Sounds like 1 bad CV joint. Not sure which side. Look at the front axles, and if 1 or more of the boots are torn then that one is most likely the culprit. If you can grab the axles, feel for free plat. A decent shop will be able to pinpoint the bad CV joint and either grease it and replace the boot, or more likely, replace the complete axle on the bad side.

Noises can be tough...especially over the internet where the noise cannot be heard....WHERE are you hearing the noise? Does it sound like it is INSIDE the passenger compartment or OUTSIDE, like in the engine compartment"?

Have your front end checked for worn parts, ball joints, bushings, tie rod ends, you definitely need a front end alignment.

1998 for windstar gl..grinding noise in steering


i don't think it is the pump. The pump would generally make a noise all the time because the motor's belt is what powers your power steering pump. Sometimes you will hear it bog down the motor when it is being turned all the way to one side or the other but that sould be about it. The grinding you described sounds like a rack and pinion problem and not anything to do with the pump itself. I hope im wrong because rack and pinion fixes are much more expensive and time comsuming to repair

Steering problems


the windstar is very common for leaking powersteering racks, one way to check is to squeeze the boot that goes over the inner tierod and onto the steering rack, if it is squishy you will require a new steering rack

99 ford windstar hear grinding when wheel turns


Mechanic replaced the rack and pinon that was leaking-that was the noise, air getting into the hose. The engine was a seperate problem and the IMP?? was replaced. The part was cheeper than the labor cost for this one!!
