There could be several causes. You could need your tires balanced, you might have unevenly worn tires caused by loose steering parts or worn shock absorbers. Have a tire shop check the tires. If the vibration gets worse when applying the brakes it indicates warped rotors. If they have not reached minimum thickness they may be able to be resurfaced - however - resurfacing removes more material and takes away their ability to get rid of heat, meaning they could warp again sooner. Fast driving and hard braking causes the heat that causes warpage.

1500 hemi 5.7 Changed power steering pump. About 1,500 miles later the steering is very hard at low speeds. Is there air in the system, bad pump, or maybe rac & pin issue?


Jack the truck up and see if it's hard to turn . Now if you did nor flush power steering system the pump could have gone bad . Most power steering pumps carry a warranty on them wouldn't hurt to swap it out he can do the work yourself but it sounds like your rack and pinion is starting to fail

1998 Honda CR-V makes low pitched shuddering or growling noise intermittently when turning sharp right or left at very low speeds.


YOU should find that if you let off the turn a bit and not turn on hard full lock,, now do this stopped and someone sitting in the drivers seat and bonnet open and turning the steering wheel with engine running in idle
if the noise goes and the shuddering goes then its the powered steering pump is either low in fluid or airrating or if belt driven then see if belt is trying to stop on full lock and if it is then try a new belt or other wise its the pump faulty.

2006 Dodge Ram 1500 service 4wd light


Erik,
There actually is a sensor for the fluid, so yes. You should check the fluid in the differential. You could try to do this yourself, or you could take it to a shop you trust. Yes, it's also possible that the fluid is low, and when you are stopping or slowing down the sensor isn't picking up the fluid, so then the light comes on to warn you that it's low in fluid. Hope this helps. Please rate my solution, thanks.
