Question about 1997 GMC Jimmy
As I pulled into a parking lot recently, I heard a pop come from the vehicle. As soon as I heard the pop, I was able to turn the steering wheel, however the tires will not turn...what gives?
Sounds like you broke a tie rod end, or a steering linkage connection.
Do you see anything that connects to the wheels hanging down?
Open the hood, and look at where the steering column shaft goes down. Can you see it turn? (this will take to people to see)
If that shaft turns, where it connects to the wheels, look at the tie rod (the long rod that connects to both front wheels), do you see it move?
