The power steering pump is one of the devices that the fan belts operate. Follow all of the belts and note the pullys they run over. One of these devices will have two hoses about 1" in diameter comming out of it. Typically this is also where you fill the fluid when it is low, but not always. If you fill the fluid at a container on the side of the engine compartment, it will have a hosee that runs down to this PS pump as well.
Check for wetness along the lines especially at the terminal end of each line whre they meet the pump and where they meet the power steering box or rack. You may have to get under the car for this. If your car has a steering rack (about 2 feet long and three iN in diameter, look for fluid leaking at either end of the rack You can but rebuilt racks and have them installed by most garages. If that is the case have it done byy a garage that also does front end alignments as some adjustment in this are my be required

Good Luck

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.

Power steering fluid


Checking the power steering fluid level at least once a month is a good idea, since as components in the high pressure system wear out, the possibility of leaks increases. Always stay alert for changes in steering wheel operation. If you suddenly find it hard to turn the wheel, check the steering fluid immediately.
Steps:
Step 1:Apply the parking brake and place the transmission in "Park" (automatic) or "Neutral" (manual).
Step 2:Check the level of the steering fluid in the reservoir. If your car is equipped with a see-through plastic tank, compare the level with the markings on the side the container. Other systems are equipped with a dipstick inside a plastic tube, or have a dipstick mounted on the reservoir cap.
Step 3:Pull the dipstick or remove the reservoir cap, and wipe the dipstick with a clean shop rag. Insert the dipstick or replace the cap and remove it again to check the fluid level.
Step 4:
Make sure the level is within the crosshatched area on the dipstick or at the "Full" mark. If necessary, add steering fluid.
Step 5:
Place a small funnel or a funnel with a flexible hose on the dipstick tube or reservoir opening to add fluid.
Hope this helped your troubles!

Power steering dont work to left or right


To find out witch it is,pump or rack and pinion,break loose the presure line on the power steering pump with a wench.Start the car and turn the steering wheel back and forth,you may need to loosen the nut on the power steering hose two or three turns to get the fluid to shoot out.It should come out pretty forceful.If it doesn`t,then replace the pump.If it does come out really powerful,replace the rack and pinion.

Poer steering fluid is leaking. Fan runs slow


Check power steering rack. on the camarys its alittle more common than most cars. poke a hole in the boot and watch for a leak. Nothggn should come out of there. If you have fluid coming from the boots then your internal seals are leaking on the rack. a small hole will not hurt the rack if nothing comes out.

Also check your power steering pump shaft. sometimes the seal will leak
.
I think your over heating problem may be a different problem all together.

Hopefull that helps.

Power steering


Noticed this old post, here's what to do-Your leak is most likely a hose or your steering rack. Here's a way to determine where the leak is: to locate it can be tough, because the fluid is blown around as u drive, making it hard to detect where the source is. Jack up the car, place on safety stands so u won't get crushed underneath. Block the tires so the car can't move .Get a bottle of baby powder, shoot it all over the wet spots under the engine compartment to totally absorb the fluid. Start the car and check for leaks, it should be easy to figure out where the fluid is coming from, as the white powder will show the pink fluid drips easily. U might have to apply powder a couple of times to narrow down the exact leak. Let me know how u make out. Curt
