Was driving straight at 40 mph and car steering jerked hard to the right and then left

You\'d better have your rack and pinion (the steering gear) checked. That is where the power steering pump sends the fluid to and returns from there. Something is wrong for it to jerk like that. There must be some undue pressure for it to push the cap up-something like a blockage, perhaps. I would have a shop look at it. It may be time for a new rack and pinion gear. If it comes to that, be sure and have the old PS pump and lines and PS reservoir flushed or cleaned out. You don\'t want any of that old fluid to ruin the new rack. Check for dirt, crud, or sludge in the fluid.

Causes car jerk

Car needs to warm up properly so that the automatic choke disengages completely,
After allowing the car to run at idle for a minute or two,
Give the accelerator pedal a quick push to about 1/3 throttle,
Idle speed should drop back to normal running speed and the car drive properly

There are quite a few things to check here like the rear axle pinion bearing preload and all the wheel hub bearings. The best they you can do is run it while on a rack in 4wd and listen to it from underneith the vehicle.

My 2000 caravan jerks to the right when it shifts

I would have the transaxle mount on the driver side engine compartment checked. One way to get an idea if it may be shot is to start engine, apply park brake, put transaxle in reverse and with one foot on main brake pedal and other on gas give the gas a quick tap and see if you hear a loud thump which will be the transaxle flexing the trans mount. If the rubber insulator is shot then you'll hear it.

sound like your powersteering pump or steering rack and pinion
could be bad.i would say it is your rack and pinion because if your pump was bad your steering would be real hard to turn instead of being jerky.jerking is usally the sign of a bad rack
