Check the power steering fluid level. What you describe could be the noise made when fluid level is low. It's not good for the pump, so if that's the problem, fill to proper level, check for leaks, as it shouldn't be losing fluid. countrycurt0

hi, there is a common problem with most all gm vehicles that causes this noise, the steering intermediate shaft is lubricated from the factory but does not contain any type of seal to keep the grease from escaping away from the metal it slides on. the grease compresses and the steering shaft knocks due to loose tolerance. the shaft itself is bolted from the base of the steering column shaft to the gearbox, or rack and pinion most likely in your case. two things you can do, replace the shaft or have it replaced with the updated part with better grease sealing ability. or you can remove the shaft, go down to your local gm dealer, and purchase a steering shaft grease kit, either ask them to grease it for you, or follow the instructions in the kit. it requires a bit of know how to complete. then you can re-install the original shaft. when most of the gm vehicles come into my bay, i generally replace the shaft becuse i can warranty the new part. but it's up to you.

Need to replace a power steering pully on a 2000 Town and Country

Go to local parts store and rent the power steering puller / installer. This is the only way to do it. Otherwise you will damage the seals and bearings in the pump if you hit it with a hammer or press with a regular press.

Easy steering to left, difficult steering to right

he sounds right on that one..sounds like bad seal in the steering box or bad valve.--as far as replacing the power steering pump---i wouldnt do that unless its growling right now. the lines will be disconnected from the steering box, now is a great time to flush the power steering pump. but yes, i think he is on the right track with the steering box being bad

Jeep Grand Cherokee 2004 front end clunking

It would be kind of hard to explain, but you may want to check your wheel bearings. Sounds like your wheel is binding. If you jack the front up, grab your tire, and shake. Sort of like you are trying to turn the wheel your self with out the steering wheel. Then do the same up and down. If you have a lot of play, then your wheel bearing is shot. And with a 4WD, you have to replace it because its sealed, where as on a 2WD, you can tighten them. For the pitman arm, and the gear box, you may have to get a haynes manual to find. But the gear box will be the box that your steering shaft goes into and connects to the tierods. Not too hard to find.
