A few months back, my high-mileage '05 needed some front suspension work, including a new rack. Shortly thereafter, the car was leaking fluid and smelling awful. (When the rack leaks, it blows back on the exhaust.) Dealer put in a new rack. Same problem. Another new rack. Same problem. Didn't even drive my car today because, on start-up, it was groaning something awful. The dealer has consistently said it's not the pump. QUESTION: Could they be filling the reservoir with the wrong fluid, and if so, would that cause this? I notice the owner's manual says to use Dexron ATF, which is automatic transmission fluid, not DOT 3 or 4 power steering fluid.

Any luck with this issue? I'm about to replace the rack on my 06 because it leaks like a siev. No pump whine or noise though.
