Question about 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan AWD
My 2003 dodge grand caravan started whining in the front end a couple of months ago. It seemed like when it warmed up the noise would go away. Today the noise is constant and it seems to be worse when I am turning.
I had the same problem, my mechanic has had this same problem with other 2003 grand caravans. Flush the power steering fluid, replace it with ATF+4 and add Lucas power steering additive. Apparently dodge has posted the fluid that was originally used is causing this problem. $100 and it is purring like a kitten

We lived with this problem for years (2003 Grand Caravan). No mechanic could figure it out, including the dealership. I found a solution on the Internet and I was ecstatic when it worked! The problem is that the power steering reservoir gets clogged. I recommend you replace it. It's a plastic part that costs about $30. Ask a mechanic for a quote on the labor -- it's probably about a 20 minute job.

The dealership tried to charge my wife around $1100 and say it was the rack and steering, took it to my regular car guy and he charged me little over $300 for some joint that was worn out on the front.
