SOURCE: power steering rack leaking

If it's coming from the rack, check the rubber boots from the rack to the inner tie rods, and if they are soaked with fluid, you will need a new rack, or keep adding fluid to the pump as needed.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: How to remove the rack and pinion on 95 grand am

To make it easier to remove, Place a jack at the rear of the of the sub frame.Remove the rear bolts which there are usually 2 on each side or more.Next make sure the car is high enough off the ground loosen the front bolts.DO NOT REMOVE!!!!!!!After you have done that slowly let down on the jack.Just enough to pull the rack out..Lowering the jack to far could break some stuff so be careful and go slow..

SOURCE: leaking hose in between power steering pump and rack and pinion

I agree with snowboard. Another name for the line wrench is "tubing wrench". It looks like a common boxed end wrench with six "points" or places of contact inside the boxed end but has a slot cut in it so it will slip over the metal tube part of the hose. Using this type of wrench you are less likely to "round off" the shoulders of the tubing nut. You won't be able to have the hose fixed. Well, you CAN, but it's much cheaper to buy a new one. I believe they're around $20.00 or so.
If the nut is recessed or some sort of wierd shape, try going to the dealership and talking to a mechanic. I've talked them into renting me a specialized tool. Some of the larger auto part supply stores also rent tools for a small fee. I think what you will need is the tubing wrench. Spend a few extra dollars and replace both hoses while you are getting greasy. That way you won't have to bother with it again for quite a while.

Put new power steering pump on 1997 ford thunderbird, still does not work, although pump is working, no power steering


I had this problem on an '81 Cougar. It was dirt in the steering rack and /or proportioning valve. Rack and pinion systems are suseptable to sticking due to contaminated fluid. Also, if you used the incorrect fluid - that can be the cause of this problem.
You can try to change the fluid, that did help some on mine. In the end I needed to go to the salvage yard. If you change the rack - don't forget to have an alignment done.

Powersteering leakage of the rack and pinion unit.


The problem with only replacing the seals is that the inside of the rack maybe worn which caused the seals to leak in the first place. First I would try some Lucas or similar product power steering stop leak. This may or may not stop the leak for awhile. Second...I would replace the rack with a rebuilt unit. I personally would not try to replace the seals. Good luck with it.

1994 ford probe, steering wheel locks upand I can't turn the ignition.


Make sure there is no tension on your steering wheel, ie; wheels are straight and the steering wheel is not sitting sideways.
Sometimes the pressure from any kind of bind on the front wheels/rack and pinion, can cause the ignition to lock. Especially when parked on inclines.

This may be your problem.


FORD: 1994-96 THUNDERBIRD LINCOLN-MERCURY: 1994-96 COUGAR ISSUE: Steering efforts at low speeds may intermittently increase to the heavier for highway setting on some vehicles. This is due to electrical "noise" from the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) being picked up by the Electronic Variable Orifice (EVO) module. The EVO module then interprets this as an increase in vehicle speed and reduces the steering assistance to the heavier for highway level.
ACTION: Replace the EVO module with a new module that has improved filtering for electrical noise. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.
SERVICE PROCEDURE Replace EVO module (F6SZ-3F712-BB). Locations are as follows:
  • On 1994-95 vehicles, the EVO module is located under the package tray in the trunk.
  • On 1996 vehicles, the EVO is located under the heater blower case on the passenger side.
Refer to Section 11-02 of the appropriate year Thunderbird/Cougar Service Manual for additional diagnosis and repair information.

PART NUMBER PART NAME F6SZ-3F712-BB Electronic Variable Orifice Module OTHER APPLICABLE ARTICLES: NONE
WARRANTY STATUS: Eligible Under The Provisions Of Bumper To Bumper Warranty Coverage
OPERATION DESCRIPTION TIME 960402A Replace Electronic Variable Orifice (EVO) Module - 1994-95 Thunderbird/Cougar 0.5 Hr. 960402B Replace Electronic Variable Orifice (EVO) Module - 1996 Thunderbird/Cougar 0.3 Hr.

Powersteering will turn right but no left turning power


You have a failed steering rack, this problem is caused by a defective seal inside the steering rack, you need to replace it, make sure you flush the PS system, as it will most likely be full of debris from the failed rack unit.
