It happened to mine when i bought it. A dealer in NC did it and i drove back to Ohio, I noticed when i would get off the highway I would loose power steering, went to local dealership and the fluid looked like a strawberry milkshake, they flushed it all out and have not had a problem since.
Just like go faster said the dealership took a five gallon bucket and ran fluid through the system till the water was gone. The service dept. even showed me a message from ford regarding the strawberry milkshake color and how ofton this was happining, The procedure to fix it is to flush it.
