(f) With the engine idling, measure the fluid level in the oil reservoir.

(g) Stop the engine.

(h) Wait a few minutes and remeasure the fluid level in the oil resetvoir.

Maximum fluid level rise: 5 mm (0.20 in.)

if a problem Is found, bleed power steering system (See page SR-4).

(i) Check the fluid level.

2. CHECK STEERING FLUID PRESSURE

(a) Disconnect the pressure feed tube from the PS vene pump (See page SR-24).

(b) Connect SST, as shown in the illustration below.

SST 09640-10010 (09641-01010, 09641-01030, 09641-01060)

NOTICE:

Check that the valve of the SST is in the open position.

09640 10010

(c) Bleed the power steering system (See page SR-4).

(d) Start the engine and run it at idle.

(e) Turn the steering wheel from lock to lock several times to boost fluid temperature.

Fluid temperature: 80 °C(176 aF)

(f) With the engine idling, close the valve of the SST and observe the reading on the SST. Minimum fluid pressure: 7,355 kPa (75 kgf/cm2,1,067 psi) NOTICE:

Do not keep the valve closed for more than 10 seconds.

Do not let the fluid temperature become too high.

(g) With the engine idling, open the valve fully.

(h) Measure the fluid pressure at engine speeds of 1,000 rpm and 3,000 rpm.

Difference fluid pressure: 490 kPa (5 kgf/cm2, 71 psi) or less NOTICE:

Do not turn the steering wheel.

(i) With the engine idling and valve fully opened, turn the steering wheel to full lock. Minimum fluid pressure: 7,355 kPa (75 kgf/cm2,1,067 psi) NOTICE:

Do not maintain lock position for more than 10 seconds.

• Do not let the fluid temperature become too high.

(j) Disconnect the SST.

SST 09640-10010 (09641-01010, 09641-01030, 09641-01060)

(k) Connect the pressure feed tube to the PS vane pump

(See page SR-32). (i) Bleed the power steering system (See page SR-4).
