    Sorry, Terrence, but your 89 Crown Vic is not a SHO so we are not experts on that vehicle.

    Somewhere between your steering wheel and the front wheels, something has gotten disconnected - the steering shaft, the rack, the tie rods, etc. That is not possible to diagnose over the internet, so it is literally impossible to tell you what it costs to fix.

    Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately, I have no idea what the crown vic shares in common with the Taurus, however I'd check the linkage and make sure that is moving. Since you were out of fluid in your reservoir, you probably blew a seal on the rack.
