HELLO AGAIN ,WAS PUTTING SOME OIL IN MY MONDEO JUST TO TOP IT UP ,I HAD A MOMENTARY LAPSE OF CONCENTRATION ,AND PUT A FEW DROPS OF OIL INTO THE POWER STEERING FLUID ( TWIT ) I REALISED AS SOON AS IT WENT IN ,DOES NOT SEEM TO HAVE CAUSED A PROBLEM ,COULD SOMEONE ADVISE ME ON WHAT THE BEST COURSE OF ACTION WOULD BE ? OR WILL IT NOT CAUSE A PROBLEM ? ,I WOULD SAY AT LEAST 4 TABLESPOONS OF OIL WENT IN THERE ?
CANT BELIEVE I WAS SO STUPID .... THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR HELP GUYS

Hello again was looking for some advice or possible diagnosis of a knocking noise when i turn the wheel on my 2001 mondeo zetec ,it does not knock all the time just when stering at slow speed like reversing off my drive for instance it will make a knock ,this happens maybe three times a day ,any ideas ??

Have been told it could be the cv joint , track rod end ? is this a hard job to tackle myself ? (haynes book on route)
