Question about 1991 Toyota MR2

Where do you check the belt and where is the filling pot for the fluid?

    Sorry, the part about the "fill pot" somehow got erased..What it should have stated is this: "...Nor a belt, and there is no fill pot in the engine compartment"...The reservoir for the power steering fluid is on the right inner fender area, in the luggage compartment, at the front of the vehicle. You have to remove the spare tire and all of the plastic inner panels to see it.

    1991 MR2s do not have a power steering pump, nor a belt or a fill pot. It utilizes an electric motor, which is located under the front luggage compartment.

The fluid container is found on the left of the motor which is on your right facing motor. It should be marked but be prepared to wipe it off in order to see it. There a pull cap on top and filling it is while not running is the best. Good Luck!

Battery and break indicator showed up and power steering went out all at the same time


Are you sure the drive belt is still on the engine ?
The battery light usually comes on when the alternator is not charging the battery, and the power steering is also belt driven.
The brake warning light can come on when the brake fluid is low, but also when the battery light comes on.

I have 2004 ford focus and last night i got stock in the snow. after i got out power steering stoped working!


The snow may have knocked the belt off, on this model car it may only have one belt and if thats the case the battery or alternator light may also come on but is theres two belt then then power steering may be the only belt that came off. Open the hood and take a look at the belts and see if the belt came off, if the belt is still on then you may have broken a power steering line in which the fluid runs out and then you loose the power steering if thats the case dont drive the car to far you could damage the power steering pump. so look around for a belt off and check the power steering fluid, What normally happens is the snow piles up in the belt area and forces the belt off, hope this is helpful, good luck.

My cars warning light saying power steer is coming on at times and it doesnt let me turn the wheel what is the problem?


Either the belt is slipping pretty badly, or you are way-low on power steering fluid. You should really check both.

After I replaced the power steering pump and reservoir on my 2002 Jeep, I still get air in the system. Where could it be coming from?


Your problem could be a pressure side hose that has a rupture that only leaks in extreme conditions. Inspect to replace with new to repair problem. First make sure you have removed the pump caps off of the hose fittings. If ok, it appears you may have a stuck valve in the rack assembly. Replacing the rack should solve your problem. ------- The new pump should be self-bleeding by turning the wheels left and right. Let sit over night to release air bubbles, recheck fluid level.------ Check the tension of the drive belts on the pump, as they may be loose. The power steering pump and reservoir is located on the front of the engine driven by one of the fan belts. There is a removable cap on the top with a dipstick attached. With the engine off, fill this up to the full mark with power steering fluid. Replace the cap, start the engine and check for leaks. On the back of the pump are two hoses either one could be leaking. REPAIR PROCEDURE:
1. Wipe the power steering cap and area free of dirt. Remove the power steering cap.

2. Use a siphon pump to remove as much fluid as possible from the power steering fluid reservoir.

3. With a helper in the vehicle, raise the vehicle on an appropriate hoist.

WARNING :POWER STEERING FLUID, ENGINE PARTS, AND THE EXHAUST SYSTEM MAY BE EXTREMELY HOT IF THE ENGINE HAS BEEN RUNNING. DO NOT START ENGINE WITH ANY LOOSE OR DISCONNECTED HOSES. DO NOT ALLOW HOSES OR POWER STEERING FLUID TO TOUCH HOT EXHAUST MANI FOLD OR CATALYST.
4. Locate the power steering cooler attached to the crossmember support plate. Slide back the clamp and disconnect one of the two power steering return hoses at the power steering oil cooler and drain fluid in an appropriate container.
5. Have the helper turn the steering wheel back and forth quickly several times to force as much fluid as possible from the steering gear.
6. Reconnect the hose at the oil cooler using the original clamp.
7. Lower vehicle so the vehicle tires are not contacting the ground.
9. For proper fluid fill and bleeding air from the power steering system:

a. Fill the power steering reservoir to the top of the fill range using Mopar power steering fluid (ATF+4) p/n 05013458AA.

b. With the engine OFF and the vehicles tires off the ground, slowly turn the steering wheel back and forth (lock to lock) slowly 20 times to force fluid into the steering gear.

c. Fill the power steering reservoir to the top of the fill range.

d. Start engine and let run for a few seconds, then turn oft engine.

e. Check fluid level and add if necessary.

f. Start engine, and slowly turn the steering wheel lightly contacting the left and right stops.

g. Stop the engine and check fluid level. Add fluid if necessary.

h. Lower vehicle, start engine and slowly turn steering wheel lock-to-lock.

I. Stop engine and check fluid level. Add fluid if necessary.

j. If fluid is extremely foamy, allow vehicle to stabilize a few minutes, then repeat steps "i" and "j" until the fluid level remains constant after running the engine and turning the steering wheel from lock to lock.

10. Inform the vehicle owner/operator that a steering vibration may be noted for a few hundred miles until the air is completely removed from the steering system.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

My power steering has gone out.


Have checked if the belt is there on the power steering pump?
It could just be tht the belt has snapped thus the pump not functioning and thus the tough steering wheel!

You may have had a belt come off. Pop the hood and check the belts. Keep an eye on the engen temp. the belt also runs the water pump.

Steering hard /loosing pwer at 40-55mph


Take the car in for a new serpentine belt and tensioner right away before you destroy the engine. The alternator, power steering pump and waterpump are not turning right now because the belt has come off. The battery will die soon because it is not charging, and the engine will overheat and perform it's own little rendition of the china syndrome. When the red warning lights in the dash come on, it generally means; park it unless you're being shot at.

No power steering on my chrysler voyager


is this the 3.3 liter or the 3.8?

I know that there is 1 serpentine belt that runs all (incl. the PS pump) on the 3.8 liter. So if that belt
was missing, you would also be over heating, have no alternator charging, no ac (if equipped) as well as have no PS. If you see any belt at all (on the passenger side), then you are ok. The PS fluid resevoir is near the top and easily found. It has writing on the cap which also has a built in dipstick. Check the fluid level in the resevoir and fill it if nec. Are you hearing noises from the PS system with the fluids full? If so, you might need a new pump. Check for leaks too if the fluid was low, you might have a leaking hose or PS rack (hope not on the rack though $$)
