Ford F-150 owners have reported 10 problems associated with power steering fluid (under the steering category).
#1 - Power Steering Fluid problem of the 2010 Ford F-150
The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 1FTFW1CV0A_. The vehicle had a crash. I was involved in a low-speed 45 miles a hour front end collision. I was in a Ford F-150 4 door 2-wheel drive. My seat belt worked great. The air bag went off but did not hit me in the face. The front of the truck was crushed badly but with no fluid leaks. After the wrecker pull my front bumper free from my front tires I was able to drive the truck back home about 100 miles. All system worked great. The truck showed that the Ford safety system worked well. I had no injuries except for my left hand. And that is the complaint. Why would Ford or ntsb allow a Ford design that not only can help save a life but for sure will injure the very person they are trying to save. Being a engineer myself I believe they could design the tear pattern, which is the problem, on the steering wheel air bag so that it did not fly open left & right and inflect a severe blunt force injury to my thumb by the Ford emblem. The injury is just like I was hit with a hammer on my thumb. It did not break my thumb but a severe skin break and bruise that took 2 weeks to heal. I have pictures if that would be of help. Have Ford engineering call me and I will show them how to fix the problem. I do not like to be injured while you are trying to save my life. Ford can do both. Save my life and not injure me at the same time. Thanks - cj. It was Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2013 when this power steering fluid issue occurred.

#4 - Power Steering Fluid problem of the 2009 Ford F-150
The vehicle involved is a 2009 Ford F-150. The VIN of the car is 1FTRF12W69_. During an inspection the power steering hose was found to be leaking. Advised by service agent to take to dealer as a warranty issue. Took it to the dealer, they said new power steering hose is required and sent on my way after being told hose is ordered. More than a week later I find out, after searching online that people have been waiting 10 weeks for the same replacement part from Ford, the only supplier of this particular hose! I contacted Ford because the dealership does not respond to phone calls and was told that the dealer says that it is safe to drive. Well I feel that any leaking power steering hose is a safety issue. The response from Ford was to purchase a large container of power steering fluid and continually top up the fluid. They said this advice was from the dealer. This issue needs to be reported simply because the more you drive the higher the risk of a catastrophic failure of the steering and the risk of death or injury to the driver and occupants. It also needs to be highlighted the blase attitude of Ford and their dealers to this matter. It was certainly of big enough concern initially for the dealership to try and find a rental vehicle that they would pay for in lieu of loss of transport as was concerned that the vehicle was not safe to drive for long distances. This issue happened on Wed., Feb. 22, 2012.
