I would remove the power steering cap, and look inside of the pump, and take the end of a screwdriver, and dip it into the pump, and bring it out and look at the color of the fluid, if it is clear, then it has power steering fluid, if it has a reddish looking color, then it is atf + 4 fluid, also , you can look into the owners manual of your vehicle, if you have the manual.

How do i change a 2000 dodge dakota power steering pump?

First--- why are you considering changing it?

How do you know the pump is the problem,
within the power steering system?

I think you when you look at it, you will see
on that vehicle, that you can get at it fairly
easily & unbolt it.
