I appreciate your time and look forward to your thoughts on this! The Problems Started Almost Immediately After Driving The Car Away From The Dealer. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. I had a Dodge Caravan that gave me over 86000 miles with minimal repairs. The Vehicle Was Taken To An Authorized Dealer For A Second Opinion And They Indicated That The Power Steering Low-pressure Line Contributed To The Power Steering Fluid Leak. The Power Steering Line Has Cracked So Badly That It Needs To Be Filled Daily Or I Lose Power Steering which Is Very Dangerous Now In The Winter Weather. Looking for a diagram that labels this component.

One Of The Annoying Sounds Was Fixed By One Dealer But Not All Of The Sounds. I took it to another dealer and all were fixed. Dirt gets into it and binds it up. It is a lean reading on bank 1. If it feels like it is intermittently locking up as you rotate, it the teflon rollers have failed and the pump will need to be replaced. Reattach the high pressure line and return fluid hose.

I replaced the cruise control deactivation switch under the master cylinder, hoping the cruise would be fixed. In General I Think The Quality Of This Car Is The Worst That I Have Ever Owned And I Have Owned Several New Cars In My Almost 70 Years Of Age. I took it to another dealer who replaced the bad rotor.
I Will Never Purchase A ford Product Again. Tried to put in reverse and it would not go, shifted to park again and it revved back up. Also what can happen are intake manifold leaks, and stuck Intake manifold runners on 1 side of the engine. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. How can I imposition others!
