It may not be the pump that is the cause of the leak, it may be the result of a different problem. (bad PS line, clogged, stripped connector, bad rack & pinion if equipped)

How do i change a 2000 dodge dakota power steering pump?


First--- why are you considering changing it?

How do you know the pump is the problem,
within the power steering system?

I think you when you look at it, you will see
on that vehicle, that you can get at it fairly
easily & unbolt it.

2000 dakota sport leaks power steering fluid where high pressure line connects to pump. i have replaced the o ring and it slowed it down but did not stop it. I have replaced the o ring twice. What next?


Try some teflon tape on threaded end of hose where o ring went. Also look closely at compression fitting where hose and metal crimp meets, they can leak there. Have seen that on occasion.

Power steering fluid is leaking and makes really weird sounds


Issue is not likely to be the power steering pump. The sounds are made when there is low fluid in the pump/system. Cheapest check is to make sure that the feed and return lines at the pinion housing are firmly attached. You could also have a leaking seals in the rack and pinion assembly. If you see bubbles in the power steering fluid and there is pressure in the power steering system, this is a strong indicator that the issue is seals and not the pump itself. In Regina, Canada, Canadian Tire charges $45 for an inspection. To replace the power steering pump is about $300, and just the hoses is about $145. Obviously the $45 inspection is your best bet.

Dakota power steering leak


That's the power steering pressure switch and it is very easy to replace. I don't know how much the part is, but it cant be very much. It's a very simple switch. I'd just replace it.

How do you change power steering pump on a 2004 Dodge Dakota


If the pressure hose has a hole in it you will never stop the leak because the fluid can reach 2500 psi. You will have to replace the hose. If the leak is at a fitting you can most likely replace the "o"-ring or washer . Hope this helps.

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
