Question about 1999 Mercury Cougar
I have a 1999 Mercury Cougar. I have only had it less than 2 months however I have has some issue's with it. The biggest one is the current issue which every mechanic I ask about it doesn't seem to know what is going on. I am leaking power steering fluid and Coolant from underneath. There is a metal bar that runs long ways with a black nitting around it. The nitting is torn and when the car runs after about 5 mins it starts smoking and smelling like burnt oil, antifreeze, and power steering fluid. The place with the torn black nitting is where the smoke comes out of and the fluid leaks from. What is could be causing this issue?
This sounds like a hydraulic power steering hose straight too power steering and power steering gear box this is has a leak in it these hoses need to be replaced
now with the other problems sounds just like they need to have new hoses ran threw them too the bar if im hearing this correctly is water flow jacket like radiator hoses these hoses need to be replaced during a radiator hose replacement
if you could send me pictures of what your explaining i might be able to give you better detail of whats going on you can send pics too firstname.lastname@example.org
