And the score is ... Power Steering Rack 2, Rick 0

Less than 2 months and 4,000 miles after being replaced @ 203k miles, the Volvo's Power Steering Rack suffered a catastrophic leak last night.   It sprung a leak while pulling into a parking space and basically lost all the fluid by the time we could get out and look at it.   The car was still driveable and the problem was not really noticable on most of Route 128, but the Victor was not up to taking the ramp from 128 South to 9 East at his usual speed.

At least this one is covered by warantee.
