    I have an 04 tacoma that has a body lift and large tires, I recently noticed a pw steering leak and thought it was my pump, a mechanic told me today that my rack might be bad and if it's not then it's the seals hoses? Anyone else have a issue like this? Any suggestions? Also my drivers side door make a hiss when I have the air on high or when I'm on the freeway. I think the door needs to latch tigher but there doesn't seem to be any way to tighten it. Once again any help will be much appriciated!

    Thank you!

    I had a power steering leak which turned out to just be the pump. It just went out with time I guess. Where is the fluid coming from? Is it spraying fluid everywhere or is it just a small leak? When mine went out, it was squirting fluid all over the hood.
