We'll here we go again. A few years ago I had the rack & pinion
replaced along with all the hoses, but the noise was still there. I
never was able to learn what was causing it so I just turned the radio
up and got along. Now when I pull out of the driveway and turn the

bad. This time there's no leaking fluid - level stays the same for
Any idea on causes for this - and better - what would cure this godawful

If this is the Aerostar again, I suggest you take your cellphone, and a

Use the screwdriver to remove the plates, and the cell phone to call

You didn't change the pump when you changed the rack. Wear products

The RIGHT thing to do would be to replace the rack,p, and all hoses to
be sure everything is in top shape and a bad rack won't take out your
