Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
The 2007 Escape Hybrid has electronic power steering and does not use any power steering fluid. The power steering rack and pinion has an electrical motor on it that assists with the power steering assist. You will need to have the PSCM (Power Steering Control Module) tested for trouble codes as it is a module and communicates over the wired network in the vehicle. You will need to find a repair shop that can test the systems properly to diagnose what is causing the problem.
