1990 Ford Escort GT - Power Steering Fluid Everywhere
I've had the car sitting for a few months now and when I moved it
yesterday I noticed a small puddle on the floor underneath the steering
rack. When I pulled it out of the garage and turned the steering wheel
a bit I found a huge puddle on the driveway, where I first turned the
wheel. I suppose I had a small leak and one of the hoses shit the bed
when I put the p/s under load. Assuming the a hose failed from
non-use. Now the car has no power steering.
I never worked on p/s before, so other than replace the hoses if they
are bad and bleed the system, is there anything else I should do or
look for? Does the rack and/or pump need to come out to inspect it for
a blown seal or something?
