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

The gear box is a common problem on this model. That would be the place I would start. A cheap, temporary fix is to go to your local parts store and ask for Lucas Power Steering Stop-Leak. It will buy you some time.

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.
