How does one determine if a power steering leak requires hose or pump replacement. My pump was supposedly replaced a year ago, but I have a little trickle hitting the ground beneath it and I have to top it up pretty often.

All leaks have ben repaired for some time. Cat smokes when engine gets hot with no check engine codes. I have replaced all lines and gaskets. I purchased the car used with 125k miles. I just dont want to go buy a cat they are up there in price

i have 3 power windows don't work on my Taurus, 1 of them worked right up until today. and the other two i got from the guy with it like that, there is lights showing on the driver side controller but they aren't working. their own controls(the ones connected to the door) don't work either. so think it might be a wiring issue or something else?

My Taurus will start and run (rough) with water billowing out the tailpipe. Head Gasket problem. A friend mentioned there is a product I could use like a sealant to fix the problem and maybe get another year or two out of the car. What might this product be and what would it entail? No water in oil.

When I put water in radiator it pours out the bottom....jacked car up followed bottom radiator hose...seems fine...but there are some nuts and bolts next to that that looks like water could b e coming from???? or drizzling from somewhere else any suggestions...
