Question about 1991 Toyota Pickup

1 Answer

Power steering The power steering doesn't work anymore. When I turn the steering wheel I hear a creaking noise coming from the steering column. I'm under the impression (from the previous owner) that the issue is more complicated than simply adding power steering fluid. Thank you!

It sound's like the power steering pump has gone bad and needs to be replaced, As the pick up truck being 18 years old, you may want to invest in a power steering pump from the salvage yard to save you some money. But if you like to get a rebuilt pump, you can go to Auto Zone and they can get you a steering pump and give you the step by step to replacing the pump. Good luck and hope this helps.

My 2011 Nissan Sentra makes a slight creaking noise whenever I back out of parking spaces by turning the steering wheel to the extreme right or left. Specifically, the noise comes after I start rolling...


is the creaking coming from the front or rear of the vehicle? if its in the front, it could be a bad strut. 2011? the vehicle should be under manuf. warranty. take it into the dealer and they should fix it for free and even put you in rental car if the vehicle has to stay for an extended period of time. make sure you are under 36,000 miles for the manuf. warranty to apply. good luck!

Everytime I turn slowly I hear this creaking sound. The ride is smooth my steering wheel is great. My power steering is capped off. I dont know what the problem could be. I don't hear it right off when I...


I had a similar problem on my 2002 Escape, but it was also creaked when cold. It turned out to be an outer tie rod joint. It may also be a lower ball joint. My creaking would happen when turning the steering wheel even a quarter turn. I reached behind the tire and put my hand on the tie rod while my wife slowly turn the steering wheel back and forth. I could feel the very obvious vibration. Try the other side to see if you can feel the difference. Can you hear it when standing outside the car, and tell which side?

No power steering


Ok here ya go jack up the front end and secure it from falling. Then with engine off turn full left and right, have the key on far enough to get the steering lock off. If it turns fine start the truck and do it again look for any leaks and listen for any weird sounds. Make sure the steering fluid is full before you do this. If there is a issue both off and on, engine that is, that's a good sign that it's your stearing gear. If it's only when you have engine running the it's ether your pump not pumping or your power steering portion of you steering gear. One way to check your pump is to take the out flow hose off and make sure you have good flow out of it with the engine running, don't do this for to long. Just long enough to see if it works. Well I hope this helps.

Creaking noise while turning


There are a few things to check out. Check your ball joints, if they have lost their grease they will creak. Also the upper strut plate can cause that. Less often, but possible is the rack assembly and the tie rod ends. This is assuming the noise is out side, IF you are hearing inside then it is a problem in the steering column.
