Tip & How-To about 1996 Ford Aerostar Extended

Power steering line seals

When replacing the power steering rack, microwave a coffee cup of water and put the white seals in the hot water, then stretch them just a little with the tips of your long nose pliers, just before putting them on the ends of the metal pipes.

I own a Toyota Camry LE 2006 . Recently I took it for a 36 point inspection. The inspector told me that I needed to do some fixtures on the vehice. However, I do not understand the meaning s. Can you explain to me what each of them mean/ I am listing them in order : 1: Leaking Water pump - How do I notice this in the car ? What will happen to tell me that the water pump is leaking? 2. Under Steering compnents it says Rack is Leaking, Passenger bello torn open. 3. LF Strut /stunt is seeping. I want to know what each of them mean. What problems in the car will tell me that the above problems are there Can you provide me witjh an estimate of how much it will cost to replace all of them or fix these problems.


What engine size? how many miles on the vehicle?

1: Leaking Water pump - How do I notice this in the car ?

Typically you will see a lot of dried up coolant around the water pump. If the coolant level gets low enough it will cause the vehicle to over heat and potentially do a lot of damage.

Water pumps are extremely common on these years.

2. Under Steering components it says Rack is Leaking, Passenger bellow torn open.

The rack is the part that turns the wheels left and right. If a bellow is torn and there is fluid coming out of it than the seals in the rack have gone bad. Eventually enough fluid will leak out and cause the power steering to no longer work and possibly ruin the power steering pump.

3. LF Strut /stunt is seeping.

It means that the oil on the strut is starting to leak out. The strut is what absorbs the bumps in the road and holds your tires down on the road. Eventually the strut will loose its ability to do this and the tires will start to cup. It is not uncommon for struts to show signs of leaking and is usually the first indicator that the strut is starting to fail.

Hope that helped.

Steering gear boot seepage.


the sterring rack (this is the long rack) must be replaced to correct this leak, the internal seal bore is most likely scored.
