Hey guys; I need help with this.

I saw this in front of the front drivers side tire on my '98 Bull. Is this another fuel filter perhaps? Or is this a filter for something else?

Where do the hoses appear to go?

Maybe a additional trans filter was added.

That filter is for the power steering fluid.

PS fluid filter. Go price one out @ the Ford dealer.... I seem to remember they want something like $150 for it.

:lol2:!!!

Ahhhh yes, the rare titanium-plated, gold-lined genuine Ford steering filters. Using only the finest baby dodo feathers as filter material of course.

On my 1996 Sable (sold) the filter was an AC Delco filter.
I do not remember what the number was.
I would check it out probably cheaper than the Ford Stealership.

Stock is an AC Delco PF-2125. Cheaper to replace it with Magnefine/Raybestos/ ATPJX160 inline atf filter. Perfect fit.

Here is a better pic of the filter location and the hose to the PS rack from my last Taurus.

both my 99 cars, wagon and sable, do not have the ps filter.
cars were hertz fleet vehicles 10 months old when I purchased them.

Or simply wanted peace of mind filtering protection. If even needed, you could score the hardware (bracket, clamp etc.) @ local pick n pull or just splice the filter in and call it good.

Sheila, thank you. I have never heard of a PS fluid filter. I also have never changed PS fluid in any vehicle I've ever owned.

Easiest method is emptying reservoir with a turkey baster and refilling with mercon v atf. Repeat periodically until fluid remains relatively clean.
