PS Pump Going?

1084 Views 15 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  amc49
I'm fairly certain that my PS pump is starting to go. Just started making the whining noise on me. I didn't check the fluid level, but I did turn the steering wheel to each side about 5 times a piece to try to flush it.

What should I check before doing anything? And where wpuld be a good tutorial for doing it? The only challenge I would see is the belt, unless I know where everything is.

I also read on here that it takes tranny fluid? I didn't find the reference in my owner's manual.

Moved this to General Tech Chat, best for repair questions that don't have a special section for them.

Current version of Ford ATF is the normal fill for the PS system. Even with a manual trans. I figured I could afford a quart to change some & for top ups (grin).
