if you have not replaced the tension pulley and the idler pulley it might be them. but i too just had my power steering pump replaced and i took it back. the garage said that ford states that a manufactured pump has a 500 mile break in time. if after that then you have a bad pump and should be replaced again.

How do you get your power steering pump bracket off so you can get your power steering pump off a 2004 Ford Tarus


This may be helpful. Not familiar with '04, but 1998 Ford Taurus requires you to first pull off the power steering pump pulley using a pulley tool borrowed from a local parts store. The alternative is to break the pulley (plastic) with a hammer to get to the bolts and then use the pulley tool to
get the rest of the pulley loose and replace with another 10 or 11 dollar pulley after you have remounted the steering pump and bracket. The reason the pulley has to come off is there is another
bolt behind the pulley. Hope this is helpful.

How to use a power stearing pully kit


There are a few different kinds. So take this into consideration. If it's the clamp type: loosen the side nuts and place the two arms into the groove on the front of the steering pump pulley and tighten them down as tight as you can. Take the bolt that goes into the center and tighten it just before it makes contact in the center of the pulley. If you have the spacer/washer to go on the end put it on and tighten the center nut to push in on the pump shaft INSIDE of the pulley. This should pull the pulley off while pressing on the inner shaft. (sometimes these things slip out of the pulley groove and you might have to use a "C" clamp to hold them together tight enough), while slipping a large wrench over the sides that dont have the jaws on them.

If it's the slip on type: back the bolt out of it. Slip it into the pulley groove and tighten the center bolt into the pulley, and make contact with the pump shaft, INSIDE of the pulley. Put a large wrench on the tool to hold it still, and tighten the center bolt.

What I'm afraid is that you're doing it inside of the engine compartment. And there's not much room. You may be able to get to it by removing the front tire and jacking the van up.
