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.

    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 $$$$.
