SOURCE: Should my highlander with 70000 miles need

it never hurts to service the power steering and the transmission, but at 70xxxmi it is not necessary if you check the owners manual it should show a transmission service at 100xxxmi but you will find nothing in the owners manual about the power steering this is a fairly new thing that we are seeing some shops do, i am not sold on weather it needs done at all.

SOURCE: How do you check the

There should be a dipstick for it between the engine and the firewall labeled transmission.If there isn't one,a shop has to check it but I don't believe that method started until well after your year model.Start the car and let it warm up for 5 minutes on a flat,level surface.With the engine running,pull out the dipstick and wipe off with a paper towel will do.Reinsert the stick and check the level according to the marking,same as an oil level marking.Do it a couple of more times to ensure accuracy.If you do need fluid,you need to simply read the back of the transmission fluid container.Every manufacturer makes their own so it is not universal.Toyota for yours obviously.When adding fluid,you can turn off the car but you will need to add little by little,doing 3 or 4 readings,being careful not to overfill.Somewhere in the mid to upper range of the marking is best.Overfilling can cause the gaskets to leak,but not right away.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.I really encourage responses so I can follow up properly as I know where you stand and asking someone else restarts all the explaining because we cannot see other 'Expert's' responses.Good luck,Greg

Transmission fluid and power steering fluid are the one in the same. They are both hydraulic fluid. Only the red dye. Your vehicle will operate fine on transmission fluid in the power steering pump. Just don;t put power steering fluid in your transmission

I would drain your power steering pump, even if I had to take it off and dump the fluid! Yes, you do need to use power steering fluid, but what will get you in the most trouble is if you mix your fluids because then they work against each other.

While some people will use transmission fluid in a power steering pump in an emergency, I always recommend they drain it out and use the proper fluid in the proper place.

I need to add some power steering fluid to the reservoir. I don't have any but I do have automatic transmission fluid. Can I use that?


Hi,
I would not recommend adding transmission fluid in your power steering pump.
Years ago one could get away with it.
If you do not have a Audi dealer near by,
Parts houses have a universal power steering fluid for sale.

No, it's usual for power steering fluid to be the same as transmission fluid. they both are hydraulic type fluid with similar system requirements.

Type of power steering fluid for 2001 toyota camry


Power steering fluid - Dexron 2 or 3 automatic transmission fluid. Yes transmission fluid. And while you are at it check the fluid level in the transmission.
Since you got the hood up, check the brake fluid, wiper fluid, radiator fluid, battery fluid, oil level.
