2 99 Ford Ranger questions!

I have a 99 Ford Ranger 3 L V6 2wd. I have 2 questions I would really like help with please!

1. My drivers side of my rack and pinion is leaking, I have to fill my power steering about once every 3 weeks. I bought the seal kit for it but would like to know how eactly to replace the seals and if anyone has done it before and how hard it is please.

2. Whenver my steering column gets really hot from the sun my truck doesnt start. When I try to start it my theft light just flashes, meaning it has to do with my anti theft. I don't have any alarm system on my truck, just the standard anti theft light. If anybody knows how to disconnect the anti theft or get this to stop please do tell.

Please respond with any answers ot help to these questions!

The truck is equipped with Passive Anti Theft, standard on rangers with your engine.

To disable it you will need a programmer with a tune to remove it from the computer. Otherwise you will need to have the issue looked at by the dealer.

My truck did that once i disconnected the battery for a few minutes and it never came back. Not sure why but its worth a try.
