Can you identify this steering noise?

Asked by Oct 29, 2013 at 04:06 PM about the 2008 Chrysler Town & Country Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2008 Town and Country occasionally emits the noise that you can hear in the first
couple seconds of the video (link at botom).  It happens when backing up, when you
turn the wheel.  The wheel does not have to be fully turned for this to happen.  The
dealer can't duplicate the condition, but I seem to be able to.  The car has 70K miles,
and has done it since new, although it is getting worse.  Is this something that
eventually will need to be replaced?

If your power steering system is hydraulic (uses fluid) have you checked the fluid? If it's low, top it off. But do NOT use transmission fluid. Unless, of course, that's what Chrysler says to use. HTH. -Jim

The dealer actually drained and refilled the power steering fluid. It did not help at all.

Could very well be a bad pump or rack & pinion unit then. HTH. -Jim
