Ford has a power steering fluid, but most of the time Mercon-V ATF (mercon five), is used.

My power steering fluid comes back out on 2002 Ford Taurus I just put a new belt on it


Darlene, did you by chance overfill the power steering reservoir or was there any other steering work done recently. Could be air in the system, a bad pump, pinched/collapsed hose, etc. You may have to have a good Tech. diagnose and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I have a leak coming from the under the right side of my car and i am constantly putting power steering fluid and the low brake fliud light came on 2006 ford taurus


you have a power steering leak either the pump itself or one of the power steering hoses has a hole in it.the low brake fluid light is probably the fluid sensor in the master cylinder providing the fluid level is not low.the sensors tend to stick and need to be tapped or pushed with your finger until it frees itself.

Rack and pinion went out on my 1997 ford taurus need to remove it


will need jack stands and a tie rod pickle fork. jack car up and support it securely and remove front tires. unhook tie rods get a pan to catch power steering fluid and unhook the power steering lines.. recommend tubing wrenches for this .once lines are loose you will have to unhook the steering wheel shaft and then loosen the mounting bolts holding the steering rack to car.. recommend you have help as you lower it.

Power steering problems with 1997 ford taurus


What! Not likely the pump, if it has fluid. Most likely the steering rack is shot. Have a reman installed and flush the cooler or the new one will fail. Install a FILTRON magnetic filter, in the return line also. Use Mercon or Mercon V Fluid,not auto part store **** and never any sealers. If you want ,you could make up a blend of Lubegard and Mec V. I do all the above,If it isn't like a new car after all that,check out the ball joints , but especially the bearing assy on top of the struts. They could be half your stiffness. What causes these steering racks to fail ,is because, no one changes the fluid every couple years,just like you never flush brake fluid or trans fluid. I made a living in the trans business ,just on Taurus and Chrysler Caravans, for that very reason. Don't you just love neglect?

1996 Ford Taurus just developed a power steering pump noise.


Make sure it is full of power steering fluid. Fords use generic power steering fluid you can buy at any parts store.Or you can try a power steering additive like Lucus and it may help as a last resort to replacing the pump .
