If the steering wheel was moved without the engine being on, this allows a small bit of air to get into the system. You can bleed the system which can get messy, or you can just drive it for a few days and soon enough you won't see the bubbles anymore. Driving it will actually work the air out on it's own.

96 neon overheating


Do some simple checks. First check the coolant level while the car is cool and off. With the car still off remove the radiator cap. Then start the car up. The antifreeze should not bubble or over flow with in 3 minutes of idling. If that's ok put the cap back on securely, Then see if the electrical fans turn on when it gets just above operating temp. Usually if you turn on the ac that will let you know if they are working. If all of these check are good. Then replace the thermostat. If the fluid bubbles out with the cap removed when it's cold and running. It's usually a bad cylinder head gasket or a cracked cylinder head. If the fans do not ingage check the fan relay and electrical wiring.

My power steering fluid in my dodge neon is green???


Well I am a master Certified Chrysler tech and Chrysler has been using a Clear to yellowish Power steering fluid for many years now. In most vehilces power steering fluid is pretty much standard automatic transmission fluid (thus the red color) The only fluid that that car came with that was green was the antifreeze. There may case where someone has service the power steering system and replaced the factory fluid with an aftermarket fluid which is green tinted in color.. Cant say that working 17 years at a 9 franchise dealership that I have ever seen green power steering fluid, but anything is possibile I guess, Reguardless that is not whats causing the car to not start. I would venture to say that since the power steering resivor and the radiator cap are a few inces from each other that your dad has accidently took off the wrong cap. The clicking when starting is either a weak battery (most likely) or a corroded cable situation at the battery.(possibile) or a defective starter (rare) Try jumping it with jumper cables... Then get the battery and charging sytem checked..
Hope this helps
Sincerely
Roger

I need to add power steering fluid to my 2000 dodge neon. What kind do i need to buy?


Your owner's manual lists the correct fluid. Sometimes it is listed on the P/S fill cap. If you remove all the fluid then use ATF+4 fluid. If you are only topping it off then use ATF+3. This is the same fluid that you use in the Automatic Transmission of your Neon.

Power steering fluid is leaking and makes really weird sounds


Issue is not likely to be the power steering pump. The sounds are made when there is low fluid in the pump/system. Cheapest check is to make sure that the feed and return lines at the pinion housing are firmly attached. You could also have a leaking seals in the rack and pinion assembly. If you see bubbles in the power steering fluid and there is pressure in the power steering system, this is a strong indicator that the issue is seals and not the pump itself. In Regina, Canada, Canadian Tire charges $45 for an inspection. To replace the power steering pump is about $300, and just the hoses is about $145. Obviously the $45 inspection is your best bet.

Power steering fluid is leaking from the cap which puts it all over the outside of the reservoir and that side of the engine compartment. Have to refill every other day. How do I fix it or do I need a...


did you overfill the fluid resovior? the cap is vented and provides no seal, so it the tank is overfilled it will bubble out the cap, if the tank is not overfilled you have a defective steering rack that is pulling in air through a defective seal and causing the fluid to foam and bubble out the cap vent.

2003 Dodge Neon Code P0551 and Rough Idle


I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM WITH MY 2002 DODGE NEON. THE FIX WAS TO REPLACE THE POWER STEERING PRESSURE SENSOR SWITCH. IF YOU DO IT YOURSELF IT WILL PROBABLY COST ABOUT $50 OR $60 INCLUDING THE HAYNES MANUAL TELLING YOU HOW TO DO IT. I BELIEVE THE SWITCH COST ME ABOUT $30 OR $35 FROM A DODGE DEALER. IT IS PRETTY SIMPLE. TAKE OFF THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTION GOING TO THE SWITCH AND THEN TAKE OUT THE SWITCH ITSELF WITH A PROPER SIZED WRENCH. THE SWITCH IS THREADED INTO A CONNECTION ATTACHED TO METAL HOSES THAT HAVE POWER STEERING FLUID IN THEM. HAVE THE NEW SWITCH READY TO PUT IN AFTER THE OLD ONE COMES OUT,FOR POWER STEERING FLUID WILL FLOW OUT OF THE CONNECTION. PUT THREAD TAPE ON THE THREADS OF THE NEW CONNECTION. THIS WIIL HELP TO SEAL THE SWITSH FROM LEAKS. TORQUE TO SPECS AND REINSTALL THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTION. CLEAR THE CODE AND SEE IF IT COMES BACK. MINE DID NOT. OH YES, IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE SOME POWER STEERING FLUID TO TOP OFF ANY THAT LEAKS OUT DURING THIS PROCESS.
GOOD LUCK!

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.

Spark Plugs


The oil on the spark plug usually comes from the valve cover seal or the spark plug tube. The valve cover seals to the tube and the tube seals to the head. The tube is usually a tight fit in to the head with a little sealant. The tubes can be purchased at the chrysler dealer or possibly at a local parts store. As for the red fluid,it is automatic transmission fliud . It is used in the manual transmission as well as the power steering system. You could have an axle seal leak, transmission shifter seal leak, power steering seal leak, depending on which side of the vehicle is wet.
