MY 2003 ford escape 3.0 engine whistles and looses power going up hill I've check the belts and thats not the problem I've heard that it most likely wlll be a vacuum leak can you tell me were I...

Check the vacuum line under and in front of the throttle body...with engine idling. It is located under where the air filter snorkel attaches to the engine. Then check all vacuum lines at the intake manifold. Check vacuum lines at distribution block on firewall and check the large brake booster vacuum line from one end to the other. You'll find it!

Power steering gets hard when turning and it feels like the fluid isnt flowing the way it should

Hello, There is a reservoir line coming out of the bottom of the reservoir tank. This line goes to the front fluid cooler under the drivers' side front bumper. The line has both metal and rubber on it and the line mounts to the frame with plastic clips. The plastic clips hold moisture and salt next to the metal part of the line and it rusts. The frame will hide the leak and the line will draw in air making foam inside the pump. Check this line from the reservoir to the cooler.

Next, as the original owner of a 1999 model, I received a Service notice about the tie-rod ends. It said a Mechanic should separate the tie-rod ends when lubing the truck to check for rust in the socket of the tie-rod end. These are sealed fittings from the factory, Ford could have included fittings in the first place. I don't see any Mechanic doing the procedure without replacing the end.
So your tie-rod could need Service.

Check upper and lower ball-joints, rust can make the steering hard on any vehicle. If you decide to change out the pump, check whether the new pump comes with the pulley. Some of the pulleys require a special tool you can borrow from an Autoparts store and some pulley tools are meant to be used while the pump is still on the truck.

Steering and turning the wheels is also dependent on the front-end alignment. The alignment is something you can not do yourself, but the Mechanic would inspect the different things I mentioned for the ball-joints and tie-rods ends. To save money, you could replace all the ends yourself, by counting the number of turns each tie-rod end takes to come off. Then replace the end with the same number of turns. You would be close enough to drive for an Alignment.

I hope I have provided very good information for fixing your truck. Make sure the front tires are inflated well and have the heavy stuff done by someone with the right tools.

When i crank up my explorer it is pouring transmission fluid stop at a red light an it leaked out a quart of fluid

You won't go far this way. Its cheaper to tow it than replace a transmission. There are a few fluid lines to check at the transmission. Several servos and the speedometer sender are in the case.
They have gaskets and the plastic may crack. The Transmission pan can leak. The fill tube can separate from the transmission.

If the leak is coming from the inspection cover next to the engine, it can be a front seal, and if the leak is coming from where the drive-shaft slides into the transmission housing, that's a tail-shaft seal.

The fluid lines run to the front of the SUV to the Radiator where there are cooling lines going into the bottom of the Radiator. It can leak from a Radiator tank hole because there are 2 separate tanks in the Radiator. Then all you do is replace the Radiator. On some models there may be a separate Air cooled Auxiliary radiator, not to be confused with a power steering cooler.

The fluid lines will rust and need replacing. If you are trying to make a line, there are different flares for the tubing ends. Bring in your bad part to match it up.

I hope my solution is helpful to you. You need to be under the SUV to see anything. Even a quick change lube bay would make it possible to find a leak.

Replacing leaking transmission cooler lines under front bumper

There is no pressure when the engine is off. You don't have to do anything as far as putting pressure back in other than starting the engine.
Not knowing whats leaking and if its actually the lines then go get a replacement either at the parts house or the dealer.

I have a rattaling noise from the front wheel arches when i drive on bumpy roads -steering feels o.k.

Look under your fender well for the plastic liner that covers the underside of the fender. You need to take the tire off. There are about 4 screws holding this liner. Check to see if any or all is loose. Chances are the plastic inserts are worn out. They can be found at your nearest Ford Dealer.

Turbo used to whistle cant hear whistle and there is slight rattle when accelerating

Same thing happened to me.
First check the intake plumbing for a boost leak. Ripped flex pipe, loose clamps. Pull off the small vent in the bumper (right side) and check if the intercooler took a hit. Inside the right front wheelwell look and see if the plastic liner is intact or if the intercooler is exposed- could have taken a rock hit, unlikely but it's an easy thing to check and doesn't cost a dime to look

Then no matter what you find with the boost leak you have to get your hands on a vac pump. There's a vac line that runs to the underside of the turbo. It goes to a 'pod' on the bottom. Follow it up to the T, then hook the vac pump there. You want to test the vac pod on the turbo to see if it holds pressure. Pump it up while feeling the actuator rod on the turbo. (You want to do this on a cold engine by the way)
When you apply vaccuum the rod should move smoothly AND it should hold vaccuum. If it seems like it is draging and poping free the actuator is shot. Or it bleeds down at all then either you have a leak in the vac line or the vac actuator needs to be replaced.

Found oil underneath but cannot see any oil dripping from the bottom of the engine? the oil filter is on tight, i checked the dip stick and the oil is full.also is ther any history of front end problems...

That series of Jimmys and Blazers are known for front wheel bearings failing. If you start hearing a load rubbing or dry grinding have them checked and when you replace one do them both. With the oil problem, could it be transmission fluid? You might have a leaky transmission cooler line.

A/c comes out of front defroster. I also found a vacuum hose lose near the front firewall and I cant find out where it goes.

I tried to give you a vaccum diagram but the manufacture will not release that info to outsiders. you need to find where the hose goes to.if you loose vac to the controls it goes to defrost mode.

Sunroof leak

there are drain hoses on all all four corners of the sunroof. to access the front ones, remove the front inner fender liners. you'll probably see a plastic grommet/spout that the drain hose attaches to. in the rear, remove the trunk liners on the side. you should see the drain hoses running down the inside of the quarter panel.
