Hi, I bought my son a fiesta 1.8 diesel christmas 2007, and ithas stood in my drive since april 2008.

I have just got round to putting a new battery on, and she fired up second time ! now my problem is, there seems to be No
power steering ? there is fluid in the chamber, and no leaks that I can see, not being a mechanic - I wondered if some kind person could
point me in the right direction.

Many thanks in advance.

Thats a good test. Remember Fords only have Power ASSISTED Steering which isnt the same as power steering.
