Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee
There is also a groaning noise . the steering to the right is easier , although a little stiffness near the end of turn & there is some noise.
Note: vechicle sat for two months without driving / started.
it has 114k fo miles.
You need to look to your power steering system. First check your power steering reseivor for proper amount of fluid. If you can see the fluid when you open the reseivor, there's enough fluid..
Next, check deflection in the power steering belt. Should be no more than a 1/2 inch of movement in the center of belt. Be sure the engine is off.
If all this is ok, problem can be in the power steering rack and pinion unit. These can not be repaired, only replaced.
One last check. With engine running, have someone slowly rotate the steering wheel completely from side to side while you watch the wheels to determine if they are traveling through a complete turn. If not, this can also be a problem with rack and pinion.
