2000 caravan hard steering problem

SEveral things spring to mind Check power steering pump operation. check that the drive belt is in good condition and adjusted correctly. Check fluid level. Check filter in the oil resevoir is not blocked. Moving on Hard steering is a sign of faulty wheel alignment. Not enpugh caster adjustment. Tyre pressure has to be maintained. If you steering shaft has u-joints in it check that they have not failed or become rusted up. At best have a pressure test done on the pump.

Which relay under the dash controls the fuel pump

Only the PCM and the fuel pump relay power the pump.
If the engine runs on starting fluid, we can assume the ASD relay is working because the coils have voltage from it.
You need to check to see if the pump relay has power from a 20amp fuse and a ground signal from the PCM. If it does, and you have power to the pump, the pump has failed.

2003 dodge grand caravan problems with whining noise. Had power steering Pump replaced. Still whining noise . Louder when turning the steering wheel.

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.

To remove
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.

How much power steering fluid does it hold?

the system holds just under 2 pints, depending on what part you are replacing, you may not need this much fluid. if the fluid is contaminated and you need to flush the system you may use twice this much.
