    Pulsing Steering Wheel?

    Hello all, my truck is experiencing a pulsing in the steering wheel while turning but also while I'm parked and not moving.

    The dealership replaced front axle u joints which didn't help.

    I'm thinking something in the steering system, any thoughts?

    Thanks

    I am thinking power steering pump or pressure sensor issue.

    Check power steering fluid level and scan for trouble codes first.

    There is resistance when you turn wheel and then it like loses resistance and the comes back.

    Repeats over and over.

    Does the power steering fluid look like it has air bubbles/foaming?

    Do you have a warranty left on it?

    Dealership called and told me they checked another RAM and it did the same, so they would replace gear box for the cost of 1700.00 with no guarantee it would fix issue.

    I asked about warranty sorry no help.

    So I took truck home and I'll flush steering fluid first and just go from there.

    Sorry man but I call BS on the dealership part.

    That’s NOT a normal thing and for them to tell you they checked another truck and it does the same thing?

    Nope they told you a lie just to get out of warranting it.

    Take it to another dealership or better yet make them show you on the truck they “checked” that it’s doing the same thing.
