You can try LUCAS power steering sealant. It comes in a bottle and you add it to the full line on the dipstck. But I would just replace the line.

Oil leaking out of engine, overheating, loss of power steering

Hi Koe, Most older cars do eventually develop oil leeks, typically/Hopefully its just the rocker-cover gasket that needs replacing. Check the colour and viscosity of the oil in your sump via the dip-stick, its good to change your oil and oil filter every 10,000 klm. Top your engine oil up to the full line on the Dip stick if its low, check your water level in the radiator, the water should be free of oil/dirt and put some antifreeze in, this will help protect your engine and keep the car running cooler, Top up your power steering fluid if it is low, This may fix all the immediate issues, after you replace all the fluids and filters, just run her at an stationary idle (no load on the engine) till she gets warm, take note if your fan is working, also check your belts!! You might find that its not even there! this would make the car over heat and the power steering pump wont work without it. all the best. Ian

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.
