From your post, I have no idea what you put in what. Best thing you can do if what you put in there was the wrong fluid is to remove the return hose (the one without the pressure fittings, generally just a hose with clamps at the ends) and drain and re-fill it. If you put a lot in there, do it twice. If you needed to add fluid, chances are you have a leak somewhere that needs repair as well.
When re-filling after draining, bleed residual air out by turning the steering wheel all the way to the right, then all the way to the left a few times, making sure the level stays full. Past that, most times the noise will go away after driving a bit. If not, you likely have some pump damage.

Knock in stering when turning the wheels from side to side


Possible Tie rod ends, inner or outters cause that type of noise, loose steering mount bolts in the undercarge, binding steering shaft and or binding movement of the half shaft .

Ball joints as well can make that noise, need to isolate the problem. Turn the vehicle off with the key in the ON position have someone move the wheel slightly side to side while u have your hand at the outter tie rod ends, then u will want to raise the front end up , and wiggle the wheel side to side to see if the inner tie rod ends have play or making the noise,.

Good Luck

What symptoms does a Dodge Caravan have when it needs steering fluid repair of some type?


Hi sandav,

In response to your question, fluid can be low and more may need to be added. Any repair would be on the way it got low, fix the leak.

If it is low, steering at slower speeds will be difficult. An upper body workout. .

If you are having difficulties, post the symptoms you are experiencing. Might be able to help
