Question about 2000 Ford Focus
Hard to steer and noisy,fluid low. Added fluid (more than once), but it keeps going down. Can't see any visible leakage.
It could be leaking inside the dust boot on the steering rack. if thats it ...it will eventually start leaking from the boots after they fill up. You could have a small leak from one of the lines. Good Luck

you have a power steering leak, when in full lock position the power steering pump is actually sucking in air and this is your noise. you will have to locate the leak and replace the leaking part and fill it to proper level.Ford will accept trans fluid for power steering fluid.

check fluid level and turn wheel side to side if you look at the resovoir you will see the fluid bubbling. easier to do this with front wheeels off floor.

the grinding noise you hear is the pump out of fluid you need to find and repair the leak then check the pump it may be u/s if no oil in it and it has been run
