Ah, the fine Windstar!! Have two of them myself. Just took one off the road and did the head gaskets on the other. Started her up and was the Power Steering was noisy. It had been sitting awhile, not quite a year and I don't remember it that noisy. Its not too bad straight driving but turning those wheels lets everyone know who you are! I'm going to find out for myself if the pump can be rebuilt or have to get another one.
