powersteering works fine when driving, but sitting still at idle it goes away. Does not make any noise and is full with fluid. Seems to work fine as soon as RPM's get above idle. Please help

Thanks

Of the pump itself. Or it could actuall be the pump itself has failed internally and it will only work if the rpm's are raised i.i while driving. If you rev the engine while stopped and turn the wheel, does you power steering work? It's all about pressure you know, the faster it spins, the more pressure, to a point.

Maybe this will help get you started.

Ever replace the rack and pinion steering gear before? Aftermarket or Ford unit if you have replaced?
