as for the power steering pump, idk what to do. get a used/refurbished one, one from a scrapyard, or try to find a cheaper new one. i'll have to check rockauto or something. i'll be doing more research tomorrow. has anyone else had to replace their ps pump?
I had that shit happen with antifreeze. In the old focus. I shoved paper towels in it, and let them soak it up. If you try and run it with the fuel in there, it'll short out your conductors on your plugs and give you misfires.
