I started hearing a PWRS noise that made me think the fluid level was low. I
added a bit but it must have been to much or not needed to begin with
because when I placed the cover fluid was forced out in a long small stream
through the cover all over the engine. I brought it in for repair and the
guy said it only needed cleaning. This worked for a few weeks and the noise
returned. The pump was replaced but that only worked for a few weeks and now
I am told it might be the steering column. In second conversation he
mentioned the "rack" and something like over $300 in labor alone.
I really need some advice on what to do as I have now wasted $300 in towing
and pump replacement. I am now thinking of taking it to a dealer but also am
wondering if I can get a refund of my payment of the pump replacement. If I
have this guy do the work that will actually fix the car I might have better
luck talking money. If I go to a Ford dealer I am back to square one and
might lose what I paid the first guy.
Thanks to anyone that can comment.
