Very common problem on this car. Usually it is a combination of 2 items: the pressure hose to the rack & pinion and the power steering pump itself. Since the hose is located above the pump it most likely will look as if the pump is leaking. Suggestion: if the hose is wet, replace it first (it's a 2 piece deal), then thoroughly clean the area including the pump. Run the car for awhile and recheck for leaks. No leaks - you got off cheap. :)

This usually requires changing the power steering pump. If the leak is not too bad , just some drops, there are sealant products on the market for Powersteering leaks.( Power steering stop leak) if you will. But these hardly if ever work.

SOURCE: Suddenly leaking power steering fluid, reservoir empty

The best bet is its trans oil. The gearbox has crushable washers/gaskets, the bolts may just need to be tightened slightly to crush the gasket and seal.

SOURCE: Type of power steering fluid for 2001 toyota camry

Power steering fluid - Dexron 2 or 3 automatic transmission fluid. Yes transmission fluid. And while you are at it check the fluid level in the transmission.
Since you got the hood up, check the brake fluid, wiper fluid, radiator fluid, battery fluid, oil level.

SOURCE: Rear Main Seal leak on 1996 toyota camry, 6 cyl sedan automomatic

Rear main crank seals are very difficult and time consuming to replace. The seal doesn't cost that much - it is the labor/tiime it takes because --- you've got to take the whole car apart --- that is both
front CV joints have to come out -- then the tranny has to come out - I have a 1996 Camry and it has an irritating rear main seal at 147,000 miles and I have not had it fixed because the shops tell me it will cost around $650 to $800 for them to do it --- $1200 is pretty excessive for that job!

Your power rack and steering is not so hard -- most shops in this area would charge $650 max for that job including the price of the new rack and pinion. Pretty easy job -- half the cost is labor - the other is for parts.

Any more questions --- reply to manuel.conde@motivaent.com

SOURCE: 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee leaking coolant and power steering fluid

Just a heads up, $10 bucks will buy you a seal kit for the P.S. pump. I topped mine off for a couple months, then the oring on the high pressure line (from pump, front center) blew and dumped the reservoir in a matter of miles.

The line can be a stinker to get off, recommend driving the car for a few minutes to heat up the pump a little. Don't forget the 20MM wrench.

The power steering fluid pump is leaking from my 1997 toyota camry (six cylinders). Should I replace the pump or keep refilling the fluid?


HI,
check and see if it is the hose or connection that is leaking. Sometimes a clamp will loosen or a hose crack. If the fluid is leaking from the sreering box /rack, then the best thing to do is replace it with a rebuilt / new unit.

If you just keep adding fluid to compensate for the loss, you might have a very unpleasant surprise one day, and find yourself with little if any, steering.

Really, it's a safety issue, and you should have the problem rectified A.S.A.P.


Good luck.

I have a toyota 1996 camry and I notice that it is very hard to steer and turn the steering wheels. i also notice that there was little or no power steering fluid in the container.


SR you just found the problem a leak in the power steering system, check the floor were you park the car every day, there steering fluid by the driver side the problem is the steering rack, there is fluid by the engine passenger side, pressure line, banjo fitting, return line, and also steering rack, the best thing to do is clean the oily area, refill reservoir drive it and check for a fresh leak.

Power Steering fluid leaking 1997 Toyota Camry Leaks all the time Put more fluid in.


Bad lines or bad pump. if it's not a bad leak, try some stop leak additive and add fluid when needed. If it's bad, you need to replace what's leaking before your spend the repair cost in powersteering fluid. lines are relatively cheap and i would replace them before you run out of fluid and burn the pump up.

OIL LEAKS CAN'T STEER THE CAR


sounds like the power steering is leaking, add power steering fluid and should be able to steer. More then likely it is the high pressure hose that is leaking. Hope this helped Tim

Leaking power steering pump


Yes Mistydogg, the solution posted here is absolutely correct. And be sure to remove (as much as possible) of the factory power steering fluid from the reservoir and replace with automatic transmission fluid (ATF). Do this a few times during regular oil changing intervals to cycle-out the original factory fluid. The 1995 Camry was shipped from the factory with clear/typical power steering fluid, however (strangely) the factory service manual calls for replacing with automatic steering fluid. Well, it's actually not so strange. ATF has a seal swelling effect that will stop the leaking within your entire power steering system - fast. I ran into the same problem in a big way. The dealer wanted to replace my pump and rack at 50k miles at the remanufactured parts plus labor price of $1,200. I am leak-free today on my same pump and rack at 241k miles having switched over to ATF. Enjoy your great car!

Power streeing oil leeking under from car


Your Camry uses ATF ( Automatic Transmission Fluid). Your going to have to get the leak repaired, common cause is the high pressure hose is leaking and soon it will fail 100% and your going to lose your power steering. Worst is the ATF is flammable and if it hits a hot spot like the exhaust manifold, it will catch fire. Good luck and hope this helps, and don't let the fluid get too low. Low fluid in your steering pump will cause damage.
