To spartan. My hubs have acted up like that. Pull them apart & clean them up good, lightly but thouroughly cover in axle grease. If you put too much axle grease in,they wont function right. Once, out on the trail, i just pulled them and shot wd40 in and it helped. I think it helped make the grease ,loosen up.

You might be better to start a thread in the 99-02 forum I would pull the pan and inspect the inside and pump pickup/ screen, clean and replace as needed. when you turn the steering pump is placing a load on an already poor running engine so that can compound the problem.

Need some help! My 97 will start in cold weather, but when I start to drive its seems as if it is struggling for air and produces a much louder sound under the hood. I have checked connections both air and electrical and could not locate any obvious issues under the hood. Air filter is new and I recently had the glow plugs replaced and pcm replaced. I only encounter this problem in cold temperatures 45 and below and while driving. The sound and rough running will decrease if I increase my speed, but it will return as the speed is reduced. When in park or stopped I don't encounter the problem.

Frustrated

This is probably not the thread to ask questions like this. It sounds like your EBPV is functioning as it should. In cold weather the valve closes to supposedly warm up the engine quicker. Once your engine warms up I'll bet the noise goes away. Most guys just unplug it, the connection is found near the turbo pedestal on the drivers side. Even in cold climes unplugged seems to make little difference other than an annoying noise and doggy acceleration till it opend back up again.

There are many threads on this issue.
