Question about 2002 Toyota Avalon
Steerin wheel doesn't want to turn all the way, even after pwr steering fluid added.
The belt is loose.
the pump is bad
the fluid is full of air. read the FSM
read the steps to purge air from P/S system.
so why was it low this fluid, it should not have been.
my guess you mean its hard to turn, no power assist.
when P/S fails it still works 100% manually , just harder.
is it singing to you, that is air bubbles, in the loop.

It sound's like the power steering pump has gone bad and needs to be replaced, As the pick up truck being 18 years old, you may want to invest in a power steering pump from the salvage yard to save you some money. But if you like to get a rebuilt pump, you can go to Auto Zone and they can get you a steering pump and give you the step by step to replacing the pump. Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: No power steering
Ok here ya go jack up the front end and secure it from falling. Then with engine off turn full left and right, have the key on far enough to get the steering lock off. If it turns fine start the truck and do it again look for any leaks and listen for any weird sounds. Make sure the steering fluid is full before you do this. If there is a issue both off and on, engine that is, that's a good sign that it's your stearing gear. If it's only when you have engine running the it's ether your pump not pumping or your power steering portion of you steering gear. One way to check your pump is to take the out flow hose off and make sure you have good flow out of it with the engine running, don't do this for to long. Just long enough to see if it works. Well I hope this helps.

IS the belt tight? Turning while standing still is the hardest to do and puts the most strain on the pump and can cause the belt to slip. Could be the pump,like you said too.

No fuse, sorry. You likely have a bad pump. To test the pump, if you can squeeze the return line to the pump when the engine is running, the pump should wine.
