leaking -- it looks like a seal might have blown out -
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. -
