SOURCE: how to replace power steering pump on 2002 ford

Take a picture of it before you take it apart so you know where everything goes.
1.Take belt off
2. Unbolt any bracket that the power steering pump is bolted too.( only if you have to unbolt a bracket)
3. Disconnect lines from steering pump
4. After replacing power steering pump fill with Auto. trans fluid.
5. After filling start car and turn wheel left and right a few times this will get the air out of the system and recheck fluid level.

SOURCE: headlight went out in 2003 ford escape i have

you have to remove the whole headlight assembly, then pop off the front cover pull the old bulb out and put the new one in. reverse the process to re-install. there is a small plastic tab on the topfront of the headlight assembly, that is what you need to release to get the clear cover off and get inside.

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Escape leaking red fluid

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!

SOURCE: Ford Escape 2003. Engine suddenly overheat.

Engine over heating can be caused by a number of things. When you say the water pump and radiator appear to be ok I am also guessing that you checked the coolant level to make sure it is normal.

If the level is low then you obviously have a leak. Insufficient coolant circulating will not cool the motor properly because it won't be able to draw enough heat out. If the level is normal then you need to check the thermostat to make sure it is opening properly. To do this, run the motor to temperature and check the top and bottom hoses. They should both be hot and firrm once the thermostat opens meaning the circulation loop is operating properly. If the top is hot and firm and the bottom is cold/soft or collapsed then the thermostat isn't opening.

If the thermostat is operating properly then you ned to look for some other obstruction or cause for coolant loss. Check the head/intake gaskets, hose connections, hoses, over flow tank, radiator fins, radiator side tanks etc..

Good luck.

My 2003 Ford escape power steering wheel got stiff out of nowhere, right after I started having problems with my battery and alternator... help please


You have an electrical problem. Power steering cannot work without power and since you are having battery and alternator problems, you are probably trying to operate the car with a dead battery or faulty electrical system.
Have the electrical system checked by a few different reputable mechanics and get 3 quotes for repairs without sharing the information from one shop to the next.
Make sure you understand the warranty on the work and the cost of labor before you choose a service provider.
Edmunds has some interesting discussions on battery power losses in Ford Escapes around your year.

Power steering fuild over flowing in a 2003 ford escape


I would suggest pressure testing the power steering pump. It has been my experience the p/s pump will cause this problem. Also check to see if there is a filter in the reservoir, and it is not stopped up.

When it gets really cold outside my 2003 Ford Escape has whining from my power steering but if it warms up outside it no longer does this what could the problem be? If the night time temp doesn't drop...


When cold the thickness (viscosity) of the power steering fluid is thicker and thins out as it heats up. You can try flushing the fluid. If that doesnt work the pump will have to be replaced.

Power steering fluid for a ford escape 2003 2.0


AIR IN THE PUMP CAN CAUSE NOISE AND FRICTION DURING TURNING. AN OPTION IS TO ASK YOUR MECHANIC TO BLEED THE POWER STEERING IN ORDER TO REMOVE THE AIR. THIS WILL DEFINITELY SOLVE THE PROBLEM AS LONG AS THE POWER STEERING PUMP IS FUNCTIONING OPTIMALLY

I have a 2003 Ford Escape that is leaking power steering fluid. I replaced the power steering pump and hoses but it is still leaking. It only leaks when the Escape is turned off.


It might be the rack and pinion kit (seals)

I had this problem 2 months ago... replaced the powersteering pump 3 times until I convinced the mechanics to look at the rack and pinion. there they found the leak, especially when I turned the wheel.. They first kept telling me there was air in the lines and it would go away. but that never happened.
