Power steering reservoir has a bad leak. How do I


I think but please dont quote me on this, there is a easy fix for the resivoir leaking from between the pump and the resivoir. you can remove the powersteering by removing the serpentine belt and then turn the pully to line up the 3 bolt that secure the p/s pump. removed the resivoir by removing the clips, replace the seal ("O") ring for the resivoir and reassemble, reinstall and then retest, Hope this helps

Power steering leak


To try to find the leak, purchase a spray can of engine cleaner and spray the entire area of the pump and hoses. Then wash off with a garden hose. Fill pump reservoir with fluid. Have someone turn the steering wheel while you look in that area of the pump and hoses with a flashlight for the leak. Be careful of rotating fan and belts!

Power steering went out on 1996 ford ranger what is problem?


The problem could be anything from a power steering hose has leaked out all the power steering fluid or the steering rack could be leaking fluid. Has the car made any strange noises when turning the steering wheel? A car that is loosing power steering fluid will at some point lose so much fluid as to make the power steering pump cavitate (starve for fluid) and the pump will make a high pitched noise when it has too little fluid in it. I can't remember if the 1996 ranger had only one belt on the engine or if the power steering has it own seperate belt. The belt being gone would prevent the power steering from working but if you only have one belt the car would also overheat.
