Cold weather makes the engine hard to start for two main reasons. First, oil thickens when it's cold, which increases friction and makes it harder for the staner motor to spin the engine. ... You can ensure that your car will start in the worst weather by keeping the engine or the battery, or both, warm.

2006 ford focus power steering whine and foming


I have a 06 SES ZX4, same foaming and whining, burped fluid out the cap, progressively worsening in the cold weather. After reading several blogs, found the Ford TSB 08-18-9, and looked at my reservoir O-rings. The outboard ring looked bad, inboard was visibly OK. Replaced both, fixed my problem (Oreilly Auto Parts). Another blogger said he found a filter in his reservoir, mine did not have one. Also, fluid is dark, will be flushing very soon. Car has 130K miles.
