Hubby just got back from Ford as he took her in for them to check the power steering unit. It comes out that the unit is leaking and going down the hose (not real bad yet, tho). They are going to replace both the unit and the hose. So check those units underneath to see if there is any seepage.

We talked to a 99 Cobra owner yesterday. Mentioned to him about our power steering unit leaking (taking it in on Tues to get new one). He said the Cobras have the same problem as they create a lot of heat especially at high RPMs-reving it hard, and to plan on replacing the unit more often than you normally would. Like once a year! They're not water cooled and they heated up pretty easily. Check your power steering unit often to make sure it is not turning black. You want it red. And he said to use synthetic fluid. It will take higher heat for a longer period of time!

I bet if we bring it up to Ford Tues. they'll act like they know nothing about it. :eek:

When I originally read your post regarding the power steering leak I thought whewwww I glad I don't have that......Well give it time..My level was low added some fluid...Just looking closely at the engine last night and guess what.....level at MIN...didn't see the leak but made a note to get it in for that now.....thanks for the orignal post Vicki.

I'm going to dump that silly power steering cooler line and install a proper finned cooler for the power steering.

Probably one of the smartest things you could do for this car. I am also going to put in a cooler as well. I think this car needs it.
