    hey all, i figured i would post since you guys um...are soo coo :dancing6: :dancing6: and will help me. i blew out my trans in my car(02 taurus...granny car) and i get it back from the shop and the power steering whines like a mofo. I check the fluid when its running, its WAY LOW, like to the point where i can see shit spinning at the bottom. I say alright, needs fluid, i shut it off, it fills up and gets frothy and overflows. I take it down to the transmission guy and he says 'no pinched lines, i dunno what it is, take it down to a guy that knows power steering and let us know'. Any ideas as to what could cause this? It was FINE before i took it to the shop. im tired of my car being stupid...lol. thanks guys!!

    well i went to FoMoCo and they told me i had air in the lines, sooo i guess the transmission shop is either gonna give me ATF to fill it and 'bleed' it or they do it, ATF is too expensive for a broke HS kid like me....i love it when things arent my fault :dancing6: :dancing6:
