Steering Rack Question on 1997 Honda Accord

About 3,000 miles ago the service shopsaid the "right side steering rack is torn. Evidence of leakage from steering rack assembly and slight oil pan leakage". It was not severe so I postponed looking into it until now when I'm due for my next oil change. I don't know if the rack should be replaced or what until I take the car in for another look. Any advice welcomed. I have put a lot of money into this car in the past 12 months and love the car but don't want to be a constant repair junkie.

the older they get, the more they need. if the bulkhead seal is leaking, i would replace the rack. it is pricy but worth the piece of mind. check our estimator tab at the top for pricing near you. Roy
