I have a leak on my 2002 Ford Windstar's Power Steering Pump. I have identified the leak is a slow yet steady stream that is coming from the Power Steering Fitting Nut (it's the nut shape object connected to the pump itself that has the metal return line connected directly to it). The Fitting Nut is a pretty rare part that requires me to hit-up a junk yard or somewhere online. However I do not want to replace it just to see there is some sort of seal/gasket right behind the Fitting nut that could have broken and could be causing my leak. Do you know if there is a seal/gasket right behind that fitting nut that could be causing my leak? Or is it something else? NOTE: As long as I keep the pump topped off, it runs just fine, no squeals and no noise. Only once the levels drop does it start to get cranky.
have the same problem?
