    It looks to be coming off below the splined shaft where that shaft instersects with the steering linkage. Thanks for the fast replies.

If it's coming off the "steering box", not the power steering pump, the part is called a "pitman arm".

    It's leaking around your pitman arm. You will need to replace the steering box itself.

  • its420_us May 24, 2009

    It is your "steering box" that you will need to replace. Junk yards will usually sell the box and pitman arm as one. And a better rating would be nice here as well.

Just put new power steering pump in 2009 f350 but steering still tight could this be a faulty pump or do I need to bleed system


Does the pump still whine? How did you purge the air? Fords have always been a pain. So I do them all the same (newer ones could be different, But) When I replace a pump or rack or hoses, I pull fuses to keep the engine from running. With the engine running the pump turns to fast and will not purge the air, causing the fluid to come out of the PS pump vent down the road. What I do is pull those fuses, crank the engine and turn the steering wheel at least ten times from one side to the other. Left to right is one time. This method works every time. Old Fords to new ones. You could have bought a bad pump, But the rack and pinion could also be bad. Things to look for on the rack leaks are, Fluid around the boots, Fluid from the top of the gear to the steering shaft, and fluid from the bottom cover of the steering gear, Right below the steering shaft. Any of these indicate a bad seal. But the main seal is in the center of the rack. It can be bad and have no leaks. this is uncommon though.

Clunking noises during acceleation,steering wheel went out,and leaking fluid. What could this be?


Some 99+ GM vehicles have problems with the intermediate steering shaft. There is a special grease that goes in the shaft but on some it leaks out and causes a "clunking" or vibration in the steering. If it is leaking power steering fluid then that can be solved by finding the source and replacing the part. The pump could leak, the line from the pump could leak and the steering rack itself could leak. Need to find out which one is the problem first.

A clunk during acceleration is likely in the drive train. Could be a loose universal joint or a lot of play in the differential.

My 2006 chevy impala has a massive power steering fluid leak, so my power steering goes out. This problem is solved when there is fluid in the system. Do i need to replace the entire power steering pump?...


you just need to check your steering pipes and hoses for any leaks. just replace them if a leak is found. if your reservoir itself has a leak, then your only best bet is to replace the whole ting ..

What would happen if the lower sector shaft seals were damaged


Are you refering to the seal on the bottom side of the steering gear box? The side the pitman arm connects? If the seal is damaged and leaking you can run out of power steering fluid which in turn could rouine your power steering pump and steering gear box.

2004 4.2 ltr envoy power steering stopped working - no leaking


Most likely the power steering pump is your problem. It sounds like the shaft inside the pump has broken and it is not pumping fluid. I would install a new pump and see what happens. The other option would be the rack and pinion (steering gear). The power steering pump is the cheaper of the two and usually the problem. I hope this helps you.

Check the power steering fluid level. What you describe could be the noise made when fluid level is low. It's not good for the pump, so if that's the problem, fill to proper level, check for leaks, as it shouldn't be losing fluid. countrycurt0
