Having problems with your 2006 Ford Explorer ?
I've got a 2006 Ford Explorer that's leaking small amounts of a reddish liquid directly behind the front passenger tire. Could this be power steering fluid and what could cause this. It has 65,000 miles on it.
Considering the location, this is most likely a transmission cooling line that it leaking. You should have it checked soon before you need to call a towtruck. Thank you, Dana
First check the level of power steering fluid, if its down then that's your problem. If it is low then get it on a ramp while someone turns the wheel and watch for drips.(Like a leaky house pipe liquid can run a long way from where the actual leak is so you need a good eye and a lamp).The pipes tend to rub against engine wearing it over time. You may have to turn the engine on a couple of times to build the pressure up, but i don't recommend running while your under there.
