Re: where to i place the jack when changing a tire on a...
If you have the owners manual it will say where to exactly place the jack. If not one can be picked up at a junk yard for a couple of dollars. One thing they probably won't tell you in the owners manual is that when removing the tire to never put your hands at the 6 and 12 o'clock positions on the tire. I don't mean to scare you, but this is very dangerous due to the fact that if the vehicle slips off the jack your hands could get crushed either between the fender and the tire and/or between the tire and the ground. Always put your hands in the 3 and 9 o'clock positions on the tire when removing. And never crawl under the vehicle with the factory jack.
Hope this helps.

If is no leak, then maybe you need to bleed the power steering pump. jack the vehicle from the front , and leave the tires free from floor.Take off the steering pump cap, pull the steering wheel all the way to one side and hold for few seconds, let the system to bleed air , then pull all the way to the other side and do the same. somone should be looking the pump to see if air bubles are coming out, repeat as nessesary, If after this proceidure power steering still hard and noisy, replace the pump.
Note: Safety first. Use stand jacks and other security tools to prevent accidents.
Ur jack is under the right rear passenger seat (the one that fold up) and to lower the tire you have to look under the trunk compartment. there is a little circle cut out of the liner. pull that up and there is the knob. happy hunting.
The tire may need a good kick to loosen the rusted/corroded bond to the axle, usually in the center section. Light sanding and a film of grease to the area after the wheel is off will help future removal.
CHANGING A FLAT TIRE
In the Durango, the scissor jack and tire changing tools
are stowed under the second row seat.
The jack is secured in place with a winged stud and a
fixed stud. It is very important to secure the jack tightly
in place by engaging the slot in the base to the fixed stud
under the middle seat. The winged stud inserts through
the eyelet in the end of the jack’s worm screw.
place the jack under the passenger door about 6-12 inches away from the wheel and about 6 inches in from the edge of the car. You just need to make sure it's on part of the frame. Do no jack it up via the wheel assembly or the undercarriage
