I have a power steering leak on my 1998 Toyota Camry.  I have been using over the counter stop leaking fluids, but it has not helped.  It leaks more during the cold weather as oppose to hot weather. Deme

SOURCE: Car turns fine to the right,VERY hard to the

I would suggest changing the flexible brake line that goes to the right wheel. They corrode where the bracket is clamped on that bolts to the frame. There is more pressure going to the wheel than coming back to the resevoir so the pressure won't release on the caliper causing it to pull to the right. Might be a good idea to replace both sides while you are at it.

05 accord makes a whinning noise when i accelarate gets louder then stops when i am stopped


Sounds like low power steering fluid or air in the steering system.To fill up and get the air out faster,it's easier to elevate the front wheels.Fill up the resevoir,and turn the wheel full left,wait 30 seconds,then turn slowly to the right,wait 30 seconds,repeat(and keep an eye on the fluid level)(note:do these lock to lock turns with the engine off-this allows air bubbles to rise up in the resevoir and dissipate,instead of churning through the lines and steering rack)

Whinning when you turn the wheel. filled the power steering fluid seems to be leaking


Check your hoses first - if cracking replace
Next check your resevoir is the leak coming from where the hose connects to or is the leak coming from the resevoir/pump. If the hoses are good you will need to replace the pump/resevoir. The wineing noise indicates low fluid. Too much fluid would cause foam at the resevoir

Where do I fill the power steering resevoir


At the pump itself, on top there is a cap with a built in dip stick. Turn cap counterclockwise and fill to manufacturers specification. Place cap back on and turn clockwise untill it stops.

My power steering resevoir was empty. I noticed it because my steering was suddenly stiff this morning. Nothing in my manual said anything about a particular type of PS fluid so I went to Walmart and...


You will have to look where it is leaking from and get it fixed. Running without power steering fluid will eventually burn you power steering pump out and yes if you power steering is that hard to turn when out of fliud, it is dangerous.

Power steering leak making loud buzzing sound more loud when turning


The power steering leak is creating bubbles in your power steering pump which gets strained more when turning, which causes it to be louder when turning. If you know where your leak is, then fix that, then try to bleed your ps system by filling up with the cap off the resevoir and turning the steering wheel max left to max left with trans fluid. if the noise is still there then your ps pump needs to be replaced along with the ps vsv located on the side of the pump.

There is a hole right on top of the power steering pressure hose in my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It squirts fluid up visibly when the engine is on and the wheels are turned. How do I replace this hose?...


Mark the hose at the pump so you'll know which end goes there on the new one. Take the old one with you to compare to the new one. Be sure to thread and tighten carefully. When filling the resevoir, pour a little in, leave the cap off, turn the steering wheel both ways to the stop. This bleeds the air out of the system. Be sure not to over fill or you will blow seals. If when you turn the wheel after the repair is made it is very hard to turn the wheel one way and easy the other way, then your hose is reversed.

2005 jetta no power steering hard to steer


First and foremost, (if not already done) check the powersteering resevoir to make sure it has fluid and it is full as well as having no leaks. If it's leaking you may see small dark areas where you frequently park, on the ground. If it is full, there is a chance you need a new one, a hose/line is broken or has a hole (leak). A mechanic is your best choice to find this out. If the resevoir is empty or low, (can be checked hot or cold; look for level indicators for each on dipstick); fill it up and drive for a day or two - check the fluid again (make note of any difference in steering after filling. Powersteering pump may also be belt driven, so make sure the belt is tight (no cracks, etc.) may need to replace belt.

2005 Mercedes C230 w/ Kompressor


it seems your have a power steering problem. it could be a simple fix by checking the power steering resevoir for proper fluid level. it also be that the steering pump is failing. the most troublesome is that the rack and pinion unit is the fault. first thing to check is the fluid resevoir if it's low fill to proper level and start the vehicle. turn the steering wheel all the way left and hold till you hear a light squeal, then turn to the right and hold till you hear the squeal. do this several times. this is to make sure there is no air in the system. you should be able to turn the wheel and it should be smooth with no hesitation. if this doesn't solve the problem, then you must take it to a shop to have the pump replaced if it is the fault or the rack and pinion............please rate the solution...thanks
