    Squeeze the bellow boots where the tie rods come out of the rack. If they leak or feel like they are full of fluid buy a bottle of Lucas power steering additive and after sucking all of the PS fluid out of the reservoir fill it with the LUCAS. It takes 6 to 8 weeks for the LUCAS to recondition the rack seals but it does work great and save you from having to replace the steering rack. Just keep adding the LUCAS as it leaks for those few weeks..

    The LUCAS won't work on PS line leaks so if the lines are leaking replace the lines.

    Check -

    Pump leaking at shaft behind pulley

    Reservoir-to-pump seal leaking

    High or low pressure hose leaking at either end

    Steering rack leaking

    The only fix is to replace the offending part. Stop leak additives may slow the leak for awhile but won't fix it. Allowing your car to leak on somebody else's driveway is bad juju and won't earn you any gold stars. Park in the street instead when visiting friends.

    Clean the entire area first with starting fluid. Really blast it on to get all the oil and dirt off. Then let it dry, it should be dry in less than a minute. Then have a friend run the engine and turn the wheel. It will be easier to see where the oil is coming from when it is clean and dry.

    Turn the wheel to the lock and hold it. If there's a leak you will see it.
