SOURCE: power steering fluid leaks

if you take and pressure wash the motor capartment out at a car wash and then have a friend turn your steering wheel back and forth while you look ant the hoses you should see if the hoses have a small leak now never use your hand to check for a leak becuse the power steering systme is a hydralic system and if there is a pin hole and your hand is there the fluid can actually pierce the skin and rip off flesh but you should be able to see the leak just dont grab the hoses while the car is running.
hope this is usefull for you. and please rate my solutions
thank you

SOURCE: Noisy Power Steering Pump

I doubt it is the fluid. I would guess more likely that the pump is going bad. If it is making a whining sould all the time or when steering at a stop, the pump is beginning to fail.

If it's the electrical motor type of pump, you must connect to a full scale scanner like Lexia 3 to get it reset.

NO "FIX IN A CAN" WILL PERMANENTLY SOLVE A RACK LEAK! MORE THAN LIKELY...IF EITHER END BOOT IS LEAKING...THEY ARE GENERALLY NOT REBUILT (EXCEPT BY O.E.M. SUPPLIERS). YOU ARE MOST LIKELY GOING TO NEED A NEW OR RE-MANUFACTIURED STEERING RACK.....SORRY!

I would drain your power steering pump, even if I had to take it off and dump the fluid! Yes, you do need to use power steering fluid, but what will get you in the most trouble is if you mix your fluids because then they work against each other.

While some people will use transmission fluid in a power steering pump in an emergency, I always recommend they drain it out and use the proper fluid in the proper place.

i would hazard a guess and say its the electric power steering pump ,best advice is too leave well alone as it will cost a lot of money to put right and its not dangerous or anything just a bit of wear on a valve .

hi Jo,the power steering is powered by the fanbelt and if its slipping will cause it to go heavy but a light would come up on the dash to tell you the alternator was not charging.so if not the belt,it could be the electrics for the pwr steering need looking into,this is easier to get on the dealers diagnostic computer which will show up the exact fault.and would save any guesswork.

I changed the battery on my peugeot 407 and now the power steering is not working?


this is becoming a common fault on the 407 you need to unplug the power leads to the mas motor located under the bonnet on the inner wing (its the plug with only 2 thick wires going to it) and check terminals for corrosion. If they are corroded you will need to replace the terminals. If it still does not work then i am afraid you will need a new pump (not a cheap job to do)



let me know if this helps


cheers big mike

Power steering presure line how to change


Hello, to replace try this :

1. Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise using a ratchet and socket. Then slide the drive belt off the power steering pulley. Let the tensioner pulley carefully return to the original position without snapping back to prevent damage to internal components.


2. Place a drain pan under the vehicle to catch power steering fluid after you remove the two hoses from the steering pump.


3. Detach the pressure hose from the steering pump by loosening the retaining nut with a flare wrench. Let the steering fluid drain into the drain pan.

4. Loosen or slide the clamp off the return line at the steering pump (depending on the type of clamp used on your particular Taurus model). Use a ratchet and socket or a pair of slip joint pliers.Then detach the return line from the pump with your hand and let the steering fluid drain into the drain pan.

5. Unplug the steering pump electrical connector, if your particular model is equipped with it.

6. Remove the power steering pulley from the pump using special tool 211-016 (T69L-10300-B). For more information, see the Resources section below. Make a note of the pulley distance from the steering pump body at the mounting shaft, so that you use the same amount of clearance when you mount the pulley on the new pump.

7. Unfasten the power steering pump mounting bolts using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket and lift the pump off the engine compartment.

Thanks

No Power Steering


Sounds like a belt come off, that drives your alternator & power steering as well.
