Sally69Mach1

New vintage owner. 1969 mach 1. Nice to have some support. I have a simple question I think. I am leaking a reddish fluid, I thought was the automatic transmission fluid however the dipstick for the automatic transmission fluid continues to show full and it is a pale yellow. Am I leaking power steering fluid and if so, how do I check the level?

Welcome! I would worry that your trans fluid is yellow(ish) Should be Ford Type F red. You should have a power steering pump on the front of the engine, drivers side. It should have a small dipstick on the top. This should also use Ford type F fluid. Any idea where it's dripping from? Look under the car and see if you can see where its wet, or where the drips are landing on the ground. Front of the engine would be power steering, behind the engine would be the transmission.

Welcome! Happy to see another 69. To identify the leak's precise location, spread newspaper under the car from the front bumper to under the front seat area. In time you will see a puddle. That will tell you exactly what fluid is leaking and from where. Let us know what you find out. Glad you are with us.
