I have an issue with my steering in an ED Fairmont, if I am turning at low speeds i.e.: reversing out of car park, u turn etc. I get a loud noise coming from the steering area (pump) and also a fair bit of vibration through the steering wheel. I had the steering serviced recently (change fluid, alignment, balance yada yada) but this has not fixed the problem. It mainly does it when turning left. It is fine when moving at normal speed. I have also replaced shocks and springs with a monroe gt gas/king spring setup about 5000ks ago.
Talking to a ford service guy who said this was a common fault in the ED and there is an actually an additive you can add to the fluid which should remove the problem. Any one have any idea what could be causing this and how I would go about fixing it? And have you heard anything about this additive??
