Power Steering Explosion
What not to do -
Be in 6" of snow in 4x4 high, moving along at about 15 mph while its snowing - cut the wheels - nail the gas pedal all at once, narrowly avoid some crazy old woman in a white Cadillac (should have let her hit me), then cut the wheels the other way with a short let-off and nail it again.
I'm 99% sure this is what caused my power steering pump to detonate like a thermonuclear warhead.
I knew Ford had had issues with power steering in the past, but wow...
Still, I can't complain.
I've owned the 04 Sport Trac since July and since then, it's not blown a motor, blew a tranny, broke a driveshaft, or had to have 8 brake jobs. I really can't complain so far.
