I have a 2002 MDX and the power steering fluid drains

Customer Question

Customer: Hello. I have a 2002 MDX and the power steering fluid drains straight out of the reservoir when I start the car.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: While the car is running moments later is begins to leak from the boot on the rack but boot is not damaged. Also while the car is off I turn the wheel to the left and right the fluid would come in and out of the reservoir
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Acura Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: ok
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hi I'm Kevin it sounds as though your steering rack end seal is leaking . The rack gait or is only there to prevent road dirt from getting near the ends seal on the rack . The end seal seals the outer rack and the ram so the ram can move as steering is turned without leaking . The fact you have oil in fault or means the seal is breached and either a new rack or removal or rack for rebuilt will be needed
