A lot of escorts didn`t have power steering until 1993.
You can check under the bonnet.
Look down the drivers side of the engine.
If you see a short drive belt going from the crank pulley to the alternator.
Then it doesn`t have power steering.
Please let me know what you find and I will be able to help.
Good luck

It varied across the range, if you can see a bottle with a steering wheel icon on top then yes, however the older escorts where heavy to steer, i think that it was later on that they started adding power steering.

What could be wrong with the power sterring if it makes a loud noise. after checking poer sterring fluid


The most common problem with noisy power steering (whining noise) is that the power steering pump is defective. If you replace the pump make sure you flush the system with clean PS fluid or it can ruin the new pump.

This is wrong!!!! This will destroy your car. The power sterring fluid say ATF only, putting power sterring in it will destroy the steering.
