Hi:
Most likely , your fluid is leaking from the rack and pinion steering unit. It is not fixible on the car, and not easily rebuilt by a home mechanic. It is common to change the entire unit.

You do need a few special tools to replace a rack and pinion unit, but most auto parts stores will loan them to you, if you buy a part there.

If you don't have a good shop manual for your car, a good choice is to go to www.alldatadiy.com and for about $20, you can get a 1 year subscription to your car, and it is very helpful to me, when I use it.

Testimonial: "Thanks a lot, but I think it is pure abuse that you have to change the whole thing just for a seal kit."

1991 mercury cougar xr7 5.0 wont hold power steering fluid brand new pump and still makes a whining noise


Nope PS system is separate from the Brake and air ride, You will need to clean all the lines off along with the rack&pinion, an overhead lift is needed to check many of the components. look for fresh fluid dripping down, most of the time, if its a pressure leak loads of fluid will leak out draining the reservoir very fast, if the reservoir takes days to drain its probably a suction side leak this would cause air to enter the system and make a continuos whine and cause(low reservoir fluid will allow air to get in the system as well)the liquid to have bubbles and or look foamy. There is a pressure switch in the pressure side that is a common place to leak, I believe its mounted on the Rack itself. Also I have seen people forget to put the teflon seals on the pumps pressure side threaded fitting which will leak immediately after the install. GL

I HAVE A 03 TOWNCAR WITH LEAKING OIL AT THE RIGHT REAR WHEEL. I NEED HELP ON HOW AND WHAT TO CHANGE. ALSO SHOULD I DO BOTH SIDES. THANK YOU JERRY SORRELL 337-842-0485


Leaking oil at the rear wheels can be one of two things, Easy fix is brake fluid, this would be the rear brake wheel cylinder leaking. Check your brake fluid tank under the hood for low fluid. If that is ok. Your leak may be your rear axle shaft seal. You need to remove the tire/wheel ether way. Jack up the car to pull the wheel, take your lugs loose while the tire is still on the ground, it is easy to take them loose this way. Take the EM: brake off, and jack up this side of the car. Your car could have disk or drums as both are offered on the 2003 Town car. Once the tire is off you will see if you have disk or drums brakes. If drums you will need to pull the drum off at access the brake cylinder to see if that is leaking or not. If drums you have to back off the brake shoes by the adjusting wheel thru a small access window in the back plate. If you have disk brakes the caliper is right there and will be easy to see if it is leaking. If you have determined it is the rear axle seal leaking, this may be best done by a shop, due to needing a few special tools to remove the axle and then reinstall a seal. You will need a slide hammer. If drum brakes you will have to remove the brake backing plate, this means shoes and all hardware, please take pictures and get as good focus as you can to see how everything goes back together. Once down to the axle mounting, remove the 4 bolts and attach the slide hammer and pop out the axle, catch any fluid that will leak out. Hope this helps FixYa up.

Pink fluid coming from drivers side front area near front left headlight Is it powersteering or brakes or what...?


It's the transmission fluid of the power steering fluid check the level on the transmission with it in park at idle if it's not on the stick do not drive it till you get it filled up it may be the transmission cooling lines going to the engine loose or the power steering hose loose or even the front axle output shaft seal on left side. check the transmission fluid first then check power steering fluid. If either is low do not drive it or you could destroy the pump on either one. Hope this helps. Thanks for using fix-ya.

Leaking Hydraulic Fluid


Power steering fluid is the only thing the car has resembling hydralic fluid. If you follow the rubber hose all the way around from the pump to the gear box, possibly with the car running and the wheel being turned back and forth by someone while you look, you should find your leak. This is assuming it is powersteering fluid. Check your pump. Is it low? Rubber hose probably turns to steel line somewhere along the path from pump to gearbox, hope that helps ya a touch.

Leak under car (front driver's side)


What is the colour of the oil? Power steering oil will be red in colour or match it with the oil from powersteering oil reservoir. Its easy to locate powersteering pump. as it is driven by drive belts. So look around it and check for leaks. If no leaks, follow the hoses as far as you can and see if you can find leaks. You can also get underneath the car with a light and try to trace the leak.
