I put in a new streeing box and now i have no power steering. it is a 1999 ford e150


Sometimes, before you hook up the pressure hose, you need to prime the steering box with power steering fluid. Then, when the van is running and the pump is full turn the steering wheel at least three times all the way both ways to pump the fluid through the system. Check fluid level once more to top it off and that should do it.

You will be forced to break your steering lock assembly to take out the plunger from the steering column. This is often done with a heavy screwdriver inserted into the lock mechanism and then turned violently, often with the aid of a pair of Mole grips.

hi Jo,the power steering is powered by the fanbelt and if its slipping will cause it to go heavy but a light would come up on the dash to tell you the alternator was not charging.so if not the belt,it could be the electrics for the pwr steering need looking into,this is easier to get on the dealers diagnostic computer which will show up the exact fault.and would save any guesswork.

Very heavy steering on escort xr3i


it varied across the range, if you can see a bottle with a steering wheel icon on top then yes, however the older escorts where heavy to steer, i think that it was later on that they started adding power steering.
