Question about 2001 Toyota Tacoma
Toyota Tacoma, 4x4, 1999, has a severe power steering fluid leak on actuator rod under the truck. I have kept refilling it because as it started out as a drip, then progressively worse until full drain. I get the impression there is maybe too much pressure and no relief from the pump, so it is leaking at fittings & gaskets on the hydraulic horizontal power rod that pushes the front wheels to steer.
I am wondering if the whole horizontal rod needs to be replaced; something else specific; or the pump? I do not want to drive it around to places for estimates.
It sounds like tour power steering rack and pinion may be leaking this is what you call the actuator rod.
