Question about 1989 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

I have a 1989 mustang lx 5.0, problem is put a new power steering pump on and rack and pinion, filled the tank on the pump and turned the wheels to bleed the system but now when the car is running and warmed up the fluid is low I add more. When the car is off the fluid comes out the top of the tank. What to do?

The fluid will show low when running because its circulating thru the system. Check it when its not running and cold, just like you would on the engine oil, you also might have to much in it is why its blowing out.

I put on a new power steering pump and now it seems like the lines have air in them and there is lots of bubbles in the reservoir and it makes a louder noise when you turn the steering wheel.


You just need to purge the air out. Shut it off, top up reservoir, if possible raise front wheels. If not let fluid settle, turn wheel from side to side as much as possible. Start engine and turn from stop to stop 4-5 times. It will eventually subside and purge the air. Just make sure the pump doesn't run low on fluid.

Hello, I got a 89 mustang LX and the steering is very unresponsive. It has several inches of free play in the wheel before I get a response, I already checked power steering fluid and it is fine. -Cheers


This is more of a suggestion than an answer. You need to check on your steering column under the hood. Start your car an have someone turn steering wheel back and forth. Look at the steering knuckle at the end of your column. I am currently having the same issue, my steering wheel has alot of play to it and the knuckle is worn out. Im not sure if steering knuckle is the correct name but its the joint that connects your steering column to your rack an pinion i believe.

Power steering noise on turning; noticed no power


Check the ends of your rack & pinion for signs of a leak. If a leak is present, replace the rack & pinion. If no leaks, maybe your power steering pump is going out.

Power steering does not work turning right. what


Hi Ben,

Air in the line. Be sure the steering fluid level is up to the fill line.

Turn the wheel to the stops both ways a couple times.

Check the level again.

Repeat until the level remains static,

Best regards
Mike

I have a 97 taurs with a steering problem. It makes a humming noise that gets louder the faster I go. It pulls to the right, an when I go around a left corner it feels like it just doesn't want to turn...


check to see if you have power steering fluid. if your low fill it up. (most cases thats all it is) check around for any leaks or parts to the power steering unit for and damage (hoses, pump, rer, rack and pinion, any seals or such. you might have a leak somewhere. when your looking for leaks fill the res up with power steering fluid. turn the car on. and have someone turn the wheel so get the fluid to build up pressure in the system.

Power steering - wheel feels like it pulls


check your balljoints. jack up the wheel and try to move it side to side and in and out. if it moves more than a minimal amount your ball joints could be bad and you will need to takeit in and they can let you know how close the are to breaking.

Problem with steering wheel


Stay in the Car! LOL you have a problem with your power steering system. 1st Check your fluid level. 2nd check the belt. If you discover everything is ok, replace the power steering pump. That should fix it, however, if you still experience a problem, it will be in your rack and pinion. If you replace the rack and pinion you would want to change the pump anyway so no harm done. Good luck

Steering wheel hard to turn


Either the power steering pump is going bad, or the rack and pinion is going bad.

Power steering


Support front wheels off ground. Chock rear tires, get an assistant for safty. Start engine (do not put in gear) step outside of car and manually turn wheels left and right by hand. Cut off engine. Turn key back to release steering lock. Manually turn wheels by hand again. If it requires the same ammount of strength to turn wheels, then Rack and Pinion is bypassing internally. Solution... replace rack & pinion.
