Unhappy rack & pinion problems

I have a 2003 turbo dream cruiser. It started making a whining sound and shortly after it started I lost all power steering and the noise quit. So I took it to my repair shop and they took it apart and found the high pressure hose was cracked so they assumed that was the problem. After fixing the hose and putting the car back together they tell me now the pump is out. So after another labor charge to take it back apart and fix the new problem they tell me the power steering is still gone. Now they tell me the rack & pinion is bad. Does any one have any ideas on y the whole system would go out at the same time?

Great shop. Sounds like they are building up to take a nice spring vacation on your wallet. Apparently they aren't doing the proper tests to pinpoint the exact cause of your problem and just fixing whatever they find in hopes that will cure it. Not too much you can do now. Was this shop recommended by a friend?

Thumbs down Re: rack & pinion problems

No its one I've used in the past and never had a problem. Guess ill take my business elsewhere. Side note. I picked my car up today and made it bout 4 miles down the road and it started overheating. I called them and they forgot to bleed the air out of the coolent lines after the changed the radiator. Good job guys.
