I used a quart the Prestone strength steering fluid. It"s rated / spec"d to job-related with Ford PS as it meets every the requirements

Did you change the hoses as well? destruction (on the inside) is a constant contributor to pump and also rack demise. Put a filter in the return line. Monitor manufacturer"s reference (Type F i think) - don"t run a fluid with "leak seal" in it. If this is a track car where the PS fluid is seeing really high temps -- a different method may be required.
hoses are being replaced, this is a street car. Just any type of parts store sell the form f fluid, ~ no it fords brand of infectious diseases worldwide fluid?
I"ve supplied Amsoil ATF , Valvoline SynPower and also now using traditional F kind (which smells awful) and also didn"t notice any distinction in noise or feel throughout normal street driving.
Always ran form F in mine just since Ford called me so. Don"t understand the difference bit never had any type of problem through it, provided it tough on road course track days.
