Sounds like rack is clogged or one of hose is clogged or pinched. Next time you put fluid in it try bleeding it. It's easy, top up fluid then turn wheels all the way to stops on right then back to left stops. Do it a couple of times, but be careful - do NOT hold at stops for more than 5 secs.

Power Steering Noise Grand Caravan & Town & Country


2001-2007 Models Do you hear your power steering wining. Been to the dealer saying "Its the pump going bad"......"System needs to be flushed, fluid is dirty" & my favroite "Your rack is bad". Folks 90% of the problems is the power steering reservoir filter. To change this filter you have to change the reservoir. The reservoir has 2 hoses attached to it, one small(return line), one large(exit/feed line). When the fluid returns to the reservoir through the small line into the reservoir & through the filter, back into the system. Filters get cloged. To change you will need. One NEW Reservoir $28 Chrysler Part # 4743012AA , buy this first looking at it explains alot. 2qts ATF 4 $11 to change the fluid in the system. Socket set with 6mm to 10mm & 4in extension, 1 channel lock to remove clamps on lines, flat head screwdriver. Old towels or rags, 1 turkey baster $1, 1 paint nipple or small ballon to fit over the small return line opening on the new reservoir(SEE PART #2!!!), 1 old clear washer fliud jug. To remove the reservoir sitting right on top to the drivers side. You will need a 2nd person for PART #2. Run car 10 min. to warm up the fluid & get it pumping through the system. Shut car off, put towels around the reservoir. Remove cap throw away. Using the turkey baster remove as much of the fluid as you can. Remove & slide the clamps back out of the way 6in. Remove lines fluid will come out of the lines. Remove the 2 bolts from the mounting bracket( DO NOT LOSE). Snap or cut the clip holding the 2 cable on the front of the reservoir. Looking at the new reservoir see the slot on the bottom, theres a 10mm bolt underneath. Use 10mm & extension, loosen the bolt only. Remove reservoir. When putting new one on DON"T PUT the RETURN LINE ON. Part #2 New reservoir in place???? Everything tight ,but not over tightened?? Remove some of the towels except under the return line area. Using the paint nipple place over the return line opening on the reservoir, this is important that the system retains presure. Smash the old washer fluid jub to place into the engine compartment up near the reservoir, DON'T LET TOUCH THE EXHAUST. Place the return line in the jug. Fill the reservoir to the top, but not into the neck. Place cap on reservoir. With a 2nd person starting the car for 3 or 4 seconds. Window or door open so they can hear you say "shut it off". Watch the fluid level drop in the reservoir, DON"T LET IT RUN EMPTY!!!! Holding the jug when doing this the old fluid will pump out of the system into the jug, you will be able to see this with the clear jug.. Repeat untill 1qt of fluid has been added to the reservoir & pumped through the system. Remove jug from car, empty the fluid into the empty AFT 4 bottle. Put jug back into place, repeat the Fill/Start/Shut off. Is the fluid running clean REAL RED into the jug, if not repeat till it runs RED. Remove paint nipple place line on quickly. Put clamp into place. Fill the reservoir to the top fill line. Remove all towels. Start the van, check the fluid level.Fill if needed. To bleed the system of any air that might have gotten in, with the car running turn the wheel all the way to one side & then the other without hitting the stops do this about 10 times. Check for leaks. Check fluid level. Your done clean up mess. Hope all your noise has gone away..... 2003 Grand Caravan ES by Chris

I have a ford escort all 3 K 1995, I need to add some liquid in the in the assisted direction reservoir in the engine but where is that reservoir? thanks for helping


assisted direction reservoir? hmm,,. that's an interesting name... It sounds like you may mean the power steering pump? - that would be located at the front of the engine, typically belt driven. Some vehicles may have the reservoir located on the wheel well or firewall, either way, it should have ayellow cap and say power steering fluid only on it - if in fact my assumption is correct with the name.
best regards

Best said if I steal the words from another Pontiac Grand Prix owner..."For the love of God and everything holy, where do I put in power steering fluid?" I 've been told by the dealer that it...


You are going to need a really long funnel for this. The reservoir is below the alternator near the firewall. Probably need a flashlight to find it.

Where do i put my power stearing fluid in my 1998 ford escort


2b9a938.gif

Position the vehicle on level ground. Run the engine until the fluid is at normal operating temperature. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and right several times. Position the wheels in the straight ahead position, then shut off the engine. Check the level in the reservoir; it should be at the FULL mark. If fluid is required, remove the cap and add fluid until it reaches the FULL mark.

I can't find where to pour the power steering fluid


Locate the power steering pump with its drive belt. Follow the hoses to the reservoir to fill.

The brake reservoir fluid will be clear to slightly brown. Do not confuse the two.

Power steering rack leaking


If it's coming from the rack, check the rubber boots from the rack to the inner tie rods, and if they are soaked with fluid, you will need a new rack, or keep adding fluid to the pump as needed.
Hope this helps!
