Question about 1992 Toyota Pickup
I was driving my 1992 Toyota Pickup when the power steering suddenly failed as I was making a right turn. I quickly pulled over and shut off the engine. I checked the fluid level (fine) and peeked at the belts (no obvious problems). I got back in, started it up, and the power steering was working again, and continued to work for the rest of my ride home (5 miles or so). What could be going on?

if only loosened belt then you should be hearing those squeecking noise. if there are leaks at the end of racks then it should not be a heavy steering too. its a good chance its your pump.

There are sensors that control steering effort (variable assist) and also valving in some cases, one of these has a problem, I would have the system tested to see what the fault is before it developes a problem u can feel.

Sounds like you have an intermittent electrical problem. Check your positive battery wire going into your fuse box the connection becomes loose. I have seen 2 or 3 Toyota pickups have the a similar problem. Also check Battery connections and the ground cable.
If your pickup has a loose battery cables and/or wires it can not charge to it full potential no matter how new your alternator or your battery. Try turning on your head lights and wiggling your battery wires if the lights go dim or flicker, chances are that wire is loose or has a bad connection.

I would think that the power steering and the tranny are two different systems, unless on a land cruiser they are some how connected. If the tranny is low on fluid, then yes it will affect the tranny ( i.e. not shifting, not going into gear, etc). Have you checked the fluid level of the tranny. That would be the first thing to check out. Also, the belt that goes to the power steering pump - does the belt operate anything else on the engine. I would check that out also.
( I'm posting my comments to you again, since I responded under "clarification", but I really like those thumbs up's, so if my solution was helpful- Please rate! And I'm real glad you figured out the problem. Just to play it safe, you may want to add an ADDITIVE to the tranny, such as LUCAS, to help the tranny out a bit since it ran low on fluid. Good Luck!
