You have a leak in the power steering system. It should be easy to find just look for where the fluid is dropping onto the ground below the vehicle while parked, then look under the vehicle to see where the leak is coming from. Make repairs as needed.

SOURCE: 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee leaking coolant and power steering fluid

Just a heads up, $10 bucks will buy you a seal kit for the P.S. pump. I topped mine off for a couple months, then the oring on the high pressure line (from pump, front center) blew and dumped the reservoir in a matter of miles.

The line can be a stinker to get off, recommend driving the car for a few minutes to heat up the pump a little. Don't forget the 20MM wrench.

SOURCE: BMW 325i BAD transmission fluid leak/gush

i have to admit without more detail it's hard to say.... my educated guess would be that one of the hoses to the transmission cooler has blow and needs to be replaced. do NOT drive the car till that is done.

SOURCE: 2006 Town and Country: Loud Whinning noise when

the noise may be because your power steering fluid level is low when cold, as the fluid warms up it expands enough to stop the whine, you should have the leak checked by your favorite mechanic shop

SOURCE: power steering pump leak. i hear a whinning noise,

90% of the time the problem is not the pump, but the hose connections. Detach the connections, clean any debis on the threads and reattach. Be careful not to cross thread when reattaching and don't over-tighten. Making a connection too tight might warp the connection and cause a leak. In severe cases you may need to replace the hoses. They are available at most auto parts store and will save you $$ over going to a dealer.

My 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo is running hot, should I believe it is the water pump? I still have heat.

Yes a bad water pump will definitely cause it to run hot. you'll probably be able to hear it as well as a whinning noise from the front of the engine. Also check for really low or incorrect fluid. jeeps are know for bad water pumps and leaky radiators. the heater pump is a seperate pump from the water pump. Also check for radiator fan opperation while the vehicle is stopped. If the fan is not coming on, it could be a fuse, relay, or intake air temp sensor.

Power steeringts been making like wining noise for the past couple of weeks but 2 days it started to make like a knocking sound

First check the fluid level.Add fluid if needed.If the sound goes away you have to look for a fluid leak.If the level is ok the pump needs replacing or to be rebuilt.The power steering hoses do have a problem with leaking with vehicles around this age.All the Jeep models do.For a shop it is not a big job to r&r a pump.Hope this helps

When I turn sharp turns my jeep makes a growling noise, like the 4 wheeldrive is activated why? It just started doing this about 6 mos ago

Which transfer case do you have? Does it have AWD or 4WD? Does it only do it while the steering wheel is being turned, or all the way through the turn?

If it does it only while turning the steering wheel, there is a bushing in the steering column that is making noise. I have seen this happen on an '00 and '01. If it is making noise all the way through the turn, and you have AWD, it probably is the front axle. A neighbor of mine had this happen on her '00. Turns out the front axle wasn't filled properly from the factory. Added the appropriate amount of gear oil and noise went away.

If you have 4WD, make sure you're not driving around with the transfer case locked in.

Steering is choppy / groans at startup

The first economical solution is to have a shop to change out the steering fluid and the filter to see if improved. If it os not then we can talk about the steering pump service. Good luck.

1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6 cyl 4wd

Check fluid level in transmission. If full, drop pan and check that filter is not plugged. If both are fine, have a trans shop take a look at it. Internal transmission work although not impossible to do, is generally best left for the people that do it for a living. Even most skilled automotive techs opt to have their units done elsewhere, even if they remove it themselves.
I know that you'd rather that I tell you that it's something easy but it's just not.
