Question about 1999 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

1999 toyota fore-runner steering fluid leak.

I own a 1999 toyota fore-runner. There is a slow leak in my power steering system. I am replaceing about a qt a month of steering fluid. I can see the fluid dripping from about 2 feet back from the bumper, about in line with the wheel axles. Unfortunately I can not see where the drip originates from. Two questions, 1) as this is a ten year old car with only 150m mile on it is there any cheap temporary fix that will last 20-30m miles. If not does anyone have an idea what this may cost to fix. I can't tell if it is easy to work on, or whether they need to pull out the whole engine to get at it. Thanks, Part time pete.

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.

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.

Why is power steering fluid spewing out of the cap after replacing bad leaking power steering pump


You have Air in the Power steering System and it needs to be bleed out, And to do this if you Jack the two front wheels off the ground and Let them Hang free so there is No Load on the steering at all. please put some type of stands under the car, You will need more power steering fluid but before you add this you need to start your Car and turn the steering Wheel Slow from left to Right a few times, You will hear a wearing Notice come from the pump and you will see more fluid come out of the pump as well, that is the air trying to bleed its self out. The fluid coming out will be air rated lots of bubbles in it, Now that you have done this the Noise from the pump should start to go quite at this Point you can start to Add the New power steering fluid slow to the reservoir and keep turning the steering wheel from left to right slow (Never Fast but slow ) Have a lot of rags to clean the Mess. Hope this helps you. :)

Poer steering fluid is leaking. Fan runs slow


Check power steering rack. on the camarys its alittle more common than most cars. poke a hole in the boot and watch for a leak. Nothggn should come out of there. If you have fluid coming from the boots then your internal seals are leaking on the rack. a small hole will not hurt the rack if nothing comes out.

Also check your power steering pump shaft. sometimes the seal will leak
.
I think your over heating problem may be a different problem all together.

Hopefull that helps.

2003 4 Runner has resonate vibration in steering wheel


If yours is a 2003, you might look at changing the power steering fluid. I have a 97 Accord that would start jerking the steering wheel back and forth after it had warmed up. Replaced axles and didn't work, but replaced the fluid and it hasn't happened since. Wouldn't be hard or expensive to try. Just be sure to use the right fluid.
