2000 Dodge Durango bad steering pully cable and pump
Hi, I had my transmission replaced and now the steering was hard to turn after picking it up from shop, so I took the Durango back to the mechanic and he says the power steering pump and cable is bad. My question is did the towing or transmission repair had any thing to do with this problem?

If is no leak, then maybe you need to bleed the power steering pump. jack the vehicle from the front , and leave the tires free from floor.Take off the steering pump cap, pull the steering wheel all the way to one side and hold for few seconds, let the system to bleed air , then pull all the way to the other side and do the same. somone should be looking the pump to see if air bubles are coming out, repeat as nessesary, If after this proceidure power steering still hard and noisy, replace the pump.
Note: Safety first. Use stand jacks and other security tools to prevent accidents.
if you have to spay the belt to get it to stop then the belt is most likly streched or bad. take the belt off and turn all the free spinng pullys alt,power steering,a/c,ect if all spin good with no horible sounds then replace the belt , if any turn hard then this is what the problem is.but im betting it's the belt
i had the same problem in a dodge ram pick up. ended up being the coil. when the coil got hot my truck would die or not start again until the engine had cooled down. replaced the coil, and whalaaaaah. no more trouble. good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
depends on which v8 you have....the 4.7 the routing is as follows it goes under the waterpump pully over the alternator down and around the power steering pumpto the crank...it goes under the bottom of the crank to the idler pully.the flat side of the belt goes ver the idler then around the automatic tensioner to the ac compressor.
on the 5.2 and 5.9 it routes starting at the idler pully the flat side goes undr the idler the up to the ac compressor around the compressor and down to the power steering pump ... around power stering pump to waterpump where the flat side is against waterpump pully around water pump down and around crank up it automatic tensioner....around tensioner and up and over alternator
po 551 is a bad power steering sensor are you sure it is the trans leaking and not the power steering po 700 is the output speed sensor on the trans either one of them is not hard to change you can do it!!!!!
