If you live near an autozone, that is the best way to figure out what the check engine light means. They will check it out for you for free. I used a power steering fluid called Bar's. The Oreilly link is here: http://shop.oreillyauto.com/ProductDetail.aspx?MfrCode=BRL&MfrPartNumber=P30L&CategoryCode=3283

I tried all other kinds of fluid with leak stop I could find, but half a bottle of this stuff did the job. Saved me $400 on replacing the power steering gear box. If it doesn't stop the leak, they will give you your money back. It costs about $5 but it's well worth it.

Hope this helps.

Leaking power steering 2001 renault megane cabriolet


OK... You see it under the car, right? Go in the engine and under it to wipe splashed power steering fluid off the surfaces. Next, put white paper towels under the areas of the engine below where the power stearing pump and hoses are. Run the vehicle at idle and turn the stearing wheel left and right while someone looks under the engine and back to the hoses and stearing pump on top. Yo might be lucky and see spirting from a hose or fitting! If not there should be dripping onto the paper eventually. Turn off the engine and look for streams running down those hoses. Follow the streams upstream to the leak or leaks. If they are from cracked hose, chamge both hoses. If they are from a seal in the power steering pump, replace or rebuild the pump.

My car is making whinning high pitch sounds when im driving then it will stop and eventually come back, is it the power stearing pump or the power stearing hose leaking


You most likely have a leak. You shouldn't ever have to add power steering fluid. It is best to get it checked out and repaired while the leak is small. If you wait, the leak will get worse and the oil gets dumped on hoses, belts, wiring harnesses, computer sensors, etc. and can cause severe damage to all of these items, as well as rubber engine mounts and suspension parts. To properly maintain your vehicle, NO fluid leak should EVER be "tolerated". Fluid leaks (of all types) are the leading cause of sending cars to the scrap yard way before their time.

1991 toyota celica convertable 4 wheel stearing, the 4 wheel stear light is on on the dash and the stearing is heavy and has very poor turning circle? please help. Bill


Your first option should be to check all the connections. Corrosion and moisture can set in if the cars left unused for any length of time. Check your fuses around the brake system; this could be a problem for grease losing, damage the axle in short time. Other posibility is one electricla switch or sensor bad.

The 4WS system is a fairly complex setup hence Toyota will probably charge an arm and a leg for fixing any fault on it (also it is a *** option).

There are five main components, main motor, backup motor, speed sensor, steering sensor and 4WS computer so it could be any of these, also add a possible wiring fault on top of that.

You can carry out a diagnostic test to interrogate the 4ws management fault code by bridging TC and E1 connections at the diagnostic plug (situated next to the top of the passenger front suspension strut in the engine bay). With these two connections shorted you should get a series of flashes from the 4WS light on the dash when you switch on the ignition. Each series of flashes represents a digit which can be looked up.

Power steering light comes on and then I loose power steering


Gonna take a gander at a guess, and say a power stearing pump. Are you losing power brakes at the same time? If so, probably a serpentine belt. Or a loose pulley (bearing) in there. If only power stearing, check the power stearing fluid first.

Steering difficult(slow) and a whining noise when turning wheel


The whine is most likely your power steering pump. Check the fluid in the pump. If you are low on power steering fluid you may have a leaking hose or fitting or the seals in the pump may have began leaaking. If you continue to run the auto without power steering fluid you will burn up the power steering pump very quickly.

Stearing pump nnoise 1995 toyota tacoma


you may have air in the lines to the steering rack. or the fluid is low. there is also a chance your replacement pump is defective. a lot of steering pumps are remanufactured. a way to check for air in the lines is to take the filler cap off, have someone turn the steering wheel lock to lock a few times and hold for a few seconds at full lock each time, check to see if any air bubbles arise in pump reservoir. if no bubbles are seen you can also try a vacuum pull on the reservoir if you have the tool to do so, that tool will pull any air from the lines, but the engine has to be off because it will also pull some fluid from the pump in the process, when you don't see any air bubbles in the vacuum tools's lines it should be ok.
