What would make a 1998 ply breeze grunt and moan after having power steering hose replaced and no air in the line never made noise before hose was replaced?

You need to bleed the trapped air out of the system. Fill the reservoir, start and idle the engine. Turn the steering wheel back and forth stop to stop. Just touch the stop, do not hold it there or you may damage the power steering pump. Do this 10 to 15 times. Power steering fluid that is a tan color or has a beer head contains air. Turn the engine off and let it sit 15 minutes or longer. Top off the power steering fluid and start the engine again. Repeat until the fluid looks normal.

Check if there is adequate power steering fluid in the reservoir, also check for leaks.

Too many bangs under the steering wheel I reckon. Your turn signal/multi switch has quit working and must be replaced, take the two halfs of the steering column cover off and you should be able to get at it.

The power steering pump probably needs replaced. When it's cold the fluid is thicker so it is easier for the pump to have pressure in it when it gets hot the fluid gets thinner so the pump is having to work harder than in the cold

If your referring to having loose steering, then you need to tighten the adjustment set screw on the steering box under the hood. Don't tighten this to much, or it will lock up the gears. Typically a loose box needs to be replaced, in very few cases will tightening the set screw actually help.

It sounds like you are having rack and pinion problems. I have had two Grand Caravans and had to have them replaced on both. One was still under warranty. They are pretty common to have replaced, but it has to be done a certified technician. Good Luck.

Don't think there was a way to test it so I replaced the switch without having to remove the steering wheel. Two bolts held it on and Advance Auto had an after market switch for $79.00

most of them are on a recall from gm,, they did mine twice, then it was still there, all they do is pop the steering wheel off and grease down the tube. my noise came back , and after having the powersteering pump take a dump, and i replaced it , wah la , the noise is now gone,,, so i believe the noise has alway's been with the faulty power steering pumps and not the column area...

A steering system of the parallelogram type is normally fitted with a steering box assembly. You should check for excessive movement in the steering box itself. This can be done by having the vehicle on the ground, and feeling the "free play" in the steering wheel with the road wheels in the straight ahead position. While watching the wheels to see how much you can move the steering wheel, before the road wheels start to move. Check this amount of movement and report any excessive movement to your supervisor.

Most steering columns will unlock once you put the key in and turn the ignition on. If you are having trouble unlocking the steering, you should turn the steering wheel back and forth with the key in.

On a 1996 Plymouth Breeze, the crankshaft sensor can be found above the oil filter. It should be accessible without having to remove any other parts.

You can have your steering column tighten for approximately $75. The cost is dependent upon the hourly rate of the mechanic.

It is all in how easy it is to steer the car. The major difference in having power steering can be felt when parking the car or other maneuvers requiring maximum steering travel at very low speeds.

there is no power steering fluid, this is an electric assist power steering system, is you are having problems let the experts handle this go to the dealership.

A 1990 Nissan pickup truck has power steering. If the truck is displaying symptoms of not having power steering check the fluid levels and pump itself.

I am having our power steering pump replaced on our Highlander and it was to cost about $580. Since we had just purchased the vehicle but had over the 500 mile limit, we are only paying about $280. I understand that the pump is a difficult one to replace, hence the high cost.

I'm assuming you are talking about Chevy's Electronic Power Assist. If the steering goes "hard" then the power steering has gone out. This makes it very hard to turn the wheel if you are not moving or at the very least if you *are* moving you will notice a marked increase in the stiffness of the steering wheel. Having the dealership replace the module will help, although it seems the problem often times returns 6 months to a year later. I've had mine replaced 2 times in less than 2 years.

Depends on who you go to for supply to do it yourself is cheapest having someone else do it can vary
