1995 Ford Aerostar Q&A
1995 Ford Aerostar Question: Is there any hope for a quiet power steering unit?
I am stiull soliciting expert opinion before I imvest any $$ in a crap shoot..that is..hoping a replacement unit would be any quieteer. My 95' Aerostar XLT 3 door has had a whining P/S unit since I bought it over 2 months and now, 1,500 miles ago, and still steers fine lock to lock with one fingher and no sounds or rough spots. However the P/S pump is a loud whining nuiscance. Can a Ford dealer fix it absolutely? I havew been told it is a gamble to invest in P/S repair for this era Ford and..and so.."just turn up the radio!!" - charlie9292
My bet would be it wouldn't be fixed for sure. Ford's are known for load power steering pumps. You will come out better to go to local auto parts store and buy a good additive for power steering squeeling. I turn my radio up too!!!! - torque wrench
It's not THAT bad with replacement pumps... If you've never tried to replace the pump, that would be the best first move. - DaveJHM
I had the same problem, how ever mine was leaking... I used lucus p/s retore not only solved the leak but it cut the noise in half! - beastmodifyit
