    1st, do you have any trouble codes stored, check these before you buy any parts, if it is a crank sensor code go to the dealer & buy a crank sensor, undo the 10 mm bolt that holds the sensor in ...... Un-plug the sensor ........ pull it out, slide new one in, bolt up ...... Plug in the new sensor & see if that cures the issue, these are not cheap so do your testing 1st, don't throw parts at the problem, if you are not sure take it to the dealer, it will save money in the long run, and frustration.



    Take your Vin # so the dealer can give you the correct sensor

You might need more. Fluid look for a cap with a steering wheel on it and check your levels add power steering fluid if needed if that's not it your power steering pump is probably bad

How to fix a 0171 code


Your problem is being caused by a leaky power steering switch.

The switch develops a leak, which causes power steering fluid to seep into the engine wiring harness. The seepage eventually finds its way into the front O2 sensor, which then shorts out. The engine computer then starts reading a lean condition, and enriches the fuel/air mix going into the engine to compensate. However, since the shorted O2 sensor never responds to the extra fuel, the engine computer keeps shooting more and more excess fuel.

Replacing the O2 sensor by itself will not help matters, as you may have guessed. The seepage will have about a week or two to short out the new O2 sensor, then you will start seeing the same problem again.

The cure is to replace the leaky power steering switch (it's near the power steering pump), spray brake cleaner into the wiring harness until it drips off from near the front O2 sensor, let dry, and replace the front O2 sensor again. All of these actions must be completed, or you will see another recurrence of this exact problem.

Ford mondeo 1.8 td diesel, the problem is the power steering fluid is leaking, when i check it look like it was coming from the middle part of the radiator.how can i fix it and what parts do i need to get...


Have a look at the power steering fluid cooler it is just in front of the radiator behind the front bumper. The coolers corrode and leak. Also the seals can go, check for fluid leaking out of the boots at the track rods. Try this procedure :--- 1)Trace the source of the leak. Use a mirror on an extended handle to follow the puddle of fluid on your garage floor to the power steering system. Look on the hoses and gaskets to find from where the fluid could be leaking. 2) Add power steering stop leak additive to your power steering fluid. Lucas Power Steering Stop Additive is 100 percent guaranteed to stop seal leaks. In older cars, the seals shrink, causing leaks. The stop leak makes the seals swell to their original size. 3) Use gasket sealant if the gaskets are old and leaking. Sealant, such as Permatex, is resistant to engine fluids, and will help repair a leaky gasket. 4) Replace the gasket, if the gasket sealant does not work. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

2004 audi a6 3.0l noisy powerstearing


check for leak in power steering hose by taking cap off the power steering resevoir and than starting car, wait 1 min, turn wheel all the way left and than all the way right. do this about 5-8 times slowly over 3 min or so. turn car off, than observe fluid in resevoir. if you see lots of bubbles after 30 seconds or so, you have a leaky hose. air in the system makes the steering pump groan and moan and vibrate. if the pump is not bad, than change the hose and clamp. just fixed mine yesterday.  also buy a quart of 11s pentosin power steering fluid (green)...
