The Grand Caravan uses rack and pinion and the gears will hardly ever fail. If they did, slack in the steering or a loss of steering would be typical symptoms. Normal failure will be to the internal seals. Common symptoms will be loss of power steering fluid (leak) or loss of power steering, too much steering effort.
