1995 Jeep Power steering

I'm having problems with my jeeps power steering. It has fluid in it, but it sounds terrible when I'm turning and it is not turning as easily as it should be. We've had the jeep for a while, then it sat in the garage and last summer I fixed it up some to start driving it again. At first the steering sounded bad, but it slowly got better. But started back in January or so it started back sounding terrible and the steering became harder to control. Any suggestions? =)

Power steeringts been making like wining noise for the past couple of weeks but 2 days it started to make like a knocking sound


First check the fluid level.Add fluid if needed.If the sound goes away you have to look for a fluid leak.If the level is ok the pump needs replacing or to be rebuilt.The power steering hoses do have a problem with leaking with vehicles around this age.All the Jeep models do.For a shop it is not a big job to r&r a pump.Hope this helps

When turning my 1995 jeep grand cherokee orvis the steering wheel has a wineing noise turning it from right to left. Also there is a wineing noise by the belts behind the radiator. I have a leak in the...


This is most likely the power steering pump that you hear. Check the fluid level to be sure it is full. If the fluid is full then the pump is going out. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I have prablems i my power steering


My power steering pressure hose has a visible hole in it and squirts fluid when turning the wheel. How do I replace the pressure hose assembly? Is it O.K. to drive, if I top off the power steering fluid tank, and drive it about 10 miles to Autozone while it's still leaking?

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee squeaking and power steering


It very well could be the pawer steering pump. But to isolate the squeking sound, take that can of wd-40 and find the idler pully and tensior pully. Spray the bearing area of both pulleys. If your bearing in those pulleys are going bad then it will make that noise. If the wd-40 quits the noise at one of those tow pulleys then you know which one to replace. If its does not, then start looking to replace the powersteering pump. I take it you have checked the power steering fluid levels and they are ok?? Also, you stated that the noise started after you bought the alternator, then try a new alternator. It might of just been a faulty alternator. Happens all the time. One last inexpensive tip is replacing all belts with new. Belts get glazed over and dirty and cause noise too. One last question. Did you make sure the belts were tight enough? Just a little variance in the belt tension can make the difference.

Problem with steering wheel


Stay in the Car! LOL you have a problem with your power steering system. 1st Check your fluid level. 2nd check the belt. If you discover everything is ok, replace the power steering pump. That should fix it, however, if you still experience a problem, it will be in your rack and pinion. If you replace the rack and pinion you would want to change the pump anyway so no harm done. Good luck

2004 Jeep Liberty Power Steering Quit Working


I would check for leaks. After the car sits overnight look undernieth the cor on the drivers side. You are most likely going to see a tiny puddle of very thin oil. Check the tubing connections at the pump (mounted to the engine on the drivers side) and the front axel. Be certain to use Mopar power steering fluid when topping off. You may also need to get any air out of the system. Jack up the car so that both wheels are off the ground. With the engine turned off, turn the wheels to left and right lock positions a couple times. Lower the car, top off the fluid if necessary & give it a drive. Hope that works for ya.

I have a jeep grand cherokee and the power steering keeps going stiff is it the power steering pump or steering box


If it only goes stiff part of the time, the box is probably OK.

Before considering major surgery:
  • check the power steering fluid level.
  • condition of the fluid
  • condition and tension on the belts
  • check for low or uneven tire pressure
  • check steering linkages for damage (did someone borrow the car recently?)
If none of these check out, then consider replacing the pump.
