The local Ford dealership...

The local Ford dealership replaced the power steering high pressure hose on my 06 f-150 with a hose that does not have the pressure sensor. Now I'm getting a P0553 trouble code. The dealer insists that the problem is not that the pressure switch is no longer there.

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

I just checked the fluid level and there's no noise

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

My question is, will my truck set this code if the sensor is not in place?

What Customers are Saying:

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.

MollyUSA

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.
