There's always Lucas power steering stop leak, but personally I'd prefer to fix leak properly.

Leaking out have to fill dailypower steering fluid


The seals are worn in the cylinder. Cheapest solution is to find one at a salvage yard and replace as to rebuild would be costly. I used to be a hydraulics journeyman and power steering works on the same principles.

Steering wheel is hard to turn...is that power steering fluid? Is there a specific kind for 2001 Zx2?


Does your car make a groaning noise when you turn the wheel? It could be a few different things. The first thing you want to do is check your power steering fluid. If it's low, top it off and see if that helped. It just takes a standard power steering fluid, nothing specific.

If the power steering fluid was low and that fixed the problem, you need to ask yourself the question - Why was the fluid low? There's probably a leak somewhere that needs to be fixed.

If the power steering fluid wasn't low, then there's a couple other things it could be. If the car makes a groaning noise when you turn the wheel, chances are that you have a bad power steering pump. If there's no noise and you just don't have any power steering at all then it could be a bad pump or a bad power steering rack.

Hopefully this helps you figure it out. Good Luck!

Cannot find belt tensioner on 2001 ford escort


  • Locate the serpentine belt tensioner on the front of the engine. The belt tensioner on the 2001 Ford Escort is located directly under the power steering pump and above the air conditioner pump. The belt tensioner has a 17 mm bolt head in the center of the pulley.

    98 escort key stuck in ignition


    http://i48.tinypic.com/2qatvz8.jpg

    a EAST fix, I removed the plastic around the steering wheel (3 bolts under the steering wheel) and I manually pulled the lever toward you to remove the key. THEN I used a zip tie to hold it back so my key can come out from now on... saved you $300 for a new tumbler

    EASY fix and cost $.05cents.

    This was done on my 2001 ford escort and it should work with other fords, like the focus model.
