POWER STEERING

2007 Ford Freestyle • 6 cylinder RWD Automatic • 193,000 miles

Hi,
I've had no problems with this car until last year when engine went. I put a used engine in (85K miles). Now the steering feels heavy when I turn or when the car is cold and I'm noticing fluid on the driveway. Wondering the cost of fixing this issue vs. Getting rid of car. I wanted to keep it at least another year but if this is another expensive fix I think its time to get rid of it. Advice? Thanks.

The heavy steering cold be a belt and tensioner unless it was replaced when you did the engine. Otherwise you have otfind the leak to see what it is and cost.
