To get it back to a "new" like ride, you're probably gong to need to replace struts and bushings. Any good shop can do the work - shop for good price & guarantee.

Power steering is whining. Cleaned reservoir and refilled. Still whining. What do I do next?

I had a grinding noise on my 1997 Cadillac Deville Limousine and I tried some 'Bar's Leak' Power Steering Fluid that claims to quiet down noisy comopressors, and to thicken and lubricate. So, I tried it 2 days ago, and ran it 100 mi. like it said, and there WAS an improvement in the worn out Power Steering Pump. The cost was like $11 for the product at Walmart, including getting a Turkey Baster to remove the old fluid in the reservoir, that would overflow if I added the whole bottle. I used 1/2 of a bottle and it did seem to improve the sound of the belt driven pump which I gather has worn out splines and bearing inside after 126,000 mi. or so. It certainly was cheaper than spending $500 for a new pump to be installed including evacuating the a/c which I was told was necessary on my particular vehicle.
Hm. $11 last chance try vs. $500. So, I tried the $11 fix and so far it is so much better, that I don't plan to have the power steering pump replaced.

Will a transmission #ax4s from 1988 ford windstar fit a 200 windstar with transmission # ax4s

I dont think that will work ....1988 was aod and aode trans

The AXOD-E was renamed AX4S in 1993. In addition to the name change, improvements in the lubrication of the gearset and capacity upgrades were made. A centrifugal piston assembly was implemented in the intermediate clutch position to improve 1st-2nd and 2nd-1st shift quality and an increase in the clutch's durability was made on some models. High energy friction materials were also introduced. A new twin piston torque converter clutch (TCC) was introduced with the AX4S and the AX4N on some models. The transaxle pan on this model will sometimes read "AXOD Metric" since it's based on the AXOD transaxle. The data plate code for this transmission is "L."
The Ford AX4S automatic transmission is a four-speed electronic overdrive transmission used in 1995 to 2000 Ford Windstar minivan. The transmission is also used in 1991 to 2003 Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable, and 1993 to 1995 Ford Taurus SHO models. The AX4S is a second-generation version of the AXOD and AXOD-E transmissions used in 1986 to 1991 Ford Taurus.

Should be on your 2nd timing belt. If you have the 4cyl engine there is a balance belt that needs to be changed also. Mitsubishi recomends replacement at every 60,000 miles, your 10k over. Most of the time these motors are not interferance engines, But I have seen a few that broke a belt at high rpm that did bent valves......
