#451 of 527 Is it better to change the seal or replace the Rack And Pinion Unit
Jul 31, 2006 (8:46 am)
I thought I saw a reply to my Questions regarding : FORD AEROSTAR 1993 3.0L, 6CYL, but now I can't seem to locate it. Someone please help get me back on track with how to locate responses to our questions.
Question put a little differently: Pwr Str Fluid leaks where the steering column and the rack and pinion are are connected by a bolt. The fluid leaks out from between the Shaft and the seal.
Big Question: Do I replace the seal or do I have to replace the Rack & Pinion Unit itself. I'm sure I can do the project I just need a little guidance.
Thanks in Advance for any advice of any kind.

My 91 ford aerostar awd van is having big problems. My van started to clunk, it felt just like I had a flat tire. At first it was when I would turn the wheels, now it is all the time. It mostly happens when you accelerate. We have already changed the front cv joints, but it did not help. What could it be? Has anyone else had problems like this, also at the stores, we can only buy a repair manual for 2wd models. Does anyone know where I can get one for my awd or are there even one for it? Please anyone help.

#455 of 527 Re: 96 Aerostar XLT 4.0L Ext--Howling intake noise! [hawk54]

I have the same problem. It occurs even without the AC on but it does generally happen when the engine is hot and at low RPM (idle). Tried cleaning the Mass Airflow Detector wire with no luck. Took the intake off to bypass the filter, Mass Airflow Detector, and the entire plastic air intake hose. Still had the whine until the engine stalled (apparently if the Mass Airflow Detector is bypased the engine will not run). Any thoughts would be apprecaited because thie is very loud and annoying. Still runs great other than noise. 97 Aerostar 4.0L w/93k mlies.
