Question about 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee
My mothers 93 jeep cherokee is having a major problem turning to the left. The steering wheel turns about 1/2 full circle or 180 degrees when turning to the left. If its a sharp turn I have to back up until I can get into where I'm going. Also the steering wheel is "floating " counterclockwise at the rate of about 1/8 an inch daily I estimate. I noticed this when I was driving and the steering wheel was upside down going straight down the road about 2 weeks or so ago and now it has come on around straight again and is progressively going around again. There is no movement in the steering wheel itself. Its tight. Please help!
Check both front wheels with the steering wheel centered. One or both may appear to be pointing in the wrong direction slightly. Check both sleeves on the tie rod ends to make sure they are tight and not able to turn. (adjustment sleeves are slightly different than on most cars. One sleeve extends from the drivers side across the front and is about 21/2' long the other is shorter and is about 5" to the passenger side of the pitman arm on the steering box. If either moves, turn it 'till the wheels are fairly straight, tighten the bolts that are on the clamp around the slotted tube, and bring it to an alignment shop and have the toe in re-set.
A condition such as this is nothing to mess with. loss of steering is extremely dangerous.
