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.

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.

SOURCE: loud noise in the steering column;gear box replacd recently

ASE mechanic:
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

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.

The car will not turn left. It's like the power steering has gone out.


You need to replace the Rack and Pinion. It's mounted on the firewall. If by chance you don't have a rack and Pinion gear, not likely but possible, you will need to replace the steering gear box, not the power steering pump but the gear box itself. All of this assumes you have looked under the vehicle and both tie rods are intact.

Believe it or not there are some problems you should take to the dealer. It never was the gear box, its a defective steering column bushing. That problem had a factory notice and the dealer would have diagnosed it immediately an fixed it free parts +$40.install. Tahoes get that problem.
