This problem is always caused by a defective rack and pinion steering unit, flush the system and replace the rack.

Often times when I turn the wheel all the way weather left or right. and weather in forward or in reverse doesn't matter the truck kills. its a 2001 dodge dakota automatic.


on most power steering pumps there is a single wire idle up switch to compensate for load caused by pump switch is on pump check connection also try to find a clear parking lot drive in slow circle steer all the way see if engine dies while moving at slow speed will use less effort if engine doesnt die then check the p/s idle up switch

I have a 1988 Dodge Dakota 4x4 that is stuck in park


Try wiggling the steering wheel left and right as you turn the key - sometimes the steering wheel lock can stop the key from turning if there is pressure on it.

this is at least one bad wheel bearing, the bearing that is bad will be on the side of the direction you steer that lessens the noise.

Power steering


Make sure the fluid level is OK, if reservoir MT ad, with out the cap till air comes out and fluid gets in to system, turn the steering right to left wile You add fluid with cap off, till fluid is not longer going down and reservoir inside gets quiet, when fluid level is OK, put cap back and try it, if system did not recovered normality and loud noise comes from the pump, pump needs replacing, if steering is steel hard, no noise comes from pump, look a steering box or steering arms, if truck has Rakenpinon, look for broken boots, pit man arm
