Question about Ford Focus
You should only use the fluid required by the car manufacture as some fluids have friction molecules in them that work with the components that were built to use a friction type fluid system.others don`t have this friction molecule in it to be used by a system that doesn`t require the friction molecule.its like using the wrong transmission fluid in a transmission it will cause transmission problems because of it.and just for your information not all red power steering fluid has the correct properties for a particular application.thats why its important to use the proper fluid for the application.

Testimonial: "just shows that experts know more than just your average joe bloggs"
First --why have you not had that steering problem
Why are you waiting 3 months when you know
you need work done
I don't except that loads of mechanics can not
come up with a solution
I will however accept that you don't want to
spend what will be required to repair it
The color of any fluid is only the dye they put in it
Your Ford product will use Red -- Dex/Mercon
or Mercon V . Have to check your owners manual
If you don't change Power Steering Fluid every 3
years or 30,000 miles the steering rack will fail,
as will your transmission,if that isn't changed at
every 30,000 miles
Green Fluid would be most likely a different specification
and for say a European or Asian Vehicles ,just as an example
You ask a question but never said what the problems were !!
