2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee Question: steering makes screeching noise

10,000 miles ago the dealer replaced a power steering hose. Now the car makes a loud screeching noise at the end of the steering range. They said it was the rack and pinion leaking and it would $800 to fix. Does this make sense? Thank you

    It sounds like the system could be low on fluid, and that could be from a leaking power steering rack. If you are ever curious about a diagnosis that a shop gives you, take the time to go there and have them show you were it's leaking, all good shops will gladly do this, it helps to build trust and that goes along way. If they wont do it, I would seriously consider going somewhere else.
