is it practical and cost effective to repair a rack and penion fluid leak on a 1981 Volvo 242 DL with power steering? I mean the power steering works but it leaks fluid from under the right right bower rubber boot. Should I need to replace the rack and penion unit, what should I expect to pay for a unit, rebuilt or used and labor to put it on? Also, the fuel pump in the tank, what should I expect to pay to replace it if needed?
