Normally what it is its not the power steering reservour itself but the hose has gone bad fill it back up with fluid put the cap back on and while the car is running turn the wheel left and right several times and this will get the air out of the system and at the same time help you find the leak

Battery light and abs light on hard to steer overheating


sounds like you either lost your fan belt, or you have a seized up alternator, or belt tensioner. The fan belt [ drive belt ] turns the alternator to charge the battery, the power steering pump to make easy steering , and the water pump cooling your engine. Do you smell rubber burning? hear a squealing noise? or rattling noise. Open your engine bonnet, start the car up, and look at the drive belt and pulleys. They should all be turning. If this is the problem you will see something seized up. Also if you have let the power steering pump run out of oil, it may also be seized. Good luck with it

You need to have the alternator checked for proper output and go from there. You may have flood it with water and that caused damage to it.

I have a Ford 500 and my power steering makes a creaking noise when I turn either way,my fluid is normal and I noticed a burn smell when I cut the car off...what could it be..


anything from a slipping belt to a pressure pipe leaking ,even dry steering joints ,try putting some engine oil on top of the mc pherson strut ,under the bonnet and where the 3 bolts are in the middle is a bearing underneath and if it has plastic cover on top lift this out and introduce a few squirts of engine oil ,not that fish oil spray and leave the oil to soak down and this will lubricate the bearing .Other than that i have no idea without my head under the bonnet iam afraid .
