Is there a way to fix the swivel fitting on the high pressure powersteering line? Quick Fix? The end that goes into the rack.

I would imagine/guess that is it press fitted in there with teflon & Rubber O-Rings...Just a guess..I have never had to deal with the swivel leaking...But I am a hydraulics tech from back in the day... :D ...SHould be pretty simple...

I've never seen one that would hold the pressure after being "fixed",maybe someone else knows a secret way of keeping one from leaking when the seals go bad.You can always try some Lucas or Barrs Power Steering stop leak,they will swell the PS seals,the Barrs worked on my Towncar steering box seals....but the best thing is to do what SHO said...replace it,then you don't have to worry.
