Q: The vehicle makes a sound when turning.

asked by on

I believe the power steering pump needs to be replaced. How much? How long does something like that take?

My car has 159000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. The power steering pump will take about 2 to 5 hours to replace depending on the person who is replacing it if they have experience in replacing the part from that particular vehicle.

Billing question was sent to CS for the cost to replace the power steering pump on a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee - unknown engine.
