SOURCE: 2003 Taurus Power Steering 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

all the boot does is keep dirt from getting to the lip seal if its leaking youl atleast need to replace seal and boot i think on that model youl need a specialty inner tie rod tool to remove before you can get the seal out. if it was me i believe id replace the whole rack if you plan on keeping the rig long hope this helps please rate me thanks

rack and-or pinion... Good thing the 98 is a very good and popular windstar, its not as bad as it sounds.

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!
