Haven't fixed it. Was leaking very slightly when I bought it used, leak has gotten a little bit worse with time.
began to leak at 160000, leaks out literally as fast as you can fill it at 197555. Replacement doesn't look too bad. This is a good car to learn mechanic work on because it is easy to get to what ever you are trying to replace without removal of other things.
The rack is leaking on the driver's side about where the power steering pump sits.
