Power steering My sister used my car to go on a trip. She checked all the fluids on a pittstop but did not replace the power steering cap. It did not seem to run completely out but got hard to steer after I filled up the tank. I have had no luck getting a new cap or even used so i made a makeshift one for now. Not losing any fluid but still hard to turn the wheel when stopped or going slow. is there a bleed vavle somewhere that i can not see or is the pump shot. and If air did get into it how mu

JUST IN THE LAST FEW DAYS, I HAVE A SMALL FLUID LEAK UNDER MY 2003 FORD TAURUS SES. I REFILLED THE RESERVOIR FOR THE POWER STEERING AFTER HEARING THE POWER STEERING WHINING. A WEEK LATER I NOTICED A LITTLE FLUID HAD BEEN USED, BUT MORE THAN NORMAL. COULD MY LEAK BE FROM THE POWER STEERING AND IF SO, WHERE SHOULD I LOOK TO REPAIR IT?. SUBSEQUENT TO THE LEAK, I HAD BRAKE VIBRATION FROM THE FRONT PASSENGER SIDE.

I need to replace the o-ring that prevents power steering fluid from escaping from the power steering pressure hose of a 2003 ford windstar. When you change the power steering pump, as you take the hose out from the old pump a new o-ring must be installed because the old one will not be useful again. I'm trying to buy the o-ring but i no one knows where or how to get it. This o-ring goes into the power steering pressure hose, which goes into the power steering pump.

Regarding my 1993 Honda Accord, thanks to FixYa I am disconnecting the battery when not in use, since no one can find the slow leak in the car. Yesterday I went to an auto supply store and the clerk put in power steering fluid, filling it to the brim. When I got home, there was a lot of fluid on some engine parts under the hood and the power steering container looked like at least two thirds of a cup of fluid was gone. What is my best solution to this? I have not had luck with mechanics in

I have a 1979 Ford Fairmont with a pinhole leak in the power steering line. When I put Prestone power steering fluid with stop leak in, it held for 4 months. Unfortunately, the pinhole must have become to large because it has now resumed leaking. Aside from replacing the metal line, is there a product that I can use to cover the line on the outside that will stop the leak?
None will be permanent, eventually the line will fracture and you will end up with a destroyed pump and who knows else. Replace the pipe, it will be cheaper in the end.\012\012\012If you still want to "fix" it then you can do that: empty ... 1983 Ford Fairmont
