Lack of power steering fluid in the power steering pump would be the easy answer.there is a dip stick on the cap.

Hard steering

The high and/or low side power steering hoses are failing.
Locate it with the help of a white tissue wipes.
Replace it ASAP before it burst and paint the driveway.

My '99 Intrepid won't run. Replaces the throttle

looks like your intrepid has what is know as a driveability problem
1. electric fuel pump is failing
2. injectors are mis-firing due to clogs: 1 or more has failed
3. someone has been naughty and dumped something in your fuel tank while you slept

My 1994 Intrepid recently began to make a different sound when i rev the engine. It is a high pitched squeal, it sounds like a go-cart. The steering wheel also makes a loud grinding sound when i turn it.

check your power steering fluid and pump, also these units have a problem with the rack and pinion unit, but start at the power steering fluid resovior and look for leaks, low fluid will cause the pump to starve for fluid cause irrepairable damage and noise as well... please rate my help, thanks

My 1999 dodge Intrepid makes a loud whining noise (like a power steering pump) any time it is running... Any ideas on what it could be?

if the winning noise gets louder when you turn the steering wheel, it is the power steering pump.
99 to 04 intrepids have a serpintine belt with a self tightner.what i did with mine is **** the old power steering fluid out with a shop vac.replaced half with new fluid and top up with a transmission/power steering fluid additive.the noise went away after a couple of days.

OIL LEAK 2002 dodge intrepid

Hi there!

It realy would be best to get it up on ramps to find out where the leak is.

Did it start at the same time as the flat tyre - i.e. did you go over something? if so, it may have stressed the steering (if power steering) and caused a seal failure. Or it may be that the sump has recieved a blow, causing the sump pan seal to leak a bit - or even crack.

If the oil is black - it's probably the sump, if lighter in colour, it is probably steering rack fluid or brake fluid.

Check the oil levels to see which one it is. If there is a large leak, or the brake fluid or steering fluid is leaking, the car is best recovered for repair, as driving it is dangerous.

Hope this helps. If it leads to a solution, please take a moment to rate as Fixya! Thank you.
