Having problems with your 2002 Ford Taurus ?

Power steering fluid is spraying hard out of the resivior cap

\015 I had the engine swapped, the car sat for a while. Ever since the PS didn't work. I changed the pump and the steering is pretty erratic, like it has some hard spots. When I shut the car off fluid sprays out of the cap like a rocket.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 23-05-2022

Answers :

Sounds like they put the power steering lines back on in the wrong order.
there is a chack valve in the rack that allows the fluid to flow one way only... this valve has been bypassed by either putting the lines on in reverse , or it may have fallen out if they dislocated the lines at the rack... either way it is VERY DANGEROUS to opperate this vehicle in the present condition... the steering can suddenly shift to one dirrection and tear the wheel out of your grasp.
