Question about 2004 Ford F250

1 Answer

Installed a new steering pump on an 04 powerstoke, when I got back home I noticed it was leaking. I put it back on the lift...and it was leaking from the shaft. So I figured bad pump right?! Got another one and the same thing happened. I turned the wheel to each stopping point to get out all the air bubbles and I replaced the line that goes from pump to hydro boost. I'm just unsure of why this is leaking. Thanks Bryan

    Well....got the third one in from ford this time and it appears to NOT BE leaking..so that's good, but it still seems to be an issue with the steering. The one line that goes from the steering gear box up to the hydro boost seems to be a little hot. Not sure if that line has has some kind of blockage or not. Fml! Any solutions to that besides replacement of the line. Like any other ideas on what it could be?

I have a power steering fluid leak but not coming from pump. It appears to be coming from something located on the upper part of the fire wall.


It is likely the high pressure power steering hose is leaking. Put the car on a car lift to confirm this is the problem, the line is very difficult to replace for an amateur home mechanic.

Steering and real bad vibration in front end


That is known as "the death wobble" for very obvious reasons. You need to install steering dampeners . They look like shocks and they mount between the drag link and the frame. They will cure the problem. Don't delay putting them on your Jeep. Hope this helps.

When the pump is not turning and you steer the vehicle it will sometimes force the fluid out of the pump. There's a good chance the pump is fine, just make sure you add fluid before you drive it.

Power steering pump


check the cap and make sure all the hoses are put on nice and tight. start the car and watch the pump, and look at the hoses as well. You might have to have some one turn the wheel back and forth to get the pump pushing the fluid thrue the system.
