Lift the Vehicle
Remove the Serpentine Belt
Remove the Air Cleaner Assembly
Remove the Two Power Steering Hoses.  The one on the Top have a Band on them.  use Pliers to remove the Band.  Then remove the hose.  Make sure you have something to catch the oil.

Next Remove the lower Hose with a Wrench (not sure on size)
There are three bolts that connect the PS pump to the block.  The easiest way is to go between the Air Cleaner Assembly and the Fuel System to get to the three bolts.  I think they were 13 mm socket.  You will need a deep well and a short socket wrench will work best.  This is a very tight fit so good luck, expect scars and make sure the Engine is cool.

2003 dodge grand caravan problems with whining noise. Had power steering Pump replaced. Still whining noise . Louder when turning the steering wheel.


There is a relatively simple solution to the problem you and many others are having. The power steering reservoir contains a mesh screen filter. Over time it will start to plug up and cause the symptom you and many others are having. Replacing the reservoir will 99% of the time resolve the issue. I have done this successfully on many Caravans, Town and Countrys, and Voyagers.

The part is available from you local Dodge dealer.

To remove
1. remove the two screws that hold the reservoir to the intake plenum.
2. Loosen the nut on the backside and under the reservoir. It is in between the coil and the reservoir. a 10mm socket and extension will work.
3. place a bunch of rags under the reservoir to catch the power steering fluid that will spill.
4. remove the two hoses from the reservoir.

After you intsll the new one top of with ATF+4 transmission fluid. This is the only fluid that is recommended for you P/S system by the Dealer. Typically I will flush the power steering system prior to installing the new reservoir to make sure the fluid is as clean as possible in order to get the maximum life from the new reservoir.

hope that helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

I dont know where it is


it is located behind the power steering pump. You need to remove the power steering pump to get to it which requires removing the engine mount next to it to get the bottom bolt out of the power steering pump. The sensor is directly behind the power steering pump. You can follow the cable that goes behind the pump. It is the only one there.
