RE: Power steering leak, help!
Hey guys.. i have a 2000 Dodge Dakota Sport 4x4 Ext. Cab. I bought the truck about a month ago and only put on 500 miles, and they inspected the truck and before the rack was fine. I got the recall done on my ball joints today and they said my rack is leaking and that my left tie rod is loose! No warranty on the truck anymore. I'm pissed. They want to replace the entire rack and pinion assembly (comes with both tie rods, etc). The part will cost $700 and labor of about $120 or so.. I'm taking it into a repair shop tomorrow (other than the dodge dealership) to check it out, but do you guys really think it is already busted? A 2000 Dakota with 42,410 miles on it..
