SOURCE: Poer steering fluid is leaking. Fan runs slow

Check power steering rack. on the camarys its alittle more common than most cars. poke a hole in the boot and watch for a leak. Nothggn should come out of there. If you have fluid coming from the boots then your internal seals are leaking on the rack. a small hole will not hurt the rack if nothing comes out.

Also check your power steering pump shaft. sometimes the seal will leak
.
I think your over heating problem may be a different problem all together.

Hopefull that helps.

If it is getting hot when you stop - it could be a bad fan motor..
If it gets hot while moving - it could be a bad thermostat or a sensor..
Dont allow it to get to hot or it will cause costly damage to the motor..

How do I add fluid for an convertible top toyota celica 1992


There used to be a long- running joke among auto forums and clubs about advising someone to check one's "blinker fluid", if having trouble with their turn signals not working... So you can see the quandary you have put me in: what kind of fluid exactly are we talking about here? . I am so-so familiar with celicas, owned a pretty decent riding '89 (or '87, maybe) model for a short while, ran smooth as ice down the interstate at 80 mph on the initial ride home, but it was def. a beater- had seen better days by the time I bought it for less than $400...yes, better days...8 months later it went to a shadowy grave, due to clipping a wild animal at night. I have no regrets.
If it is conventional fluid to any under hood part, it makes no difference between a convertible and a coupe. The celica generation that included your 1992 model, was the one most enthusiasts favored, on a celica forum I once joined. They sure made fun of Honda owners- calling the accord a grocery-getter...

i would replace thermostat and also check to see if fan motor is running. Best way to check fan is to turn on the defrost and fan should kick on. flushing radiator would help and also check for leaks in the coolant system. hoses,heater core,waterpump. Hope this help and good luck

My 1984 chev s10 blazer 4x4 2.8ltr is going thru up to 2-3 quarts of transmission fluid a day. I'm a single mom with little resources please tell me where to look for possible leaks


First, take a look underneath with the engine running (be careful as the exhaust pipe is very hot, and, don't reach up where the fan is). A leak that severe is usually a cooling line (there are two that go from the trans up to the radiator) or from the converter seal (inside the bellhousing where the trans meets the back of the engine) The first isn't too expensive to repair, the second means trans removal and costs a lot.
Also check the transmission itself as the pan gasket or the side linkage seal can also leak.
Once you find the leak, you can decide what to do about it. A leak that large should not be hard to locate. If you see a lot of smoke at the tailpipe, the other way you can loose that much fluid is if the vacuum control on the side of the transmission is bad. then, you won't see anything on the ground but will be burning it in the engine. Only other place you can loose fluid is into the radiator in which case you will need to replace the radiator.
In any case, you will destroy your transmission if you continue to drive it leaking that badly.
I'm hoping that the leak will be in one of the lines.
Good luck!!
