I have had the...

I have had the power steering salve cyliner, power steering control valves, and slave cylinder boot kit replaced and I'm still getting leaks. Is it possible that the steering control valves did not seat properly. All parts came from CJ Pony.

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

The job was done by my mechanic last week and no I don't hear any whining.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

1968 Ford Mustang Coupe 289ci

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Mustang yourself? What have you tried so far?

No-local garage mechanic is doing the work. He is skilled in older cars.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Also the speedometer cable has been replaced.

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

I would have the steering system components re checked to locate the source of the leaks.Any leaks found will need repaired to resolve this fault here.If this is or was already checked over and found to hard to see the leaks let me know.Check for any leaking seals needing replaced or loose lines.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

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.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

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.
