SOURCE: Suddenly leaking power steering fluid, reservoir empty

The best bet is its trans oil. The gearbox has crushable washers/gaskets, the bolts may just need to be tightened slightly to crush the gasket and seal.

SOURCE: steering problems

the windstar is very common for leaking powersteering racks, one way to check is to squeeze the boot that goes over the inner tierod and onto the steering rack, if it is squishy you will require a new steering rack

Where is the bleed valve for a power steering box


Open the hood and check the level of the power-steering fluid by removing the power-steering reservoir cap. Add the correct fluid recommended in your owner's manual to bring the level up to the full mark. Be aware that fluid that looks foamy is an indication of air in the system. Replace the cap.
Locate the power-steering bleed valve on top of the steering box near the bottom of the engine bay. Follow the power-steering, high-pressure lines from the power-steering pump to the steering box if you have trouble locating it.
Push a 6-foot length of rubber hose onto the end of the bleed valve. Run the other end of the hose into a drain pan.
Start the engine. Loosen the bleed valve fitting slightly with an adjustable wrench in a counterclockwise direction. Turn the steering wheel all the way to its stop one way and then the other several times. Shut the engine off.
Close the bleed valve by tightening it with an adjustable wrench in a clockwise direction. Remove the power-steering reservoir cap, and add fluid to bring the level up to the full mark.
Observe the power-steering fluid that came out of the rubber hose into the drain pan. Repeat the above procedure if there are air bubbles in the fluid. Close the bleed valve and remove the rubber hose when there are no air bubbles in the fluid expelled from the bleed valve. Close the hood.

How to flush power steering fluid


You can't unless you are going to disconnect the power steering hose from the pump. Use a turkey baster and suck all the power steering fluid from the reservoir. replace with new fluid. drive the car or turn wheel from lock to lock to rid bubbles. If you would like you can do the exchange again to just about rid all the old fluid.

Power steering reservoir has small foam like bubbles when engine is turned on


no history, why did you add fluid? ( it dont just go away. by self)
did you use the wrong fluid, Jeeps use very special fluid
if you use the wrong fluid or mix them (10x worse that) it will fail.
call jeep and ask them what is the correct fluid.
i once did it wrong (thanks to NAPA lies) and used the wrong fluid,
at he time there was no after market fluid for jeeps.
i had to go to jeep. and buy it.
1st hit on a real jeep forum
try there.

You likely have a bad power steering pump or a hose that is leaking. Do not put any fluid other than power steering fluid in the power steering reservoir. if you do you will wreck the hoses and pump. Better not drive it till you get it repaired or you may ruin something else or have an accident.

How to take the air out the power stering pump


It may sound awful but the best way to do it is to get a buddy and some extra power steering fluid. With the car running slowly rotate the steering wheel side to side. Have your buddy keep an eye on the reservoir to make sure it stays full. The air bubbles should come up into the reservoir and make it look foamy. Once the noise tops and the bubbles stop rising top off the reservoir and make sure it is to the full line and you should be good to go.

When i turn the steering wheel from left too right the wheel feels lumpy and heavy- though not all the time. some days it would be fine - i have checked the wheels and tyres for lumps or bulges these are...


It could be the pump, or you could also be low on power steering fluid. First off, check the level of the fluid and make sure it's adequate. Next, you can "burp" the power steering system easily, which will get rid of any air bubbles that could be in there. Easiest way is to jack the front end off the ground (both wheels), start the engine, take off the power steering fluid reservoir cap, and turn the wheel side to side as far as it'll go, several times. This circulates the fluid through the system and pushes any bubbles in there up to the reservoir, where they'll float up to the top and "burp" into the air.

If neither of those things works, you may have problems with the steering rack and pinion, or possibly with your suspension (check the tie rods, inner and outer, as well as the bushings in the various suspension pieces).
