SOURCE: Location of power steering reservoir

This pump sits down below tha alternator. If it does not have a remote resevoir than the resevoir sits on top of the pump. It is a pain to get to.

The reservoir should be located under the hood on the passenger side, above serpentine belt. Guide your eyes backwards towards the mid section of the engine on the passenger side. the small reservoir will have a small turn cap on top. (passenger side off vehicle)

SOURCE: Where is the Power steering Fluid located?

This is what it looks like:


  1. Fill pump with hydraulic fluid through intake line. Turn the pulley/shaft by hand until fluid comes out of pressure port.
Look underneath the car up at the driver's side of the car above your tie rods (or look at it from above). It is mounted to your steering gear.

SOURCE: Where is the power steering reservoir located on

Make sure that your vehicle is parked on a level surface and the engine is cool before you check fluid levels. Power steering fluid and other fluids read at different levels when warm instead of cool. Locate the power steering fluid reservoir. It is located under the hood of your Toyota Corolla on the passenger side next to the engine. The reservoir is connected to the power steering pump. Remove the cap and use the dipstick to check the fluid level. For the most accurate reading, clean off the dipstick with a rag first, then re-insert and remove for the fresh reading. Add automatic transmission fluid or power steering fluid approved for use in Toyota vehicles if the fluid is below the low level mark. Add fluid gradually to keep for over filling the reservoir.
this will help.thanks.

Constant whistle noise from power steering pump

I had a similar problem with my Lexus. There was no Power Steering fluid in the reservoir. It is located on the passenger side of the car under the hood by the firewall. Use ATF fluid, but make sure you get the right type. This is written on the lid and in the handbook. After filling, the noise went immediately.

Whats wrong with my is250 06 lexus steering its hard

You are possibly low on power steering fluid. Check the reservoir and top it up as needed. You will need to do this again after a short while, as air works its way out of the pipes.
Then you should think about why it got low to start with. It is possible the power steering gear has sprung a leak somewhere. A common place for that is the steering rack end seals.

Power steering just stopped working on 2006 lexus is250. Apparently has electric motor somewhere on suspension. What can I do to correct short of taking to dealer

I have this exact same problem with my 2006 IS 250 as well. It happened just last week and it was sudden; I pulled out of a parking lot and noticed the steering wheel was very hard to turn. I wonder if this is going to end up being another recall for toyota.

I have a 1995 lexus there a way to tighten the power steering pulley without removing it.

  • xus LS 400 and locate the power steering pump pulley, fluid reservoir and pump on the upper front driver side of the engine.
  • 2 Connect the pulley remove tool to the front of the power steering pulley. Brace the arms on the pulley tool on the **** of the pulley. Connect the metal key in the middle of the pulley tool to the nut in the middle of the pulley. Connect the power drill to the pulley tool and pull the trigger to remove the pulley securing nut. Remove the drive belt and the pulley.
  • 3 Position the drain container under the power steering pump. Remove the drain plug from the bottom of the pump using the metric ratchet set. Let the fluid drain from the pump into the drain container. Replace the drain plug to the bottom of the power steering pump.
  • 4 Remove the securing bolts from the right and left side of the reservoir and the pump using the metric ratchet set. Pull the pump upward and disconnect the hose from the bottom of the pump using the wrench. Pull the pump from the engine compartment.
  • 5 Lower the new power steering pump into the engine compartment. Reconnect the hose to the bottom of the power steering pump. Position the new power steering pump onto the engine. Replace the securing bolts the right and left side of the pump and reservoir. Tighten the bolts using the metric ratchet set.
  • 6 Replace the power steering pump pulley the opposite way that you removed it. Reconnect the drive belt.
  • Fill the power steering pump reservoir with fresh power steering fluid. Start the engine and rotate the steering wheel to circulate the new power steering fluid. I no i gave you directions on how to remove the whole power steering pump question is the pully loose or are you wanting to just change a belt good luck happy holidays

    I have a 1994 Lexus 400 with a power steering leak. What are my options, the power steering does really make any noise when its full. Is it worth replacing the whole thing will a remanufactured part or...

    Good morning,
    There are a few possible reason for your leak:
    1) check your rack for leaks by the dust boots

    2) check your power-steering reservoir return line for leaks.( over time they tend to split and/or crack)

    3) check your radiator for milky appearance (if this is your issue - lots of work ahead).
