Question about Ford Festiva

Steering problems in 91 ford festiva.

I Have a 1991 ford festiva and i have put a new clutch kit and a new rack and pinion in it and it feels like when i push in the clutch to shift gears it pulls to the left. Not a hard pull but it still pulls. Something just doesnt feel right with the steering and i dont know what else it could be. A little help please?

Sounds like lower control arm is lose. Either ball joint or tierod end are bad or not tight. Check nut for tightness. If tight jack front of car up and shake tire up down left right. That will show you whats lose

SOURCE: tdi clutch pedal pushed all the way down but hard to shift gears

Check your clutch fluid level, sometimes a seperate reservoir (drivers side on firewall), some clutch systems take fluid from the brake system (check brake fluid). If thats ok then the clutch slave may be failing.
If the clutch fluid is low refill it and check for leaks (or just wait till the symptom comes back). If it's happens often then theres a leak in the line or the slave somewhere.

Ther is an adjustment on the steering link between the drop arm ball joint and the oppositi wheel . Loosen the clamps and turn the shaft with a pipe wrench while noting the steering position.

SOURCE: steers hard when turning around

try lucas power steering stop-leak. drain some of the fuild and then pour that in. it is for surging rack & pinions, not just for leaks. if that doesn't work then you may have a defective rebuilt rack.
check power steering pump pressure, might be weak.

SOURCE: rack and pinion or steering kit

your vehicle has a transverse mounted engine and most newer vehicls have rack and pinion steering versus a shaft going to a gear box with a drag link and sway bar type steering system. most full size suvs have the gear box set up. some suvs like dodge durango have both a gear box and a rack and pinion. your vehicle has only the rack and pinion

1991 toyota camry stiff steering no leaks, safe to drive?


No, it is not unfortunately. This may be an indication of impending total failure, and you can't really handle the car well in traffic.

If the reservoir fluid level is OK, then the next thing to check is that the drive belt is tight enough to drive the steering pump.

If that appears OK then either you have a fault inside the pump or steering rack valve, or there is something binding in the steering knuckle ball joints, and that will need a specialist.

My 2003 ford focus lost it's power steering, mechanic replaced the rack and pinion thing - lost steering again and now the mechanic says it is the power steering pump. The rack and pinion was replaced...


if the rack and pinion was not leaking or causing problems. then he may of made a wrong move! if the rack was fine before, and you just lost power steering. then it is most likely the power steering pump or the lines that go from rack to the pump. good-day ! if a rack goes bad, you will get a bad steering problem or just bad steering.

How to install rack and pinion bellow boots on 1991 honda accord


Inside the boot toward to rack (inner tie rod) there is a washer that has to be removed. Then you'll be able to see the wrench contact area that has to be removed to release the inner tie rod from the rack. Then just put it all back together, don't forget the washer lock. Turn the steering wheel as far as it will go according to which sides you're working on at the time to get the most comfortable access.

UNSOLVED MYSTERY.


hello.

so from what i understand, you say when you move the selector from park to reverse or park to drive the car feels as though it lunges, or you can feel the car move into a loaded position forcefully, while watching the engine and transmission shift.

if that is correct, than you could have an engine performance issue, an internal transmission malfunction or simply failed engine and/or transmission mounts,

NOT an issue with your rack and pinion.

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.
