No power steering


fill it with fluid and look for the leak the system is under the most pressure when the front wheels are all the way to one side or the other..(all the way left or all the way right) if a helper can turn the wheel, you can inspect for the leak to determine where its at..if a hose is craked open, you can cut it and install a ferrule and clamps on it,,if its the pump, it needs replaced..and if the pump growls already due to low fluids it will need replaced very soon anyway..good luck it can be driven carefully but I dont sugest it..

How to change the fluid of the power steering ?


Open the engine hood.

There will be several fluid reservoirs under the bonnet. If the car / truck has power steering, one of them will hold about 150-300ml of fluid that should be a red color. If you put some on your hand it is very slippery.

The other reservoirs will hold water for the windscreen washer, and one connected to the radiator to hold coolant.

Check that the reservoir you intend to put the power steering fliud in is not connected to the radiator and does not contain water.

Take the cap off to check.

If you can't see in to the bottom, roll up some kitchen paper towel and feed that in until you get some fluid on it - red, you hope!

There will be marks (horizontal lines) on the side of the reservoir showing "Min" (minimum) and "Max" (maximum or full). Slowly pour in replavcement fliud until the tiop of the fluid is between the marks.. Put the cap back on, close the engine hood, drive for a short distance (2 km?) and check the levels again.

Top up the reservoir to just under "Max". Replace the cap.

Check the level after a short period of normal driving - a couple of weeks, If it is still going down a mechanic needs to check the power steering seals.

good luck.

I believe a belt fell off my car, making the steering extremely difficult, and also causing my red generator light to blink on and off. Can I still drive the car short distances without hurting the...


M mostly an expert on passat v6 engines but the it was the timing belt you wouldn't be going an inch over. M not sure if it use the same belt as timing belt but base on what you are describing yes the belt or fluid ( power steering) seem to be fault. No I would not drive it because of serious safety reason and also damage to steering parts and pump. if that belt broken off or damage that mean you timing could be on it's way. When that happen say good buy to the motor. The altering isn't charging the battery there for would show bad alternator sign. If the same belt turn the fan( if u have one) pump, ac, could signal those errors.

Power steering presure line how to change


Hello, to replace try this :

1. Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise using a ratchet and socket. Then slide the drive belt off the power steering pulley. Let the tensioner pulley carefully return to the original position without snapping back to prevent damage to internal components.


2. Place a drain pan under the vehicle to catch power steering fluid after you remove the two hoses from the steering pump.


3. Detach the pressure hose from the steering pump by loosening the retaining nut with a flare wrench. Let the steering fluid drain into the drain pan.

4. Loosen or slide the clamp off the return line at the steering pump (depending on the type of clamp used on your particular Taurus model). Use a ratchet and socket or a pair of slip joint pliers.Then detach the return line from the pump with your hand and let the steering fluid drain into the drain pan.

5. Unplug the steering pump electrical connector, if your particular model is equipped with it.

6. Remove the power steering pulley from the pump using special tool 211-016 (T69L-10300-B). For more information, see the Resources section below. Make a note of the pulley distance from the steering pump body at the mounting shaft, so that you use the same amount of clearance when you mount the pulley on the new pump.

7. Unfasten the power steering pump mounting bolts using a ratchet, ratchet extension and socket and lift the pump off the engine compartment.

Thanks

I just my car home and i noticed my car was out of power steering fluid. Can i drive the car to go get power steering without causing in trouble?


Is it out or just out or real low? Low is ok to drive to a short distance store, but out can cause more trouble than you would want. I would not drive it if it's out.

Where do you add power steering fluid


The cap for the power steering fluid is located to the rear of the engine on the left side and quite a distance down from the top. It is not easy to get to and you need to be very careful not to burn yourself when accessing it since it is near the exhaust manifold. Best to top it off when the engine is cold.
