I have a power steering leak on my 1998 Toyota Camry.  I have been using over the counter stop leaking fluids, but it has not helped.  It leaks more during the cold weather as oppose to hot weather. Deme

I keep bursting rack & pinion boots, does that mean my power steering pump is bad


no, if you have power steering fluid leaking into the boot it means your power steering piston/rod/cylinder has leaking seals.
replace the cylinder (what you attached the boots to) or rebuild the packing.

Power steering fluid leak in 99 Toyota Corolla


look for split in the hard line where fluid is leaking. If you see split, change the line only. make sure power steering reservoir is filled and rack and pinion is full (charge with steering wheel left/right motion). You should be able to remove wheel and inside wheel panel to see power steering fluid shooting out of any hole. There is hydraulic pressure on the lines.

94 Camry steering hard to turn like it has no power steering. It has the rack replaced and steering knuckle replaced


Does the power steering have fluid in it. Is the belt on the pump. With it running take the cap off of the pump and see if fluid is moving around. If u feel the steering knucle is to tight u can also take the tie rod off and see if it turns free. Also go back to who fixed it and say its not right, Make it right. Most garages give 12 month or 12.000 mile warranty.

2002 power steering leak.. from drivers side behind engine.. looks like about in front of drivers feet.... a bracket is in the way to see real good from just looking behind drivers front wheel. cant see...


I am 99.9% sure you have a steering rack leaking, this is a very common problem with this vehicle. The easy way to check is to take a small pick and poke one of the ribs of the boot / dust cover of the rack. Being that this is a dust cover there should be no fluid drip out, if fluid is present replace the steering rack.

I have a toyota 1996 camry and I notice that it is very hard to steer and turn the steering wheels. i also notice that there was little or no power steering fluid in the container.


SR you just found the problem a leak in the power steering system, check the floor were you park the car every day, there steering fluid by the driver side the problem is the steering rack, there is fluid by the engine passenger side, pressure line, banjo fitting, return line, and also steering rack, the best thing to do is clean the oily area, refill reservoir drive it and check for a fresh leak.

There is power steering fluid dripping from the passenger side boot covering the rod that connects to the wheel. Could a simple replacement of the boot be the fix, or is there a problem with the main unit...


No, the boot only keeps dust out of the inner tie rod joint--it is not intended to hold back fluid. The rack will have to be rebuilt with new seals. Sorry. :o(

The boot on my left hand side of the power steering rack had ripped how do i get the steering rack of the 1989 toyota camry


are you talking about the drivers side trans-axle? if you are then it is the CV boot that is ripped, it is easier to replace the axle. Loosen lug nuts, jack car up, place on jack stands, remove tire, remove and suspend brake caliper, remove rotor, I believe it is like a 1 inch and 1/4 socket to remove the wheel bearing nut, the CV joint can be pushed through and then removed. Hope this helped

No power steering


Had the same problem if you fill up the power steering fluid, jack the car up off its front wheels turn the steering wheel side to side a few times...check the ground for any power steering fluid, if you notice a leak you will need steering rack reconditioned or just the boots replaced..also belt may just have snapped.
