Power Steering Loss
I have a 2000 Ford Excursion 7.3L diesel. The power steering has been whining for several years now but I've heard that is normal for these pumps so I have not thought too much about it. Today however, power steering failed and I have to stand on the brake pedal to get to stop. Stopping power is minimal so I had to be careful on the last few blocks to work. Is this a case of low fuid? I'm not familiar with anything mechanical so forgive me for asking. Where is power steering resivior located to check levels? Thanks for any help.
