    Good thing you got a steering rack, I heard that catalytic converters are a 4-5 month wait from Toyota.

    The Recall notice says Toyota will start notifying owners is January. Hopefully we won’t have any issues and parts will be available.

    Just an update. After my first drop off with most of the reservoir being empty. Two Toyota mechanics stated they could find no leak anywhere under the truck it was "bone dry". So they topped off the power steering and sent me home. Blue berthas been sitting some with the holidays and losing my job, however about 3-4 weeks later While driving around I heard the same noises as before. Pulled over and was almost empty again. I took pictures again and sent them to the assistant manager and within 3 minutes had a reply saying bring it in. An hour later I get a call they've ordered a new rack and pinion as the seal was indeed broken in some way. Truck is to be finished tomorrow afternoon so we'll see how it goes. All warranty, however I have a 2020 but the service manager said it's not uncommon for the list of Vins and years to increase after a recall is first announced.

    How many miles on your truck? Any warning signs of this before it happened or was it sudden without any warning?

    I'm currently sitting at 21,631 miles and this started a couple hundred miles ago. The only warning signs I had were some increased vibrations in the wheel the wheel getting a little heavier to turn, not returning to center as fast but the biggest sound was as if there was some amount of slippage or rustling or popping when turning the wheel and accelerating. These came over a period of roughly 5 days to a week and I thought could of been caused by some stuck plastic under front of the truck. Once I removed the plastic the noise stopped temporarily but returned a few days later. The tell tale sign was when I popped the hood and thought that's some clear power steering fluid in there. Until I realized there was very little.

    Maybe I should swing by the dealer and ask for a case or two of PS fluid N/C. Just in case mine starts this crap.

    Keep filling and then it will probably just blow out the boot and make a huge mess. I wonder if temporarily they could install some in line pressure regulator coming out of the pump?

    So my 2021 built in October was held at the Port till early November for "Steering Column Parts". I wonder if they were waiting for bad parts or the replacement parts that the recall will take care of?

    I haven't been notified of a recall the App and Toyota recall website says I have none. Maybe they held it at the Port for better parts of the fix?
