Power Steering Problems

I have an AU1 Six, and have noticed power steering fluid leaking from underneath the car. Anyone have any suggestions where it might be coming from?? Is this a common problem?

Re: Power Steering Problems

Check the pressure sender, they crack and leak from what I have heard, or the seal around it may have perished, that a cheap and easy place to start, otherwise overhaul rack is the next step :0)

Re: Power Steering Problems

Thanks for that Dellboy.. you were spot on...$40 buck fix, Ford wanted $56. I believe it cracked just as you said.

and thanx to my bro, the tin was a superb idea for the short term. now you need a tin to put under your arse
