Take a picture of it before you take it apart so you know where everything goes.
1.Take belt off
2. Unbolt any bracket that the power steering pump is bolted too.( only if you have to unbolt a bracket)
3. Disconnect lines from steering pump
4. After replacing power steering pump fill with Auto. trans fluid.
5. After filling start car and turn wheel left and right a few times this will get the air out of the system and recheck fluid level.

SOURCE: 2002 ford escape tie rod squeaks

My outer tie rod did the same thing when just out of warranty. I could tell it was "bad" by putting my hand on the tie rod while someone else turned the steering a little and I could easily feel the vibration.
Check the other side to feel the difference. Tie rods don't cost that much, if you can replace it yourself, and take a chance on foregoing the wheel alignment. Maybe a $150? job at the shop.
In my case, a tie rod was not readily available. I verified that it was a good joint; no shake or rattle. Then I squirted a little WD40 inside the boot, and put it back together. 70,000 miles later, the new tie rod is still on my shelf waiting for the squeak to return.

It might be the rack and pinion kit (seals)

I had this problem 2 months ago... replaced the powersteering pump 3 times until I convinced the mechanics to look at the rack and pinion. there they found the leak, especially when I turned the wheel.. They first kept telling me there was air in the lines and it would go away. but that never happened.

2002 ford escape stiff steering when car is at stop or moving less then 2-3 mph.what could be the causes and where would i go in boston to find the most inexpensive parts? thanks

i would have the rack and pinion checked out, and the power steering pump, sounds like 1 of them might be starting to give you a problem, also make sure that the power steering has the proper amount of fluid in it. i would check with the local auto parts stores for parts.

Are these known for this.(steering leaks) 02 escapes.

The rack and pinion power steering is known for leaking. It is inherent in the system as long as it doesn't leak by the bucket, most leak a few drops and it's no big deal. If it leaks a lot, there are plenty of power steering leak stops on the market. You didn't say if it leaks at the pump or the rack and pinion, but both have seals you can replace if needed.

Changing plugs and power steering pump on an escape

I have a 2002 Escape V6 w/ 100,000 miles and I just changed the plugs. If you have a V6, you will have to remove the Upper Intake manifold. It's not too bad. You'll new a gasket set from Autozone or NAPA for about $10
