Video Description

The video above shows you the steps needed to check the power steering fluid level in your 2006 Ford F-150. Checking the power steering fluid level in your F-150 is relatively easy and should be done once a month or if you are experienced difficulty turning the wheel or steering your F-150. Your F-150 should be parked on a level surface and your 5.4 liter engine should be cold to the touch.

If the power steering fluid level in your F-150 is low, fill it up to the maximum line with power steering fluid and check it again in a week to determine if you have a leak. The power steering fluid reservoir will typically have a symbol of a steering wheel on the cap. Likewise, if your F-150 has electric power steering, you may see a steering wheel picture with an explanation point next to it on your dashboard to indicate power steering problems.
