Brakes don't push down, where is the power steering fliud holder?


power steering is located on the driver's side of the engine block. About half way down. Look for a round dial that says, "Power steering fluid " . Sometimes, it is difficult to locate.

I have a 1998 Dodge Dakota 4x4, I notice a noise when turning.


You need to check your brakes ASAP. You may have metal on metal on your front pads. You may have a bearing problem if the brakes are in good shape. But check it out as soon as you can to prevent further damage.

Hard to turn when i press on brakes


you need to take it back to the shop that replaced the power steering and tell them what it is doing. This is not normal and sounds unsafe. The brakes are a seperate system but when you apply the brakes you are adding force to the front end and weight resulting in the steering having to work harder. it could be a bad pump or air in the system or wrong type of fluid. I am guessing you did not have this problem before hand? take it back let the shop inspect it.

1995 Dodge Dakota Calipers


check your fluids and bleed the brake system , if that is all the issues your having . if low on fluid and keeps draining out then you have whats known as a caliper seal broken and that means $30-50 bucks for a new one/rebuilt , i know i drove mine like that for a bit and had to replace the driver side.
