Question about 1995 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Serpentine belt The back wheel, i believe the power steering wheel, seems a little crooked. Should it be straight up and down like the other "wheels" or should it stick out a little bit...or is this a bigger issue than I think. Put new belt on and noticed this and still makes squeaking sound so curious.

All the pulleys for the belt should be straight and in line. If one is not straight, it needs adjusting or moved.

You mean that when you are going straight the steering wheel is not or do you mean up and down? if you mean crooked while driving straight this has to be corrected by alignment of the wheels.

Why is the steering wheel not straight as the car goes straight?


Because the car need a front-end alignment.
Here's how that works.
The steering wheel is attached to 2 tie rods (they go by different names sometimes).
These tie rods are then attached one to each front wheel.
There are at least 2, and sometimes 4 adjustments for these under the front of the car.
When someone does a front end "alignment". they will loosen all these joints and will set the wheel straight to match the direction of the car.
Over the years, these parts wear and the wheel gets crooked.
Be blessed.

Steering wheel shakes when the Aircon unit is on but if the Aircon is off it seems okey. pls advised.


First, check the level of your power steering fluid and top up the level if low. Then adjust your serpentine belts. A loose belt may be causing the the steering wheel. To adjust your alternator belt . First , take off the negative battery cable so you do not blow an expensive fuse on the positive battery cable clamp. Facing the back of the car, reach UNDER the alternator and loosen the bolt on the bottom right side, now loosen the bolt on the adjuster block on top, you can now turn the adjuster bolt and move the alternator to change or adjust the belt.
To take off or adjust the steering pump belt on the front of the motor, you need to loosen the nut on the back side of the adjuster pulley (right side ,belt is on the left) . With the adjuster pulley loose , you can use the adjuster bolt to move the pulley forward and backward to adjust the steering pump belt tension

When it is cold or wet, I get a loud squealing noise from under the hood when I first turn the steering wheel. It doesn't matter if it is right or left. It does not happen in warm or dry weather.


HI, this is the result of a worn power steering belt. in this case, the pulley may be worn or, the entire serpentine belt may be worn altogether. have the power steering pump inspected for pulley and gear damage. inspect the serpentine belt for worn sections as well.

Most common issue will be a worn drive belt(serpentine)

Esp/bas light on, steering wheel off center after off roading


If your steering wheel is off center, this can cause the problem. Luckily this is very easy to fix -- you can do so even if you have little to no experience working on your vehicle.
1. Park the vehicle with the wheels facing straight ahead (drift forward until you are moving in a straight line). Don't worry about the steering wheel position. 2. Locate the steering drag link -- the diagonal rod coming from the bottom of the steering arm to the top of the passenger side steering knuckle (on the axle near the tire) 3. Loosen the two bolts on the rotating adjustment collar on this link. I believe these are 13mm. 4. Rotate the collar one way about two or three turns, check the steering wheel to ensure that the "Jeep" logo is perfectly horizontal. If it's not, continue rotating the collar (or move it in the opposite direction) until the wheel is centered. 5. Tighten down the nuts on the drag link adjuster. 6. Take her for a test drive and let me know how it worked!
