Question about 1992 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

My power steering! My car stinks! LOL

I have a 92 ford taurus I just got for a steal due to the work needed on it.

My power steering is just plain shot. I put fluid in it and its still empty! I think it leaks out while I drive. Power steering pump?

Also my car stinks! Is it because it is overheating (which it has a tendency to do)? It doesn't actually overheat but its goes a little bit over the normal range and then goes back to the middle fluctuating between the R and the L.

Thees models develop leaks at the back of the engine where the PS lines connect to the steering rack assembly, check ther, they are very expensive and a bitc... to replace. A little over normal is not overheating, I would not be concerned about this.

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
