Was driving straight at 40 mph and car steering jerked hard to the right and then left


You\'d better have your rack and pinion (the steering gear) checked. That is where the power steering pump sends the fluid to and returns from there. Something is wrong for it to jerk like that. There must be some undue pressure for it to push the cap up-something like a blockage, perhaps. I would have a shop look at it. It may be time for a new rack and pinion gear. If it comes to that, be sure and have the old PS pump and lines and PS reservoir flushed or cleaned out. You don\'t want any of that old fluid to ruin the new rack. Check for dirt, crud, or sludge in the fluid.

Tip

Improve power steering when rack and pinion starts binding.


One of the things you can try on your car before replacing the rack and pinion if your steering starts to bind or hard steering is to treat your PS fluid. I bought a 12 oz. container of Lucas oil, drained the exising PS fluid from my resevoir with a kitchen baster and replaced the fluid with the container of Lucas oil. Within a few days, the steering improvement was quite noticable. I did still need to replace the rack and pinion since it was worn and binding up but the Lucas oil really improved the steering ease and performance. I'd suggest this step first before any major part replacements, like PS pump or the rack and pinion. It may help save $$ The bottle of Lucas oil was $11.00 at a local auto parts outlet.

Our 2002 Cadillac Escalade has a problem when pulling into parking places or making tight turns. The whole vehicle shakes and bumps and it feels like there is no power steering.


There could be a problem with the rack and pinion mechanism.

First, check the fluid level in the power steering pump.

If the level is ok, service to the rack and pinion will be necessary.

There are quite a few things to check here like the rear axle pinion bearing preload and all the wheel hub bearings. The best they you can do is run it while on a rack in 4wd and listen to it from underneith the vehicle.

My 2000 caravan jerks to the right when it shifts


I would have the transaxle mount on the driver side engine compartment checked. One way to get an idea if it may be shot is to start engine, apply park brake, put transaxle in reverse and with one foot on main brake pedal and other on gas give the gas a quick tap and see if you hear a loud thump which will be the transaxle flexing the trans mount. If the rubber insulator is shot then you'll hear it.

1992 honda prelude transmission wont go into gear


Sounds like the pressure plate! Try this, rev the engine for a sec then when it starts to slows down try to put it in reverse - if the gears grind, its the pressure plate which will come with the clutch kit for about 125-175.00.

Steering


sound like your powersteering pump or steering rack and pinion
could be bad.i would say it is your rack and pinion because if your pump was bad your steering would be real hard to turn instead of being jerky.jerking is usally the sign of a bad rack
