    Default Power steering pump or hose?

    I just started getting a squeeling noise thats getting LOUDER and louder as i turn my wheel or accelerate in even a straight line. I let the car sit over night and when i came to it i noticed power steering fluid on the ground, looks to be right above the pump (if im correct), but when lookin in the resivour it was full.. Im not a mechanic by any means but what would be the best way to see if it is a hose or the pump. Thanks for the help.

    It does that when you have a leak. Guessing you blew one of your hoses.

    PS is a huge problem in many celicas, best way to find out is get under car (best is car lift so u can stand underneath and check it out) and just look for glossy lines with PS on them. In my case the PS fluid went down a LOT when i reversed it shot it all over the pavement.

    Its a hose just get under and see which hose it is. Only 2 i think

    open the resivour and take a 2nd look inside of it. normally the ps fluild kind of stains them on the outside so that they look like they are full when they can be empty.

    like grumpy said, you have to get under the car and find the source of the leak

    taking the pump off might make it easier.

    You don't have to pull the pump to remove the hose.
    It might make it a bit easier though, and will be cleaner when you're installing the new one.

    It should be a 17mm bolt.

    Just a warning, if you remove the pump, reinstalling the belt and tightening it can be a bitch.
