Steering on Toyota Tacoma

Lindsay Jones

Asked by Lindsay Aug 27, 2008 at 02:49 PM about the 2005 Toyota Tacoma

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Does anyone else have trouble steering their tacoma from a stand still? I mean, backing out of parking spots, when you're going really slowly, my steering wheel is REALLY hard to turn, its do-able but I just wanted to know if anyone else had this problem or if its just me?

A common problem with a lot of vehicles. Since the power steering is operated by fluid pressure generated from a belt-driven pump, when you're operating at lower speeds there is less fluid assist.

ahh i see, never thought of that, thanks!


What if you have this and don't have power steering?


Intermediate Steering Shaft #2 is seizing as on most Tacomas, causing a stiff steering problem. Mine is 2008 with same problem (32500 miles)
