That is commonly from worn tie rods. Grab the (outer) tie rods near the tires and shake and twist them. If they move easily when you twist them, or have any play at all, they are pretty worn and need replacing. Have a shop check the inner tie rods that are close to the rack and pinion unit. Not as easy to check, but if the tie rod shafts are loose feeling, then you probably need either inner tie rods or outer ones. The outer tie rods are much easier to replace- a DIY type job, but you need to thoroughly understand the procedure.

What is wrong with my car


That sounds very much like you broke off a tie rod end. Check to see if the front wheels agree with each other. Turn the steering far left, verify both front wheels are turned left. Turn the steering far right, verify both wheels are turned right. If the front wheels don't agree, DO NOT attempt to drive the car - have it towed somewhere or have someone repair the steering where it sits.

I had a brand new steering rack fitted by a mechanic, when he fitted the rack he forgot to connect the column, turned the steering wheel & said oops I forgot to connect the column, connected it all, tested it & it was fine, the day after there was play on the steering wheel, an inch left & an inch right before it steered, ive just got used to it now. But why would you say it was doing that?

What is causeing loose play in my steeringwheel when i turn it left or right?


If there is no shaking or clunking you can probably rule out tie rods or ball joints, have your steering box checked for a worn or damaged worm gear,this can be adjusted

My camaro squeaks really loud whenever i turn the steering the wheel left or right whether I'm moving or sitting still. It sounds like it's coming from both sides of the front end.


tie rod ends dry? this kind of thing is easily found if one person moves the wheel and the other listens and/or feels the different front end components. loud squeaks are generally accompanied by vibration which is hard to miss if you get down close to it.

How do I take out the slack of right and left of my steering wheel on a 1991 chevy truck?


Google states: Hold the ateering shaft at the steering box with a wrench or channel locks, have someone get in and turn the wheel. If the wheel turns and the shaft doesn't, then your problem (or at least part of it) is in the shaft between the wheel and the box. If the wheel does not turn then hold the steering box output shaft and do the same thing. If the wheel turns and the arm does not then you have play in the box. This should be adjustable. If there is no play in the box then check the tie rods and ball joints.

Whining noise is probably in one of the pulleys or belts. Probably the power steering. And the popping is probably CV axles.

Power steering not working, check power steering fluid and it is full


If you mean it is very hard to turn steering wheel & it wont or barely returns after steering to left or right. Look at bottom of steering column shaft under the hood. It is very common for steering shaft u-joints to become dried & seized up. Spray up both u-joints & rubber rag joint with a good penetrating oil like " PB Blaster" it is magnetic & will lubricate seized u-joints. Be sure to turn all the way left & spray & all the way right & spray. Let sit for a bit then turn wheel all the way left & all the way right. If it gets better then be sure to lubricate every so often. If it doesn't get better you will need to change the steering shaft.

I have a 2007 Pontiac G5 and the power steering started to fail gradually until now that it does it after driving the car on a stray line for a few seconds, if I turn the driving wheel left and right...


Keep in Mind that WITH NO POWER STEERING AT ALL The Faster you Drive the EASYER it is to Stear Lft & Rght. Having Said that If your Car is Hard to Steer While Sitting in PARK and Turning the Steering Wheel Left AND Right , This Sounds as if your Power Steering Pump Is Bad for1 and it May have Contaminated The STEERING RACK , this is A MAIN Component in the Steering System.
