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.

How much will it cost to replace a 2008 ford escape power stearing pump


HAS COLD AND HOT FLUID LEVEL. IF WAS LOW THERE IS A LEAK/SEEP. CHECK STEERING RACK BELLOWS IF WET/DAMP
REMOVE CLAMP AND PUSH BELLOW BACK, IF FLUID IS PRESENT THE STEERING GEAR IS LEAKING.

DANGER ! DO NOT DRIVE IT !!!!

cause by:
1: breach in system, see DOT3/4 fluid on pavement or on fire wall
next to MC? front and Rear !!! on inside of tire walls?
2: MC end of lie.
got ABS , you did not say.
my guess, not , it started in 1996, but some cars 91.(have one)

3: air in the system. end to end.
usually caused by removing parts, and not bleeding system

MC = master cyclinder the pedal connects to.

no no no and no...do not use brake fluid in the steering, this will eat away the seals and blow the system no way should brake fluid be used, you use auto transmission fluid or correct stearing fluid normally dexron2 but no brake fluid...hope this helps

Loss of power stearing and fluid


Basic visual troubleshooting is going to be required. If the fluid falls to the ground with the engine off, then the fluid reservior is the first suspect along with the return hose. If you only have this during engine on, the supply or pressure hose would be suspect. ARE all hoses and fitting installed and tight?

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.
