Hello you will need to top up your power steering fluid once you have completed that you will need to turn your steering wheel with car running all the way to the left and all the way to the right be sure to keep the power steering pump cap off while your rotating your steering back and forth.You will need to keep repeating this all the way left then all the way to the right until that gurgling wind sound is gone and so will be all the air in your power steering.Once you have completed this don't forget to top up power steering fluid if necessary and be sure no t0o forget to put your filler cap back.You have now bleed your power steering

Steering hard to turn to the left like power steering is out but turns ok to the right. Checked power steering fluid. It is OK


bad steering problems,,your steering rack most likely,but,have you recently been stuck in ditch? when wheels are straight, look at front of car when parked. do wheels look funny? one going one way, and the other going the other? may be alignment. is it leaking any fluid on either side of the front of the car? drivers side? passenger side? if it's not out of alignment,,,wheels out of alignment,,the steering rack is the problem. it may be faulty. if not leaking fluid,it may still be bad. first i would make a visual test look under the vehicle while someone turned the steering wheel to right and left while car is in park,emergency brake on!! look at the steering arms while they turn the steering wheel from right to left. no fluid leaks? any resistance in turning the wheel? any leaks,if so,go to leak and repair with steering line replacement.no leaks? suspect a bad steering rack. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com i love to volunteer

When I turn my wheel either left or right it makes a loud whinning noise, and when I turn it, the powersteering fluid seems to leak out?


You have a bad Power steering Pressure hose. The whine is a lack of power steering fluid at the rack, and to continue to drive it this way will destroy the rack and pinion unit.

My 66 mustang pops when I turn it right. I think


The first suggestion is to replace the tie rods. In most cases where there is alot of play and a popping sound when the wheel is turned is because the inner parts of the tie rods are worn through and should be replaced as soon as possible. You could lose control easily if the tie rod pops out completely.
There are inner and outer tie rod ends which keep the wheel in a straight line while attached to the axle. Tie rod ends can be found on the inside of the wheel and are attatched to a longer metal bar which allows tight steering by controling the path of the wheels. The tie rod ends themselves look of a ratchet, with the handle end being threaded.

Are there any secrets to removing the old steering wheel from a '66 Mustang coupe?


Use a steering wheel puller. Breakout the WD-40 or penetrating oil and spray around the steering wheel splined shaft also. Let the solvents sit for at least an hour before attempting to pull the steering wheel. No steering wheel puller and your going to have very sore hands or a bloody nose when it finally does break free. A word to the wise loosen the nut but leave it threaded at least 3 threads do you don't smash yourself in the face with the steering wheel. (Sadly that is a real case of a BAD experience)

Powwer steering out of control


It will probably just sit there when you start the engine, then take off like a rocket when you touch the steering wheel? The wheel will take off in the opposite direction of the way you tried to turn the steering wheel. (you start to turn the wheel to the left and it rips out of your hand and goes right until it slams the full right stop, then rockets back to the left until it hits the full left stop and shoots back to the right again and repeats this process until the engine is shut off.)
If this is the case, you have the hoses from the control valve to the power cylinder reversed.

Power steering dont work to left or right


To find out witch it is,pump or rack and pinion,break loose the presure line on the power steering pump with a wench.Start the car and turn the steering wheel back and forth,you may need to loosen the nut on the power steering hose two or three turns to get the fluid to shoot out.It should come out pretty forceful.If it doesn`t,then replace the pump.If it does come out really powerful,replace the rack and pinion.

1966 mustang steering problem.


According to the service manual, your turn the steering wheel full left to full right a few times. As it's effectively a circulating system, the air will pump its way back into the resevior.
