I have a leak with my power steering fluid I think, it goes really hard for me to turn, then I put the fluid in and it easy a week later or two I am adding more in there. I dont drive it daily its a back...

Power steering leaking could be just a hose. You can find leak by placing a cardboard sheet under car overnight and tr+ace where it is coming from. If not a hose, it will be.....the rack and pinion system. Can replace with used if you are mechanically inclined. But check hoses first.
Turn signals not working could be a fuse, relay or your control on the steering column. 05 Scion is old enough to be the control on the steering column. You can buy the control(turn signal arm on the side of the steering column) at a parts store and replace very easily by taking off the housing around steering column and you will see how to dissasemble and replace in about 5 minutes.

How do I replace a power steering gear box in 1971 chevy c10

In general terms, its fairly easy.
You need to disconnect the pitman arm, the steering coupler to the column, the ps hoses, and unbolt it from the frame.
The tricky part is getting the steering wheel and pitman arm aligned so the steering wheel is centered when you put it back together.
Some are notched so you have to put it back one way, some are not.

I have a problem with a very over sensative power steering the allingment is good. ( It is a motor home ) It is very unpleasant to try to steer the vehicule in a strait line .

I'm betting its a 4500 or 5500 chassis. Maybe not but, I can almost guarantee its the "draglink".
This is the large diameter(at least 1 inch) steel rod that connects the steering box arm to the left front spindle/hub assembly. It has balljoints on each end, and one, if not both are shot. You can check this yourself with a helper. Take you 10 seconds! Find the draglink, and have your helper turn the steering wheel 1/4 turn each way with the key OFF. Have him rock the steering back and forth in this manner while you watch the balljoints on the draglink. If you see ANY, yes ANY movement in either or both balljoints, REPLACE the draglink.

Also, watch the column where it connects the steering box and the arm. Movement on both should be just about the same. If there is a pronounced delay between the column rotation and arm movement, the steering box may be worn as well.

Either, or a combination of these two items will make it very hard to steer in a straight line!!

Installed new wiper motor, delay board, and checked fuses on 98 monte carlo and wipers still dont work. Washer pump no working either unless i jump power to it. I checked wiring to motor and pump. Seems ok

Most likely, you can check the multi-function switch on the steering column, They generally will go out after several years of use. To replace this, you must first remove all steering column covers. Refer to A Haynes Manual if you are unsure of how to proceed with this. After that, you must remove the multi-function switch from the column, it should be secured by one or two bolts, or on some models simply a retaining clip(plastic) that mounts it to the steering column. Replace with an direct OEM replacement, or its equivalent(available at Autozone) and this should take care of the problem. After replacing the relays, fuses, and the motor, the only thing that it can be is the multi-function switch(other than faulty wiring, in which you will need an Ohm meter to detect). Any other questions feel free to ask.

How do i install a blinker switch?

If you mean the flasher, the hardest part is finding it. It is usually under the dash near the driver but sometimes on the passenger side under dash. The book says yours is mounted to the steering column. To install, just pull it out or off the connector and push in new one.

I believe yes, you can replace just the switch. You will need to unplug the wire harness to the switch from under the dash/column area and fish it out, and the steering wheel will need to be removed.

2003 Dodge Durango clunking noise in front end can be felt in steering column ball joints,tie rod ends, control arm bushings,sway bar bushings replaced,shocks replaced steering column bushings checked all...

With the information given this is not a sure solution. Questions that need to be asked is when does this happen, turning at slow speedm high speed, when hitting a pot hole etc? Since you have replaced a lot of things already, assuming you have NEW good quality parts so you did not replace bad parts with new bad parts i would definitelu check the pitman arm. This runs from the stering gear to the tierod. It can give you some good clunks while steering, especially at low speed when there is a lot of resistance. Check it by having someone turning the steering wheel when watchin/feeling it.
