Hey guys i noticed some smoke comming from my hood when i turn my car off and it smells kinda like powersteering fluid but i am not too sure. I do have a little bit of fluid on top of my powersteering cap and i know that Fords dont have very good powersteering pumps for thier cars but i still am not 100% sure if its that or my coolent. Is there a defenite way to tell the two apart? Thanks~Erik

When you have a PS leak you will know it. There isn't much capacity in the system, ~ a quart. So if you blow a hose it will run out in a short time. Probably just overfilled it. Mid range is best. When i fill mine to the top mark it will belch it out at a track event.
