I have a 2004 Ford Taurus, one of the power steering pump hoses is not on, Can you drive it like that or not?

    How did the hose come off? Seems like it would be leaking fluid badly. This might result in damage to the pump, and possibly a fire hazard depending on where the fluid is going.

Running a power steering pump without fluid will damage the pump quickly, then eventually the power rack and pinion unit.
