Question about Vehicle Parts & Accessories

I have a 92 plymouth laser rs, my power steering slowly started to go and difficult to turn wheel. I just tried to put more power steering fluid in to see if it leaked thru and there was a tiny bit on the minimum, and after i put a little in it was over the max! Does tht mean its a small leak? Idk what to do..

1995 toyota tercel. Steering wheel is hard to turn and i dont see where i can put power steering fluid


Are you sure it has power steering? Many tercels did not. Without PS, the steering wheel will be more difficult to turn when standing still.

I had a '94 Tercel few years back, and it had no PS.

Ford 1993 Taurus steering


Have you checked the power steering fluid level? The reservoir for the fluid will be at the front of the engine, where the belt runs the power steering pump. If it's low or out add a little power steering fluid till full, then start car and slowly turn wheels back and forth from stop to stop-not too ******* the stops (when the steering won't turn further that way...that's what I mean by stops)....Turn wheel one way full travel, then reverse and turn the other way. Check the fluid level again, and add as needed.
If fluid is not low, the belt may be too loose to make the power steering pump work, or you may have a bigger problem that needs professional attewntion.

Put new power steering pump on 92 bronco ,flushed 2 quarts through system, still milky and still does not work ?


the milky colar is caused by air in the system. this takes a little to get out and will cause your power steering nt to work correctly.jack the front axle off the ground then start. turn the steering wheel slowly fom right lock to left lock. check fluid in resevior top of if needed and repeat. this might take a while, but it will get the air out.

After I replaced the power steering pump and reservoir on my 2002 Jeep, I still get air in the system. Where could it be coming from?


Your problem could be a pressure side hose that has a rupture that only leaks in extreme conditions. Inspect to replace with new to repair problem. First make sure you have removed the pump caps off of the hose fittings. If ok, it appears you may have a stuck valve in the rack assembly. Replacing the rack should solve your problem. ------- The new pump should be self-bleeding by turning the wheels left and right. Let sit over night to release air bubbles, recheck fluid level.------ Check the tension of the drive belts on the pump, as they may be loose. The power steering pump and reservoir is located on the front of the engine driven by one of the fan belts. There is a removable cap on the top with a dipstick attached. With the engine off, fill this up to the full mark with power steering fluid. Replace the cap, start the engine and check for leaks. On the back of the pump are two hoses either one could be leaking. REPAIR PROCEDURE:
1. Wipe the power steering cap and area free of dirt. Remove the power steering cap.

2. Use a siphon pump to remove as much fluid as possible from the power steering fluid reservoir.

3. With a helper in the vehicle, raise the vehicle on an appropriate hoist.

WARNING :POWER STEERING FLUID, ENGINE PARTS, AND THE EXHAUST SYSTEM MAY BE EXTREMELY HOT IF THE ENGINE HAS BEEN RUNNING. DO NOT START ENGINE WITH ANY LOOSE OR DISCONNECTED HOSES. DO NOT ALLOW HOSES OR POWER STEERING FLUID TO TOUCH HOT EXHAUST MANI FOLD OR CATALYST.
4. Locate the power steering cooler attached to the crossmember support plate. Slide back the clamp and disconnect one of the two power steering return hoses at the power steering oil cooler and drain fluid in an appropriate container.
5. Have the helper turn the steering wheel back and forth quickly several times to force as much fluid as possible from the steering gear.
6. Reconnect the hose at the oil cooler using the original clamp.
7. Lower vehicle so the vehicle tires are not contacting the ground.
9. For proper fluid fill and bleeding air from the power steering system:

a. Fill the power steering reservoir to the top of the fill range using Mopar power steering fluid (ATF+4) p/n 05013458AA.

b. With the engine OFF and the vehicles tires off the ground, slowly turn the steering wheel back and forth (lock to lock) slowly 20 times to force fluid into the steering gear.

c. Fill the power steering reservoir to the top of the fill range.

d. Start engine and let run for a few seconds, then turn oft engine.

e. Check fluid level and add if necessary.

f. Start engine, and slowly turn the steering wheel lightly contacting the left and right stops.

g. Stop the engine and check fluid level. Add fluid if necessary.

h. Lower vehicle, start engine and slowly turn steering wheel lock-to-lock.

I. Stop engine and check fluid level. Add fluid if necessary.

j. If fluid is extremely foamy, allow vehicle to stabilize a few minutes, then repeat steps "i" and "j" until the fluid level remains constant after running the engine and turning the steering wheel from lock to lock.

10. Inform the vehicle owner/operator that a steering vibration may be noted for a few hundred miles until the air is completely removed from the steering system.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

You need some power steering fluid. Fill to line markers on power fluid tank while car is off. Start car turn steering wheel all the way to the left then all the way to the right until squealling stops.If it does not stop check fluid level and if it needs add more.Put a cardboard box flat under the car to check for leaks. If no leaks continue filling to line marker until squealing stops.

Put in new power steringpump and house on 1999 ford taurus now it keeps blowing off powerstering cap. pushhing out fluid.


When installing power steering pump you should lift front of car up. Fill reservour up with fluid and trun steering wheel with ignition off about 5 to 8 times full revolution. This will take air out of system. Also make sure that lines are connected correctly. It sounds like there is possiblilty of are in the system.

Transmission always in neutral


sounds like you ran it too low on transmission fluid and may have fried your internal clutches.
I had this happen once and trust me you never do it twice.
Check the fluid and see if it has a 'burnt' smell to it.
