Toyota Power Steering Pump Reseal
When the power steering pump gets low on fluid it makes a droning/groaning noise, especially when steering. When the power steering pump is leaking, in most instances a cost-effective solution is to reseal your existing pump.
Given that the pump is performing correctly and quietly when it’s full of fluid, we feel completely comfortable disassembling it and installing a complete set of new seals-both inner and outer. We prefer resealing your original Toyota power steering pump rather than replacing it with an aftermarket rebuild.
Years ago I worked for a shop tried aftermarket rebuilds for awhile, and after we replaced the pump on one car 3 times in about 2 weeks. And, of course resealing your existing pump saves quite a bit of money over buying a new pump from Toyota. When your pump and/or power steering hoses are leaking, at minimum you want to keep the level full.
The more often it runs low, the more likely you are to damage either the pump or other components like the power steering rack or the power steering gear. Again, most pumps can be resealed, and we feel completely comfortable doing so.
