Steering pump replaced twice this month. Gone out again.help


Elaine,
1. Heat oxidizes power steering fluid, causes pump failure. Unlikely to overheat this time of year but there could be a restriction on pressure side of system causing it to overheat.
2. Many mechanics use "power steering fluid". Some systems require specialty fluids, Mitsubishi and VW come to mind. Google the type of car you have and power steering fluid and see what it comes up with. If wrong fluid has been used make sure it is flushed out and new fluid is added.
3. Chinese parts and or bad installaitons. It happens.
Hope this helps.

this is some information on the braking Fluid

Fluid

Damaged parts and a buildup of heat can break down the hydraulic fluid that is in the caliper, brake lines, and master cylinder. The fluid, DOT-3 for the Sebring, will go from a golden-yellow color to a dark brown or black when the particles are damaged from heat. A complete purge of the braking system is required, to replace all of the fluid. Usually, the caliper pistons are at fault, as the pads heat up they come closest to the fluid at the piston. This "cooks" the fluid, and as it is retracted back into the system (as it cools or the brakes are released), it causes the heat to travel into sensitive areas of the system. The seals in the master cylinder and power booster are prone to damage from heat. The fluid will lose its ability to maintain pressure, as it introduces air into the system and compresses.
the other smell could carbon oil that has leaked out of the cam cover seal this would not affect the oil level. but it will start to burn oil if the seal is not replaced. it could also be an antifreeze smell you could have a small leak and when pressure is built up it self seals under pressure, This could be the gasket on the thermostat housing or heat line. check these parts.

Your fluid in the unit is too heavy and will act this way until it's warm enough to start flowing thru the pump. Heat from the engine is apparently what is warming the fluid enough to make it work after it warms up. Have the fluid changed to a much lighter fluid in the pump reservoir.

2005 ford focus windshield washer not working. It was working then I filled it up with fluid and now it won't work. Wipers work but no fluid.


If it is cold in your area, the fluid may have frozen in the lines and or tank. Be sure you use fluid suitable for the weather conditions. If the tank is frozen - the heat from the engine may thaw it but the lines going to your wind shield may be exposed too much to the exterior to thaw from engine heat and will have to be cleared by an external heat source. A hair dryer may work - be careful of painted surfaces if you do use a heat gun or hair dryer. Hope this helps. Let me know. Thanks

There's a bleed screw located at the bottom of the radiator. Open screw let fluid run out of radiator. Fill radiator with water run vehicle. Repeat above steps until fluid is clear. Use a coolant system flush. Refill system with appropriate amount of coolant and water.

could be a vacuumn device in the heater system itself, or a thermostadt problem just above the water pump, unless you have more than minium experience with repairing autos, take it to a good mechanic, should be less than $100 fix.

The driver's side washer fluid is frozen


If you are using the "anti-freeze" type washer fluid, freezing should not be an issue anyway. You say that heating does not help, my guess is that your problem is a blockage rather than a freezing issue. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

Can low steering fluid cause mechanical problems


Problems associated with low power steering fluid…

Hard Vehicle Steering
A low power steering fluid level can often times cause a vehicle's steering to become hard and labored. Adequate amounts of power steering fluid are necessary to enable a vehicle's power steering system to function and operate at optimum levels. A lack of power steering fluid in a vehicle's power steering system reduces the amount of hydraulic fluid pressure necessary to efficiently operating the various parts of the entire power steering system. Power steering fluid supplies the fluid force needed to operate the power steering gears and to enable power steering gearbox operation. Low power steering fluid levels reduce this hydraulic pressure, which commonly results in hard vehicle steering.

Pump Noise
It is very common for a low power steering fluid level to cause significant power steering pump noise. An adequate amount of power steering fluid is required to ensure the proper function and longevity of a power steering pump unit, which is a belt-driven pump responsible for housing and circulating power steering pump fluid. A low level of power steering fluid results in increased power steering pump friction, heat, and wear, all of which can significantly reduce the operational life of the power steering pump while at the same time cause excessive power steering pump noise.

Fluid Boiling
Many times a low power steering fluid level can result in excessive heating of power steering fluid, a condition that can seriously degrade the fluid and cause it to boil. A low power steering fluid level results in less available fluid to both lubricate and cool a power steering pump unit. A lack of power steering pump lubrication and cooling leads to excessive heat being generated within the power steering pump unit itself, a condition that translates into the available level of power steering fluid becoming super-heated and degraded. When this happens it is common for the power steering fluid to boil and lose all of its lubricating and heat-reducing capabilities.

Gearbox Wear
The power steering gearbox is a set of gears within a vehicle's power steering system designed to facilitate movement of a vehicle's front wheels. The power steering gearbox is connected to the power steering pump by hydraulic fluid lines that deliver a constant supply of power steering fluid to the power steering gearbox. A low power steering fluid level, especially a chronic and severe low power steering fluid level, can lead to increased friction and wear within the power steering gearbox assembly, a condition that can significantly shorten the operational life of the power steering gearbox and negatively affect its operation
