Broken steering coloumn on a 1993 Isuzu Rodeo

I broke the entire steering coloumn to where the whole steering wheel moves in a complete circle and its not conected unless i move the steering wheel position up and pull steering wheel out then it locks in place but while driving it will come out of place again making it where i cannot make left and right turns until i pull out on steering wheel again. I need to know how to replace the entire steering wheel if anyone can help me. ive looked in all the manuals and cannot find my exact prob. Thank you so much.

    The entire steering wheel coloumn is snapped. Someone went crazy and started shaking the steering wheel and hitting it until it came completely loose and it kinda kust hangs there.

    Is it broke, or did the coupling come loose?

  • montehammons Dec 30, 2012

    You might be able to see the coupling from underneath the car.

Maybe the coupling on bottom of column that connects to the rack and pinion came loose. The coupling may be held tight by a pinch bolt.

SOURCE: when turning steering wheel to left very hard to turn

Sounds like the begining of a bad rack n pinion. We can eliminate the pump because the car turns to the right fine. There is no loss of fluid? The only thing left is the rack. It is a fairly commin issue. Use to call it morning sickness, The cars would be hard to turn in the morning or when first started but after running and warming up for a while they would start to work properly.

SOURCE: My 2001 PT Cruiser ignition switch will not turn.

was the ignition switch getting hard to turn with the key for a while or did this just all of a sudden happen usually the problem has been going of for a while but people just ignore it until it gets to this point,it sounds like the tumblers in the ignition key switch have gone bad and the tumbler assembly needs to be replaced,the new tumbler assembly can keyed to the original key if the key is not worn out.this should be replaced with a new key if it is.

How hard is it to fix a broken tie rod in a1995 isuzu rodeo

wp_20150427_18_33_35_pro_zpsw60dn6xc-lkwhkfwj330knc5ai5uhyzz2-4-0.jpg you need to remove the nut allway then screw back on and hit the to or the coupling area, this will release the shaft so you don't get hit by the rod. do this on both ends, when removed measure the length of the rod, if its the same make as the one replacing count the treds and put the new one to the same length, this will keep your tracking in line as much as possible, then tighten the nuts. and fit. push the shaft into the original hole and tighten down with the nut, its always best to do both times when they are replaced, as they would both take the impact and the impact of the road. should only take a novice a couple of hours to do both sides, if steering out i would recommend getting the tracking done as the accident could of move other parts out of alignment.

1998 Isuzu Rodeo The key will not turn in the ignition. I can get it in and out. the steering wheel cant turn. What are my options to trouble shoot or repair

Try moving the Steering Wheel, put a little muscle into it. Some vehicles have a steering column lock that prevents the key from being turned if in the locked position

The speedometer is not working on my 1995 isuzu rodeo 2 wheel drive

I think its cable driven (not electronic) with car on flat/safe ground crawl under and remove speedo cable from rear of gear box and try to quickly turn the inner cable (both ways) while someone watches the speedo for any action, if nothing happening remove complete cable-look for break in inner cable/replace. if needle did flicker then check for worn/broken gear in speedo head/ gearbox (rare), 9 times out of 10 cable broke.

The front hub assembly is loose behind wheel nit sure if it could be broke at hub or the axle all together still drives fine no pull or shake

Hi, this could be caused by worn ball joints or worn wheel bearings. If the whole hub moves look at the ball joints to determine the play on the joints, if the wheel moves and there are no movement on the ball joints, then you need to replace the wheel bearings.

2001 Isuzu rodeo turn signal switch. How hard is it to replace? The turn signal lever is broken and needs to be replaced.

Not a big job. Start with the plastic mouldings around the steering colum then the four star screws on the bottom of the steering wheel for the airbag unplug the air bag wires unscrew the big nut holding the steering wheel pull off the steering wheel unscrew the cluster unplug and replace.
