    I have a 2002 Toyota Avalon with the exact same problem as reed4129. Adding fluid was not the solution for mine. I am going to have the pump checked next.

Steering wheel stiffens when turning


Sounds like your power steering pump is low on fluid or worn out. Eventually it will just get so you have to fight to even turn it. Mine went that way and I had to replace the power steering pump.

My key wont turn in the ingnition of my 1998 toyota avalon


Hi, the problem you could be having is with the steering lock, if this has locked in a funny position it can be hard to get it to unlock.

what you need to do is when you put the key in try turning the steering wheel left and right as far as it will go whilst turning the key to on position, now its going to be hard to move so you will need to use some force turning the wheel try turning it left whilst turning the key forwards and backwards and the same turning right, once the steering wheel has moved this should allow the key to turn and you will be able to start you car.

let me know if it fails to work then i can assist you further ok

plz rate this solution as i have got a whole page of posts that have gone unrated, thanks
