Hard to steer 2000 Dodge Neon but belt is okay


Check to see if you enough Steering Fluid. If the fluid was recently flushed, make sure they put right kind of fluid. I once had my fluid replace and they topped it with the wrong spec fluid. Had to reflush and put the correct fluid. Belt will usually make noise, not cause the steering to stiffen up. Hope this helps, let us know if a better answer comes along.

Need to replace power steering sencer


Not difficult to do. I had to do this for my 2002 neon. Go to your local parts store and buy a "power steering pressure switch"...should be around 20-25 dollars. It's located under the car near the driver side of the steering rack. All you need to do is unplug the wire, then use a 7/8" deep socket to remove the old switch. When installing the new one, use teflon thread seal tape on the threads and tighten snug but not too tight. Plug the wire back in and you're done. Afterwards, start the car and turn the wheel lock to lock a few times, then check for any leaking (the sensor itself can be seen from under the hood...look down behind the motor with a flashlight). Make sure the power steering fluid is at the correct level afterwards too. Good luck.

I need to add power steering fluid to my 2000 dodge neon. What kind do i need to buy?


Your owner's manual lists the correct fluid. Sometimes it is listed on the P/S fill cap. If you remove all the fluid then use ATF+4 fluid. If you are only topping it off then use ATF+3. This is the same fluid that you use in the Automatic Transmission of your Neon.

2003 Dodge Neon Code P0551 and Rough Idle


I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY 2002 DODGE NEON. THE FIX WAS TO REPLACE THE POWER STEERING PRESSURE SENSOR SWITCH. IF YOU DO IT YOURSELF IT WILL PROBABLY COST ABOUT $50 OR $60 INCLUDING THE HAYNES MANUAL TELLING YOU HOW TO DO IT. I BELIEVE THE SWITCH COST ME ABOUT $30 OR $35 FROM A DODGE DEALER. IT IS PRETTY SIMPLE. TAKE OFF THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTION GOING TO THE SWITCH AND THEN TAKE OUT THE SWITCH ITSELF WITH A PROPER SIZED WRENCH. THE SWITCH IS THREADED INTO A CONNECTION ATTACHED TO METAL HOSES THAT HAVE POWER STEERING FLUID IN THEM. HAVE THE NEW SWITCH READY TO PUT IN AFTER THE OLD ONE COMES OUT,FOR POWER STEERING FLUID WILL FLOW OUT OF THE CONNECTION. PUT THREAD TAPE ON THE THREADS OF THE NEW CONNECTION. THIS WIIL HELP TO SEAL THE SWITSH FROM LEAKS. TORQUE TO SPECS AND REINSTALL THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTION. CLEAR THE CODE AND SEE IF IT COMES BACK. MINE DID NOT. OH YES, IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE SOME POWER STEERING FLUID TO TOP OFF ANY THAT LEAKS OUT DURING THIS PROCESS.
GOOD LUCK!

Power streeing oil leeking under from car


Your Camry uses ATF ( Automatic Transmission Fluid). Your going to have to get the leak repaired, common cause is the high pressure hose is leaking and soon it will fail 100% and your going to lose your power steering. Worst is the ATF is flammable and if it hits a hot spot like the exhaust manifold, it will catch fire. Good luck and hope this helps, and don't let the fluid get too low. Low fluid in your steering pump will cause damage.

Power steering is locked up...power steering fluid full


Hi if you have no power steering assist
check to see if the power steering shaft is broken
open the hood and the power steering pump is located on lower left of the engine
use a big screw driver or even your hand and try and pull the power steering pully towards the rad
if you can move the pully out then the power steering shaft is broken and you will need to replace the power steering pump
hope this helps you

1989 volvo 740gle power steering is getting harder to steer, i need a help on this.


hi there first the obvious is the belt tight and the fluid at max the car has not been in a smash?

so if the belt it tight and fluid at max and the car is has not been in a smash then try changing the fluid it can sometimes help with tight steering.
if that dont work you need to start looking at changing the rack but look at all the connections to it as you remove them as in the nuckel joint going to the steering shaft.

hope this helps Regards JR
