97 dodge dakota power steering only works above 1000 rpms

Usually with a new pump, Engine off and belt off, I take the return line loose, aim down into a container, put in new fluid, rotate the pulley with my finger, fluid comes out of return line, when fluid looks clear, I consider it good. Is that the way you do it?
I can't say that will work on every year--make--model, but, it seems to work for me.
If no fluid, have to check power steering lines and rack. Just my opinion.

I want to change the plastic headlight assembly, not the bulb. It has yellowed over the years.

You can buff out the old plasitc lenses. Harbor Freight sells a kit. Or you can do it yourself. Buy a sheet of 1000 and 2000 grit wet dry sandpaper. mask off the paint around the light. Wet sand with the 1000. When the results look good continue with the 2000. Finish with some car polish. Results should last for about 2 years. You can buy a polish just for head lights to touch and seal,use as needed, available at car parts stores.

Code p1345

p1345 ckp/cmp correlation. Basically the timing is can't time this motor the conventional way, you will need to find someone with a scan tool that reads camshaft position offset...the spec is 0 at 1200 prm.
P0441 EVAP emission canister purge is contolled by a valve which allows engine vacuum to pull stored fuel vapors from fuel tank into the engine to be burned, rather than be vented to atmosphere. A vacuum switch is used to detect when flow exists. If the PCM commands purge and sees that the switch is closed (indicating no detected purge flow) P0441 is set.
P1406 code, try this before you pay a shop to fix it. Remove your EGR valve and soak it in about an inch of good carbon cleaner. Dont submerge the whole thing, just the bottom part where the valve seats. Leave it overnight and clean it really good the next day with a pick and a brush. (a small screwdriver and an old toothbrush work just fine.)
Push open the valve and carfully clean any carbon built up around the valve and seat. The valve should move freely and NOT stick in the closed position. When the valve is dry, reinstall the EGR valve and clear the codes. P1406 EGR Pintle Postion Circuit

Thank you for using Fixya, you can work on the P0441 and P1406. The P1345, your going to need a scanner to set the timing.
The ignition timing cannot be adjusted. The distributor may need adjusting to prevent crossfire. To insure proper alignment of the distributor, perform the following:

With the ignition OFF, install a scan tool to the DLC.
Start the engine and bring to normal operating temperature. IMPORTANT: Cam ****** Offset reading will not be accurate below 1000 RPM.
Increase engine speed to 1000 RPM.
Monitor the Cam ****** Offset.
If the Cam ****** indicates a value of 0°+/-2°, the distributor is properly adjusted.
If the Cam ****** does not indicate 0°+/-2°, the distributor must be adjusted.

With the engine OFF, slightly loosen the distributor hold down bolt. IMPORTANT: Cam ****** Offset reading will not be accurate below 1000 RPM.
Start the engine and raise engine speed to 1000 RPM.
Using a scan tool monitor Cam ****** Offset.
Rotate the distributor as follows:
4.1. To compensate for a negative reading, rotate the distributor in the counterclockwise direction.
4.2. To compensate for a positive reading, rotate the distributor in the clockwise direction.

Repeat step 4 until 0°+/-2°, is obtained.
Turn the ignition OFF.
Tighten the distributor hold-down bolt to 3 Nm (25 lb. ft.).
Start the engine, raise engine speed to 1000 RPM and recheck Camshaft ****** Offset.

2003 intrpid misfiring under 1000 RPM 2,4,6 cylinders only. Over 1000 RPM works fine

Your question is? Sounds as though that info came from a code scanner.? We can not repair a vehicle over the internet by guessing and you throwing parts at it. Someone will need to get involved with a professional scanner and lots of experience. You may have ignition issues ,but just during cranking? Get quality professional help. It pains me to say that,but I don't have the vehicle.

2001 ford focus needs new much would it cost??????

It is according to where you get it worked on, weather you would want a rebuilt,new or used engine and weather your "core" (bad engine) is acceptable if needed. Most garages have shop rates from $25 to $50 per hour. I can give you a rough estimate for that type of average shop bills for similar repairs. I would say a good used eng. should run $700 to $1000 (check the junk yards near you). The garages should take probably between 12 and 18 hours to do the work (I haven't checked the book time on that model). IThey will surely need most all fluids,misc seals and gaskets. Adding $150 to $200. I would expect a shop bill of around $800 to mabe $1000 in addition to the cost of the engine.

How much to change a gearbox for ford focus made in 2001

I am assuming you are referring to the transmission. The average for an independent shop is $750-$1000, the dealership will want $1000-$1500. Take time to shop around. There are many good independents out there who appreciate and need the work and who are willing to make good deals to get the job.
