Try reaccomplishing the bleed procedures and that should help your problem!

SYSTEM BLEEDING

  1. Fill the steering pump with fluid. Operate the engine until it reaches normal operating temperature, then stop the engine.
  2. Turn the wheels to the full left and full right position to circulate the fluid. Add fluid to reservoir to maintain full level. Start the engine. Check the fluid level and add if necessary.
  3. Purge the system of air by turning the wheels from side-to-side without going to the full left or right position.
  4. Return the wheels to straight ahead position and operate the engine for 2-3 minutes, then stop the engine. Add fluid necessary. Road test the vehicle.

You either have a failing power steering hydraulic pump or the steering rack and pinion unit has a seal leak and needs to be replaced. Try installing a can of power steering sealer from an auto parts store it may help.

Rack pinion


There is one adjustment to the steering gear, but this doesn't remove very much play in the steering. And once set, I have never seen them back off ( it's the big nut on the back of the rack, break it loose, then turn the inner nut, Just a little through. You get it to tight and it will be hard to turn). If you have a lot of play, look at the tierod ends, inner and out. There are also two universal joints on the steering shaft that could cause a lot of play. One by the rack and one under the dash. There are bushings/bearing that hold the steering shaft in place, These don't cause much left or right play, they will cause the steering wheel to be sloppy at the column.

Hy does my steering wheel have play in it?


Tie rod ends,the Pitman arm,and the idler arm are the most common parts to cause steering wheel play.Even if none of these is worn badly,the play will add up to make it worse.The best way to find the part or parts with excessive play is to observe the linkage while someone moves the wheel back and forth.They should just "twitch" the wheel,not turn it lock to lock.I'm sure you'll see what's worn out(just remember that a little play at the linkage will translate to a lot in the wheel,so if you see ANY exccessive movement that doesn't look right,just replace the part).

The steering wheel is has too much play in it.


Steering wheel play can be caused by many parts including tie rods, idler arms, pitman arms. drag links, the gear box itself or the shaft and connectors between the steering wheel and the gear box. I would recommend inspecting all of these things and repair or replace as necessary.

97 RAM 1500 4X4 replaced steering box and some


2 inches @ the steering wheel? i do not recommend tampering with the screw on the gearbox. that is for adjusting the sector shaft, usually only adjusted on high mileage gearboxes. since most of your driving is straight the gearbox worm gear wears out in that position, by adjusting it, it tightens up the gap in the gears the problem comes in when turning because it can be too tight on the ends of the shaft possibly binding up in your gearbox.and no matter what happens next it probably wont be good. try checking the couplings in the steering shaft. with the vehicle off, steering unlocked, have someone move the steering wheel left and right making sure not to move the tires, your looking to see play at all joints, couplings, or pivots. where you see one piece moving and the other not.

I have a lot of play in the steering wheel


Provided as to wether or not your model has a steering damper (if smo, may likely need replacing) and the ball joints check good, it may be likely that you have a worn steering gear. Many types are adjustable or rebuildable.
