Fellas,

Getting all the mechanical stuff done is a never ending job. I have not found out that my power steering control valve is leaking. Should I buy a rebuilt one or try to rebuild? ANYONE REBUILT ONE? IS IT A BIG JOB?

Asked myself the same questions couple years ago, went for a rebuilt one. It was pourly rebuilt and was leaking. I had to take it appart (not that bad)& fix it. It was then fine. If I had to do it again, I would buy a new one or rebuild it myself.
PS: There is a greaser under the ball stud, STUFF IT as much as you can or you will be leaking in that area too (I don't know if this is normal but that's how I fixed it !)

I would also weigh in with rebuilding it yourself if not buy new.

The hardest part about rebuilding or replacing it is the removal. It is pretty easy to rebuild, although mine leaked worse than ever after I rebuilt it. I ended up buying a rebuilt one. The first rebuilt one leaked. I exchanged it for another one, which (knock on wood) worked great. AutoZone had the best price on rebuilt ones that I found. You can get it off their web-sire or they can special order it at the store for you.
