How to remove a power steering pressure hose on a 1999 Mercury Sable


You have to discon the battery cable before you start. Remove the coolant expansion tank. Remove the drivebelt and alternator if you have an OHV V6. Raise the vehicle on jack stands. Place a drain pan below the pump. From below, remove the splash shield and discon any brackets or ties that hold the hose to the body. After draining, you may have to replace the pwr steering fluid filter, located in the fluid line, then replace the fluid. A crows-foot wrench may be necessary to remove some hose fittings. This is a job for a mechanic with a power lift to be honest. Whatever you do, be careful not to contaminate the power steering fluid. Bleed the system after replacing the hose. The pressure hose is held in place by threads and not a clamp as the other hose has. Get yourself the Haynes repair manual 36075 '96 thru 2005 Ford Taurus & Merc Sable. It has a detailed step by step description of this procedure. Good Luck

Ihave a car ford taurus year 1999 my problem is the power steering pump if ishot down the engine the fluid will come out wiht alot of preasure on the reservoir even though it was ina correct level, th


when filling the power steering pump, add enough fluid that you can see it inside the pump down low. turn the tires all the way to the left then to the right. then straighten the tires. this allows the fluid to go in to the system. add more fluid and check with the power steering cap level gauge. if the engine has warmed up add fluid to the hot level on the power steering cap gauge. do not overfill.

Power steering fluid is spraying hard out of the resivior cap


Sounds like they put the power steering lines back on in the wrong order.
there is a chack valve in the rack that allows the fluid to flow one way only... this valve has been bypassed by either putting the lines on in reverse , or it may have fallen out if they dislocated the lines at the rack... either way it is VERY DANGEROUS to opperate this vehicle in the present condition... the steering can suddenly shift to one dirrection and tear the wheel out of your grasp.

Fuel preasure control fault code P1112 on a 2001 Ford Taurus LX. Idle goes up to 2,000 RPM. When the car is in drive the car goes to almost 4,000 RPM with out touching the pedel.


Have a fuel pressure test done on it to find the problem.
If the pressure is low, the fuel pump is weak
If it's high, the fuel pressure regulator is faulty.

Power steering fluid leaking pretty good on 2005 chevy impala. not from pressure line ithink. any clues


The power steering pump is belt driven. It is on the engine where you put fluid in. There are two lines that run from the power steering pump to the power steering rack on the firewall. The fluid can leak from the pump, either of the lines or the rack itself. If you are handy you may be able to repair the problem by replacing the bad part. Wear safety glasses when looking for the leak and do not touch the fluid leak when the engine is running. The pressure is high enough to hurt you. If you ignore the problem you will eventually loose the power assist and may be unable to steer the car. Fix it now!








One line is high pressure and the other is a return line. Check them with the engine off and when you think you've found the leak staret the car and look for the leak. If it sprays like a water hose DO NOT TOUCH THE LEAK. The pressure is high enough to cause serious injury.

My 1995 Taurus is losing a substantial amount of power steering fluid regularly. The leak appears to be coming directly from the unit/resevoir. There appears to be two lines. How can I narrow fdown where...


If there are 2 lines only one will be "high pressure" that one most likely is the leak. Try to clean it off where you think its leaking, with "brake cleaner", have someone turn the steering wheel all the way to one side and hold it there, that makes the pressure high and the leak should be obvious.

I have a 2003 dodge durango that is leaking power string fluid


They do make power steering leak stopper although I have never had much success with it. I don't quite understand what you mean coolant lines for power steering because that I know of on your vehicle I don't believe there is a cooler for your power steering.
