The Power Steering Belt tension requires adjustment, to give it more tension, to cure the slipping, resulting in the squealing, or perhaps renewal, due to cracking or excessive wear.
Your Power steering Belt, belt is your primary problem.
Good Luck !
A FixYa Would Be Nice, Thank´s......John.

There is a relatively simple solution to the problem you and many others are having. The power steering reservoir contains a mesh screen filter. Over time it will start to plug up and cause the symptom you and many others are having. Replacing the reservoir will 99% of the time resolve the issue. I have done this successfully on many Caravans, Town and Countrys, and Voyagers.
The part is available from you local Dodge dealer.
1. remove the two screws that hold the reservoir to the intake plenum.
2. Loosen the nut on the backside and under the reservoir. It is in between the coil and the reservoir. a 10mm socket and extension will work.
3. place a bunch of rags under the reservoir to catch the power steering fluid that will spill.
4. remove the two hoses from the reservoir.
After you intsll the new one top of with ATF+4 transmission fluid. This is the only fluid that is recommended for you P/S system by the Dealer. Typically I will flush the power steering system prior to installing the new reservoir to make sure the fluid is as clean as possible in order to get the maximum life from the new reservoir.
hope that helps. Let me know if you have any questions.

to bleed power steering, with front wheels off ground slightly with front wheels pointing straight ahead.engine off. remove power steering filler cap.add power steering until fluid level stop dropping,wait couple minutes and wait, add fluid until level stay at full cold mark on power steering cap dip stick. dont over fill.when fluid level stop dropping, start vechicle,let it idle few minutes. see if fluid level drop if so add more fluid full cold mark.then turn steering all the way to left and right with out hitting a stop.turn steering wheel several times, then turn front wheels pointing forward check power steering fluid level.if power steering fluid level stop dropping air should be out of system, if steering turning wheel dont turn smoothly and power steering fluid look light tan color air getting in the system.check all power steering lines to rack and power steering pump for leaks.be sure you replaced all the power steering lines with new o rings if not you will get a leak.if you find a leak, you need to fix the leak and bleed system again.dont drive vechicle if your steering dont feel right,have vechicle towed to a garage.
