How do you add power steering pump to 95 toyota tercel


Do you need to replace an existing pump or is your car currently manual steering? If it is manual steering there will be more than just adding a pump. The actual steering rack is most likely different from a power steering unit so there would be multiple components required to convert. If your pump is faulty, you just need to disconnect the lines, remove the belt then remove the pump and install the new one. While you are doing that I would flush the old fluid out of the rack to increase life span of steering rack.

1997 mercury villager...leaking anti freeze from right side...mechanic said its water pump.What does something like that cost and is it worth doing if the car has 181,100 miles on it..


it will be about 2 hours labor, plus the pump and antifreeze. It's worht doing if the price is under $300.

Look on ebay for a good quality Nissan, Ford or well known aftermarket name. See if shop will either give you a part discont or supply your own.

Power steering hard and noisey


Hi Maldon,

I haven't heard the noise, but it's usually the belt. Check its tension, check it for frays or wear.

No filter. If the pump it going out, the reservoir and pump are a single unit and need to be replaced as such.

Best regards

Stiff turning


you could be low on pwer steering fluid. CV joints won't affect steering. That is for powering the wheels.

Very important. Make sure shop did not overtighten a/c belt. If they did, you could be in danger of breaking your crankshaft snout. It may be a good idea to check that.

Also, did they tighten the power steering belt correctly?

Did this steering issue sstart after repairs

  1. The tension for the water pump and power steering drive belt should measure 603-691 N (135-155 lbs) for a new drive belt, 495-583 N (110-130 lbs) for a used drive belt. The limit for drive belt tension is 196 N (44 lbs).
    1. Adjust the water pump and power steering drive belt tension as follows:
    2. Raise and support the vehicle.
    3. Remove the RH front fender splash shield (16102).
    4. Loosen the water pump and power steering pump drive belt idler pulley locknut.

      Deflection Adjustment
      1. NOTE: If the drive belt has been in service for some time, it should be inspected before adjustment. A drive belt that is severely glazed, frayed, cracked, or contaminated with oil must be replaced. Minor cracks in the back of the drive belt are acceptable as long as no large pieces are missing.

        Apply 98 N (22 lbs) of pressure to the drive belt at a point midway between the power steering pump pulley and the water pump pulley.
        1. NOTE: Always check the drive belt deflection when the engine is cold, or has been stopped for at least 30 minutes. A drive belt is considered new if it has been used on a running engine for less than five minutes.

          The drive belt deflection should measure 8-10mm (0.31-0.39 inch) for a new drive belt or 10-12mm (0.39-0.47 inch) for a used drive belt . The limit of deflection is 16.0mm (0.63 inch).
        1. If the drive belt deflection is not as specified, adjust the water pump and power steering pump drive belt tension. Refer to the procedure in this section.

Power steering pump


Yes in most cases the pump rotor vanes cause this noise, there are additives that can help like one made by Lucas Oil, but if it is really whinning then that will be a watse of money, if you end up putting on a rebuilt pump make sure to flush all the old fluid out or the pump you just spent your hard earned money on will get noisey to.
