I have a 2007 Ford Focus. About 4 days ago I started having problems turning my car. It was really hard to turn. I have a mechanic in the family and he thought it was my power steering pump. I noticed a leak of reddish fluid. He replaced the pump for me last night but I went to drive my car today and it was fine until I started coming home and it was turning hard again. I noticed the fluid leaking again. I checked my fluid in the car and it was empty again. Could it be a hose? Or is the next possible problem the rack and pinion? My family member who is a mechanic is thinking it is the rack and pinion, but he is at work and is unable to look at my car right now.
