Check to see if you enough Steering Fluid. If the fluid was recently flushed, make sure they put right kind of fluid. I once had my fluid replace and they topped it with the wrong spec fluid. Had to reflush and put the correct fluid. Belt will usually make noise, not cause the steering to stiffen up. Hope this helps, let us know if a better answer comes along.
Not difficult to do. I had to do this for my 2002 neon. Go to your local parts store and buy a "power steering pressure switch"...should be around 20-25 dollars. It's located under the car near the driver side of the steering rack. All you need to do is unplug the wire, then use a 7/8" deep socket to remove the old switch. When installing the new one, use teflon thread seal tape on the threads and tighten snug but not too tight. Plug the wire back in and you're done. Afterwards, start the car and turn the wheel lock to lock a few times, then check for any leaking (the sensor itself can be seen from under the hood...look down behind the motor with a flashlight). Make sure the power steering fluid is at the correct level afterwards too. Good luck.
Your owner's manual lists the correct fluid. Sometimes it is listed on the P/S fill cap. If you remove all the fluid then use ATF+4 fluid. If you are only topping it off then use ATF+3. This is the same fluid that you use in the Automatic Transmission of your Neon.
Your Camry uses ATF ( Automatic Transmission Fluid). Your going to have to get the leak repaired, common cause is the high pressure hose is leaking and soon it will fail 100% and your going to lose your power steering. Worst is the ATF is flammable and if it hits a hot spot like the exhaust manifold, it will catch fire. Good luck and hope this helps, and don't let the fluid get too low. Low fluid in your steering pump will cause damage.
the power steering resivoir is located onto of the power steering pump, which has a pully driven by the belt(s). the resivoir is small with a cap the unscrews and a mini dipstick attached to the inside of the cap.
Hi if you have no power steering assist
check to see if the power steering shaft is broken
open the hood and the power steering pump is located on lower left of the engine
use a big screw driver or even your hand and try and pull the power steering pully towards the rad
if you can move the pully out then the power steering shaft is broken and you will need to replace the power steering pump
hope this helps you
hi there first the obvious is the belt tight and the fluid at max the car has not been in a smash?
so if the belt it tight and fluid at max and the car is has not been in a smash then try changing the fluid it can sometimes help with tight steering.
if that dont work you need to start looking at changing the rack but look at all the connections to it as you remove them as in the nuckel joint going to the steering shaft.
