1993 Taurus GL 3.0L V6 Power steering

Hi all,

I need to replace the steering pump as it is leaking (i have to add 40cc of fluids every several days and after cleaning the pump bottoms it gets wet again) and also the engine's mounts - there is one in the front which mine is completely broken, i saw another one in the left side and another one close to the firewall - are they all the same?
can anyone recommend a place where i can buy these parts ? i am looking for genuine parts and not some cheap Chinese replica.

Thanks !

The mounts are all different. Check RockAuto for all of the parts. The mounts are about all you'll find. I used the hydraulic ones and they worked good. The dealerships sell the original mounts for around $100 each or more.

Hi R.S.Logan,

Thanks for your reply.

Because in my country they consider this model as too old and not worthy of importing original parts.

So i must import myself.

RockAuto has rebuilt OEM. There are some online Ford dealers that sell and add shipping. Here are a few.

Most of the times the bearings and vanes wear out not much later and it needs another repair.

Could you not get the parts easier from here in the UK or from another EU country , possibly cheaper and faster ?

Re: 1993 Taurus GL 3.0L V6 Power steering

ok, i think i have found the fault the pump had - two dried o-rings on the high pressure nipple. i have found that the nipple's bottom was always wet with oil so i took it all apart, replaced the dried o-rings and also the copper spacer the was there. currently it stay dry but i will check again tomorrow and see if anything changes and post again.

heres some pics of the nipple with the bad o-rings.
