It depends where it is leaking from,if is a hose fitting it might just need tightening up,if it is from the power steering pump it is most likely the front seal behind the pulley & it will have to be replaced, or replace the whole pump, if it is the steering rack it could be the the pinion seal ( where the steering column connects ) at the ends of the rack where the tie rod connects (inside the rubber boots) all these seals can be replaced ,but sometimes it is better to fit reconditioned units, depending how many kilometeres/miles the vehicle has done.....hope this helps....cheers

This sounds like the hydroboost unit is leaking.behind the master cylinderThe braking system on this using the power steering pump to provide power assisted brakes instead of a brake booster. The hydroboost unit most likely needs replaced.

Power steering leaking could be just a hose. You can find leak by placing a cardboard sheet under car overnight and tr+ace where it is coming from. If not a hose, it will be.....the rack and pinion system. Can replace with used if you are mechanically inclined. But check hoses first.
Turn signals not working could be a fuse, relay or your control on the steering column. 05 Scion is old enough to be the control on the steering column. You can buy the control(turn signal arm on the side of the steering column) at a parts store and replace very easily by taking off the housing around steering column and you will see how to dissasemble and replace in about 5 minutes.

Need to replace a worn out steering rack
& flush the Power Steering System
Have to install a Return Line Filter after
the cooler or you have no warranty on new rack
If you change power steering & transmission fluids on all vehicles every 3 years, you avoid expensive repairs,but yours
is 18,19 years old, so you got an ongoing restoration project,
not a daily driver

Leaking out have to fill dailypower steering fluid


The seals are worn in the cylinder. Cheapest solution is to find one at a salvage yard and replace as to rebuild would be costly. I used to be a hydraulics journeyman and power steering works on the same principles.

Power steering is whinning?


Have you checked the fluid level? if not then need to.

If fluid level is full and you have not just done work on system so air could be trapped then problem is a p/s pump going out

Could be a hose or the gasket on top cover or the unit it's self could have an internal leak. Clean the hoses and continually check for fluid on a daily basis. Also look for cracks and signs of soft spots on the hoses especially near the connections, this should help you narrow down where the fluid is going.
