1997 ford f250 steering problem

1997 ford f250 7.3 l 4x4 . When turning especially to th right, the steering wheel will not come back fully. It fights you to the right and will actually pull the wheel that way. to correct it you have to turn completely to right then back left. It will clear and not happen again for awhile. Ford already replaced steering box for what they thought was a bad spooling gear but problem still happens

It could be the front axle u-joint binding up. i had the same problem, and that's what it was. i put greaseable u-joints on both sides.

Check the tie rod, tie rod ends, and ball joints for excessive play. Jack up the front on either side and have a helper push and pull on the top or bottom of the tire. Watch the area where the hub pivots on the axle. if both sides check out. with the truck on the ground, have the helper turn the steeribg wheel back and forth about a half turn with the key off. Look for loose outer tie rod ends, and inner tie rod ends.
F-250 4x4 steering componants are pretty basic, If your unsure what to look for then take it to someone that knows how to fix it. Correctly. If you replaced any of the joints. It would be in your best interest to get it alighned.

My 97 F250 wont shift out of park? Engine starts,

most likely your brake switch is out. If you had a scanner you would be able to see if the computer see's you pressing on the pedal. Or if you know how to test you could check to see if it switches ( completes the circuit ).

1994 ford probe, steering wheel locks upand I can't turn the ignition.

Make sure there is no tension on your steering wheel, ie; wheels are straight and the steering wheel is not sitting sideways.
Sometimes the pressure from any kind of bind on the front wheels/rack and pinion, can cause the ignition to lock. Especially when parked on inclines.

Your power steering engine/ pully has gone bad. needs a replacement then.

Take care and do fix it on time before you get the steering rack damaged.

Good luck.
