How much will it cost to replace a rack and pinion on a '92 Honda Accord? on 1992 Honda Accord

Hi, I am trying to buy a 1992 Honda Accord and the seller has informed me that the power steering fluid leaks from time to time and he adds some when needed and says he may use a 12 oz. bottle a month. He's not sure if it's just a leak or if the rack and pinion will need to be replaced, which is very costly he explained. Can I easily tell which needs to be done? And how much will the rack and pinion repair cost? I'm getting the car for a great price and would just like to know if it will be worth it all. Thanks!

if it is the rack the estimate is 600.00 to 1500.00.maybe you can get lucky and just have a hose leak.good luck.
