I have a 96 Taurus with the 24 Valve Duratec Engine and had to replace the water pump. In the midst of replacing that water pump I decided to replace the power steering pump also since it was making noise.

I installed the pumps and upon starting the car had power steering fluid squirting out the return line that enters the left hand side of the pump (or rear) It came with a white nylon washer that you had to heat up in water and stretch to fit over the flare nut threads. I thought I must have messed that up so I pulled the pump out and bought another washer. After reinstalling the pump I am still getting the leak from the hard line. Leaks out from the rear of the flarenut where the line goes through it. Any ideas? I am totally frustrated at this point.:angry:

Thank you!
