  1. Camry 5th and 6th Gen '02-'11, Solara '04-'08
    I have 2007 camry. The power steering pump is making noise and it become weak. My question is the repairing kit does it work in noise case? I saw the kit come with seals, so I thought it will fix the leak and weakness problem. Does it fix the noise issue too? Both kits: AC Delco 36-348379 Power...

    96 Camry 4cyl 5sfe. I want to remove the PS pump to rebuild. I have it drained at the return hose, and all the brackets removed and the pump is hanging down so I have easy access to it. (the front tire is off so I'm accessing it though the wheel well) There is a banjo fitting at the end of the...

    Hoping someone can help me with this tough problem. I have a pretty big oil leak on the passenger side (about 10 to 20 drops each day). The mechanic I showed it to says the Power Steering pump and pressure lines are the culprit and is quoting $500 to change them. I couldn't believe that as...

    My steering became ridiculously heavy and turning the wheel has become a two handed yank around! I live on a small island with no proper roads so its driveable but very difficult to steer comfortably. I took it to my local mechanic and he suggested it may be the power steering pump. I found a...

    My PS pump was making a lot of noise and the rack was leaking a bit so I bought a new rack and a re-manufactured pump (w/o reservoir) and had a shop install them for me. The next morning when I started my truck the new pump was still vibrating and making that whining sound. However, when I drove...
  6. 89-95 Toyota Pickup/Hilux
    My truck is a 94 v6 pickup 4x4. It has been having troubles with the idle where it will be very high when cold, around 2000rpm. It will continue to be like this until it has been running quite a bit. Then, if I shut it off for a little bit and start it again while it is warm, the idle gets very...

    Hello, About two weeks ago my power steering assist stopped working. I ordered a replacement part from Autozone and this weekend I installed it. I removed the old one and installed the rebuilt one from Autozone. I decided to flush the fluid since it looked pretty dirty (my truck has 334K...

    I have a 1999 toyota corolla. I recently changed the PS pump and the pulley about 2 months ago. After changing the power steering pump, the steering was a bit hard to turn, however, being a male I it did not bother me.

    The Damage: I recently turned on my 2000 Corolla to hear the dreaded "Something's turning into an expensive pile of iron filings" sound. Shortly after, Suddenly my power steering became a lot noisier. Fluid level was fine, and adding more didn't help. About a day later, I lost all accessory...

    I have a 93 Camry XLE V6 with the hydraulic fan. The other night the power steering failed as I was going around a corner and then it overheated, blowing coolant all over. This sounds like something affecting the power steering pump. As I have been troubleshooting, I noticed a wire between...
