Question about 1992 Ford Crown Victoria
Mine was leaking from a line attached to the power steering box. The line is installed with a teflon or other plastic washer to provide a good seal. However, the seal or ring seems to erode over time. I replaced the line for about $15 and the part was available from my local ford stealership. Hasn't leaked since. Not too hard to replace either.

My husband is having the same problem. his is leaking bad! using a quart of fluid each time you move the car! New they are 200 dollars or more. we found one at a local salvage yard for 50 dollars. Good LUCK!

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 would take vehicle back to repair shop. it sounds like if they replaced the gear box they may have made an improper adjustment on the steering linkage to the gear box. and everytime you start it the power steering pump sends fluid to the gear box comes a popping noise. or there is something loose on the gear box. and no there is no belt on the gear box, but yes on the power steering pump. keep me posted

I just found 1 of my power steering leaks in my 1990 toy pickup. My high pressure line has a hole in it. I used a florecent die kit to locate the leak. You can get it at Autozone.

Dealer, but did you check the Power steering fluid level??or any leaks. There are two hose that connect to the gear box from the power steering pump. if the pump is low on fluid you lose your power steering, if the hose has a leak or it blew and lost the power steering fluid then you lost your power steering again.
Check the fluid level to the power steering pump and any leaks or broken hose to the gear box.
Keep me posted, be glad to help and good luck.

SOURCE: POWER STEERING GEAR BOX LEAK
would imagine their is just a oil seal their ,but whats causing the pressure behind the seal to make it leak ,yes i have repaired power steering boxes befoe now but on commercial vehicles 30+years ago ,principle still the same no doubt but i would advise you to get one from a scrapyard so vehicle is usable then when time permits have a play with the old one ,because you may find that its its cheaper to replace than repair with the cost of the spares
