Question about 2003 Dodge Caravan
There is a problem related to the PS pump that causes it to quit working for short periods of time, this makes the steering wheel very hard, making you think the pump is low on fluid or defective. happens more often when parking the vehicle or making sharp turns at low speed.
This problem can be cause by.:
PS fluid low. Bent, restricted PS fluid line PS fluid cooler air flow restricted. (fluid gets too hot and starts making air bubbles) that make PS Pump to act like it is out of fluid.. Reservoir tank screen/filter clogged. The mesh of which the filter is made out of is very fine so It does not take much for this filter to clog up.
Check lines for kinks, bangs and bending, PS fluid cooler for obstructions and dirt and reservoir tank fluid level, if they look OK, flush the system, replace reservoir tank and add new PS fluid.. This fixes the problem most of the time.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!
