Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus
When we turn the steering wheel, it makes a whining noise, almost more of a screech. Lately, when the car first starts, it's harder to turn the wheel. Once we get going above 25 or so mph, it gets easier again. We are thinking it's the power steering pump, but aren't sure. Or, if we just refill the power steering fluid, would that solve it?
Dear Screech And Whine......What you have described is definitely a power steering concern. And yes the fluid is low.....thanks for the accurate problem description!! You are correct on the filling the fluid part also......but keep in mind that if your power steering fluid is lo that you might very well also have a ps leak too.You can do a visual check and trace all of your ps lines to make sure that no fluid is escaping anywhere.....You ae more tha welcome to get back to me if you have any further questions...HOPE I COULD HELP!!!
