Not sure if this is it or not, but on my 97 with the hydraulic assist, there was a sensor that went around the steering arm just before it went through thr firewall (inside). This tells the hydraulics how much assistance to give. Follow the steering arm right up to where it goes through the firewall and pull back the carpet. The sensor will be located here with an electrical pigtail connected to it. When I changed mine, I pulled the steering arm out from under the hood, swapped the sensor out from the inside and put the steering arm back in. Definately takes 2 people.

How do you fix a 1990 dodge ram van steering?

Depends what you mean by fix? What is the problem? Is there a lot of "looseness" in the steering? Does the vehicle wander and follow road ruts? Is there too much steering gearbox freeplay? You have to be more specific. Anyone of the steering linkage ball joints can be worn out. The steering gearbox can be adjusted to have minimum free play. The shaft connecting the steering gearbox to the steer wheel can have worn spleens. It could be anything. Suggest you check the steering gear box cover bolts for tightness, and then adjust the excess freeplay out of the gearbox. If the doesn't help, then have someone shake the steering wheel left and right while you look at the steering linkages under the front end. The idler arms seem to wear out first, followed by the ball joints. If they appear tight, then there isn't much more you can check. The connection between the steering gear box and the steering column are no longer made. If that's worn, you'll just have to live with it or have a 4WD shop do a custom installation of some type of replacement.

Well, have you actually done any sort of diagnosis? If there's no fluid leak visible, and there's fluid in the reservoir, then you have either a faulty power steering pump or gearbox. So then you disconnect the line from the pump to the gearbox and run a pressure test on it.. if that checks out, then it's probably your gearbox.
