Customer Question
Hi - my power...

Hi - my power steering on a 2002 acura TL has a leak. It looks like its at the point where the return line enters the pinion. Im wondering if I need to replace the whole rack, or the line. suggestions?

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to help find that for your Acura TL. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

Just that I dont see the leak at the boot... not sure if that matters or not. thx

Ok. Where do you normally see the leaks he rack? I thought I would be coming out of one of the boots, but it looks like its coming more from where the return lines connects to the pinion.
Mechanic for Acura: Kevin, Auto Mechanic replied 6 months ago

Most commonly the end of the rack but the pinion area leaking is also not unheard of

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
