Rack I replaced the power steering pump and the rack the other day. When I lower the vehicle down from the lift turning the wheel right or left results in vibration.

I have had to replace the power steering pump on my 2001 windstar 3 times and it still "growls" when when turning. My mechanic said that I might have to replace the rack and pinion assembly. He stated that when he worked for a ford dealership that replacing the rack/pinion was required to solve "growling" problem with windstars that had to have more than one pump installed. This has been a wonderful vehicle and gets terrific mileage..BUT, the steering has always been VERY FIRM or STIFF....any

I already recieved advice as to what might cause my 1997 toyota camry to be leaking oil to the point of needing a quart every day or every other day and was told possibly the piston rings were installed upside down, my question is wouldnt a mechanic notice himself installing them incorrectly? and why is it running through so much power steering fluid? it never had this problem before the engine teardown. I am suspicious that new problems arise so new bills can be racked up.


Most likely that same Toyota engine was used in a few models over a few years Before I dumped more money in it than it is worth to rebuild the engine I would find a used lower mileage toyota engine at an auto recycler and pay to have it installed. Th ... 1997 Toyota Camry

Power steering acts like its low on fluid at an idle. Rack & pinion & pump are a year old. I have an inline filter installed. Removed filter to see if it was pluged, no difference. Plenty of fluid in the reservoir.


Was it a reman pump and rack? You most likely have a problem with the pump again. If it is hard to steer both ways, it will be the pump. If it is hard to steer only one way, it will be the rack. ... 1999 Ford Windstar
