The steering pump has a valve under the car and a piston like thing to move the steering arm back and forth, both can go bad, usually, they leak though, so I don't know why you haven't had that problem. I would get under there just for a visual insp to see if anything is bent, broke, hanging off, whatever, before I go trying to figure it out. If the pump is good, and it has fluid, then you have something wrong with the valve or the piston, or the wheels themselves have frozen up. Is the belt ok? Does it slip? Check it out, Hope this helps.

My liberty jeep sports AC cools for something and stops. How do I unscrew the tyre nuts when changing tyres as the nut are very tightly secured. how do I repair the power steering oil leakage.

AC may be low on freon R134a if you are low it can take your A/C pump out dont run it low.
you need to use a lug nut socket and to take it off you go couterclock wize to put it on you go clockwizes
you can try power steering stop leak if that dose not work put a new power steering pump on.

2002 jeep liberty, engine doesnt want to stay running,must give throttle,hard start. heavy misfire when running, codes P0202 and P1282. thinking its a pcm issue?

check security of the wiring for fuel injector for cylinder #2. Check resistance of this injector and compare the reading to another injector. replace if needed

There may be an issue with your fuel pump relay or its wiring. however service injector first to see if trouble code does not return

Power steering 2002 Jeep Liberty

Remove the clamped on hose on the pump (not the one with the pressure fitting), drain into a pan below the vehicle. Replace hose and refill, run and turn steering wheel all the way in both directions (to purge air in system). Do not permit system to run low so add fluid after each time wheel is turned, as needed You cannot remove all the fluid so it is good to repeat this procedure twice. Use a good quality fluid. You don't need much, (usually a quart or less) so price should not be an issue. After your'e finished, drive and re-check level and check for leaks if any.

Squeels at start for first two seconds

The squeeling could be from a worn belt or if oil drips on belt overnight. Replace the belt first to see if that fixes it.Good luck.
