possible to lose power steering fluid, without seeing it drip to the ground. In this case, it sounds like it went to your flex-boot, which is why you never saw it leaking to the ground. We recommend using the BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak (http://store.gobdp.com/power-steering-stop-leak-00232/).

          No, you do not have to empty the power steering reservoir to add BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak. You will simply add 1/3 of the bottle of BlueDevil to your existing power steering fluid. If the fluid is low you may need to add more power steering fluid, make sure you do not overfill the system.

  7. Catherine on October 11, 2015 at 1:03 pm

    I took my car to get an alignment and they informed me that the reason my steering wheel is crooked when I drive straight is that my rack and pinion needs to be replaced. Something to do with loosing pressure and that we must have hit a pothole pretty hard while the wheel was turned. I don’t understand.

    • BlueDevil Pro on October 23, 2015 at 10:12 am

      Catherine,

      Thanks for your question about your alignment. Hitting big pot holes can alter your alignment, but usually that happens due to bent tie rods rather than a leaking rack and pinion. If you bent your tie rod severely it could be rubbing excessively on the rack and pinion seal causing a leak, but that would be two separate problems. We would recommend possibly having a second opinion especially if you aren’t noticing a large leak from your power steering system.

      Thanks again for your question!

    My daily driver can only turn left going forward and right in reverse. I think the hydraulic steering is leaking. Will Blue Devil plug the leak in my gearbox? I drive a 1986 Cat D11.

    • BlueDevil Pro on October 24, 2015 at 9:55 am

      Andy,

      Thanks for your question about your D11. I believe your machine uses a hydraulic system to control steering so we would actually recommend using BlueDevil Hydraulic Stop Leak (available here: http://store.gobdp.com/hydraulic-stop-leak-00238-00239/) to stop the leak, then top off the fluid so you can get back to steering both directions.

    I replaced the power steering pump on my 99 Grand Am not too long ago. However, my rack and pinion mildly leaks power steering fluid on the ground. Since I have a subframe I can’t tell if the leak is coming from the lines or the seals. Pretty sure it’s the seals though. Will this product permanently* fix this problem? Or will I have to go and replace my whole rack and pinion?

    • BlueDevil Pro on October 26, 2015 at 3:53 pm

      Based on your description, we would recommend using the BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak. You should start to see results after about 100-200 miles of driving. Once the product seals, it would create a permanent seal.

    I replaced my rack and pinion on my 2004 Silverado about 2 – 1/2 years ago and I’m already being told it is leaking and needs to be replaced again. Can I use this instead ?

    • BlueDevil Pro on November 6, 2015 at 11:31 am

      Brian,

      Thanks for your question about your Silverado. Rack and pinions should last longer than 2.5 years so it may be worth taking your truck back to whoever installed it and seeing if they will consider replacing it under a warranty, or if the made a mistake during the original installation. If your rack is leaking from one of the seals where the steering shaft enters or where the tie rods attach, then yes BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak (available here: http://store.gobdp.com/power-steering-stop-leak-00232/) will seal your leak.

    I got a new power steering pump in my Pontiac Grand Prix a couple weeks ago and found out that I have a leak in the rack and pinion. I think its a slow leak, and the mechanic told me to just tap it with fluid when it gets low, so I am assuming the rack and pinion system isn’t cracked, just a seal possibly. What are your thoughts?

      BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak does work for the type of leak you are experiencing. However, if you are losing the entire contents of your power steering reservoir within a day it may be too large of a leak for what BlueDevil is intended to fix. If the fluid has leaked out over a period of time then you should have no problem sealing it using BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak. Add 1/3 of the bottle to treat your vehicle; you should start seeing results after about 100 miles of driving.

      Thank you!

      Peggy-

      Thank you for asking about your Pontiac Grand Prix. Based on your description, you may be losing fluid a little too quickly in order to get the benefit of using the product. Typically, you would expect to see results after about 100-200 miles of driving. If you are losing all of your fluid, you would also be losing the product, and wouldn’t be able to keep it in the system long enough for it to be able to seal.

      Thank you!

    Greetings,

    I recently purchased a 2007 Toyota 4Runner 4wd that had unbalanced and uneven wear on the tires. Additionally, I was feeling vibrations coming back through around 50-55 mph but clearing up after that. After taking it to the dealership for quotes and a once over they advised unbalanced tires were causing my issues but that wasn’t the root of the problem. They advised replacement of a leaky rack and pinion as the car wouldn’t be able to hold a true alignment without it and vibrations and premature tire wear would be an issue moving forward. I took the vehicle elsewhere and replaced the tires and currently looking into options for the rack and pinion. The steering hydraulic fluid does not seem to be leaking at a rapid rate at all by looking at the levels. Would this product work for this issue? Are there risks in driving this vehicle with a leaky rack and pinion? Thank you

    – Dan

    • BlueDevil Pro on March 11, 2016 at 10:09 am

      Dan,

      Thanks for your question about your 4Runner. The main risk to driving with a leaky rack and pinion is that if you suddenly ran out of power steering fluid it would quickly become extremely difficult to steer your vehicle. If you regularly check your fluid level and don’t see large puddles of fluid under your vehicle then the leak rate is probably slow enough that the chances of that happening are low. We would recommend using BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak (available here: http://store.gobdp.com/power-steering-stop-leak-00232/) to seal the leak so you don’t have to worry.

      Thanks again for your question!

    Hi !! I took in my 2000 Dodge caravan for a inspection a couple of weeks ago. The mechanic told me the steering rack is leaking. The thing I don’t see anything leaking from the ground or under the hood. Would this product work for my van?

      Thank you for asking about your Dodge Caravan. Based on your description, it doesn’t sound like you are losing fluid too quickly, so you would definitely be a good candidate for the BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak. You should expect to see results after about 100-200 miles of driving.

  23. Wesley Gibson on March 5, 2016 at 9:48 pm

    I have a Hyundai Matrix 2004. I had a problem when moving from a stationary position. I checked the Fluid reservoir and found it to be empty. After filling the reservoir I was able to get where I was going but on making a left up my drive way the steering became stiff. I again checked the reservoir and found that it was almost empty. My mechanic came by to check it and as a result the hoses were changed and the reservoir flushed. The long and short is that it continue to leak on the right hand side(the vehicle is RH). What can the problem be?

    • BlueDevil Pro on March 19, 2016 at 1:01 pm

      Wesley,

      Thanks for your question about your 2004 Hyundai Matrix. It sounds like you’ve got a pretty sizeable leak in your power steering system. If you recently changed all the hoses then it is possible you have a leak from either the steering rack input shaft or from where the tie rods connect. You can add BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak (available here: http://store.gobdp.com/power-steering-stop-leak-00232/) to your fluid reservoir to try and seal the leak and keep your steering from getting stiff again.

      Thanks again for your question!

    Hi I have a 2006 Gmc sierra and was told i have a leak in my rack and pinion but i havent noticed puddles maybe a small spot in the driveway. Will it hurt anything if i try your product first ? if the leak is too bad can it damage anything?

    • BlueDevil Pro on March 9, 2016 at 10:54 am

      Chris-

      BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak is 100% safe to use and will not harm engines in any way. If the leak is too severe then there is a chance it may not work but that is the absolute worst thing that can happen; the product also carries a money back guarantee.

      We recommend adding 1/3 of the bottle to your power steering reservoir. Once added you can expect to start seeing results after about 100 miles of driving.

  25. Sandee on March 8, 2016 at 8:40 pm

    Was told my 2004 Camry steering high pressure hose was leaking and needed replaced $600. Then needed pump. $328. Then said they got a bad pump and went to replace then said bad rack/onion was blowing out pumps $650. Owner is paying for rack pinion.
    Your opinion ? I am in it almost $1000

    • BlueDevil Pro on March 19, 2016 at 1:10 pm

      Sandee,

      The scenario you described is possible. The leaking high pressure hose could have allowed contamination to enter into your power steering system which would cause a clog in your power steering rack. That clog could create a whining noise or difficulty steering. This would also create an overly high pressure in the system which could quickly damage your power steering pump. Once you’ve got a new power steering rack, everything in your system should be new and working as it should.

      Thanks again for your question!

      Based on your description, unfortunately, you may be losing fluid a little too quickly for the product. You would typically start to see results after about 100-200 miles of driving with the product. It may be that you would lose the product along with your fluid before it ever got a chance to seal.

I was quoted over 1300 to take the whole thing apart and replace it. I have checked the fluid the last 5 days and it’s not draining quickly at all. But can still see the oil build up on the rubeer cover. Would this produce help my situation. And if the power steering fluid is full should I empty some before I pour this in?

      We recommend adding 1/3 of a bottle of BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak to your power steering reservoir. Due to the fact that you are only adding 2 – 3 ounces of BlueDevil, you should not have to drain the system down at all. Once the product is added you can expect to start seeing results after about 100 miles of driving.

  32. JohnR on May 16, 2016 at 5:19 pm

    Hi, I have 2005 Nissan Altima – we have leaks under the car and can’t seem to get a straight answer as to any are coming from the rack and pinion. 2 mechanics have said that there is a leak coming from the rack and pinion and it needs to be replaced – 1 mechanic said it is not leaking and the leaks are coming from the power steering pump and the axle seal. When the car was degreased the mechanic who looked at it did *not* mention any leaks from the rack and pinion – only the power steering pump and a little in the oil pan. But I don’t know if perhaps not enough time/driving had passed since degreasing it (it had been a week) or if the other leaks can make it difficult to pinpoint exactly where the leaks are coming from.

    How can I tell for sure whether there is indeed a leak from the rack and pinion visually? Also, what symptoms might I be experiencing while driving the car? (not sure if it’s relevant but the car is not difficult to steer in any way).

    And also, could your product possibly help me?

    Thanks for your help.

    • BD Auto Pro on May 25, 2016 at 5:30 pm

      John,

      Thanks for your question about your Nissan Altima. When you’re driving the air moving under your car will blow any drips or leaks backwards so you should look for the highest and most forward component that shows evidence of a leak and that is most likely your trouble component. The best way to check for a power steering fluid leak is to simply keep an eye on your power steer fluid level in the reservoir. If you notice the level lowering over a few days or weeks then you do have a power steering fluid leak and can use BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak (available here: http://store.gobdp.com/power-steering-stop-leak-00232/) to seal the leak.

      If you don’t notice your power steering fluid level dropping then your leak is either from your engine or your transmission and those fluids are different enough you should be able to tell which is leaking.

      Thanks again for your question!
      -BD Auto Pro

  33. JohnR on May 16, 2016 at 5:24 pm

    I forgot to mention that the mechanic who degreased the car – and who did not point out any leaks in the rack and the pinion – had put UV dye in the power steering.

    (which makes me wonder whey they still quoted price for replacing the rack and pinion. Really does not make any sense and I just don’t know how to get a straight answer. This is a car with over 200K miles and I do not want to replace or spend $ on anything I don’t have to.)

    • BD Auto Pro on June 8, 2016 at 6:55 pm

      Brandon,

      Thanks for your question about your pitman seal. When you’re installing seals there are a few things you can do to ensure the seal doesn’t get damaged during installation. First, once you’ve removed the old seal you can clean the seal seating surface as well as the steering shaft where it will contact the seal. You can use brake cleaner and a scotch bright pad to clean and remove any burrs from these surfaces it will hep the new seal to last longer.

      Also, when installing the seal make sure to coat it inside and out with grease before you install it to make sure it slides in without any damage. If the shaft the seal goes over isn’t tapered you should cover the end and threads with electrical tape or a plastic bag to protect the inside of the seal.

      If you do all that and the seal still leaks, it could be that the shaft it’s sealing is damaged beyond repair and is causing the leaks you’re getting.

      Thanks again for your question!

    I just had my 2007 Hyundai Tucson in for a safety certificate in Ontario. They told me I had a level 2 leak in my rack and pinion. Fluid level is up to max and have never noticed any leaks on driveway, does this make sense to you or am I getting the shaft, my son took this car into another shop and they never mentioned anything about a leak. Would it be leaking and you don’t notice anything.

    • BD Auto Pro on December 19, 2016 at 6:44 pm

      Gord,

      Thanks for your question about your Hyundai Tucson. Getting a second opinion on leaks like this is always a good idea so it may be worth bring your car by another shop. If the leak is in the high pressure side of the system, it may only leak when the engine is running causing it to drip while you’re driving but not when you park. Also, if the leak is at the tie rod end of the rack it’s possible that it’s simply been filling the accordion cover with fluid in which case you also wouldn’t see the leak as a puddle on the ground.

      Thanks again for your question!

    Hi have a 2009 Mercedes ML320,I have an small leak on the rack & pinion assembly,the steering start to to get hard to turn,I`m live in BC Canada and I read about the bluedevil seal repair so I when to Napa store here but they don`t have this product in Canada.
    So they recommend a “Lucas” stop leak,I remove some of the oil from the reservoir and add this additive,for my surprise it work immediate but for only 5 days then my steering wheel getting hard again.
    So I did the same same again but this time it wont fix it,so now I wonder if I use the Bluedevil additive it possible my steering come back to normal again??
    I dont have a mayor leak,it is some drop in my drive way.
    Now my Question is what it can be,the Steering Pump or my Rack & Pinion??

      Enrique-

      Thank you for asking about your Mercedes ML320. As long as you are not losing power steering fluid too quickly, you would be a great candidate for the BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak (http://store.gobdp.com/power-steering-stop-leak-00232/). You should expect to see results after about 100-200 miles of driving.

      Thank you!

    I have a 2007 Pontiac G6, base model. A few months ago I noticed a leak, we found out it is a power steering leak that it was the pump. Today we replaced the pump but when we put the power steering fluid in we noticed it wasn’t staying full. We checked below the car to find a steady drip below the rack and pinion will this stop the leak?

  54. Aldo on March 2, 2017 at 11:59 am

    I purchased a 1988 Corvette in November of 2016 I had it checked out by a mechanic he stated that it looked like the rack had been leaking I have noticed no fluid on the garage floor. The car sat a lot and he said once I start to use it it will leak. My question is Bluedevel ok to use in a 1988 corvette and should I reduce the power steering fluid so that when I had 1/3 of the bottle it will not be overfilled? If there is no leak will Bluedevel harm the system?

    • BlueDevil Pro on March 2, 2017 at 2:36 pm

      Aldo-

      Thank you for asking about your Corvette. Based on your description, we recommend using the BlueDevil Power Steering Stop (http://store.gobdp.com/power-steering-stop-leak-00232/). The system should be drained to allow enough room to add the recommended amount of the product. The product does not harden or thicken in anyway, so it would not have any adverse affects on the system. You should expect to see results after about 100-200 miles of driving.

      Thank you!

    My 1998 Toyota sienna is leaking power steering fluid. It takes about three weeks for the reservoir to get almost empty . My mechanic, whom I trust,recommended rack and pinion replacement since he found a visible leak . but at close to $1000 that’s a lot for this old van. I asked about using some kind of stop leak product and he discouraged me from trying it since he said my power steering pump was great and the product might damage my pump. What keeps the stop leak from also affecting the pump?.

      Tamara-

      Thank you for asking about your Toyota Sienna. Based on your description, we recommend using the BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak (http://store.gobdp.com/power-steering-stop-leak-00232/). The product works by revitalizing and reconditioning the rubber seals/gaskets in the system, and will slightly expand them back to their original state. Also, the product would not have any affect on the power steering pump. You should expect to see results after about 100-200 miles of driving.

    i have a 2001 plymouth voyager.when the engine is started in cool weather the tires will not turn for a cpl minutes,then after the van warms up it works.i was told this could be a seal leaking in the rack and letting the cold fluid leak by.then after the fluid warms up the tires turn normal.i replaced the pump but still have this problem.would the blue devil fluid additive help this,or is it something else.i was told after the fluid warms up the rubber in the seal expands and steering is normal.

  57. Dawn on March 6, 2017 at 3:45 pm

    Hi. I have problems with my car: R/F strut bent, power steering rack leaking(right side boot), alignment leaking.
    I went to a dealer today and they told me it needs $1100. Well, my car was made in 2005 toyota camry, and I just used $4000 bought it. $1100+ is so much so I prefer to fix it by myself.
    I am searching how to fix it.
    Is that hard to fix?
    (Perform alignment steering wheel off center. put on alignment rack, found right front strut bent, and right side of power steering rack leaking.)

    If anyone could know and like to help me, just replied me.
    Thank you very much. XD

      The BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak (http://store.gobdp.com/power-steering-stop-leak-00232/) would be able to seal the leak you have described in your Toyota Camry, however, we do not manufacture a product intended to enhance alignment. You would need to take the vehicle to a shop to have the steering aligned properly.

    I have a 2005 Toyota Camry. One of the seals is leaking and he did show it to me while on the lift. He said I should replace the rack and pinion. I never saw any leaking on my driveway and I already know that my cover gasket has a small leak that needs to be fixed. If I use the Blue Devil Power Steering Stop Leak fluid, would it be okay to clean the oil off the area where the leak is so I can see if it stopped it well enough?

  61. Allison on April 26, 2017 at 11:44 am

    Hi,

    My 2003 Nissan Altima is having problems steering, and increased resistance while turning the wheel. Went to Midas to get it checked out – they told me it was the steering rack had a leak and that needed to be replaced. Went back and forth, asking if the whole unit needed to be replaced or if it was possible to just fix the leak. They said the whole thing needs to be replaced and it costs over $1,000 and takes 3-4 hours to do?! Is this accurate? They gave me a quote – $670 for steering rack and pinion. I’ve searched online for these parts for my 03 nissan, and I found them for under $300. Also, they didn’t mention any kind of Steering Stop Leak solution like Blue Devil.. the parts with labor come to over $1,000 – just feel like I’m getting ripped off, or can find a better solution for cheaper

  66. Ron on September 19, 2017 at 1:35 am

    Hello

    I tried the power steering fluid stop leak. The leak got worst…power steering resevoir was drained as the leak came down to ground under the rack and pinion driver side and passenger side. After a diagnose from an autoshop, it turned to be a failed power steering pump. I replaced the steering pump with a new one. The leak continues to drip slowly. This time when the wheel is turned to the left only. The leak is coming from the rack and pinion. If I use the power steering fluid stop leak again, will it work now that my steering pump is new?

    • BlueDevil Pro on September 19, 2017 at 11:06 am

      Ron-

      I believe we spoke to over the phone concerning your power steering fluid leak. Yes, being that the pump has been replaced, it would allow the product to circulate through the system better, and give it a better chance of revitalizing and reconditioning the rubbers in the system.

      Thank you!

  67. Jay on November 13, 2017 at 11:51 am

    A mechanic told me that our Kia had a tiny leak from the power steering rack. Said it’s so minor that it would NOT cause fluid loss (which it hasn’t moved a bit in 11 months). He warned that it was enough that it would fail a safety inspection. I am coming due soon for my plates expiring. I am wondering if I should add some stop leak or first see if another shop will pass it? It steers fine and again NO leaks. Thanks in advance for any help.

    • BlueDevil Pro on November 13, 2017 at 1:37 pm

      Jay-

      If you are not experiencing a leak, then it would not be necessary to add the BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak. However, you could add the product as a preventative maintenance to revitalize and recondition the rubber seals. The product does not harden or thicken in any way, so it would not have any adverse affects on the system.

    The place that changes my oil stated i needed a new assembly and I saw the leak but i have never had steering problems is that strange? Should you always have steering problems with a R&P seal leak? Also, i can just add this to my power steering reservoir without draining it correct?

    • BlueDevil Pro on March 21, 2018 at 10:17 am

      Sls-

      Depending on the size of the leak, you may not necessarily have steering issues with a rack and pinion leak, especially if it is a minor leak. Yes, you will be adding 1/3 of the BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak (2-3 oz.) into your power steering reservoir, and should expect to see results after approximately 100-200 miles of driving.

  72. Ash on July 13, 2018 at 7:14 pm

    Hi,
    2006 ML500
    Steering is pretty stiff. There’s no leak whatsoever! Steering pump sounds fine; I removed the v belt and turned the pulley on the pump; it turns smoothly and without any noise.
    However, as soon as the engine starts, there’s a constant whining noise that increases as engine warms up. At the start steering is fine without any stiffness; but the stiffness too increases as the engine warms up.
    During driving steering fine, but when the car is stopped and during parking is when the stiffness shows itself.
    Would this be a sign of a bad rack and pinion, even when there’s no leak?
    What would be the problem with the rack and pinion?
    Thanks,

    • BlueDevil Pro on July 16, 2018 at 11:35 am

    Hi I just got a new rack and pinion for my 2005 Chevy Impala yesterday and was told that it would not leak power steering fluid but when I drove out of the driveway this morning I noticed that there was small drops of power steering on the driveway..shouldn’t it have been fixed?

    • BlueDevil Pro on April 10, 2019 at 1:43 pm

      Eric-

      Thank you for asking about your Chevy Impala. If the leak was coming from the rack and pinion, replacing it should have eliminated the leak. You may still be experiencing a loss of fluid if the leak was coming from somewhere else in the power steering system, or the rack and pinion were not replaced properly. Being that it sounds like you’ve just had this work done, we recommend bringing the vehicle back to the shop for a diagnosis.

    Got a 2007 Honda CR-V we are readying for our daughter to drive to college. Power steering pump and pressure line hose replaced where leak was originally. Steering seems fine with one exception: noticeable vibration in steering while idle. If you turn the wheel from one side to another, it shudders/vibrates about a 1/4 – 1/2 turn either direction. Not sure what this might be.

    • BD Auto Pro on January 1, 2020 at 9:44 am

      Shawn,

      Thanks for your question about your 2006 Honda CR-V. Assuming you’ve properly burped the power steering system after replacing the pump and line(s) and you used Honda approved power steering fluid the shudder you’re feeling is most likely from a worn rack and pinion or from sticky joints in the suspension. If the rack is wearing out it could be allowing some high-pressure fluid to bypass the steering mechanism at idle which would feel like pulsing in the steering wheel. The only repair here would be to replace the rack, but shouldn’t be something that causes the system to catastrophically fail. The other possibility is that something is sticking in the suspension making it harder to turn the wheel, especially at idle when power steering fluid pressure is at its lowest. You could try raising the front of the vehicle off the ground and turning the wheels by hand to feel for anything sticking and to check for loose joints.

      Thanks again for your question!

      The BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak would would be best for the leak on your Corvette. You will start off by adding 1/3 of the bottle into your power steering reservoir, and should expect to start seeing improvement after 100-200 miles of driving.

      Thank you!

    I have a 2013 MB GLK250 (diesel) took it for regular service and was told fluid leaking out of several places on the steering system, I have never had any noise or steering issues so far. Parts to replace are about $2700. Can your product help me? If so, is it a long term fix or will it return? Thank you!

      Michelle-

      Thank you for asking about your Mercedes Benz. As long as you are not losing power steering fluid too quickly, you would be a good candidate for the BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak. Once the product seals, it would be a permanent seal. Feel free to contact our technical support line at 888-863-0426 with any other questions.

      Thank you!

    I have a 1987 Porsche 944 Turbo with a leak in the rack and pinion. Would your product solve the leak? I’m sure the seals are old.

    My Rack and Pinion is leaking from the driver side boot. But it will leak today but tomorrow I might lose nothing. But then there’s days where I will lose all the power steering fluid

    I had my power steering pump changed twice but it still whines. New mechanic says the old mechanic should have flushed all the old fluid. Says there are metal flakes in the fluid so they suggest replacing the pump and the rack and pinion and doing a flush. Too expensive for my 2010 Ford Focus. Idk if the rack and pinion is leaking or not because I seem to hold fluid. Can your product help if I replaced the pump and fluid flush?

    • BlueDevil Pro on October 2, 2020 at 3:14 pm

      Dawn-

      Thank you for asking about your Ford Focus. It seems like flushing the power steering system and refilling with fresh, clean fluid should correct the issue. If it appears the rack and pinion seal is leaking, the BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak would be the best product to use.

      Thank you!

        Hi I just purchased a used Santa Fe 2009 car and it was safety certified by the dealer for Ontario Canada registration. I took it to my mechanic for an inspection and switching to winter tyres, he said the rear rack and pinion has a level 3 leak. This needs to be fixed and cost would be $1150. When we looked at the car there seems no drop and power steering fluid is also all topped up and no problem to it. Which product would suggest as it not worth replacing the rack and pinion when there seems no leak on floor or power steering loss while driving.

        • BlueDevil Pro on November 2, 2020 at 9:52 am

          Pranav-

          Thank you for asking about your Hyundai Santa Fe. We recommend using the BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak to seal your leaking rack and pinion. To start, you will add 1/3 of the bottle into your power steering reservoir, and should expect to start seeing improvement after 100-200 miles of driving.

    I have an 02 Infiniti G20 that requires ATF transmission fluid for the power steering. I have been told by a mechanic that it’s leaking from rack and pinion. Is it safe to use this with the transmission fluid?

    • BlueDevil Pro on December 9, 2020 at 8:11 am

      Alaina-

      Thank you for asking about your Infiniti G20. Yes, the BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak is safe and compatible to use with the transmission fluid your power steering system requires. You will start by adding 1/3 of the bottle into your power steering reservoir. Expect to start seeing results after 100-200 miles of driving.

    Iam losing fluid fast

    • BlueDevil Pro on December 14, 2020 at 8:35 am

      Mark-

      If you are losing fluid at a rapid rate, you should first try checking for broken/loose hose connections, as this would explain losing fluid so quickly. If the hoses seem fine, the best remedy would be to bring the vehicle to the shop to replace the leaking component.

      Thank you!

    2002 Lexus RX 300 takes dexron ATF. Just had the p/s pump, belt and line replaced on 6/21/21 and fluid is already below minimum/almost empty. Was told after the fact that it’s the rack leaking on the passenger side. Fluid went from full to almost empty between 6/21/21 and 6/22/21 would that leak be too much for this product? Trying to avoid a $900+ repair

    • BlueDevil Pro on June 23, 2021 at 1:28 pm

      Heather-

      Thank you for asking about your Lexus RX. Based on your description, unfortunately, it does sound like the leak you are experiencing is more than what the product is intended for. BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak is intended for leaks that are seeping or lightly dripping. If you are losing fluid as quickly as you described, you would lose the product just as quickly, and wouldn’t really be able to keep it in the system long enough in order to get the benefit of using it. A hard part repair may be your best option.

      Thank you!

    I had a seeping leak on my vehicle around the pinion shaft. I can see it seeping out, and it drips about once every 3 -5 seconds. I put about a half a bottle in and let it idle while turning the wheel for about 30 mins. I then drove it for another hour. It still leaks quite a bit. 🙁 Still hoping it works soon as I see it may take 100-200 miles. One thing I ponder is, what happens when the fluid is gone before the 100-200 miles. Buy more? eek

    • BlueDevil Pro on September 2, 2021 at 8:07 am

      DodgeDurango-

      The BlueDevil Power Steering Stop Leak is intended for leaks that are seeping or lightly dripping. If you are losing all of your power steering fluid before the allotted drive time, the leak you have may be a little too large for what the product would be able to seal. A hard part repair may be your best option in this instance. Feel free to contact our technical support line at 888-863-0426 for further assistance.

      Thank you!

    Had hard steering one time but then it was fine. Mechanic saw a little power steering fluid in boot on drivers side. Will this product help? He recommends replacing rack and pinion. Though the truck drives straight and has no noise in steering. Only issue was the hard steering but it seemed to clear itself up and has not returned?
