Fixing power steering leaks in 2005 Toyota Highlander

The lines. you have 2.
high pressure and low pressure. combined, they cost around $400 at dealers but can be found cheaper online.
labor at a shop to replace both lines calls for 2.3 hours, so you will pay their cost per hour of labor.
plus shop fees and tax. (fees cover shop supplies like fluid, gloves, etc)
If the problem is the power steering pump itself, the average cost at shops for the part is $450 (part only) plus 1.6 hours of labor.

if the issue is the steering rack itself, you can find that part online for $350 on average.
If you just let the shop order the steering rack, they may hit you for $1,200-$1,400 just for the part, and labor times for that job is 4.2 hours.

Please note, the link I have attached may notbe the correct part for your toyota. You would have to search for the correct vehicle.
include engine size and other required info like "Toyota camry LE, 2.5L, front wheel drive"
Hope this helps.

My van is having a hard time turning, would this be the power steering pump going out and if so how can I fix my 1998 Mercury villager

It could be or the steering rack . The power steering system uses a CII type power steering pump (3A674) and a power rack and pinion steering gear.

If you never replaced either of these parts before suggest you take to a ASE certified repair shop .
Pump Flow and Pressure Tests Before performing pump flow and pressure test, complete the following checks for conditions which could cause loss of power assist. Take corrective action if necessary.
  1. Check power steering oil reservoir (3A697) for proper fluid level.
  1. Check tires for correct air pressure.
  1. Check drive belt (8620) for proper tension.
  1. Check power steering pump (3A674) for correct model and vehicle application.
  1. Check for correct size power steering pump pulleys (3A733) on power steering pump and engine.
  1. Check entire system for damage. Replace parts, if necessary.
If the above items are correct, or have been corrected, and the loss of assist still exists, test power steering pump flow and pressure to determine whether the trouble is in the power steering pump , power rack and pinion steering gear or hoses.

What type of oil to used for power steering

Your owners manual is the best choice there, to check
for the correct P/S Fluid

Now Hondas have special fluid for trans & special fluids
for power steering

They are one of a few the you can not try something generic
or something that says for honda

All power steering fluids are vehicle specific & I would never
buy or use any auto parts store brands, regardless of the label

For the Trans you pretty much have to go to the dealer for fluid
& having once owned a trans repair shop,you should add Lubegard
& no other brand

To your question--The Power Steering --- I really do not know the
answer, but I do know that at the auto parts store they have Lubegard Power Steering Additive in a yellow bottle with some purple on it, just for Honda

I would suggest you flush the system every 3 years,on all your vehicles,& to be safe, get the power steering fluid at the dealer,one quart is enough & add the Lubegard 6 or 10 oz

It has to do with a steering issue, when driving car on straight stretch of road , it stays straight, no swerving at all on straight road, . But, when i make a turn at intersection or go around a curve on...

If it is trying to drive you into the kerb it is called oversteer. If it seems as if it doesn't feel like going round the corner at all it is called understeer. It has to do with the angles of your wheels or that your shock absorbers are worn. You need to have the wheel alignment, camber and castor and shock absorbers checked. If there is a bigger problem they will pick it up when they do the checks.

Popping Sound in Steering Gear - 94 F150

this is a guess but the inner tie rod and tie rod end (you have one of each on each side of the truck), wear out and make a loud clunk, mostly when changing direction, but also on starting & stopping. ABout a $200 repair including a front end alignment.

Call at least 3 shops for an estimate including your Ford dealer.
