Replace the line, fill to the fill mark on your dipstick on the cap. Most of the fluid will drain out with the line off.

When turning steering wheel I have squeaking sounds coming from inside rubber boots that cover rods that steer front wheels and the power steering fluid has a burnt smell. ( I don't know the name of these...


This is the steering rack. If it's not leaking fluid out of the bellows more than likely the fluid needs to be changed.
This can be done by removing the 2 lines from the pump that attach to the rack draining the fluid, then reconnect the lines and refill with fresh power steering fluid.
When draining make sure to take the cap/dipstick off of the pump.

If the line from the power steering pump to the rack and pinion is leaking, replace it.

If the rack and pinion is leaking replace it.

If the power steering pump itself is leaking, then replace it.

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.
