Having problems with your 2002 Ford Escort ?

I was parallel parking when all of of sudden i heard a pop of some sort. after the noise my steering wheel started to get hard to turn. luckily i was already parked. I got off the car and notice fluid falling out the bottom so i popped the hood. I noticed that the power steering fluid was empty so i place some in and located the spot where the fluid was coming from. The power steering fluid container connects to a hose then the hose connects to a metal piece This metal piece has a nut on the bot

Answers :

The front axles need to be replaced.
\015\012you should hear a pop pop popping when you turn sharply in a parking lot under a load or giving it gas.
\015\012left or right
\015\012unless the power steering fluid is all over the ground then the hose is good.you can verify this by checking the power steering fluid level.
\015\012let me know if this helps

When you turn your wheels back and forth it heats up the power steering fluid and makes it expanded. i think you heard this sound before when you turned ? If so that would mean you had a leak of some kind or power steering pump failure.... that little hose is a power steering line and i would try to fit it back on the nut ( aka feeding plug ) or take it to the shop and have it serviced a.s.a.p ... hope this helped
