Mercury Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
If the engine was still running when you lost power steering as well as it over heating I would have a look at the drive belt. If it broke and or came off you would have lost power steering as well as the water pump would have stopped turning. Check this and let me know and we can work from there.

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.
