    1. Does the Power Steering Pump Pulley feel loose?
    It is brown because that is the color it changes to as it gets used and it mixed with whats left.
    2. The connecting line you replaced, was it the high or the low pressure side for the power steering?
    3. Also did you use a new line (If not that's your first problem, you always use a new line)?

    Answer
    1 N0 plenty of fluid coming out of pump
    2 High coming out of pump Fluid blew connection fitting apart replaced "O" ring for connection out of power stering Nothing wrong with line.

    Very good solution But I was not going to pay Ford $110.00 for it. I took copper tubing,cut it and turned it down on my lathe and inserted it into the fitting. no more leaks.I am old school ----if I can make it -----I will save money and get the job done. Thanks for your solution. George

    If it is blowing the fitting apart, then you do need to replace the line because you need a new fitting, and the fitting comes on the line. The fitting is no good anymore and can't hold up to the pressure which is why you will continue to have this problem until you replace it.

89 Ford E350 Diesel - two problems 1) no power to instrument cluster, 2) diesel will not fire off without starter fluid...but the glow plug solenoid does click and wait light goes off


You should never use starter fluid when the glow plugs are hooked up. It can cause severe engine damage. You probably need to replace all the glow plugs and the glow plug controller.

I am using a company van, a 2006 e-350 super duty ford van and the brakes are very stiff. Do they have a fuse for the braking system and, if so, which location would it be in?


The brake booster is a vacuum operated mechanism that is obviously failing on your van. It's the big round device that your master cylinder and bolted to (mastyer cylinder is directly under the brake fluid reseviour). Check the vacuum lines for leaks. If not, most times the master cylinder has been bad and leaking fluid into the booster which will damage it.

1994 Ford F 350 4X4 Diesel. Brake pedal goes to


You need to crawl under the truck and inspect each brake line for leaks. You also need to check wheel cylinders and calipers. The chances are pretty good that you will find a small leak in a line or a wheel cylinder leaking, pay close attention to the rear of the truck because that is normally where these problems occur. Hope this helps.

Brake line leak, between frame and fuel tank


You should be able to re-route a new section of line w/out any trouble. If the line is leaking due to rust, you might want to replace all the lines at once, since the rest of the system is probably rusting away also. If you plan on keeping the truck for a while, all the more reason to replace it all. I must add, I hate those rusting brake lines! Did mine over 2 times on y 90 F-250, salt and snow plowing do a number on them.

1992 ford f150 transmission leak on top out of small valve any opinions


more than likely your torque converter. best way to find out is to clean everything off, let me say this so there is no confusion. CLEAN EVERTHING OFF! get some carborator cleaner or something like it ie break cleaner and really clean everthing. get it all new looking. then you can look for blown out seals at the same time. Once it is clean and you don't see any leaks just wait. You may need to put some papers under the car and wait to see where the leak is coming from. Also, if you havent done this make sure the transmission is full, make sure the leak is made up of red fluid. Also no Fords use Transmission fluid in the Power Steering. Check all of this out also. If it uses transmission fluid, check your rack and pinion to see if it is leaking. Fords as much as I love them are famous for blowing rack and pinion, and power stearing lines.

hope this helps.

1997 Ford F-350 7.3 L Diesel..........brake failure


With no leaks and a little braking action returning by pumping the pedal I would suggest looking into a master cylinder. Low brake fluid level in the master cylinder will cause the brake warning light to illuminate (possibly, also the ABS light).

If the truck has the 7.3L diesel, it will have a vacuum pump which supplies vacuum for all vacuum accessories. I believe if the vacuum level drops below 10 in. of Hg, the brake light will illuminate. If the vacuum pump fails you'll know it as the brake pedal will require quite a bit of effort to effect any braking effort.
