Question about 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan
The squealing can come from a couple of things. One is the lack of fluid in the reservoir and 2 would be a loose belt. The pump demands a lot of power from the engine through the belt when turning, that is why it squeals, you have to get it snugged up, real tight, some belts will squeal no matter what you do, they have belt dressings and other goodies for squealers, sometimes getting them so tight they snap doesn't help. A new belt may be in order, Is it a serpentine belt? Try tightening it up first. there is a square hole on the power steering pump for a 1/2 drive breaker bar,( or there should be) loosen the lock nut, torque over the whole unit with the bar and tighten up the nut before letting go. This should help. Check it out.
