Question about 2004 Toyota Sienna
I have had no problems until the cold weather. I was parked to gas up at a gas station with a -25 wind chill. I got back in and started to drive with hard steering. It became manual instead of power. I had to drive it like that for another 6 hours!
Does that mean I have to buy a hold new power steering box? Did I do more damage by driving it?
Is it ok if I continue to drive it till the garages are open on Monday? How much am I looking at for cost, plus, can I fix it myself? I am worried in this extremely cold weather! Please, let me asap, thank-you much.

Rear main crank seals are very difficult and time consuming to replace. The seal doesn't cost that much - it is the labor/tiime it takes because --- you've got to take the whole car apart --- that is both
front CV joints have to come out -- then the tranny has to come out - I have a 1996 Camry and it has an irritating rear main seal at 147,000 miles and I have not had it fixed because the shops tell me it will cost around $650 to $800 for them to do it --- $1200 is pretty excessive for that job!
Your power rack and steering is not so hard -- most shops in this area would charge $650 max for that job including the price of the new rack and pinion. Pretty easy job -- half the cost is labor - the other is for parts.

My screen is showing both a 2005 and a 2000 model Focus. Since you have been waiting for an hour or more I will try to help.
There was a recall on the 2000 Models and it is extended the TSB# is 03n01. But you need help in a parking lot. Your woman must adapt to the conditions and not expect the engine to IDLE with her foot OFF the pedal. If you put in the additive I can tell you it works and when it works the bottle use to say to REV the engine until all of the white smoke stopped.
The moisture is going to stall that engine out at idle, she should keep it running about 1500 RPM until it warms up. There is also a possibility that the MAP sensor in the Air intake is dirty or wet. It is a delicate device and only Electrical cleaner is recommended, no choke cleaner, no brake cleaner. WD40 may or may not work. It leaves a residue which may collect dust, but you can use Electric cleaner to remove the WD40 later.
Would like to know the outcome of this case and I hope my solutions were of help to you.
