jumped in my 94 deville today and had a wicked whine from teh steering pump. it has whined alittle since i bought it over 3 years ago, but this was a very bad whine. I popped the cap off of the pump and it was bone dry.
i added fluid, and it was back to normal. i get to work, park the car noticed a nice leak of fluid near the front drivers tire. So i looked on alldata and it says its either an inner rack seal, or teh pinion shaft seal is shot.
how bad of a job is this? the weather is supposed to be alittle nicer, so i plan on doing this over the weekend. i may aswell replace the pump too, sickntired of the whine.
Today, i looked at it. It turns out to be a line from the rack to the pump cooler. its just a little friggin pin hole in the hard line. its a metal/rubber line. it looks like it would be a bitch to replace! it goes from the rack, along the frame rail, to the pump cooler.
