The flex pipe was rusted out, so had a new one installed. The job was quick, and was done in less than an hour. The bigger issue is with the power steering fluid leaking, the shop said it'd take the entire steering rack replaced to fully correct the problem (which costs >$2,000), but we chose the easy way of putting a "plug" in that only costs $50. The mechanic said the "plug" might last as long as the car's life. So we'll see to that.
