well over the past few days i've noticed a noise ocasionally comming from my power steering pump once in a while. tonight i was out to get some grocery's when all of a sudden i get this growl :baaa: from the pump, i shut the car off went in and when i came back out i noticed that if i hold the car at 1500 rpm and turn the wheel back and forth i get a sound kinda like if you run the pump dry. :( so now i kinda pissed at the bad pump i'm gonna take the car in towmorow i was just wondering if anyone else has had any problems??

Bro this happend to my 94 intrepid last week i think.

I was like the motor was runing dry, SO i went and checked the fluid i wasnt that full. So i added some fluid to it, and it stopped.

So first try that, Then after one day check if it is still making that sound.

Because mine stopped making that noise.

GOOD LUCK:cool:

It could be just air in the lines... I had that happen to my 98 Trep 2 years ago.. Now I get the same noise so I think I have the same problems.... Make sure they purge the lines and then top off the fluid first... before they try to tell you you need a new power steering pump...

I had to do mine 2 weeks before I sold my 98. The old pump was very had to turn after being removed. The new one turned very easy. The Tech said they do alot of them.

What a crappy car DM has made - Is there ANYTHING that is not a problem on this car.
I had mine replaced ($ 540 Part and labour) on 98Trep.
...DISGUSTING.

I have had my fair share of problems with my Intrepid, but I still don't think it is "crappy".

Not crappy, just unreliable and expensive to maintain with many poorly designed parts that fail often.

My 2.7 98 is doing the same. For 1 day the pump actually went out. You couldn't turn the thing to save your life. Fluid was up but the pump just wasn't circulating. Next day, I turn a corner expecting to turn hard, it made a grind like it was low and I almost went into a ditch. It has worked ever since.
