Look for wetness around the hose or power steering pump, it's probably a hose leaking or an o-ring at a hose connection or line connection to the rack and pinion.

    It could also be the rack leaking itself at the ends of the tie rods that go into the rack, the seals there.

    I'm sorry but my online resource that I use that is based on Chilton Manuals shows that there is no data on this operation... i.e. removing and replacing the pump.



    Try alldata.com, they are more comprehensive than what I have, but you have to pay for it for specific instructions on later model cars such as yours.



    I think that pumps usually don't go out unless they are run a long time on low fluid.

    If there is a leak, it's usually at a joint somewhere where there is an o-ring.



    Rubber tubes are not so durable, as well.

I have two questions...I have a 2001 dodge stratus es and it make a screeching noise when turning the wheel. what could that be and also just had the oil changed and the oil light keeps flashing when I am...


If the screeching sounds high pitched it could be a serpentine belt which would indicate it needs replacement.
If it's lower pitched the power steering pump could be low on fluid which will lead to replacing the pump if left long enough. To check the fluid look in the operator's manual and search for power steering to locate the reservoir and to determine which fluid to use. If you cannot find that search around under the hood for something indicating the power steering reservoir. If it is completely out of fluid you may have to remove air from the system by disconnecting the return hose and extending it with a clear hose which drains into a nearby container. Start the engine and begin filling the reservoir, turning the steering wheel side to side until no bubbles are seen in the hose. Stop the engine and replace the return hose.

I would recommend a mechanic or friend to help you in either case.

The flashing oil light means oil pressure is low. Check the oil level and add more if it's low. If that doesn't resolve the problem have a mechanic check it out.

The oil in my power steering is black how do I change it


First thing you need to do is remove thwe return line from your power steering reservoir. Thats the thing you put the power steering fluid in. Run that hose to a large container where you can catch a lot of fluid in. Now you want to make sure you have your new power steering fluid on hand before you start and another person would be very helpful also. Have your helper start the car and turn the wheel back and forth while you pour power steering fluid in the reservoir. Do not let your power steering fluid run completely out you can ruin your pump and or steering box. Continue to pour in new steering fluid until the fluid coming out of the hose thats in the bucket is clean fluid. Turn vehicle off reconect the hose to the reservoir and top off. With the lid off reservoir start the vehicle back up and turn wheel all the way back and forth many times(do not turn it to its furthest position where it bumps) continue to make sure the fluid level is always full. By turning the wheel back and forth you are bleeding the lines to get all the air out. Do that a few times, refill and put the cap back on. You just changed your power steering fluid. I f your vehicle is old you may want to get new rubber hoses for your power steering system. hoses degrade over time and eventually they start to flake off into your fluid which can damage parts. Always a good idea to replace hoses especially if they are soft.

A whirring sound, maybe power steering pump


HI. You power steering fluid level may be low at this point, a quick inspection of the fluid level, will be in order, if possible. Once you have verified that the fluid level is sufficient, move on to the actual power steering belt and unit. Make sure the belt is tight, and rotating the pulley. If the fluid level is low, be sure to fill to specifications.

Now, If the pulley and belt are rotating without a wobble, and the fluid level is sufficient, this will lead to a failed pump. The pump should be replaced in this case. Make sure you exhaust all inspections points mentioned before replacing the pump.

CHECK LIST

  1. Check the power steering pump hoses for leaks
  2. Check the power steering pump pulley for lose fit or wobble during rotation,
  3. Check the power steering reservoir for proper level(add if needed)
  4. Check the power steering drive belt for the proper tension.

Screeching noise


If your C/V joint is going bad it will make a nasty clicking sound and get louder the longer you leave it unattended.If this noise went away it could have been something stuck it the moving area of your wheel and just worked itself out.Keep an ear out for the noise to return,it it dosen't come back be happy.

Power Steering


Could be a hose or the gasket on top cover or the unit it's self could have an internal leak. Clean the hoses and continually check for fluid on a daily basis. Also look for cracks and signs of soft spots on the hoses especially near the connections, this should help you narrow down where the fluid is going.
