If u have the original owners manual it would show the location, but unfortunately most people throw them out, and u probably bought the car w/ no manual. So, the power steering pump is powered by a belt that spins a round pulley on the pump. There should be a screw off cap (about the same size as your oil fill cap on the engine) where u add fluid. So, look for this pump by looking at the belts where they attach to pulleys and spin the different components. If U could post several pictures I can help u find it. Find it asap, as u can damage the pump if u run it w/ low fluid.

1995 toyota tercel. Steering wheel is hard to turn and i dont see where i can put power steering fluid


Are you sure it has power steering? Many tercels did not. Without PS, the steering wheel will be more difficult to turn when standing still.

I had a '94 Tercel few years back, and it had no PS.

It has power steering. Why does it steer so hard?


Do you hear noises while turning the wheel at low speeds or stationary? If you hear a whining noise check the power steering fluid level. A low fluid level would make a whining noise as well as cause stiff steering. If you hear a squealing noise check the power steering belt tension. A slipping belt would cause stiff steering also. If you hear no abnormal noises check to make sure the power steering belt is there. If all of the above check out ok you may have a bad power steering pump, steering gear or a blockage in a pressure line.

Where do i refill the transmission fluid for 1995 toyota tercel


Most fills on front wheel drives is through a small opening through the transmission dipstick tube. Using a small funnel, fill partially, start car and run through all gears one at a time, then check fluid level and add, then run through gears again until the proper level has been attained. That's the easiest way. Standard transmission are through the fill cap/dipstick combo as well.

1995 toyota tercel made a clacking sound and stalled


SORRY but I need a lot more information than what you have given me.
Where did the clanking come from under the car /from the engine/from gear box/back or front wheels/etc, and what is it doing now when wont start and just clicks ,,do the dash lights go out ,,
Turn on head lights and then turn the key to start (do the lights go outand clicking still there)
If so it sounds like the problem is in the converter
So let me know ASAP Ron

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
