Default ughhh

I was pulling out of a parking lot today and I flattened the gas because its fun and when I straightened up I heard something fall and looked in my mirror and saw something rolling off into the woods.
Then I saw a line of fluid behind me as I was pulling over.
Ended up that the power steering pulley broke right out of the pump. Cant drive it because the belt runs other essentials too.

But, I feel lonely, my truck is out in a parking lot by itself with a puddle of power steering fluid underneath it.

Hopefully no chevy drives by and makes fun of my little broken down ford lol

yeah, I have another belt at the house that can hit everything I need on the motor besides the power steering, I took it out when the a/c was leaking. I just didn't have the tools to take out the pump at the time and it was dark by the time my ride got there so thats why she didn't come home. But I'll just drive around without power steering until I can get a pump from NAPA.

so its not that big of a deal. its just a little scary to see parts fall off and fly off the road and liquid pouring out behind you lol.

. It's all good!!

At least you have someone to learn from. I am trying to learn it by reading & lots of practice.

I am starting to get the eye for it, just really need some work with the manual settings on the camera.

well I got the new pump today everything went well. Installed it in the parking lot and it works just fine, shes back on the road and I left a nice little power steering fluid stain on the curb that I will always see there. haha
