Could be a stretched belt....bad power steering pump after she gets hot perhaps it starts to seize up causing the belt to spin over the pulley ?
Check the fluid level.

My dad put the wrong power steering fluid in our 2005 Nissan Quest. It we filled up to the max line before our 600 mile trip. After driving 600 miles it was at the minimum line. I can't find a leak in


Pull the injector fuse out,remove the power steering return line &
crank the motor to flush out the fluid into a bottle below the vehicle

What are the necessary repairs for a 2002 S500 Mercedes with 91000 miles? What should your car be serviced for by this point


Hi, this really depends on its service history.

The following are the recommended service intervals on the Merc S500:

Note: operate A/C at least once per week, to maintain lubrication.

Underhood & Undervehicle

Every 3,000 miles - Replace engine oil & oil filter. Clean battery terminals. Adjust drive belt. Check power steering fluid. Check steering & CV BOOTS for wear and replace if necessary. Lubricate front end suspension.

Every 6,000 miles - Check transmission fluid condition and level. Check brake pads and caliper components - replace if necessary. Lubricate driveshaft U-joints. Rotate tires. Lubricate wiper arm linkage and pivots.

Every 12,000 miles - Adjust engine valve clearance. Replace distributor cap & rotor. Drain and replace engine Coolant. Replace Air Filter element. Replace Fuel Filter. Replace wiper blades.

Every 24,000 miles - Replace Drive Belt. Replace A/C Compressor Drive Belt. ** Change auto transmission fluid & trans filter (this is critical and must be adhered to) - preferrably do a trans flush at same time. Replace drive AXLE fluid.

Every 36,000 miles - Replace HT leads.

Every 2 years - Replace brake fluid (also clutch fluid if applicable). Replace power steering fluid.


** If you intend to keep this vehicle long term, then consider changing the trans fluid & filter every 20,000 miles. This is the secret to automatic transmission longevity.

Purchased focus sport 2006 model no service manual. Mileage 43,000 kms. Need to know service intervals either time/mileage perhaps a copy of the service schedule will suffice.


These maintenance intervals come from the maintenance interval calculator
at www.autozone.com, using a starting point of 25,800 miles (43000 km), and
assuming 1000 miles (1666 km) driven per month, and "severe driving conditions," which
are actually normal usage characteristics, such as frequent short trips, urban driving, waiting in traffic, driving in hot weather, trips under 16 km in cold weather, etc.

Check your power steering fluid level, it seems that it is low on fluid. If it is low then check for leaks. The power steering works off of a serpentine belt, during idle the belt doesn't spin that fast thus making the power steering pump not work as much. During driving speed the belt spins fast making the pump work more efficient but do keep in mind there isn't a lot of strain on the steering when moving.

You will have to look where it is leaking from and get it fixed. Running without power steering fluid will eventually burn you power steering pump out and yes if you power steering is that hard to turn when out of fliud, it is dangerous.

Leaking power steering fluid


Dear Nina; Your best bet is to keep a few bottles of fluid with you for the trip. The reason being, is that the steering system will become very difficult to operate and there is a danger of burning out the power steering pump if it was to run dry for any lenth of time. Thank you, Dana
