Steering coloum loose on 1991 chevy s10 blazer

My steering wheel was very loose, I tightened the 4 screws that were loose. My problem is I can not depress the spring far enough to install the retaining clip. I need a diagram or step by step instillation procedure. I think I am not doing it right

Loose tilt steering column 1991 s10 blazer.


There are 4 bolts around a ratchet ball and gear mech. that come loose due to holding the wheel as one gets in and out of the vehicle. It is a tedious job, to pull the column (you do not have to completely remove the column but almost) and tighten the bolts. I will tell you to do a search for steering column knuckle repair, you will find a site with pictures and detailed instructions. I will search also, and post the site here for you when I find it. I had the same problem and used that site for instructions to repair mine. I just can not find it right now... Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

I have a 88 chevy s10 that has a 2.8 out of a 96 s10 it will start and run but when you turn the steering wheel to the right or left the engine will die so i unplugged everything goin up the steering...


I would say that the problem is going to be under the hood in the steering somewhere. Not in the steering column. Check to make sure that the tie rods are not pulling or pinching a wire.

Steering column is loose at tilt knuckle


General Motor cars will have this problem if you use the steering wheel as leverage to get in and out of the front seat. They use a ratcheting ball and socket to allow the column to tilt. it is held together with 4 screws, like a box. These screws work loose and allow the wheel to feel like it floats. It is a hard job, the steering column has to be almost removed from the car to fix. Removing the steering wheel and all covers down to the floor board / firewall area. The screws that hold the joint together have to be re-tightened and loctite or glued in place. You can find info with pictures here (the instructions are for a Chevy Blazer but the steps are the same) http://www.superchevy.com/tech/sucp_0707_tilt_steering_column/index.html Maybe a job better suited for a dealer or local shop.

1988 chevy s10 blazer 4.3, cut out , will srart but will not stay


Your vehicle as an ignition control module located on top of the distributor (under the cap and rotor) I would pull the ICM and take it to NAPA and have it tested if bad replace it (cost about $80). Sounds like a ICM problem or it could be the ignition switch located on the steering coloum which can't be tested but costs $20. Hope this works

1991 S10 blazer 4x4 4.3 popping coming from the front


the popping sound is the stabilizer links or the lower control arm bushings you can replace all bushings and both link kits for around 50.00 and the light is prob from the sensor on the transfer case or the front end i would remove and clean with dawn dishwashing liquid and put them back.

I have a 1989 Chevrolet Truck CK 2500 2wd. I have had reason to remove the steering wheel and adjoining components to tighten the 4 screws that would loosen from time to time, giving me a sloppy steering...


I am experiencing similar problems on an '89 S-10. I have the entire steering column torn apart. There are 4 bolts inside the steering column that come loose and cause the steering wheel to move a little bit. I fixed that problem, but now I'm stuck. I believe there is something that is supposed to attached the shift tube to the gear bowl or the steering column housing, and now thats where I'm stuck. Hopefully you'll be able to tighten those 4 bolts inside the housing and be done with it, good luck. Anyone else have advice?
