Fixing power steering leaks in 2005 Toyota Highlander

The lines. you have 2.
high pressure and low pressure. combined, they cost around $400 at dealers but can be found cheaper online.
labor at a shop to replace both lines calls for 2.3 hours, so you will pay their cost per hour of labor.
plus shop fees and tax. (fees cover shop supplies like fluid, gloves, etc)
If the problem is the power steering pump itself, the average cost at shops for the part is $450 (part only) plus 1.6 hours of labor.

if the issue is the steering rack itself, you can find that part online for $350 on average.
If you just let the shop order the steering rack, they may hit you for $1,200-$1,400 just for the part, and labor times for that job is 4.2 hours.

Please note, the link I have attached may notbe the correct part for your toyota. You would have to search for the correct vehicle.
include engine size and other required info like "Toyota camry LE, 2.5L, front wheel drive"
Hope this helps.

Was told by dealer power steering rack needs replacing. I am not having any problems with my steering nor I have I seen any leaks. How do I know when something is wrong with the power steering rack?

  • Well, you would have a leak or troubles steering. I am curious as to why someone would recommend you replace something when you are having no problems with it. What was the reason the dealer offered you that information in the first place? Were you having an issue of some sort? In any case, if your not leaking fluid and you are having no issues steering and turning I say don't worry about it. If it was my car I wouldn't.

Leak in hose at what looks like a sensor or electrical connection in the hose running from resevoir to steering.need to know wut this part is please, to try n replace it and stop leak.thank you for any...

Sound like it is the high pressure power steering line that is leaking, or low pressure line. I would take it to Advance Auto tell them to look at what is leaking they will sell you the part needed. he high pressure line cost more then the low pressure line.

Can I open the power steering reservoir with the engine running? I cannot see the level from the outside of the reservoir. 1987 Audi 5000 CS Quattro

Sure, no problem. The fluid is not under pressure in the reservoir. Just be aware, do not overfill the reservoir, the fluid expands as it gets hot.

Need to stop leaking fluid from an o ring on power steering system

Good luck. We have just gotten my dad's '99 expedition home from the Ford dealer again. This started in June with the power steering leaking and making a screeching noise. He paid $550.00 and it still leaked. Four months later and numerous visits, the dealer said he would have to pay another $250.00 for an EVO ? part. Also, they wanted to charge him $45.00 for an INSPECTION FEE !!! to tell him that this was leaking and needed this part! We are writing to Ford Motor Company tomorrow to report this dealer for customer abuse. Hope you have better luck. By the way, go to an auto parts store and purchase the part you need - you will save a TON of money.

My 2007 TC has 27k miles. The dealer says the power steering fluid is dirty and needs to be exchanged.How is this possible?

That is the dumbest thing I have heard, most cars go their whole life without even checking the power steering fluid. I have never heard of anybody changing it, and never heard of it being dirty. But your car is brand new, and the dealer must be on drugs. But who am I ? Why would he say that anyway? Is the steering giving you trouble? Pump making noise? Leaking?
