While removing the steering rack of 97 Explorer (2wd), a little orifice dropped out of either the pressure or return tubing connection, i dont know which. The replacement rack does not have an orifice in either connection. Should I put this in the new rack, and if so, which port,and facing which direction? (This little thing is about 3/8"dia X 1/8"thick with "big" opening on one side and small orifice on the other)


Is there a way to get a picture of the item posted?You can also eMail it to [email protected] "sounds" like a flow restrictor, or tubing ferrule.It should go in with the smaller end first (like a cork).Thanks ... Ford Explorer

I have a 2003 mustang v6 i recently changed both ball joints because i had pull, swaying motion and vibration while driving. The car is a little better the the problems are still occuring. I also have a leake from the left side of the rack and pinion strerring? Can it be the innner and outer tie rods or the rack and pinion sterring all together? I alinged the car and was told by the sears tec that the sterring components were ok although i dont no how true thats is. Please help.


This could be a few things, I would first start by having the front tires inspected and balanced. Unbalanced tires or a tire with a broken belt can cause both a sway and a vibration. If the tires check out then the only components left are the ... Ford Mustang
