Possibly the coupling at the bottom of the steering column has pulled apart.

SOURCE: 2004 chev silverado ext cab. No Power steering

Hi Hollings,

You description was very good, I need to ask for a specific.

When you turn to the left, the wheel is stiff like the engine is off or does it turn smoothly but the vehicle doesn't turn or seem to respond.

I'm trying to rule out broken mounts,

Also, if the wheel is all the way to the right, is it difficult turning back to the left the whole way, or half way. See where I'm going.?

Please comment back your findings

Best regards

SOURCE: my 2005 chvey 2500hd diesel truck will not start,

on the back of the engine close to the firewall by the glow plug controller is a high pressure oil switch. if this switch goes out diesel fuel will not reach the injector pump.try pulling the molex and jumping it out with a wire. if it starts. replace the switch. it takes an extra deep socket designed for that switch that can be purchased at any auto supply. good luck!

Currently my 88 Chev half ton has 15'' rims,5 bolt pattern. Can I put 16" rims on?

Dear Lawrence,
This should be fine.
However, remember some precautions.
Be sure the 16's have the same bolt pattern, and, most important, be sure there is clearance for the tires and the wheels.
Both tires and wheels have different sizes, widths, and heights.
I would try a 16 on each location front & rear and test it before you go out and buy anything.
You are particularly looking inside the tires and wheels to be sure nothing will rub, especially when the truck bounces up and down, and when you turn the steering wheel all the way.
God bless our efforts.

Steering wheel is locked even with key can not un lock

If the key goes in and out as it should then the steering wheel is most likely just hung up. Take a hold of the wheel and try to turn it and gently turn the key at the same time. You will need to use force when turning the wheel but not the key. Alot of the chev do this.

Where is the OBD plug on my 2005 Chev Kodiak C4500 with a 6.6 diesel ? is it the round plug under the dash just to the right of the steering wheel? thanks Rand at

Should be located somewhere under the steering column follow the underside of the dashboard, It's a distinctively shaped plug. And the color of it should be black....If you still are unable to find it. go to your nearest auto parts store, and ask them for assistance. Or, you can You tube it, or Google it....

Much play in steering wheel; possibly the 3 set screws in the bottom of steering column? how to fix? this is on 1987 chev 1/2 ton

Replace steering column with a better one or you must break down the steering column all the way down untill you the screws in the bottom of the column and tighten them up. It is some work and you may need to video while you are taking it apart so you can remember how to reinstall it.Good Luck!!!

There is a switch on the transfer case that likes to go out on these, they are about $15 or the front differential actuator is bad, the actuator is the round cylinder that is screwed in under the front diff, both very easy to change

Clunk sound when turning left in 2005 Chev Malibu

I have 3 2005 Malibus - 1 Maxx LT, 1 Sedan LT, and 1 Sedan LS. All three needed to have the steering rod replaced by 50K miles. You'd feel a muted clunk through the wheel when turning. The other light clunk issue I had with the Maxx was I hit a parking curb and it broke the lower radiator bracket. In certain bumps you'd feel a light clunk. A new $22 bracket fixed the issue and now I make sure I never pull too far into the spaces in the garage at work.

2005 chev cobalt will not shift out of 'park' position.

I have a 05 cobalt. One thing you have to make sure is that your pressing the brake while shifting out of park. As far as the wheels not turning while car is off, Completly normal. Reason why, because your power steering pump is not working while the car isnt running.
