  1. Gen 3 Dodge Ram
    Trying to replace my power steering pump. Bought pump and pulley separately. When I went to install the main engine pulley and pump pulley hit. Checked pump with store to see if there is an issue with miss packaging. All pumps the same. Can anyone tell me what diameter pulley is needed? Not...

    My 2013 Ram (70k miles) power steering went out while I was pulling into a parking space. Heard a clunk, couldn't steer and "Service Power Steering" warning. Turning the switch off and on did not fix the problem. I left the vehicle in the parking space with the steering wheel and tires locked...
  3. ASK A DODGE RAM TECH!
    This problem has been going on for 15 months and is not repeatable on demand when I go to the dealer. When it first happened it seemed like the tires were rubbing on something when I turned the steering wheel all the way in one direction when backing up to park. I took it to the dealer under...

    Got stuck in snow, beat the hell out of the truck and got it out. Had to go left and right like it’s no one’s business. Heard a whining, lost power steering and noticed a pile of pink in the snow. Anyone know how to diagnose the source? It leaked fairly fast. From first sign within minutes it’s...

    I had a shop put 3" leveling kit and my 13 1500 4x4. I also bought some 20" rims and tires to replace my 18". I bought them used from a buddy but they still have alot of life in the tires. I got it aligned and a couple months later a started to get a really bad squeak in the front end. I got...

    I have an 06 Ram 2500 with the Hemi and g56 transmission. My power steering pump is on its way out and Im looking to do the ZF pump upgrade and need some help!

    (4 wd also) I know there are threads on this and I’ve read them. Just looking for more help. So we’re at about 90k miles. And intermittently noticed truck hard to turn at low speeds. Now consistent overall. The wheel will come back awkwardly and inconsistently through or after turn. Both...
  8. 4TH Generation Dodge Ram – 2009 to 2018
    I was driving about 35mph when the electronic power steering went out and locked on me. There was no prior warning to it locking on me and jerked the wheel straight. I was thankfully in a residential area and not on the highway yet. I saw that this was a recall issue with the 2015-2016 models...
  9. 2014 Dodge Ram Forum
    So here's my problem. When I go over bumps you can hear a knocking noise. SO I threw the truck up on some stands and started to give things a look. If you cycle the steering by pushing on the driver's side wheel there is no problem. But when you do it from the passenger side you can see the...
  10. 4.7L PowerTech V8 Specific Topics
    I have a 4WD 2007 Ram 1500 SLT V8 4.7 liter truck. I noticed last night that my rack is covered in oil of some kind right along with my inner tie rod boots. Naturally, I assumed that my rack was leaking power steering fluid. You can also assume that if its power steering fluid my power...

  12. 2014 Dodge Ram Forum
    I have a 2014 RAM 1500 CC Sport... I've noticed that if I turn my steering wheel fully left or right I'll hear a grinding sound - I'm assuming it's the electric power steering. It's especially noticeable when I'm in reverse. It reminds me of the screeching noise a hydraulic power steering...
  13. Suspension
    Lost power steering the other day in my 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 HD 4X4 with a 5.7 Hemi. Found a nick in a pressure hose, but refilled pump with fluid to confirm before replacing. Not it. Picture is of what I assume is the power steering gearbox presenting a faulty pitman shaft seal? Although a...

    I have an 07 megacab hemi and after some offroad adventures noticed the wheel was getting hard to turn. I replaced the power steering pump which seemed to remedy the problem a little bit, but just 2 days later it was back. Now if I am stopped at idle i cannot turn the wheel at all. I have...
