Re: my 2004 dodge stratus won't steer
Well it's one of three things:
1. The fluid has leaked out and you should check for leaks and check the fluid level.
2. If the level is fine your power steering pump could be bad.
3. If the level is fine your rack and pinion could be bad.

the pump dies when the engine stalls or runs too slow.
so, the steering has nothing to do with that , unless the
pump seized, so drop the belt and start car.
if car will not start, that is a no start question
post it as, cranks fast but will not start. and what engine option
some have diesel.
You'll need to be able to get the car up pretty high because you'll have to lower the front subframe. First disconnect it from the steering column under the dash,pinch bolt, so you can lower the gear and subframe. Raise car up, You'll need to lower the rear of the frame not the front leaving the gear on the frame. This makes it easer to access the gear bolts and lines. Once lower and everthing is unbolted, you may have to disconnect the lower steering shaft from the gear in order to get it out. It should be a roll pin that you will drive out. Everthing else is straight forward, tie rods etc.The lower shaft is master splined so you won't have worry about getting it on wrong. One caution, don't let the steering wheel turn after column is diconnected. It will damage the clockspring in the upper column later.
