If this occurs only when it is cold.... stiff steering then snaps loose, and problem goes away hot,, then it is commonly termed "morning sickness" and needs a new rack and pinion unit

What could be the problem?


If it's the front end that is shaking, check the ball joints, motor mounts and idler arm. Lift the front end of the van until tires are off the ground. Wiggle the front tires side to side checking for slack, use a pry bar or 2x4 to lift the wheels to check for slack. Everything should be tight. Have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth while the van is on the ground and look for loose connections in the front end. If any loose connections are found replace them. A mechanic can do a front end inspection for you for little cost if any at all. CV Joints generally do not cause any vibration when they are worn out; however, they will cause a lot of clicking noise when you turn corners once they have worn out.

Bleed power steering on 2008 dodge avenger


to bleed power steering, with front wheels off ground slightly with front wheels pointing straight ahead.engine off. remove power steering filler cap.add power steering until fluid level stop dropping,wait couple minutes and wait, add fluid until level stay at full cold mark on power steering cap dip stick. dont over fill.when fluid level stop dropping, start vechicle,let it idle few minutes. see if fluid level drop if so add more fluid full cold mark.then turn steering all the way to left and right with out hitting a stop.turn steering wheel several times, then turn front wheels pointing forward check power steering fluid level.if power steering fluid level stop dropping air should be out of system, if steering turning wheel dont turn smoothly and power steering fluid look light tan color air getting in the system.check all power steering lines to rack and power steering pump for leaks.be sure you replaced all the power steering lines with new o rings if not you will get a leak.if you find a leak, you need to fix the leak and bleed system again.dont drive vechicle if your steering dont feel right,have vechicle towed to a garage.

How do you bleed the power steering pump


1.check belt not too loose/tight
2.turn wheel over full lock and hold for about 30 secs then other lock.
that is about all you can do(whining noise normally associated with pump clutch,steering wheel would vibrate as you turn if it had air in system).to bleed the pump you loosen the out pipe on full lock,then tighten when fluid appears.

My steering wheel got stiff


Check the fluid level in the Steeing pump resevoir, and also look for oil drip traces on the ground, underneath the normal parking area at home.

Hello, I have a Suzuki Grand Vitara (2006). This morning, all of a sudden, I found it very difficult to turn left and right. It drives fine if I don't have to turn. :( The steering wheel gets very hard...


well, the first thing to check is the power steering fluid, make sure thats full. next thing is to make sure the belt is still on for the power steering and that it is tight,a loose or missing belt will cause this, if the fluid is full and belt is tight then we may be looking at a bad power steering pump or steering gear. to find out which of the two is the problem a preasure test needs to be done on the pump. hope this helps.

Why does my van squeel


You didn't say what type of pump was replaced, water, power steering, or ??? 
If it was the power steering pump you may be low on fluid or the belt is not tight enough. If it was the water pump it still may be the power steering belt was not tighten enough.
Go to www.youtube.com, type in power steering belt and select the appropriate video and it will show you how.
