Re: serpentine belt installation for 2005 taurus
Okay, first things first. How is your steering? Are you getting any assist? Is your pump moaning pretty good?
Are we chasing a non-problem here? I mean a little overflow might just calm down once the air works itself out.
Assuming you still have a problem from above questions, I'm not 100% sure about this, but I don't think you want to ever remove the cap while it is running. I think it could introduce more air.
You really don't need a pair of towers, just a floor jack positioned in the middle that gets the wheels off the ground. Don't rock the car too much when turning steering back and forth. Also, don't turn the steering wheel all the way left or right to its steering stop. A little before the stop will do, before the pump begins to moan heavily.
Check you fluid level often while you do this (shutdown first of course), don't ever fill while running, don't overfill, and remove the cap just after engine shutdown to see if your fluid is foaming.
Let us know what you find.
