Video Description

Watch the video above to see how to fix minor power steering fluid leaks in your 1999 Ford Ranger. The power steering fluid helps make your Ranger easier to turn, especially at lower speeds. If you aren't sure what type of fluid is leaking from your car, check our What is Leaking? video to help determine the type of fluid leaking from your Ranger. Power steering fluid is generally clear, pink or red and is oily to the touch. If the steering wheel is difficult to turn or you noticed power steering fluid leaking from your Ranger, use the video above to see where the power steering fluid reservoir in your 1999 Ranger is located and how to fix minor power steering fluid leaks.

A small power steering fluid leak can make your Ranger difficult to turn. When you check your power steering fluid level, make sure your Ranger is parked on a level surface with the 4.0 liter engine turned off. We recommend wearing safety glasses and gloves when dealing with any engine fluids.
