Question about Mercury Sable
The problem can be in power steering pump and the rack and pinion assembly. But if pump and pinion checked ok.then,it could be the silencer in the high pressure line or the filter in the low side.
There might be a screen in the bottom of the pump reservior that has become restricted.
But if you replaced or checked everything and the problem is same.then,
The problem is not the power steering pump. Your steering rack seals have failed and you need to rebuild or replace the steering rack. This is a common problem with the Sable of your vintage. To confirm, check out the tie rod boots.That when the car is running the boots fill with fluid. The rack boots actually fill while driving, draining the reservoir and if the boot(s) don't rupture, the fluid runs back into the reservoir when the engine is shut down and causes the fluid to squirt out the top.
