Question about 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager

1 Answer

I have a slow power steering fluid leak and my wife took the car into a shop that is notorious for trying to fix more than the problem you want them to solve. I want a base line on if the whole power steering system needs to be replaced, how much will that cost and if it is only a hose how much should that cost? Also what is a good hourly rate for mechanical labor these days? $80 an hour is what this shop charges which I feel is too high. Any info is appreciated. Thanks, Warren

Steering goes from easier to stiff and back to easy when going from highway speed to off ramp. This hard steering can last from 15 seconds to 1 minute, any ideas?


The hassle has to be with the power steering pump..Check to make sure that the fluid level is up to spec and there are no leaks in the hoses.. If all looks good then the pump has an intermittent condition responsible for issue. U might want to wait till it goes completely or replace it.

Fortunately when a car is in motion the absence of of the assist is no big deal/ it helps with parking and other slow maneuvering.

Why is power steering fluid spewing out of the cap after replacing bad leaking power steering pump


You have Air in the Power steering System and it needs to be bleed out, And to do this if you Jack the two front wheels off the ground and Let them Hang free so there is No Load on the steering at all. please put some type of stands under the car, You will need more power steering fluid but before you add this you need to start your Car and turn the steering Wheel Slow from left to Right a few times, You will hear a wearing Notice come from the pump and you will see more fluid come out of the pump as well, that is the air trying to bleed its self out. The fluid coming out will be air rated lots of bubbles in it, Now that you have done this the Noise from the pump should start to go quite at this Point you can start to Add the New power steering fluid slow to the reservoir and keep turning the steering wheel from left to right slow (Never Fast but slow ) Have a lot of rags to clean the Mess. Hope this helps you. :)

Have you checked the fluid level? Have you looked to see where it is leaking if the level is low? Have you contacted the shop that did the work?

My 01 Olds Alero was leaking power steering fluid really bad, changed power steering pump, then realized my rack pinion was leaking also, changed it. I still have no power assist in steering. I've


alot of the time bleeding the system is required when that much fluid has been lost, you have air trapped in the lines. to do this i jack the front end of the car up enough the tires are not touching the ground, remove the p/s cap and turn your wheels all the way to the left and back to the right and eventually pressure will come back check your fluid level every ten turns or so, your level will go down due to the air being purged out. dont do it to fast but not too slow just take your time the last truck i did this too it took me a total of 30 times left and right.. GOOD LUCK!

My power steering only works when im moving fast. when i go slow its hard to turn the wheel


Usually the power steering only works at slow speeds. Either the pump is bad, low on power steering fluid or air is in the fluid, its foaming and needs to be bled.
Check fluid level and condition and for leaks on the pump and resovoir.Make sure the belt is not worn. If all of this is a-ok you now have to take it to a repair shop because you need special equiptment to check the pump and rack for the correct pressures. Preferably use an ASE certified repair facility.

2006 Town and Country: Loud Whinning noise when cold and a slow Power steering fluid leak.


the noise may be because your power steering fluid level is low when cold, as the fluid warms up it expands enough to stop the whine, you should have the leak checked by your favorite mechanic shop

Power steering leak making loud buzzing sound more loud when turning


The power steering leak is creating bubbles in your power steering pump which gets strained more when turning, which causes it to be louder when turning. If you know where your leak is, then fix that, then try to bleed your ps system by filling up with the cap off the resevoir and turning the steering wheel max left to max left with trans fluid. if the noise is still there then your ps pump needs to be replaced along with the ps vsv located on the side of the pump.

Power steering fluid is leaking from the top


I almost got this. Does the fluid level go down ever few days with no leaking hoses,no leaking cooler if you have one and nothing coming out of the steering rack boots. It has to go somewhere. if it just comes out the cap the pump is not pulling it and sending it to the rack so you should not have much in the way of power steering. Did you put a new belt on wrong if posible and turn the pump backwards. Only other possibility is a flow blockage. Pull the return line,disable the ignition and crank engine. You should eventually pump fluid completely through the system and out the return line like it was headed back to the resevoir.
