Question about 1997 Dodge Neon
Got a noisy power steering and I had to rev it to start and it would often die at intersections when I didn't keep the RPMs up.I don't know if this is related, but my car also loses power steering and has for some time. Is there any obvious solutions or things I can check?
The noisy power steering comes from to less or dirty power steering oil.
So please, replace that oil, and clean the reservoir and filter ( mostly IN the reservoir ).
**** the oil out of the reservoir. Turn the steering from left to right and back, and re-empty the reservoir. So on till most of the oil gets out.
Then clean up reservoir and all possible parts.
Refill reservoir. Turn steering totally left and right again. Refill reservoir if necessary. Go on till no air bubbles comes up in the reservoir. Top up oil to level.
Give it a try!

There should be a pressure switch for the power steering that regulates rpm' to the computer.
It should have an electrical connector on it and located on the rack and pinion assembley.
