You have not posted anything about a noise when turning the steering wheel, nor anything about the condition changing under different circumstances. Now, how to test if pump need to be changed or what other could create hard steering?

Unless the back of the bottle indicates that it meets Mercon or Mercon V, than to me, the risk is not worth the budget price. Where the problems resolved with draining and replacing with plain mercon? It is listed in many after market power steering fluid datasheets. Those friction properties are not really needed in a non modulated computer controlled transmission or transfer case but do not hurt anything.

This box will disappear once registered! Hope You understand what i want to say. My 02 Escape guide was similar. If there is misinformation here, just wondering where? Sounds like he was trying to sell you whatever he had. I can't say yay or nay for the 4405 and others though, not familiar enough with them. Did you read the Ford Special Service Message above? Blindly replace parts or do procedures and hope you fix the concern. Kevin I dont see any specific direction in manual how to refill exactly, but i am pretty sure i did correctly. But even with all the job it doesnt change nothing the steering is still little hard as before.
A generic fluid may be compatible with older Ford products that used type F transmission fluid. It was also semi synthetic, and quite a bit pricier. But i would not waste money on a expensive synthetic in these trans as its overkill. As posted above it is hard to tell what you have used based on what you have posted.

The suitability of a part for a particular application must be verified. Mercon and Mercon V are not interchangeable.
Hard steering can be caused by several things, including worn or misaligned steering components, air trapped in a power assist components, etc. Why does Ford constantly make detrimental changes in their products? Just some thoughts for pondering. You posted the generic fluid meets this spec. I has used the van for a month with no problem than i have Parked it outside in the cold wheather for all the month of february with not a singles start. Now all of this is being done to resolve a hard steering concern.
But i am not able to find it anymore on net or local store can someone find me please and also if it is possible to tell me what quantity is should i buy?
