Hello, I have a 2005 Taurus see. Have 95k miles on it. Recently my wife was driving it and the power steering, AC went out, and the car started stalling and idle rough all at the same time. I have an after market steering pump put in it, which is loud and periodically blows steering fluding out the cap. Check engine light code was something about the battery or charging, but brand new battery in it. 2 yr old alternator I installed. New plugs & wires. New pmr and O2 mix sensor Trying to figure out what to do with it. Could this be a problem caused by steering fluid getting on the alternator, compressor, or wiring?? Had a shade tree friend read a code with his Gizmo, something about "stay alive memory"? I don't know whether to sell and run or try and fix it. It's in pretty good shape and Less than 100k & I'd hate to sell if it's something I can fix. Sorry if the description is a little vague on the codes, I working a lot, so much info I get is through my wife. Anybody able to push me in a direction on this problem? Thanks, C
