Question about 1987 Toyota Camry
My old granny car was in a front-end accident many years ago. reservoir drains slowly while left parked. minimum fluid added alleviates groaning noises, but still steadily leaks. i'd like to pinpoint the leak and fix it myself please!
You have the steering pump,steering hoses
steering rack-- I guess
Somewhat easy to see & get at, except to replace
a rack, that most likely is leaking. Check behind the bellows
by outer tie rods for oil
I would change the rack & put on all new hoses on a car
You can pretty much know what is shot on a car that age
Your going to need to do suspension bushings,ball joints & all
to have a safe car
Pretty much a restoration project of the complete front end
Every time you run low on fluid you wear out the steering pump
a little more & have the groaning noise & part of it is a failed
steering rack that has worn & tightened up also

The best bet is its trans oil. The gearbox has crushable washers/gaskets, the bolts may just need to be tightened slightly to crush the gasket and seal.

YOU CAN BUY POWER STEERING OVERHAUL KIT. IF THEY STILL SELL THEM. BECAUSE NOW MOST VECHICLES YOU HAVE TO REPLACE WHOLE POWER STEERING PUMP ASSEMBLY. BUT CHECK AROUND TO SEE IS YOU CAN STILL BUY OVERHAUL KIT FOR POWER STEERING PUMP.
