Question about 1991 Toyota Pickup
The starter won't engage if i tap it sometimes it starts and sometimes it doesn't power steering pump was leaking and fluid is covering starter and i need to replace cables can it just be not making connection
I would guess the steering fluid has gummed up your solenoid, making it difficult for your starter to engage the solenoid.

Check your power steering high pressure hose. get some brake cleaner and clean the pump , hose and starter off . you can also get a dye and put in the pump to check where the leak is coming from! if its the high pressure hose thats an easy job for DIY if your rack is leaking than take it to a mechanic I think its you hose cheap and easy to fix I got a 91 tercel with 200000 miles on it and toyotas are pretty easy to repair

The best bet is its trans oil. The gearbox has crushable washers/gaskets, the bolts may just need to be tightened slightly to crush the gasket and seal.

Sounds like the adjustment may not be correct on the power steering belt, with the tension not being enough, after you replaced the belt ?
Try giving it a little more tension, and go from there.
Hope I have been of help.
Good Luck !

it sounds like tour power steering rack and pinion may be leaking this is what you call the actuator rod.

"The leak" is probably not the pump. A closer inspect might reveal a bad hose, hose fitting or worse yet the "rack" has a bad seal. Who ever diagnosed the leak did not look close enough to verify the source of the leak. The washer story sounds suspect too.
I would take a small inspection mirror ( 1" or so in diameter), and look with a focused flahlite on exactly the drips of power sterring fluid are cming from. Some reputabile shops have a UV dye and use a black light to trace,,, but a good sarp eye and searching will spot the source leak.
Then you need to take the hose or part to the NAPA , or your choice parts store and save the money a shop or dealer would charge...
good luck jerzil

If the leak is from the pump unit or steering rack, it will need to be replaced,
If the leak is from a connection hose or coupling it can likely be readily repaired or replaced.
