Just a heads up, $10 bucks will buy you a seal kit for the P.S. pump. I topped mine off for a couple months, then the oring on the high pressure line (from pump, front center) blew and dumped the reservoir in a matter of miles.

The line can be a stinker to get off, recommend driving the car for a few minutes to heat up the pump a little. Don't forget the 20MM wrench.

SOURCE: 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee squeaking and power steering

It very well could be the pawer steering pump. But to isolate the squeking sound, take that can of wd-40 and find the idler pully and tensior pully. Spray the bearing area of both pulleys. If your bearing in those pulleys are going bad then it will make that noise. If the wd-40 quits the noise at one of those tow pulleys then you know which one to replace. If its does not, then start looking to replace the powersteering pump. I take it you have checked the power steering fluid levels and they are ok?? Also, you stated that the noise started after you bought the alternator, then try a new alternator. It might of just been a faulty alternator. Happens all the time. One last inexpensive tip is replacing all belts with new. Belts get glazed over and dirty and cause noise too. One last question. Did you make sure the belts were tight enough? Just a little variance in the belt tension can make the difference.

You know for a fact no power is being sent to the front axle? This transfer case only sends power to the front axle when the rear axle is slipping. Are there any unusual noises in the front axle?

If it is the transfer case, replacing it is not too big of a deal. If you are the least bit confident of your abilities, then you can do it yourself. I believe you have the NP242 transfer case, but I could be wrong. There will be a tag on the back side of the case, facing the rear axle, to the left of the drive shaft. On that tag, it will tell you which case you have. You can either have yours rebuilt, or buy a replacement either new or used.

To remove the t-case, first drain the fluid. Next remove the front driveshaft by removing the four bolts holding the u-joint in place. Then remove the rear drive shaft by doing the same as the front driveshaft, only this time it's at the rear differential. Once the drive shaft is free, support the full weight of the driveshaft, not that heavy, and pull it out of the t-case and set aside. Disconnect the shifter linkage and wiring harness. Next, remove the bolts that connect the t-case to the t-case cross member. Lift slightly and support the tranny/t-case assembly and remove the cross member. The t-case isn't very heavy, but you don't want it falling on your head, so remember to support it as you remove the bolts that connect it to the rear of the tranny. Once you bring it out from under the Jeep, and it's rebuilt or you have another unit to replace it, installation is the reverse of removal. Just remember to refill the t-case with the proper fluid.

Its really hard to turn the steering wheel in 1995 cadillac deville. there is power steering fluid in the car. what could be causing this?


If your Rack and Pinion is worn it could do this, if the Fluid is OLD, it could also do that. How much Power Steering is there? Did you hit anything? Could your have bent a Control Arm or Tie Rod End or could the Power Steering Pump just have gone out? Remove the Cap and see if there is Air Bubbles and Movement inside your Pump Reservoir? Are you sure you are checking the Right Reservoir? Any of the above could be the cause.

Jeep grand Cherokee does the power steering cap


Open the hood of your Jeep Grand Cherokee. Locate the power steering pump and reservoir on the front driver's side of the engine.
Wipe the cap and area around it with a clean rag or paper towel. This will keep dirt out of the system, when you open the cap, as well as keeping some of the dirt and grease off your hands.
Remove the cover from the power steering reservoir by turning it counterclockwise. Lift straight up on the cover to lift the cover and dip stick out of the reservoir.
Note the fluid level on the dip stick. There are several marks indicating "Add" as well as a mark for "Full." If the level is at or below the "Add" mark, you will need to add a small amount of fluid to the system.
Replace the cap onto the reservoir and turn it clockwise to tighten it. Close the hood of the Jeep, making sure it is latched securely.

Power steering reservoir has small foam like bubbles when engine is turned on


no history, why did you add fluid? ( it dont just go away. by self)
did you use the wrong fluid, Jeeps use very special fluid
if you use the wrong fluid or mix them (10x worse that) it will fail.
call jeep and ask them what is the correct fluid.
i once did it wrong (thanks to NAPA lies) and used the wrong fluid,
at he time there was no after market fluid for jeeps.
i had to go to jeep. and buy it.
1st hit on a real jeep forum
try there.

Steering wheel play


Try reaccomplishing the bleed procedures and that should help your problem!

SYSTEM BLEEDING
  1. Fill the steering pump with fluid. Operate the engine until it reaches normal operating temperature, then stop the engine.
  2. Turn the wheels to the full left and full right position to circulate the fluid. Add fluid to reservoir to maintain full level. Start the engine. Check the fluid level and add if necessary.
  3. Purge the system of air by turning the wheels from side-to-side without going to the full left or right position.
  4. Return the wheels to straight ahead position and operate the engine for 2-3 minutes, then stop the engine. Add fluid necessary. Road test the vehicle.

I have a jeep grand cherokee and the power steering keeps going stiff is it the power steering pump or steering box


If it only goes stiff part of the time, the box is probably OK.

Before considering major surgery:
  • check the power steering fluid level.
  • condition of the fluid
  • condition and tension on the belts
  • check for low or uneven tire pressure
  • check steering linkages for damage (did someone borrow the car recently?)
If none of these check out, then consider replacing the pump.
