2003 Power Steering Recall
Posted 02 August 2010 - 05:15 AM
However after having this recall performed (it was a free service) I still have the occasional power steering pump whine or groan. From what I have read and some mechanics I have talked to, the design of the reservoir on this year (and probably similar years) has a filter that clogs up, not to mention if you keep the fluid level were it is indicated on the tank, it seems this will still allow it to cause noise. Having the tank filled up near the neck seems to cure the problem, but then it tends to burp some out at times, causing a mess.
I plan to actually pull the reservoir from the engine, thoroughly clean it, change all the fluid and reinstall to see if THAT will cure the issue. Will update here once its done, which may be awhile, as I plan to do several things at that time. If anyone else has certain solvable suggestions for this problem, by all means correct or add to what I have said here.

However, on that specific Caravan, after air gets trap in the P/S system, it could take you 2 weeks of driving to get all the air out, so don't be too concern if it still whine and moan for few days.

Anyway, I have yet to have time to properly yank it out and redo it, so have been dealing. Anyways. Thanks for the point out, though 2 weeks is not enough to fix my issue with this particular one. I just need a better setup, or replace everything or something.

Has anyone else had this done? I haven't taken mine in yet to have it done or done it myself yet. Going to look at it soon. Mine is just like a moan when you turn. like on street ans such. not at highway speeds
