how do i put a power steering pump on a 1987 dodge Dakota truck v6
Regular old power steering fluid.
It uses ATF+4 transmission fluid
Universal joints in the steering intermediate shaft are starting to seize. Get a new one at rouckauto.com.
it is on the pressure line off the power steering pump itself on the right side of the pump (if looking at the motor)
my dodge has the same problem, it is the power steering return hose being cracked or cut.
It transfers the crankshaft rotation to the alternator, water pump, ac compressor, and power steering pump.
It takes a special tool that you may be able to rent from a part store.
Power Steering fluid helps to keep the steering of a car running smoothly. A Dodge Caravan uses Mopar ATF +4 for power steering fluid.
That is a cooler for the power steering fluid.
