Question about 2001 Ford Escape
1) Weather conditions are minus 20ish C 2) When i start my ford in cold weather is leaks power steering fluid from the undercarriage. 3) Does not leak fluid once engine is warm 4) Had it checked at mechanic last winter, cause the same thing happened, and they could not fix or find the issue. 5) If facing the ford engine it leaks approx a foot in and to the left. You can see the fluid running underneath on start up. 6) When i add more fluid it does not leak or leak on engine starts when warm. Any idea why the fluid would only leak on a cold engine start or suggestions on what the issue could be. Been doing it again now for four days.

Sounds like you need a new power steering hose. To verify this, I would dry up any wet areas on the hose and pump with a towel, get a flashlight and start the vehicle and try to determine the exact site of the leak which is usually at the ends of the hoses. Good luck!
