POWER STEERING RACK AND PINION REPLACEMENT

My garage says there is a leak in the system and that the system needs to be replaced, which is very expensive. I notice no steering problem when driving, the power steering fluid remains full and I have no leaks on my garage floor. Another garage recommended this before, but they also made a number of other recommendations on items that did not need to be replaced. How do I know if the leak is serious enough to replace the whole system? Should I use a power steering leak fluid to see it is repairs the leak?

Do you
have the same problem?

You can try the power steering stop leak on it and see what happens

If your fluid is ok and no drips on floor and it's working properly IGNORE them? Sounds like a make work recommendation. You'd be hard pressed to find a car with absolutely no seepage of fluids!
