Question about 2004 Lincoln Aviator

1 Answer

Well, the reservior is normal. I added a little, but the sound is still there. If the pump is good, then I should see the fluid flowing in the reservior, but I don't. Does that mean it needs replacing, and is that a hard job?

    I check the levels in my pump and added a little and it seemed ok, but the fluid inside of the power steering reservior is not moving, and I still hear that whining noise. Does that mean the pump is bad?, and if so, how much does it cost to replace?

    Thanks..I found that out the hard way. That was the problem. I wish I saw your answer before the pulley seized up, but i got it replaced without going to the dealer.

Power steering pump noise


  • Did you cap the system when you disconnected, and what type of fluid did you use. Several things would make this happen 1. You overfilled the reservoir when you replaced it with the hose 2. Air became trapped in the steering system upon replacement 3. Bad steering pump is not pulling fluid from the reservoir, but pushing fluid into the reservoir when you turn. I would say there is air in the system since you opened the system to make a repair. Either one of these problems can damage other components, so I hope you get this fixed sooner than later. Good luck!

Window fluid


Probably not since there is so little alcohol in the washer fluid. Usually a little soap and some alcohol with water is all that is in the washer fluid. If it were me though I would drain and refill the system. There could be a reaction that breaks down the coolant. On German cars I have seen the coolant turn to a gel when you mix types of coolant. Best to be safe even though I believe there is little chance of a problem

1995 saturn My windshield washer doesn't squirt fluid. Which fuse should I check? What else should I look at?


This reply falls under, " what else should I look at."

When you press to squirt, do you hear any sound? if you do there are 3 easy things you can do.

1. Some of the windshield wiper reserviors, ( plastic bottles ), need a minimumlevel of fluid to operate, so, make sure you fill up your reservior.

If that doesn't help;
2. There is a very small hose that runs from the reservior to the pump, pull it off of the pump end, very carefully, and have someone hit the squirter.

If fluid comes through the hose;
3. Take a very small paper clip, straighten one end out, and push it into the ports that the water shoots out of to squirt the windshield.
Sometimes wax or debree can clogg these very little holes.

Power steering pump


Whining may be normal.
Pulling fluid from reservoir may be normal.
But I would not expect the fluid to go back to the reservior when you stop.
Is it?
If so, you may have some trapped air or something.
Jack the wheels off the ground, and go lock to lock on the steering, several times, to bleed any air out.

Whining noise in engine


Checking the level of the power steering is a good start. The pump is mechanical, driven by the serpentine belt, and cannot be turned off. Your steering may seem normal but if you let it go, low fluid can destroy the pump.

Washer doesn't work and I can't hear the pupmp motor working.


The windshield washer pump is part of the windshield wash reservior.
There is an electrical connector located on the bottom of the reservior.
That is the pump .
If the pump is not in the reservior. I would just trace the washer fluid lines from the sprayer on the vehicle back to the pump. The lines just might lead back to the reservior for the windshield wash solution. Then you will have confirmed the pump is in the reservior.

You may have to get a new reservior. The pump might not be seperate item, I am not 100% sure on that.

I also would double check the fuses and any relays related to the washer pump.

Finally, I would check the washer switch if you replace the pump and still is not working .

Good luck

Air in the power steering fluid reservior


This is actually normal. Your talking about having the cap off with the vehicle running while you look in the reservoir that you pour the fluid into. Correct?

Air in the power steering filter


The power steering fluid will aerate (churn and make bubbles) if the power steering fluid is overfull or underfilled.

If the steering is making a binding sensation, causing excess motor drag, then it's probably low.

Just go to auto parts store and buy their recommended fluid. It's about $3/quart usually. Some auto makers require very specific fluid for their cars, but for a Nissan, it should be somewhat standard.

There should be a dipstick that is marked with the proper fluid level on your power steering pump. It'll be marked HOT and COLD, which of course corresponds with when you're checking the fluid. If you haven't driven the car and it's morning time, check the level with COLD. If the car has been driven and is warmed up, then check it against HOT.
