1995 ford ranger manual 4 cyl misfiring after tension pulley and power steering pump replaced


For the misfire I would check to see if any of the plug wires got pulled loose at the plug and at the distributor. As to the file miles per quart guzzle of p/s fluid look for a cracked line or bad seal in the steering box.

Power steering leak


with power-steering it could be one of three problems. 1- power steering pump could be going out ( normally with the pump the car will whine but will not normally leak and still hold fluid) 2- a leak in your power steering lines ( and can normally be resolved with new lines or sometimes you may be able to bypass and clamp the leak on the line) 3- you may have busted the O rings in your powersteering pump and that will actually cause the pump to leak

hint- alot of people will tell you that you may also use transmission fluid for power-steering this is true you can its that same thing as power-steering fluid just a different color (but dont put power-steering fluid in a transmission, but at the same time if you plan on replacing the pump i would use transmission fluid due to it being cheaper but it will cause the O rings in the power-steering pump to go out quicker to cause a worse leak) so i would recommend to locate the leak first before using trans fluid due to if its in a line you wont have to replace the pump but if its already the pump this is the cheapest fix until repaired

I dont know where to put the power steering fluid at. Please help


Hi!!

The Power Steering pump is located in the front of the engine usually on the right side, and is driven by a belt, on top of the pump there is a screw-on cap about 2" in diameter that says POWER STEERING FLUID, integrated on the cap, is the dip stick, make sure not to overfill PS deposit.

Location of the brake fluid input


the brake fluid resivoir is above the master cylinder on the firewall. so on the left side near the windshield. the power steering resivoir is closer to the front end and is distinguished by not being connected to the master cylinder..

What type of power steering fluid & capacity for 1985 ford e350?


On yours, you can use atf but power "steering fluid" works just as well.. steering fluid is used as a specific requirement on later vehicles and if you use it in the 85, you can use the leftover to top off anything you have that is newer. (can't do that with atf)

Where is the power steering container located.


The power steering pump is a CB-series, vane-type positive displacement pump with an integral fluid reservoir. A pressure relief valve limits maximum system pressure, and is located inside the flow control valve in the pump housing; the relief valve is not serviced separately. The power steering pump is driven by the engine via an automatically tensioned drive belt.
Just Fallow the Belt and Look for the ONLY Component that Has A Cap on it

Power steering went out on 1996 ford ranger what is problem?


The problem could be anything from a power steering hose has leaked out all the power steering fluid or the steering rack could be leaking fluid. Has the car made any strange noises when turning the steering wheel? A car that is loosing power steering fluid will at some point lose so much fluid as to make the power steering pump cavitate (starve for fluid) and the pump will make a high pitched noise when it has too little fluid in it. I can't remember if the 1996 ranger had only one belt on the engine or if the power steering has it own seperate belt. The belt being gone would prevent the power steering from working but if you only have one belt the car would also overheat.
