2002 Mitsubishi Diamante Q&A

2002 Mitsubishi Diamante Question: Pow. steer rack boot has a hole /02 mitsubushi diamante can I just replace boot?

Or do I have to replace entire power steering rack. I put fluid in at least twice per week. A mechanic looked and said I need to replace rack. -
Answer 1
If the fluid is leaking out, that is more than just a boot problem, that is a seal problem. You can have just a torn or punctured rack boot, but NO fluid can be leaking out. Again, if there is fluid loss out of the rack, the rack needs to be replaced. -

Thanks for your response, I was just looking to make sure I needed to replace the rack, their is a hole in the boot and quite a bad leak. I will go along with replacing the rack when I get the $$$$. -
