Rack and pinion is worn or steering box

Testimonial: "I have been advised that the steering fluid might need changing...probably never been done in its 100k miles...that seems possible as the problem disappears when hot"

Why is my bentley turbo R (1986) difficult to start when it has been running and then left for circa 30 minutes or more? It will go but turns over about 20 times first.

I had the same problem with a 1989 RR Silver Spirit.
It would start good when cold, but not when it was hot.
The problem was the fuel accumulator, after a new one was fitted the problem was gone.
It is a "Bosch" part and is available from almost any parts store.

I have a 1989 Toyota Supra Turbo that just started making a high pitch noise. Hard to tell where it's coming from. Almost like a steering pump. Any suggestions? Wish I had more to share and help narrow it...

it sounds like you may have a leak on the intake air system or the turbo has a fault.
You don't state your skills level so I am reluctant to dispense advice that you may not be familar with.

A simple test for airleaks on the inlet / intake system would be to start the car, (parking brake applied and trans in P / N or neutral in a manual trans.) Visually check the intake system for broken clamps, damaged hoses, especially the air hose connected to the turbo. A small leak will produce a very evident "whistle". If the turbo has covered a lot of miles, the compressor wheel and turbine blades may be in contact with the housing, due to worn bearings. Turbos spin in excess of 100,000RPM so it doesnt take much to throw them off, as it were. The wastegate should also be checked for correct operation.

You mentioned steerring pump. Slack the drive belt to the PAS pump. If the noise is not evident when that is done, then you have pinpointed the problem.

How do I remove and check the fuse box on a 1992 bentley turbo r? the fuel pump fuse is heating up and melting. I need to find where the trouble is.

If the fuse is becoming quite hot, the problem likely lives in the pump motor itself. Replace the fuel and relay together to avoid any further issues. Fuel pressure is critical on these models, so please heed to caution when buying one aftermarket.
