Will it kill or cut off the motor, if you turn the wheel left/right siting still or is it only while your moving?
Check the ground I think there are two grounding straps on your motor make sure they good un bolt them and clean real well.
Also, I quote additional tips from others Jeep owners... "Its finally fixed!! The problem i had with my jeep cutting off when i
turned right was... the steering column... yeah never would have
guessed... buddy up at nissan said chevys had a problem with it and i
probly did to... just enough torque on the column turning right for my
little ignition rod to pull away and turn it off... started my jeep...
pulled hard on the steering wheels and WAM!! it cut off... I jsut
thought my tilt was broke but he says theres bolts in the that come
loose and need to be tightened... tilt and cutting off with be fixed!"
sounds as though you have play in steering gear box- most of the time thier is a lock nut on top with a slotted screw in middle loosen lock nut and tighten screw then reset lock nut. do not over tighten slotted screw in fact tighten and then back off half turn so steering box is not too tight.
hi, there is an adjustment, on the top of the steering gear box, you will see a nut tightened against a cover on a stud. this is the sector shaft of the steering gear box. what you can do, is loosen the nut, and turn the shaft(not the nut) clockwise a quarter turn at a time(90 degrees only at one time) then check your steering wheel freeplay, you can go back and tighten a quarter of a turn again if not as tight as you want. do not tighten past one full turn! if you still can't get the steering free play tight as you want, you will have to replace the gearbox. when/if you do get the freeplay where you want, tighten the nut back down to spec. probably around 32 ft lbs. follow the steering shaft from the firewall to where the gearbox is located to find the nut i speak of right on the top or to the inside toward the engine.
Usually if you will rock the steering wheel back and forth with your left hand while trying to turn the key with your right , it will break loose. My sister's car is real bad about it especially if she parks on a side slope.
there may be an adjustment screw on top of the gear box,the problem is all it really does is makes the steering wheel harder to turn.if you do try it then do only 1/2 turn..if you go too tight then the gears wont mesh right
power steering belt broken or fell off, or the pump is out of oil. The pump is down on the right hand side (passenger) between the fire wall and the engine. You should be able to see if the belt is still on. Check the resevoir for oil. It is on the same side. It's a little plastic pot with a dipstick. Let me know how you make out.
