Camry 2001 Steering Problem !!! HELP

I suffered a lot in those few days, the steering is so heavy to move at any speed and specially at stand still. The funny thing is that, the steering is so smooth when the car is off!!!
I went to the dealer and to another work shop, they checked the car, steering oil, and they do tires alignment, but they did not discover any problem or actually they could not understand what is the problem !!

Poor steering on my 1995 Toy Camry. How can I troubleshoot that?

Have you checked the power steering container, to make sure you have power steering fluid in it?
The steering will be feeling heavy, and hard to steer the car, if the power steering fluid is too low, or empty.

Tight steering

wrong it can be .... the pump has an impeller in it
at low speeds it might be working fine.. but at higher speeds the impeller is slipping so it is not moving the oil like it should... replace the pump...

My 2001 Audi TT's steering is it because it's a 4 wheel drive? I've had it for 4 years and haven't checked the steering wheel fluid...

The all wheel drive will not effect the steering. I'd start with the steering fluid as it may be low or beginning to break down. I assume this issue is new and has not always feelt heavy; if so this might be the pump failing or the steering rack which the pump delivers fluid too.

I hope this may help,

My SAAB 9-5 2.3 Automatic (V Reg) cuts out at low speed

Take a look at the accessories belt.... does the battery and/or check engine light's on? This belt activates water pump (check temperature gage...), power steering pump (heavy steering...), a/c compressor (a/c working?) and alternator (battery recharging)... of course!

Hope it will help you, even if my english isn't terrible...

Light steering

See if you have a power steering pressure switch. Some cars have a variable orifice power steering switch that varies pressures based on speed and how fast you are turning. For example, in a parking lot (low speeds), power assist would be greatest whereas at higher speeds, it would be lowest. If you have a power steering pressure switch on the car, that could be ur problem.
