SOURCE: brake system not holding pressure

Ok this is pretty simple braking system. FOLLOW these steps and relax, you will solve this problem. I also must say that the way this sound I can almost bet that you got a BAD MASTER CYLINDER (Its defective)

  1. First fill master cylinder with fluid and bench bleed master, alot of company send a bench bleed kit with masters (rubber hoses and plastic fittings) Its pretty simple connect hoses with fitting and fill master with fluid and leave cover off put ends of hoses into fluid and using a long screw drive push master in and out until all air are gone and just the fluid is flowing.
  2. Install master and connect all lines back on master then bleed rakes in this order RIGHT REAR---- LEFT REAR----RIGHT FRONT-----LEFT FRONT. Just in-Case you don't know how to bleed pump brake pedal 6 times and the hold pedal to the floor. While still holding pedal to the floor open brake bleeder screw on caliper/wheel cylinder.....Pedal will shoot to the floor keep pedal on the floor and tighten bleeder screw. Pump again and continue this process on all wheel until all the air is out the system and your Brake should be good. HOWEVER IF YOU HAVE A DEFECTIVE MASTER YOU MAY CONTINUE TO GET AIR BACK IN SYSTEM. If this happen BINGO .. You will need a MASTER CYLINDER. Good Luck contact if you need more help,thanks for using FIX A

SOURCE: 07 Toyota Tacoma Exclamation Light

If you get the exclamation point (!) light that's with a U-shape, it's likely that one or more of your TIRES has low pressure. I also had this once, and it, too, was on a cold January day in New Hampshire (-8ºF).
When you have your tire pressures checked, do remember, however, that you actually have FIVE (5) tires, including the SPARE.  My problem turned out to be low pressure in that SPARE!

How to bleed power steering reservior03 tacoma prerunner

Hello Loren Russell,

Great question.

Bleeding is for closed hydraulic systems... the air space at the top of the fluid tank is open... and air escapes the pumping action during the NORMAL functioning of the pump.

There's no "bleeding" on the power steering... fill the reservoir to the appropriate level... start the motor and turn the wheel lock to lock. That action alone causes the fluid to go in... pushing any trapped air out.

Check your fluid level and top it up to a medium level.

(always hit those "locks" gently...It is POWER steering).

We have replaced the pump, both hoses, and the rack and pinion. Still no power steering. The parts used were after market due to Toyota wanting 400.00 for the pump alone. Any suggestions?

Did you bleed the system after changing the parts? if there's air in the lines it'll cause issues.

I don't know HOW to do this on the Tacoma, but likley avl. online - check out the '' website.Td

Do you have return hose fluid coming back to pump?

Sounds like a it isn't getting thru the rack to operate it

Check bulletins on Alldata or Identifix

There may be spool defect issues or something in rack

If you had advance do the would they or you
as a mechanic, leave the shop with no fix for the problem

When im driving my 98 4x4 tacoma, it will violently vibrate at speeds of 40mph and then again at 60mph, then drive simi smooth after...any ideas as to what this could be, U-joint? wheel bearings?

Best guess is worn steering tie rods first. it doesn't take much wear for wheel shake to occur in the 4wd versions. next would be other steering components- idler arm and pitman arm. next would be ball joints- these are probably already needing replacement due to 4wd and age.
Good luck

My 2001 toyota tacoma is squealing nonstop and i think the powersteering pump is bad is this correct

I'm inclined to believe that your power steering pump is low on fluid or bad.

Squealing can come from any belt slipping or an accessory like the power steering pump being worn out.

Good luck, to you.

Assuming you have a known GOOD pump that was replaced. Try turning the wheel right then left while keeping an eye on the fluid level in the pump reservoir.
Probably have air in the system.

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.
