Question about 1991 Toyota Camry

4 Answers

Is it the power steering pump or the line that's leaking?

Is there a way to diagnose this? It is leaking quite a bit, I have to fill the resevoir about every two days, then starts the groaning noise.There is steering difficulty only on take off. There is oil all over the bottom left part of the car(underneath).

What David said. I'd bet on a split hose in a Camry that vintage.

My money is on the hoses. I had to change both high pressure and low pressure hoses because they simply rusted through on my 2002 Camry. I have 225,000 miles on the car and nothing has broken but several things have rusted out and needed replacement.

If the line and rack aren't leaking then the pump is bad (look for the leaks ground zero)

Stop driving it before you ruin the pump or steering rack. Replace any leaking hoses, flush the system with correct fluid and fill.

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

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.

Power steering fluid leaking. Had rack replaced, leaking stopped. After a week started leaking again. Resevoir is low after filling with Dexron III. 2001 Hyundai Sonata V6 manual transmission.


Year and mileage? Keep the fluid level up so you don't damage the power steering pump, and return to the garage that serviced it. This sounds like something wasn't tightened properly, and they should correct the problem. It is possible that a power steering hose or the pump itself developed a leak, but, it is most likely something that wasn't tightened properly. That's the best diagnosis that can be given w/out actually being able to see the vehicle.

Power steering pump or fluid?


From the top. The reservoir is located on the power steering pump which is ran off of a belt so it will be located in the front of the motor. Look for the cooling fan and then you will be close and should find it from there.

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.

Bleeding power steering pump


Just did mine...unplug 2-3 of your plug wires so the vehicle doesn't start but turns over. Turn over motor a few seconds then refill power steering resevoir. Repeat until resevoir quits needing fluid...replace wires and drive slowly turning steering wheel from just short of all the way right then repeat to the left. This will get the air out of the lines. Check the fluid after this last step.
