I don't know if I have the right tools to do it. If there's some links in here that y'all can find for a novice like me to do it, please post it up so I can follow along.

Yea, it makes me quite unhappy (think unhappy Marine) that this issue has popped up 'suddenly'. I just wanted to drive it around and look cool. LOL

I have to ditch my Sonata now and I need something to drive.
Yeah he has a video, its pretty simple to remove the reservoir. I'd highly recommend his method over trying to unbend the metal and bend it back to shape. Replacing the pump is pretty simple. A socket set and a pair of pliers should be all you need.

I had a similar issue a few years ago on mine. Flushed, bled, cleaned the filter; still whined.
Ended up replacing with a used pump off a 'Runner with 80K from LKQ. I felt more confident that a used OEM pump would last much longer than an aftermarket pump. Haven't had any issues since.

If it ends up the flush and reservoir screen cleaning doesn't do it, maybe you could pick up a used pump off a wrecked rig at a PickNPull or other wrecking yard in your area. For the belt tension, 1/2-3/4" of belt deflection is in the ballpark of proper belt tension. Meaning, if you grab the belt midway between the power steering pulley and fan pulley, you should be able to push the belt downward 1/2-3/4" and pull it up 1/2-3/4". If it's looser than that, you might get belt slippage. If it's tighter than that, it could put excessive strain on the pulley bearings.

To get to the power steering adjuster bolt, I found a much easier way to get on that bolt. In the passenger side wheel well, detach the forward rubber mud flap partially. With a long extension and 14mm socket, you can get a pretty straight shot to get onto that adjuster bolt. There are some hoses that get in the way a little but you can push them to the side enough to get your extension and socket in there. This is much easier than leaning over the engine and blindly getting onto the adjuster bolt with a ratcheting box end wrench or ratchet and socket.

I am praying it was just the fluid and screen. I added fluid and it seems to have diminished or stopped whining at least.
I only drove it about 2 miles to work so will check it at dinner and before I go home.

Yíall are life savers!! ❤️

In the meantime there are 2 good 4the gen V8 Iíve checked out so might pick one up. I like the ďaccident proneĒ black one but the white one is awesome as well. Both <155K too.

Well had it a week and it started leaking anti-freeze. So immediately took it over to them and it took two of them to fix that issue and get the PS pump tightened right. So no more PS issues as of now - or AF leak.

It has been since the TB change and still does, screech at start up.

Why is this? What do I need to check?

Thanks

If a belt isn't slipping, the squeal is likely a worn-out bearing on one of the pulleys. The belts will have to loosened to check the pulleys; maybe a stethoscope could locate the problem before loosening anything.

So I went back to the shop and apparently it's the pulley/tensioner on the left side by the alternator? Just looks like a bolt and slider system but it's maxed. which he says is maxed yet there is still slack in the belts.
Does anyone have an idea how to correct the screech? Anyone close by that could help me in any way - refer to mechanic, fix it for $$ or beer?
Should I try going to Toyota service (I know stop laughing).

I hate that trying to do maintenance it seems worse than not doing it at all.

And now on to that tail light issue...

Sounds like wrong belt then, too long, get a shorter belt.....or the tensioner is incorrect/wrong length bolts or something. Its pretty simple, all the belt tensioners are simple, and your mechanic should have been able to remedy it instead of sending you away not fixed.

Alternator belt is @ 1065mm and Power steering belt is @ 1085mm so they are easily installed in wrong spot, as dogtail said it should have been fixed.

I wanted to update y'all.

I reached out through an app called Nextdoor for a Toyota specific mechanic and had a few suggestions.
Took it to a place called Reese Automotive and was there maybe half an hour and they tightened a bolt up and secured two lines and that was a week ago. They said otherwise it looks good.
So much for the original guy saying they couldn't do anything.

No noise since and it is running like a dream in all kinds of weather we've had. They were good older mechanics and knew their stuff. AND they didn't charge me anything which shocked me. they wanted to make sure that it was fixed correctly.
I will be going back as there are a few things I want them to look at.

So I'm going to drive it like Zombies are coming for me to make sure it's 1000 mile worthy.
Thanks for all your help and I'll be lurking around once I decide to tackle the next thing.
