98 ford explorer sport power steering problem?
Today, however, I turned it on and the battery light came on, and when I started backing it out of my lot i noticed that I had no power steering. It was almost impossible to steer or turn at all, and a funny smell began coming out of the engine. I shut it off and after trying a few more times with the same result I gave up. It is in the low 30s right now and there is snow on the ground but it has started and run in colder weather than this plenty of times. I am going to call AAA tomorrow but does anyone have any ideas what could be going on?
