SOURCE: steering wheel

Have the belt checked. Your Tercel has one (or more, sorry I'm not sure) belt that spins the pulleys of different engine components.See if you can turn the wheel while someone looks at the belt. Does it seem to 'slip' or squeal, screech? One of the components is the power steering pump, another is the air conditioner. If the belt is slipping the engine components won't be 'powered', or in other words, they won't work properly. It sounds like it could be a problem with a belt, is there any unusual noise when turning the steering wheel when it becomes stiff? Did both problems occur at the same time? Please let me know so I can provide more info if needed. countrycurt0

SOURCE: Toyota steering too light

The only way I know of to bleed a power steering system is to turn the steering wheel from lock to lock (all the way to one side and then turn all the way to the other side) 3 or 4 times. that will bleed all the air out of the system. You might have had a leak for a longer than that you realized and by fixing the hose the power steering works VERY good and you are no long used to how easy it once worked.

SOURCE: Toyota echo steering is very stiff

Look at the amount of power steering fluid in your power steering pump.
If it is low, then add until a normal level.

If you don't know how to check or add fluid correctly get help in doing so.

If this does not help, then have the Power Steering Pump Tested by a mechanic.

I have 93 Lexus Ls400 when I hit the gas it makes a screaching sound as thou it needs a belt.Someone told me that it could be the buschings in the alternator. What could be my problem?

first look at belt if loose worn cracked glazed or just plain old and worn out change because a bad belt makes noise when slipping on pulleys ------if belt is good than look at belt tensioner ---- and pulleys to all components ---and listen to the area when vehicle running for grinding or squeal

My Toyota Yaris refuses to start after the key fob fell apart whilst starting yesterday. It is as though the immobiliser is on partially or fully. The electrics are fine and the started motor seems

Most likely there could be three reasons for your problem:
1. Gear selector switch on the transmission has poor connections at P and N. (Adjust or replace the selector switch assembly, if it is automatic transmission).
2. Starter motor assembly needs overhauling/ repair.
3. Harness wiring.
Even though if the immobilizer system is armed, the starter should run normally but the car would't start.

Can installing a fan belt incorrectly effect the shift gear

I think they're messing with you,Fan belt has nothing to do with your transmission linkage,something got loosened up and is out of adjustment, or your cable is broke that operates the indicator .Take it to a different shop hopefully far away from the other guys.

The belt is loose and squealing

The belts are stretched! I have the same problem! You have to replace them, for I was told you cant tighten them, I drove mine for over 2 years like that!
