Hi there mudders,

I got an LX450 where I noticed some small leaks by the front a while back. The truck is rarely used so I didn’t bother working on it. Recently I tried driving it and the steering is very hard. I figured the leak was power steering fluid. I bought some ATF to refill but the reservoir is full.

Does that mean I need a new PS pump?

Could be the pump or box. Is it noisy? Open the cap when it's idling and see if there's fluid flow, bump the throttle if it's not obvious.
