    Actually have same issue with 2001 Durango. Did complete front brake job and happened to check power steering fluid level while there due to a small leak from end of right side boot. No probelm with steering being "jerky" until I added the fluid to the proper level. Now it has an intermittent ****, both left and right. Fluid in reservior also has a burnt smell to it. I'm wondering if it ran too low on fluid and ruined the pump? Maybe just air in it due to low fluid level? How do I bleed the system to rule that out?

Sound like your powersteering pump or steering rack and pinion
could be bad.i would say it is your rack and pinion because if your pump was bad your steering would be real hard to turn instead of being jerky.jerking is usally the sign of a bad rack

The vehicle will suddenly jerk to the left at acceleration, and when you lift your foot from the accelerator it tugs to the right. Probable cause?


could be a differential problem, or half shaft broken where power is only going ot one wheel. when the car accelerates the wheel with power can cause the vehicle to jerk. could also be a wheel problem. ensure the tyres are inflated correctly. is the steering wheel straight or turned to one side when driving in a straight line. if turned there may be damage to the steering system. did the symptom start after another person has driven the vehicle? or after an accident or driving into a curb or off road? all these may be factors to the problem. if not the case try rotating the wheels front left to rear right and front right to rear left to see if the problem disapears. if persists seek professional to test drive the vehicle and give an appraisal to the cause.

I hope this was helpful.

Why does my vehicle make a jerking motion and a squealing sound when I turn the steering wheel all the way to the right or to the left?


It sounds as though the CV joint(s) on the steering--a sort of universal joint--may be failing. I really would not chance it further without professional advice.

Why my key want turn for 300 chrysler 300


If the key won\'t turn it suggests the steering wheel is pressing hard on the stop that locks it. Try twisting the steering wheel left and right while attempting to turn the key. That happened to me once when I parked on a hill and turned the wheels so it would bump the curb and not roll away. I had to jerk the steering wheel pretty hard before it let go. If that doesn\'t fix it you may have a real problem inside the switch where something came loose and is blocking the switch from turning. I sure hope jerking the wheel with fix this for you.

Power steering is making a whining noise and jerking but has plenty of fluid


First make sure it is actually the pump and not the drive belt to the pump. If that checks out ok, then remove the P/S fill cap and turn the steering wheel fully left and fully right 10 times. This will remove any trapped air from the system. If that does no good then purchase a can of Seafoam Trans-Tune and add 2 ounces to the reservoir. If that still does not solve your whining & jerking problem after about 25 miles of driving, then the pump will have to be replaced.

1999 lhs steering jerks to the left


now is is pulling while you are driving also... like if you remove your hands from the wheel is it pulling left? If so you need a front end alinment... now if it only jerks when you are turning left it could be your steering stablizer bar or your left CV joint because if it seriously damaged it will cause you to steer hard and it could also break in half and you will loose your wheel...
