mongo125 Here is part of a tsb out for your symptom, it says its eligible to be covered under new vehicle limited warranty coverage

Some 2006 and 2007 Focus vehicles built on or after 10/3/2005 may experience a customer concern of the Power Steering (P/S) system leaking and/or system noisy. This may be due to a damaged O-ring seal at the P/S reservoir-to-pump body causing a low fluid level or fluid aeration.

Hope this helps

look at the return hose on the front of the pump. I can almost guarantee you that there is fluid soaked around it.

MightyMouse Top off the power steering res. Mine did the same thing and I checked and it was in the normal range but would still do it. So I filled it up just incase and it stopped and hasn't come back since.
