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?

Unless the tow truck operator hooked up to the wrong thing the tow will have nothing to do with it.

I have never heard of any connection to the transmission and power steering, so the chances of the transmission repair causing the p/s failure is pretty low.

Is the repair shop reputible? I would recommend a second opinion from another shop.

How do I know if the power stering pump is bad or if it is the high pressure hose in a 2000 durango


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.

Hard steering very hard and replced the power steering pump today


check the steering joint in the steering shaft (the shaft from steering wheel to steering rack.) the joint may be binding. the rack could be bad. also you could have an issue with a ball joint.

Surpentine belt.


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
