Sounds like it might be a bad CV joint. There may be a groove in one of the joints ball races that only binds when torque is applied to the joint.I thought of a dry ball joint,but you said only when you are driving and a ball joint would do it all the time.

I drive 2002 yukon denali and was making a sharp turn when the front wheels lock. They wont turn, i finally got them to turn enough to back up out of the way. It looks like it has enough ps fluid


a broken CV or UJ on a drive shaft can cause the steering to lock up , jack up front end and check for damage to the drive shaft's rubber covers to the drive joints, push/pull wheels in and out , as in steering motion while spinning wheel and feel if there is anything restricting a smoth movement , hope this helps

When an inner cv joint cause's a side to side shudder do you feel it in the steering wheel also? Because i dont have any movement in mine


Cv axles can be felt in the steering. I can tell the difference from the CV axles and a bad bearing. But when both are bad, you can't tell. Both will feel the same, but can make the same sound. The best way to check a CV axle is to pull it out. Then rotate the ends in a circular pattern. If it isn't smooth and has like a flat/catching spot. The axle is bad and will vibrate. You can hear it and feel it in the steering. Bearings will get loader or softer when turning left or right.

Steering tight then loose


Could be a restriction in the power steering system where the pump is working part-time.

My steering wheel is really sticky when im making turns i throught it needed power steering fluid but that wasn't the case. Can anybody tell me what could it be?


Its the steering arm, under the hood drivers side, it connects the steering column shaft to the steering gear box. The small universals get really rusty. causes it to bind. don't try to lube them it doesn't work. About $50.00 from ford.

I FEEL MOVEMENT IN FLOOR BOARD WHEN I TURN THE STEERING WHEEL of my 2003 GALANT


Something is bad wrong. You've got a loose steering system or perhaps a frame to body mount is loose or failing. You ned to have it inspected right away.

Do Ball Joints have to be inspected? Replaced? How Often?


here is how to inspect, refer to general picture, using lever under wheel pull up on lever if movement is noticed at joint they need replacing, can feel movement if you leave your other hand on wheel at top. jack must be placed in under arm for one ball joint to be checked and then under crossmember for other. usually check when suspension problem/steering problem is noticable or bad tyre wear, looseness feel in steering(slop) when shimmy steering wheel one way and then the other.

2004 expedition,at low speed the steering wheel moves back and forth.rotated tires front to back and problem is still there,help


I will try to help you locate the problem.First check the steering and suspension:
NOTE: Park yhe wehicle on level ground, turn the engine off and set the parking brake.
1. Visualy inspect the steering and suspension components for damage and distortion, Look for damaged seals, boots and bushings and leaks of any kind.
Clean the lower end of the steering knuckle. Have an assistant grasp the lower edge of the tire and move the wheel in-and-out while you look for movement at the steering knuckle to control arm balljoint. If there is any movement the suspension balljoints must be replaced.
Grasp each front tire at the front and rear edges, push in at the front, pull out at the rear and feel for play in the steerin system components if any freeplay is noted, check the idler arm and the tie-rod ends for looseness.
Please let me know if this is of any help.

SYMPTOMS OF BALL JOINT WEAR


If you make a hard right or left hand turn (with steering wheel turned until it stops) you'll hear and feel a pop sensation.When you drive over potholes you'll feel a slight pull to one side.If it is one of the upper balljoints,you can grab the tire with both hands near the top(11 and 1 o'clock) and pull the wheel back and forth.You will feel looseness if the upper balljoint is bad.
