It is not uncommon for the power steering rack to develop a fluid leak requiring replacement of the rack assembly. Loss of power steering fluid may also cause an abnormal noise and damage to the power steering pump

    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.
