Power Steering Pump Replacement

Recommended Posts

I am replacing the powering steering pump, hoses, altenator, and starter. I ordered the AMSOIL SYNTHECTIC TRANS FLUID and will use it in place of the Toyota fluid. Has anyone used the AMSOIL? Can I get the pros & cons? Let me know.

The manual calls for Toyota Type IV in the trans, and Dexron ( of any designation ) in the power steering system.

As far as I am concerned, Amsoil is used by people who once were, or perhaps still are, Moonies. Strictly cult stuff.

What does your signature mean?

Steering pump, hoses, alternator, and starter. Did all of these fail at the same time? Seems odd to have to have to do some many major items at once. Are they all unrelated?

Well...I'm not part of a cult or part of the Moonies :unsure:...but I just hope that it doesn't mess up my car... :)

What my signature means is basically saying use intellegence instead of ignorance whenever you face hardships, situations, or circumstance... B)

I was a victim of the infamous failing power steering pump...pump leakes fluid on the altenator, altenator start to short them both eventually die....as far as my starter, it just died being that my Lexus is a '91....

I don't think Amsoil will hurt anything, but whether it's worth the extra money or superior to the Toyota/Lexus fluids is doubtful.

I can't imagine you're talking about a 9 iron in golf....or is it a metric designation? In imperial measure I prefer a .45 inch....

Thanks for your input SDK...I appreciate it...but when I mention 9, I'm not talking about golf, I'm talking about a 9mm gun...No, I don't advocate violence but it's just a term/statement of basically saying let's use intellegence instead of resorting to violence...

I'm aware I was just bringing to light the absurdity of gangster like references on a Lexus Luxury car forum.

Ditto...and just to be clear, it is not gangsta absurd to lower your Lex and put "20's" on it. :whistles: <_<
