Rent a pulley puller and installer kit from your local auto parts store, get replacement fluid also. I suggest removing the fan and shroud for much easier acess. disconnect pressure hose(dont remove the big pressure fitting,just the line itself). Disconnect bottom return hose,simple hose clamps. Remove pulley with the puller kit, they have simple instructions in kit. This gives yoy acess to three mounting bolts on the pump itself. remove those, pump should come right out,have to turn and wiggle a bit, but, it will come out. Place new pump in bracket, holding in place with one hand, start the 3 mounting bolts in mounting holes in new pump. tighten the to secure pump in place. reconnect pressure line tight,if you see a drip ,snug it up a little at a time until no drip.start car, turn wheels a couple of times,left and right,turn off and add fluid as necessary. you should be ready to drive.

We had to replace the rack and pinion in our 2005 T&C. The only symptom we had was the power steering fluid was leaking.
It does not have a power steering filter.
On the back of the power steering pump.
The power steering system uses ATF (auto trans fluid)
The power steering pump is on the top, rear, passenger side of the engine.
The power steering reservoir is on the top of the engine, centered under the hood.
It is important to know what type of steering fluid to put in their car. A 2001 Chrysler Town and Country will use ATF+4 fluid for power steering fluid.
Do I need a special tool to remove the steering pump of 2003 Lincoln town car
It is important to know how to add fluids to a car. Power Steering fluid is added to the container under the hood, that is capped with a yellow lid that says "Power Steering".
most likely low power steering fluid level or the level was low and took out the pump.
A 2000 Lincoln Town Car doesn't have a rack and pinion steering.
It does not have a drain plug.
Remove the oil pan and there it is...
There is only one belt on a 1999 Chrysler Town and Country.

rebuild or replace gearbox.
in front of the motor on right with screwtop
Auto trans fluid.
My pcv valve on the 3.8 motor appears to be on the drivers side under the power steering resevore next to the coil pack. How do you get the power steering reservore out.
Top of engine, far passenger side.
ARE YOU SURE YOU HAVE TO CHANGE THE PITMAN ARM? MAYBE YOU MEAN THE IDLER ARM? THE PITMAN ARM IS RALREY EVER CHANGED. THIS IS THE ARM THAT CONNECTS THE STEERING LINKAGE TO THE POWER STEERING BOX. ITS AT THE BASE OF THE STEERING BOX , UNDER THE CAR, IT PROTRUDES FROM THE STEERING BOX SHAFT CONNECTING SAME TO THE CENTER LINK.
You can, but ATF, automatic transmission fluid, is recommended.
The steering wheel is mounted on the steering column.
