Did you use a power steering puller tool to remove and reinstall the power steering pulley?
If you even tapped lightly on the pulley to reinstall it you probably broke the clip that locks the power steering shaft to the pump inside.
To find out take your power steering belt back off and see if the shaft and pulley can be pulled out of the housing, if so you may need a new pump.

My 4 runner suddenly started steering hard what might be causing this


You either have a failing power steering hydraulic pump or the steering rack and pinion unit has a seal leak and needs to be replaced. Try installing a can of power steering sealer from an auto parts store it may help.

Does truck have to be running on my 1990 toyota 4-runner 4x4 ?


No, you can do it without the engine running. The power assist just makes braking easier. Just make sure you don't move the pedal till the bleeder is tight, then pump it back up an do it again. Start at the right rear and move towards the front left. Hope this helps.

It most likey be the pump and the engine does not have to come out. but it could be a pump houseing or a hose leaking, the only thing to do is keep adding fluid a pump seal is $37.10 put putting it on would cost 2 hours of labor.

2003 Ford F350, massive hydrolic pwr steerinfluid leak


What I think you are referring to as the pump is really the steering box because the pump doesn't have an arm connected to it. The pump has 2 hoses and a belt going to it. From what you describe it sounds like you need a pitman shaft seal. The seal is replaceable but you will need a pitman arm puller to get the pitman arm off. If you don't have or can't get a puller don't even bother starting the repair, as you WILL NOT get the pitman arm off without one. When you get the pitman arm off clean out around the shaft and you will see a snap ring. Remove the snap ring. Now make sure the power steering is full of fluid. Start the engine and turn the steering wheel all the way one way or the other and hold it there while increasing the RPM. Doing this will literally "BLOW" the seal out. There will be a couple of spacers and maybe another seal that come out of the hole also. So read the installation instructions that come with the seal kit and it will have a picture of where the components go and in what order they go in. Don't forget the snap ring. When done replaceing the seal you have to center the steering box. From all the way one way turn the steering wheel all the way the other way and count the turns. Now turn back the other way half as many turns and the box is centered. With the tires pointed straight (not turning) the pitman arm should go right on. The pitman arm will go on the pitman shaft in 4 different places. So if you don't center the box and the wheels you might have say one turn to the right before the steering wheel stops and three turns to the left. With all this done fill the power steering with fluid. With the front tires off the ground and the engine NOT running turn the steering wheel all the way from stop to stop 4 or 5 times and then check the fluid again. Fill the fluid and turn wheel from stop to stop another 4 or 5 times. Doing this will "bleed" most of the air out of the system. Now start the engine and turn wheel from stop to stop a few more times to "bleed" any remaining air from system. Turn off the engine and check fluid level. Hope this is helpful.

Power steering pump


if the leak isn't from the hoses or connectors under the car.  Clean the pump area with carb cleaner spray, then tie a small bit of white cloth around both hoses (tighten the clamps at the same time).  This will reveal the source of the leak.  If the hoses are OK.  It's most likely the front seal and requires a replacement pump.

Power steering leak


Check the pump front seal, Wipe down the hoses and check the crimp fittings for leakage Also look carefully at the steering gear, the fitings and pitman arm seal ( this one is on the bottom) and the seal where the steering column goes in.
