Question about 2006 Suzuki Forenza

Steering wheel followed by an exclamation mark

I have been driving my mother in law's car while mine is in the shop. I was headed home this morning and noticed the steering wheel followed by an exclamation mark sign by the speedometer. The car has been driving fine as far as I can tell, but like I said I am only borrowing it so I don't really know if the way it is driving is normal or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Most likely you are low on steering fluid. A small fix if you know what to do. There is a power steering pump under the hood. It has a reservoir with a cap on it. Unscrew the cap, check the little dipstick to see if it has sufficient fluid. If not, find out which type of steering fluid to use. Check the owner's manual, a mechanic or an auto parts store. Then simply fill it to the mark on the dipstick, replace the cap, smile, and you're done.

By the way, the power steering pump is located near the front left of the engine compartment. A belt connects it to a pulley at the front of the engine. Remember not to leave the cap off!

Fixing power steering leaks in 2005 Toyota Highlander


The lines. you have 2.
high pressure and low pressure. combined, they cost around $400 at dealers but can be found cheaper online.
labor at a shop to replace both lines calls for 2.3 hours, so you will pay their cost per hour of labor.
plus shop fees and tax. (fees cover shop supplies like fluid, gloves, etc)
If the problem is the power steering pump itself, the average cost at shops for the part is $450 (part only) plus 1.6 hours of labor.

if the issue is the steering rack itself, you can find that part online for $350 on average.
If you just let the shop order the steering rack, they may hit you for $1,200-$1,400 just for the part, and labor times for that job is 4.2 hours.

Please note, the link I have attached may notbe the correct part for your toyota. You would have to search for the correct vehicle.
include engine size and other required info like "Toyota camry LE, 2.5L, front wheel drive"
Hope this helps.

How come my car won't shift into park


The steering wheel can be in a bind to prevent the park lever from moving. Try working the steering wheel at the same time you try to move the shift stick. My mother-in-law had the very same problem.
