Which belt would it be and can it be tightened.

My mom's '93 Mr2 with 52k on it has the powersteering light come on for extended periods of time and then will go off. While this is occurring, the car has no power steering either. What can be causing this problem? Not one service tech can figure this problem out. If it matters, she purchased this car when it was new.

When I accelerate it stays on, but also jilts when going to 2nd and 3rd.

Have a 93 toyota mr2 this alternator belt broke one day on my way home replace the built the next day the car wouldn't start check the main alternator 20 amp fuse was blown replaced but the car still will not crank will turn over but wont start what could be the problem also I replaced the distributor cap rotor button and wires and plugs holding one of my old plugs and spark plug wire against the motor the motor does have spark was just checking something pulled the number 2 and number 3 plug wire and swap them in the car halfway started what could be the problem

I purchased a 93 MR2 from a friend. It has not been started in 1.5 yrs. Before it was put into storage, the owner did disconnect the battery. I plan on picking the car up Feb 17, 2015. Besides purchasing a new battery, what else should I check for in order to get the car running? The car was running great prior to storage.

not sure what it could be I have replaced the throttle position sensor, EGR vacuum solenoid, plugs and wires, transmission shift solenoids, distributor cap and rotor button, coil pack ,flushed and clean engine and tranny inside and out , and still having the same problem . the car starts and runs great but when put in gear stalls out will drive in L, and once little past 20 miles per hour able to put it in D and it will drive but has hardly any power.
Anyone know what it could possibly be?

Having issues starting up the cars most as it is, but now when the car is idling under 1000 after a warm up idle it stalls out and it wont start up again. Most days it has a hard time starting up as it is could these factor the same problem?

if hold throttle to stop it stalling when warmed up its perfect

If I shut the car off and let it sit for a few minutes, then start it back up I can drive it for a few miles before it does it again. Could this be the shift solenoid? or is my transmission going out? I have changed out the trans filter and did a flush. This doesn't happen all the time, it's sporadic. Thank you.

The ignition lock cylinder in her MR2 will not turn most times. It's a manual so it's not a transmission shifter issue and the steering where isn't bound up. I know that those are 2 pretty common problems. If I have to replace the lock cylinder is there any tricks to making it easier?
