Customer Question
2001 tundra 2wd with...

2001 tundra 2wd with v6. Over 200,000 miles. I lose power steering only when the motor warms up. Works good when engine is cool. Outside temp is 85f.

Mechanic's Assistant: When was the fluid last checked? Have you heard any whining noises while turning the wheel?

Fluid is good, no noises and fully functional when cool.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tundra yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, and nothing.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

My thought was pressure was getting improperly regulated by faulty senor.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started

Sounds like your pump is going bad, have you checked the reservoir for trash? is it making noise? has it lost fluid lately? is the original pump ?
