I'm having some power steering issues, although intermittent it's still incredibly annoying. I have perfect power steering for 100 miles or so, then goes away for 80 miles or so, then it's good again. I replaced both OTRE's and got a Set of TC UCA's installed as well. That seemed to help temporarily but didn't fix it. I flushed the fluid and cleaned the resivior several months ago. My tires are worn but I've had worse on the fj without issues. Im thinking about replacing the sensor on the pump but I don't want to just start throwing parts at it hoping for the best. Any input is greatly appreciated!

Thanks Guys!

I don’t know about the power steering problem, but do you still have the parrot?

No unfortunately I had to re-home him, about a year ago. He kept attacking me and it was always out of the blue. I was able to find a lady that converted her backyard into an aviary and her being a bird expert I felt really confident that I found a good home for him. If I had boobs I would probably still have him, he was really fond of women.

That’s kinda funny.

I got him from a lady and he was nice to her. He was nice to me at first, but got aggressive with me a couple times.

That’s when you got him.

The steering link has a tiny u joint right by the rack...access thru driver wheel well....it fails and you get what you got.

Easy fix...replace it
