Replaced powersteering hose and now the truck wont turn over


If you filled the power steering reservoir with the proper fluid (usually ATF), you should let the engine run for a while and try to turn the steering wheel a bit in either direction.
The wheels will hop a bit, you will feel like the power steering isn't working for a while, then it'll start working again and so on. Keep turning the wheel lock to lock until it works smoothly.
Keep an eye on the fluid level as you may need to refill the reservoir a couple of times as the fluid will be distributed in the power steering system.
Observe any strange sounds coming from the power steering pump and make sure not to keep the steering wheel turned to the limit as it may hurt the pump.

What will help my car to work


you have to find the leak in the system to know what needs replacing. if its the pump then replace the pump if its a hose replace hose, etc. then fill system with power steering fluid and start car and turn the steering wheel all the way left and right to bleed the system of air until the fluid has no air in it and is at the correct level. shut off car and let sit for a while and recheck fluid level. this will also help with the steering wheel not wanting to turn.

Why is it hard to turn the steering wheel?


Check the level of your power steering fluid and have your pump checked. You are probably just low o fluid.

I'm having problems with the steering...is there powersteering for this particular car


Yes, you do have power steering. Exactly what is going on with the steering? Does the steering wheel seem to be jerking or twitching as you turn? You may be able to pour in some Honda steering fluid (or Import Fluid Approved for Honda). It will be a red cap to the right as you are looking at the engine. If this fixes the problem temporarily, then you need to find where it is leaking from to fix it.

My hose jiggles when i turn the wheel just changed pump


change the power steering pump? if so you have to bleed the lines bc you have air in the system. you can do so by removing the powersteering cap and starting the vehicle. turn the wheel all of the way to the right and then to the left. keep doing this. if you have air in the lines you will hear a whining type of noise. just keep doing it and you will notice the noise will get softer and softer, and will eventualy will stop once the air is gone.

2002 4Runner locked steering wheel


Try jerking the steering wheel as your turn the key. Sometimes when you park and the wheel locks up you have to play with it to get it unlocked.

Using a flair nut wrench, disconnect both ends of the hose & remove it. New one goes back in the same way other one came out. Make sure that any "o" rings (if any) are replaced as new (usually supplied with hose if they're supposed to be there). Make sure that fittings are threading squarely into components and can be finger tightened at least part way to avoid cross-threading fittings. When finished, make sure that hose is not rubbing on anything or it will wear a hole at that point.
RE-fill pump, start vehicle, turn steering wheel all the way to the left, hold it there and count to ten, center wheel, re-fill pump, repeat process, all way to right. (this removes air from system). Top off, check for leaks and you are finished!

Steering


sound like your powersteering pump or steering rack and pinion
could be bad.i would say it is your rack and pinion because if your pump was bad your steering would be real hard to turn instead of being jerky.jerking is usally the sign of a bad rack
