I suspect the pump is not leaking but a hose that goes to the pump. Either way this is a difficult job. Almost everything that is on the pump side of the engine must be removed first to get access to the pump and it's hoses. Good Luck.

Power steering fluid leaking. change hose? change pump? Re clamp?


If the hose itself is leaking (not the connection/end) , replace the hose. If the hose is more than 5 years old, I'd probably just replace it. If it's the low pressure hose (return) and it's leaking at the junction, you can probably replace the clamp. If it's the high pressure hose (with the machine-formed hose ends) then replace the hose - a clamp is unlikely to withstand the pressure and you don't want to take the chance of it blowing off when you're turning.

Leaking power steering pump


Yes Mistydogg, the solution posted here is absolutely correct. And be sure to remove (as much as possible) of the factory power steering fluid from the reservoir and replace with automatic transmission fluid (ATF). Do this a few times during regular oil changing intervals to cycle-out the original factory fluid. The 1995 Camry was shipped from the factory with clear/typical power steering fluid, however (strangely) the factory service manual calls for replacing with automatic steering fluid. Well, it's actually not so strange. ATF has a seal swelling effect that will stop the leaking within your entire power steering system - fast. I ran into the same problem in a big way. The dealer wanted to replace my pump and rack at 50k miles at the remanufactured parts plus labor price of $1,200. I am leak-free today on my same pump and rack at 241k miles having switched over to ATF. Enjoy your great car!

I have a leak in my Power Steering fluid as well in my 1990 Toyota Celica, how do I identify where the leak is? - It's a fast leak, I filled it up less than 24 hours ago and it's almost completely empty, also when I make turns it makes an odd sound, which I assume is because of the leak... help please!!
