Question about 2004 Ford Taurus
Posted by Anonymous on
Is it the pump or the hose there is a high pressure hose that usually starts to leak before the pump goes . spray some cleaner on the pressure hose and get it clean then crank it on and have someone turn the steering wheel a couple of times to see if you can spot the leak.

check the pressure switch located on top of the rack and pinion. It will have a wire harness conected to it. It's on the drivers side towards firewal

I almost got this. Does the fluid level go down ever few days with no leaking hoses,no leaking cooler if you have one and nothing coming out of the steering rack boots. It has to go somewhere. if it just comes out the cap the pump is not pulling it and sending it to the rack so you should not have much in the way of power steering. Did you put a new belt on wrong if posible and turn the pump backwards. Only other possibility is a flow blockage. Pull the return line,disable the ignition and crank engine. You should eventually pump fluid completely through the system and out the return line like it was headed back to the resevoir.

Testimonial: "Thanks, I will definately try that. I think it is probably flow blockage"
Sounds like you need a new power steering hose. To verify this, I would dry up any wet areas on the hose and pump with a towel, get a flashlight and start the vehicle and try to determine the exact site of the leak which is usually at the ends of the hoses. Good luck!

It might be the rack and pinion kit (seals)
I had this problem 2 months ago... replaced the powersteering pump 3 times until I convinced the mechanics to look at the rack and pinion. there they found the leak, especially when I turned the wheel.. They first kept telling me there was air in the lines and it would go away. but that never happened.
