    The Cause Behind Rack Leakage

    Recently we have seen an increase in our customers sending in their power steering rack and pinions to be rebuilt due to seal leakage. The most common cause of rack and pinion seal leakage is a result of the power steering pump over-heating. When the pump over-heats, it causes the fluid temperatures to rise to a point where it damages the seals not only in the pump, but in the rack and pinions as well.
