1999 Ford Windstar Engine Size unknown Front Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles
When I drive the Windstar when making turns it will make a whining noise. I have added more power steering fluid and the problem goes away for awhile until I will drive a greater distance (20+ miles) and when I return to town the noise returns. I have checked for leaks underneath but cant seem to find any. Is it time to get a new pump or check to see if the high/low pressure clamps/hoses have leaks? Any help is needed. Driving my wife insane.
You can not burn or hide the leak its there you just haven t found it yet
if you are add fluid
you have a leak
if all dry and no leak found
look and check the rack and pinion check the boots at the end if full with P/S fluid
also start van and turn steering to one side all the way and hold it in that position and look for leak
