    I have the same problem on my 02 Camry. In the last week the steering has gotten progressively tighter, although somewhat freeer depending on where the wheel is positioned. It takes effort to center the wheels coming out of a turn. The fluid was dark and changing it and adding Lucas hasn't helped.

2005 toyota sienna minivan awd sometimes had loud


Hello and thank you for asking me, the most common cause for this is a loose/slipping power steering belt so it should be inspected and adjusted or possibly replaced. This engine has two drive belts, one for the alternator and a/c and another one for the power steering, if one is worn or loose it's best to replace both belts. Let me kno wif you have any more questions or additional info.

Steering wheel


Have the belt checked. Your Tercel has one (or more, sorry I'm not sure) belt that spins the pulleys of different engine components.See if you can turn the wheel while someone looks at the belt. Does it seem to 'slip' or squeal, screech? One of the components is the power steering pump, another is the air conditioner. If the belt is slipping the engine components won't be 'powered', or in other words, they won't work properly. It sounds like it could be a problem with a belt, is there any unusual noise when turning the steering wheel when it becomes stiff? Did both problems occur at the same time? Please let me know so I can provide more info if needed. countrycurt0

Speedometer Stops


Most cars Speedometer cable connect to one of the front wheels, but you said your speedometer sometimes stop then your steering wheel will go stiff, I think you should fix or change your speedometer cable, maybe the cable broken inside. Fix it as soon as possible for your safety.

Speedometer cable has two parts, one is outside cable, mounted and connect to both speedometer and wheel.

The other one is an inside steel cable, outside cable protects the inside cable, because the inside cable turns as soon as you move the car. It is directly connect to the wheel gears and the speedometer inside.

If your car has speedometer cable, I think you need check it right away.

Your steering wheel sometimes stiff, you also need to check your power steering fluid level, sometimes cause this kind problem.

Hope this can help you and if you have more questions, please use whatever the Fixya allowed, contact me to discuss this matter and others. Thank you.
