2005 Ford Taurus - Almost impossible to turn steering wheel

Pulling out of my driveway I could not turn the steering wheel without very much effort. The temperature outside is -13 degrees below zero. Could that be the reason?

Steering wheel is somewhat tight and makes loud annoying squeaking noise when turning in either direction.


try removing the steering wheel cover and spray WD40 down the shaft --
also - take down the vin number - call the dealer and ask about recalls - some items will remain for the life of the car - till fixed or replaced

When place in four wheel steering becomes very hard, and pulling in my driveway front tires locked up. only happens in 4 wheel. 2005 dakota


A Dodge Dakota with 4-wheel steer? Do you happen to mean 4-wheel drive?

If so, you should not operate the vehicle in 4-wheel drive when you are traveling on a hard, high-traction surface. When in 4x4, the transfer case connects the front and rear axles, and does not allow for differentiation of wheel speeds necessary when turning. This is compensated for when driving over low-traction terrain because the tires slip easier.

Basically, the jerking, bucking and locking of the truck is due to the binding. This will eventually lead to damage in the driveline. If the roadway isn't covered in snow, there is no need for the 4 wheel drive to be engaged.

Bent ford logo on the steering wheel


I would recommend a salvage yard but be careful if there is a full charge in the air bag canister it could go off but to answer your question it is not hard to do I would unplug the plugs on the steering column below for safety before I start prying and there should be some screws behind the steering wheel
