Leaking Power Steering
Hope someone can help, car is EB2 Fairmont, I've got a power steering leak on the right hand side, it's not at the pump, somewhere around the p/s pressure switch, it drips onto the rubber boot, now is this something I can fix or could it be the actual rack that is faulty. Just out of interest how much will a rack set me back from the wreckers? I think this only started yesterday as i parked my car and saw a nice trail of red fluid. Now this could be unrelated, I had the a/c on and came to a roundabout turned the a/c off and went through the round about, now as I was accelerating i could here the clutch fan was still engaged, normally i don't hear it when the a/c is off and then i had what looked liked smoke come through the vents, it wasn't smoke didn't smell like anything, I turned the cooling off and havn't had it on since.
To Sum up:
P/S leak around pressure switch
Smoke like stuff coming through vents
How much might a P/S rack set me back
Any clues guys
PS I have a workshop manual and have had a little look.
