Customer Question
My name is *****...

My name is ***** *****, I have a 2003 ford excursion with a 7.3. It is leaking powersteering fluid behind the drivers side tire at an enormous rate. I can't seem to find where it is coming from though.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I have replaced the cap which was needed, I have recently replaced the hydraboost hose but that is about it. The wheel well electronics and fire wall are all wet

Hi. It is hard to see but the lines that go into the box are probably leaking. They may be leaking right where they go into the box, or they commonly rub on each other and leak a little higher up. You may have to remove the intake tubing or the wheel well to get a better look.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
