Just got my '04 GTO (3000 miles) out of the shop where it was most of last week while waiting on a new rack and pinion assembly to be "overnighted" from Australia. (...funny how they use the term "overnight" from Australia...today here is already tomorrow over there...). They installed the new assembly at the dealership and it seems to be OK now. I never would have known that I had a power steering fluid leak (where the high and low pressure lines come into the rack and pinion assembly) unless the guys at Jiffy Lube (first oil change) had told me. It was a slow leak and I had seen absolutely no fluid on my driveway or on my garage floor. I had, however, noticed a funny smell from beneath the car recently. When I took it to the dealership they told me that power steering fluid was leaking from the R&P assembly and onto the catalytic converter, that it was a fire hazard, and that I should not drive it at all until it was repaired. Another first year bug???
