Of course at around 5 p.m. today on a long weekend with decent weather predicted..... Power steering hose failure... Crap!!! I have not decided if I'm going to bring it in on Tuesday or fix it myself. I can't stomach the idea of some apprentice kid changing my hose and then taking my car out for a thorough beating. I used to work at Ford and I have seen to many so called mechanics wreck customers cars.

It has Ford in the name, right?

Yeah, my dealership put over ten miles on my car when it was in. I know they had to drive it to diagnose it, but since they also stole the change out of my car, I have to wonder what those 10 miles were like.

Uh oh, do I see a trend here? Bluetoy, I've had my power steering go out on my twice since my JRSC. The first time it was a hose as you described, but they ended up replacing the whole system. This time I haven't bad time to jack it up yet so I'm not sure where it is leaking from. Like my other post, I'm wondering if the JRSC and hard driving is causing a lot of vibration or jerking around that is breaking things loose. Do you have new motor mounts by chance?

Wow, still? They had mine in 2 days. That's UNtypical of my dealership. They jerked me on the free rental saying they weren't going to cover it under warranty this time as per Ford. I fought with them, had a Ford rep come out and declare it warranty work...but I was still screwed out of a rental car for the week.
