Q: How much of a leak is serious with the rack-n-pinion? Is it dangerous? on 1994 Ford Taurus

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I have to add fluid every day and occasionally see smoke where it drips.

Oil dripping on an exhaust pipe is not a good thing.Assuming you have confirmed that it is the rack leaking,not the power steering pump,or a hose.At some point,a low fluid situation may result in a power assist problem,or kill off what may still be a good pump.
