Need help replacing steering column in 1988 dodge dekota


Yes you can replace the tilt column with a straight standard column on an 88 Jeep Wranger, it is a simple bolt in swap. Make sure you don't pinch any of the wires while swapping and it cause a bunch of headaches.

Okay, my boyfriend owns a 2000 ford f-250 super duty and your prolly wondering as to why im asking about this instead of him ... well im more mechanically inclined then he is lol funny huh... okay heres...


It sounds like the shift tube bushings are worn out. There are usually 2 u shaped clamps that have nylon bushings that hold the shift tube to the steering clumn. If loose, that throws off the shift position, could be btween 2 gears at once, and throws off the park - neutral safety switch. Fix that first.

How to tighten 1989 steering column?


There is a u-joint inside the steering column if you have tilt wheel. Which I don't think that I have ever seen a steering column get loose if there is not tilt wheel. If there is not tilt wheel then there are two bolts that hold the steering column up against the bottom side of the dash. You will just need to tighten these two bolts. If you do have tilt wheel, then it is going to require taking the steering column out and replacing the u-joint in the steering column.

My 83 z28 has a loose steering column, the up and down tilt works fine but the top of the column is moving left to right aprox 2inch's either way. I have checked all of the mount points and all are tight


i had to call a mobile repairman who works on steering columns to come and tighten up my steering wheel,he tightened something up inside and cost me about 50 bucks,some kind of steering joint or knuckle inside!

1985 ford F150: Turned key to start my truck, and felt something go "crunch". I removed the steering wheel and the lock mechanism in the steering column. All looks fine. Do you have any idea what could...


It may be the 'actuator'. It is a rod that connects the lock cylinder to the ignition switch on the tilt wheel units. It is made of aluminum and often breaks as things become worn.

Steering wheel doesnt move up or down automatically


This happened on my 97 RL.

I cant say for sure with yours, but for mine, the gear for the up/down action somehow broke and developed an inch long gap.

Anyhow, google "acura rl steering column", click on any of the first few links and you will get an idea of what you are working with.

Remove the panel underneath the steering wheel. The motor for the up/down will be right behind that facing down. Unscrew the 4 screws on the panel connecting the motor to the column.

Once the motor is off, check to see if that is the problem (it shouldnt be) simply by using the tilt steering switch. If the motor is fine, check the gear it was just attached to. It will be really greasy, but check to see if the gear is sound.

If it is a broken gear, I unfortunately dont know how to fix it. If more than one person is driving the car (as in my case) you can finagle the motor onto the gear using the tilt switch and you can move the wheel into a happy medium for both parties (using the seat for fine tuning). Once done, and every thing is put back together, disconnect the motor cord cause the wheel will be able to tilt, but will get stuck again once it hits the gap in the gear.

Tilt steering doesnt work blows fuses


The wire that supplies a live to your radio, runs from ignition down the steering column. You probably have a chafed wire along that loom, as you tilt the steering, the wire grounds so the accessories fuse/radio fuse blows. Remove the panel under the steering column and/or the shroud around the column and examine the wiring.
