My car is Town and Country 2003, but I think it's either close too or
identical to a dodge van.
The question is that my power steering pump made noise, so I am
changing it. However, I heard that I need to clean the oil filter for
this tool. My question is this:
1) Is there such a thing (oil filter for steering pump), and if so,
where is it?
2) If the oil filter is in the reservoir as one of the mechanics I
talked to, how do I take it out. Look at the reservoir, it seems to
be a plastic container that doesn't have way to open it (I haven't
taken it out yet).
3) Do I have to change the oil too? How? The mechanics told me that
poor oil on top, and let it pushes the old oil out. That means I have
to have an opening in the bottom somewhere. One place I can see is
the 2 input/output of the oil cooler. Also, if I let oil out of one
of those 2 two, would that be enough (full path)?
4) If I need to change the oil, then it seems I need to put back the
oil pump first, the question is that would it block the oil flow when
I change the oil?
