Question about 1995 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

Struggling up mountains

I just recently had the power steering belt to my 1999 toyota camry replaced by the oil chaning place who suggested I get it done. I drove from Michigan to Tenessee. My car was fine on the way down there. I checked all fluids before heading back and noticed that the oil changing place did not fill up my transmission fluid. I did this myself. On the way back (up the mountains), my car was struggling. Having it on cruise control, it struggled to go back up the mountains and made a chiming noise before it kicked into gear. Is my transmission slipping?

You could have accidentally overflowed the transmission fluid. That would cause problems

We have a 1997 toyota camry, my daughter has been driving it and was checking the wrong dip stick, hense the engine needed to be rebuilt due to running w/ no oil. the mechanic replaced the seals, pt head...


I would think that the shop would have seen a problem with the belt, but you never know. You might think of that when you consider the oil use, my best guess is that whom ever rebuilt the engine installed the piston rings up side down. That would make it use the oil. The power steering fluid must be leaking and could be many things but sense you just had the engine out I would look around the lines were they attach to the pump, also some times there will be some oil use after an overhaul until the piston rings seat but this seams like to much oil use for that better go have a long talk with your shop...

The steering just became much harder to turn while


1. Check if the belt on the power-steering pump is not slipping. Replace belt if so.

2. Check for oil leaks (if yes, there is air in system).

Steering wheel hard to turn on my 1989 toyota camry


power steering belt broken or fell off, or the pump is out of oil. The pump is down on the right hand side (passenger) between the fire wall and the engine. You should be able to see if the belt is still on. Check the resevoir for oil. It is on the same side. It's a little plastic pot with a dipstick. Let me know how you make out.

Broken power steering belt


no your p/s belt just takes is spun by the crank shaft. if its not making noise when you turn the key, then you should check the fuses under the dash and under the hood for ign one of those might be bad.
