g.mornin' Judge. I have. It happened to my Lincoln, and it was also leaking from the deal they have on the Lincoln the is some sort of restrictor to prevent over~steering at high speeds..that car had such a powerful one~ finger~ turn the~wheel if you whipped the steering wheel at 70 just a tad too much, it would steer you right in to the ditch, they put a thing on to prevent that the fluid went through that before the steering pinion . Next case.
