When car is running, power steering fluid is low but
when you shut it off fluid pushes up out of pump

5 Answers


Ronald, The power steering pressure switch is located on the steering rack of the vehicle. Here is a link showing the location (number 13 in the diagram I believe) If you are getting fluid pumping out of the pump reservoir, then its either overfilled, or there is an air bubble present in the system. Good luck. http://www.oepartsstore.com/a/Ford__Taurus/54641528__6487 631/STEERING-GEAR--LINKAGE/JN92210.html
