How to replace the torque sensor of a 08 mazda tribute? and where is it?

I have a 2008 mazda tribute "4 cylinder" and the power steering stops working, it happens sometimes when i first start the car and all i have to do is turn it off and back on again for it to start working, however the steering wheel keeps shaking without having to move the vehicle... I had one of my friends put a scanner from his work and it says the torque sensor is bad... please help I don't know where it is or if that is the cause of the problem.. thanks in advance

2008 Mazda tribute won't start easily and normally anymore. Sometimes only starts when I turn the key all the way very hard while putting pressure on it . It's like pressing the key inward whi


It sounds like it is a linkage issue between the lock cylinder and the ignition switch. The ignition switch is located on the steering column and there is usually a rod that connects the lock to the switch. These switches have some adjustment, so you should be able to loosen the bolts and move the switch up the column. Just remove the panels below the steering column and look for a bunch of wires plugged in towards the bottom of the steering column.

2006 and 2008 Tires making wabbling noise


It sounds like you have a wear pattern in the tires. If the tires wear rotated from left to right this problem will be exacerbated because they are going in the opposite direction. If you can't live with it then rotate back to the original positions or replace tires
