SOURCE: steering hard to turn to the left like power

bad steering problems,,your steering rack most likely,but,have you recently been stuck in ditch? when wheels are straight, look at front of car when parked. do wheels look funny? one going one way, and the other going the other? may be alignment. is it leaking any fluid on either side of the front of the car? drivers side? passenger side? if it's not out of alignment,,,wheels out of alignment,,the steering rack is the problem. it may be faulty. if not leaking fluid,it may still be bad. first i would make a visual test look under the vehicle while someone turned the steering wheel to right and left while car is in park,emergency brake on!! look at the steering arms while they turn the steering wheel from right to left. no fluid leaks? any resistance in turning the wheel? any leaks,if so,go to leak and repair with steering line replacement.no leaks? suspect a bad steering rack. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com i love to volunteer

SOURCE: My 2001 PT Cruiser ignition switch will not turn.

was the ignition switch getting hard to turn with the key for a while or did this just all of a sudden happen usually the problem has been going of for a while but people just ignore it until it gets to this point,it sounds like the tumblers in the ignition key switch have gone bad and the tumbler assembly needs to be replaced,the new tumbler assembly can keyed to the original key if the key is not worn out.this should be replaced with a new key if it is.

Steering on 98 wrangler feels like it has play going into turns both directions


Try this, with the engine off, have someone turn the steering wheel left and right 1/4 turn while you lay on the ground in front carefully watching the movement of all the linkages and stabilizer rod. By your description, it sounds like the bar that is attached to the front differential (pass. side) to the frame mount (driver side) is shot. Observe and confirm.

Left turn signal light dont turn of


I had a problem with an old car one time where the blinker lever thing would turn on only to one position and not either return to neutral(off) or turn to opposite way. I was told to take off the steering wheel (mark alignment notches on shaft and steering wheel thing that goes on shaft)and look at the turn signal mechanism inside to see what makes it go off:found a broken "turn off" piece of plastic that sticks out to make signal go off when you turn the wheel the opposite way or for when you turn the lever/signal to neutral/off position. It was hell remembering how I took things off;I took a picture before and during the surgery...ha,ha. Good luck!!

Keys stuck in ignition. its in park. ( and 3 days out of warrenty)


In the ring around the ignition switch (where your key is stuck) there is a recessed dimple. Get a ballpoint pen, insert into the dimple, hold it there while turning your key to the lock position (if it's not already there) and remove the key.

Grinding noise changes with speed stops when turned right. replaced left front wheel bearing. noise is still there. whats wrong ?


Does sound stop when you turn LEFT?

Turning RIGHT puts the heavy load on the LEFT front wheel.
That initially STOPPED the noise, correct? So why did you change L?

Turning LEFT puts the load on the RIGHT. Did you change the RIGHT?

Let's say this:
If turning RIGHT stops the noise, it's the RIGHT one that's likely bad.
If turning LEFT stops the noise, it's the LEFT one that's more likely bad.

Make sense? Turning RIGHT loads the LEFT wheel; and vice-versa as the WEIGHT SHIFTS AWAY FROM THE TURN.

More than likely it is what some folks call a CV joint problem, not wheel bearings. Try backing up and then going forward to see if "clunking sound" or a sharp "bang" is heard. Wheel bearings and CV joints only work if smooth. Sometimes a BEARING RACE is bad. Also, a bad spindle / part of the CV joint / transaxle assembly worn or badly machined. If in a WET ENVIRONMENT especially, u may want to try marine grade grease or teflon-added grease.




Does sound come from POWER STEERING PUMP area?

Powwer steering out of control


It will probably just sit there when you start the engine, then take off like a rocket when you touch the steering wheel? The wheel will take off in the opposite direction of the way you tried to turn the steering wheel. (you start to turn the wheel to the left and it rips out of your hand and goes right until it slams the full right stop, then rockets back to the left until it hits the full left stop and shoots back to the right again and repeats this process until the engine is shut off.)
If this is the case, you have the hoses from the control valve to the power cylinder reversed.

Bearings or cv joint?


Wheel bearings.
For quickly ruling out the CV Joint, in a parking lot, turn one way in a sharp circle, then the other way circle sharply. A clicking sound is indicative of a bad c/v joint or 1/2 shaft.
Humming while in motion (most of times it will only occur during a specific speed range - over a certain speed goes away) says a wheel bearing is shot.
Normally you should replace both at the same time... however you can check with a laser temp gauge each front hub after driving. The hotter one is bad - or a less scientific approach is to swerve going down the road. and listen for an decrease in noise going in one diretcion over the other.
If you are turning the steering wheel right, and the noise goes away, the right bearing is bad and vice versa.
