Having problems with your 1998 Toyota Sienna ?

There is power steering fluid dripping from the passenger side boot covering the rod that connects to the wheel. Could a simple replacement of the boot be the fix, or is there a problem with the main unit that drives the rod?

Answers :

Your getting a leaky seal on the shaft of the "Rack and Pinion" assy. Try to remove some of the fluid from the power steering reservoir (with a turkey baster or equivalent) and then add some "power steering stop leak and conditioner". If it still leaks after two days you will need to replace the rack and pinion assy. Good luck.
Sounds like you have a bad rack and pinion. The boot is there to protect the inner tie rod from dirt and debris it doesn't seal anything. There is a seal behind the boot and the seal is leaking. Once the seal starts to leak replacing the rack is your best bet at fixing the problem.
