SOURCE: Turn Signals and Highbeams don't work

I took it to a shop, the only one I trust 35 miles away. My car had a bad fuse and some dirt in the fuse box. They cleaned it off, replaced the fuse and that fixed it for good. $45 charged.

SOURCE: tie rods on Volvo C70

Unless you have air tools with and air compressor. Your going to have to pry off those tie rod with a air hammer with a prying fork. It not that expensive. Buy the tie rods yourself so you dont get stiffed and call around for the best deal.

Sounds like you put the wrong kind of fluid in there.

Also, NEVER list your email address in a public forum. That's the quickest way to get spam known to man.

SOURCE: Volvo 740 Steering wheel problem (moves left right)

You might want to check the two bolts that fix the steering column to the dashboard. They'll become loose over time and the phenomenon appears as horizontal play while turning steering wheel. The bolts are socketless but you can detach them by rotating them with hands if they are already loose, then replace them with appropiate socketed bolts. You'll need to remove one panel in the drivers' footroom. I had the same issue.

Repair shop said steering pump expolded on our 2000 Volvo XC V 70


never heard of the pump exploding... bursting one of the high pressure lines is more likely. new belt afterwards? sure. new battery? dont see how it could have harmed the battery. new tie rod? no way did this damage a tie rod.

replacing burst high pressure line 75.00 for parts
replacing belt 15.00 for parts
replacing power steering pump if needed no more than 150.00 for parts. thats 240.00 for parts... for the sake of argument lets double that for labor. 480.00

replace tie rod (in no way damaged by power steering pump) 35.00 to 125.00 depending on where you get it. installation cost about 75.00 (Tie rods can most often be adjusted to correct problem without having to replace them.
now, new battery (probably not related to the burst line) anywhere from 40.00 to 200.00 from autozone with free installation.

check for loose tie rod ends. Check for loose suspension ball joints and rubbers . Have a wheel alignment done . Check bearing adjustment.. If it is a 4 wheel drive check the condition of the steering shock absorber as they wear out and do not help in the steering control.

Ijust got my transmission rebuilt and i was told that i need new baljoints and a new tire rod for my 1995 lincoln continental. now ever since i got it back from the shop the power steering is gone and...


The wheels pivot around the ball joints when you steer. The tie rod links the front wheels across the car to ensure the correct steering geometry. If the car wanders and wayward in the corners this is because the ball joints and the cross linking tie bar are defective. Have the parts replaced as suggested and have the car alignment checked. Maybe take it to a third party garage if you have little confidence in the suggestions made by your last garage.

Torque specs. for replacing tie rod end on dodge stratus, replacement rod came with slotted nut and cotter pin


Hello
Welcome!
The torque spec for the tyrod ends are 45 foot pounds.

• Unlock the steering wheel before jacking up the vehicle. This allows the Steering linkage to be moved for the best possible access to the ends' fasteners by grabbing one of the axle hubs
• Secure the vehicle on jackstands before removing the wheels.
• Buy name-brand tie-rod ends. Saving a few dollars on cheaply made parts isn't worth the risk.
• Mark the tie-rod ends' positions on their threaded adjusters before removing the old ends. This way, the new ends can be screwed in to approximately the same position as the old ones to get wheel allimint in the ballpark.
• Have the vehicle professionally aligned afterward, especially if the steering wheel isn't centered or the vehicle pulls one direction when attempting to drive straight.

Signs your haveing probloms with the tyrod ends

• Front-end shimmy, shake or vibration.
• Abnormal front-end noise.
• Hard steering.
•steering wheel doesn't return to center properly.
• Vehicle wanders.
• Steering feels unstable, loose or has excessive play.

1997 ford f250 steering problem


Check the tie rod, tie rod ends, and ball joints for excessive play. Jack up the front on either side and have a helper push and pull on the top or bottom of the tire. Watch the area where the hub pivots on the axle. if both sides check out. with the truck on the ground, have the helper turn the steeribg wheel back and forth about a half turn with the key off. Look for loose outer tie rod ends, and inner tie rod ends.
F-250 4x4 steering componants are pretty basic, If your unsure what to look for then take it to someone that knows how to fix it. Correctly. If you replaced any of the joints. It would be in your best interest to get it alighned.

Troubles with steering 03 Ford Super Duty Diesel?


Unfortunately this was a concern on this vehicle, even new they had a tendency to wander all over the road and **** around when hitting bumps and ruts in the road. Inspect your tie rods and ball joints to make sure they are tight, inspect the shaft that connects the steering sector to the steering column for free play. If all these are good remove and inspect the steering damper shock if it has one to make sure it is ok, if it doesn't have a steering shock install one. Ford has all the parts available to install one or you can get a kit from Rancho or other suspension parts company. And last off adjust the free play in the steering sector, you will need to set it tighter the factory specs to get the wander out, then have the alignment checked to make sure it is in spec and your truck should drive normally.
