I recently replaced the rack on my '99 Taurus wagon (Duratec). It was a big job but I got through it! A week later, the seal where the shaft comes out of the rack blew! Is there any thing I could have done to cause this or is it a faulty replacment part? Has this happened to anyone or does anyone have any ideas?

One other related question. When taking the original rack out, a small valve fell out of either the pressure port or return port. I questioned a few mechanics on which port it goes into. The only mechanic to have an idea was the Ford mechanic and he said the pressure side. Does anyone have any experience with this valve.

Thanks for any help you can offer. I don't want to do this again!
