SOURCE: Type of power steering fluid for 2001 toyota camry

Power steering fluid - Dexron 2 or 3 automatic transmission fluid. Yes transmission fluid. And while you are at it check the fluid level in the transmission.
Since you got the hood up, check the brake fluid, wiper fluid, radiator fluid, battery fluid, oil level.

Eventhough the level is right, the fluid might need replacing (every 3~5 years and 50.000-100.000 miles).

If its the electronic unit,check the main fuses near the battery,also check the wiring connectors at the powersteering pump for loose or corroded plugs.If alls ok,you will need a diagnostic machine to read out what trouble codes are in the units memory.good luck.

1999 Volkswagen Polo 1.6i Classic steering very stiff and noisy


May have a bad steering pump or you are low on power steering fluid. Also check to see if your belt is in good and snug condition. If you can remove the belt, check the pulley that runs your power steering pump

Power steering fluid for vw polo 1.4 1999


Hi, it is a mineral power steering oil. not a transmission oil or dextron 2 or 3. Top up oil is available from the dealership network in 1 litre bottles. It is green in colour. Most european brands use the same eg BMW/ AUDI/SKODA/SEAT.

Hi i've got a polo 1.9tdi my power steering light is on and i can't hardly turn my steering wheel please help me i don't know what to do


Likely to be lack of power steering fluid. Top it up with approved fluid from an autoparts store then turn the wheel from full lock to full lock a few times. Lack of fluid normally means a seal leak on the shaft that connects the two steering arms. You may be able to rectify this easily at a mechanic but look for fluid under the car first. It is usually red> lots = big leak. cant find any means topping up the reservoir may solve the problem.

Check that the belt is tight on the alternator and the power steering pump. If it slips, that could cause the light on the dash ( a charge light) and the lack of power steering assist.

Good luck on this repair.

Power steering


Check whether there is any damage to the steering rack.
If not, it will be a jammed valve in the pump.
you will not be able to fix it youself if it is the pump.
Has the power steering fluid gotten low and trapped some air in the pipes?
