How do you replace the power steering pump for a 1987 Toyota Supra?
In order of MY observations: connections, hoses, power steering pump and finally rack or steering gear, although rack is becomming much more common.
It does not have a power steering filter.
On the left side of the engine (right side if your in front of the car looking at the engine bay) you'll see a white-ish round plastic fluid container with a red cap, and two hoses connected to it. You'll also see level markers molded into the power steering fluid container showing the max and min power steering fluid levels. The steering fluid can be seen through the simi transparent plastic, indicating the current amount of fluid in the res container.
The power steering fluid reservoir is located at the front of the motor on the driver's side. To check it, turn the motor off and remove the black nut on the lid. It should be about 1/2 inch from the top.
My Haynes book says that all Ford Taurus(es) & Mercury Sable(s) from 1986-1990 use Motorcraft Type F automatic transmission fluid for the power steering fluid. The transmission fluid doubles as the power steering fluid.FYI 1986 and 1987 automatic trans-axle fluid is Motorcraft Type H automatic transmission fluid and 1988 onward is Motorcraft Mercon automatic transmission fluid.The brand doesn't matter so much as the right type of fluid.Hope this helps.
Dexron or Mercon III or one that is compatible with those two types. Power steering takes Type F Transmission fluid.

In the engine compartment, rear right corner. Note it takes ATF, NOT power steering fluid. Brake and clutch fluid are behind the speedometer- reach behind the plastic cover, you'll find two plastic notches- pull up (hard) on these and the cover pivots forward revealing the fluid storage.
