Either tighten the steering wheel up yourself or take it to a repair shop. It could be anything if the steering wheel is tight.

Play in stering linkage


The most common of all problems in a steering system is excessive steering wheel play. Steering wheel play is normally caused by worn ball sockets, worn idler arm, or too much clearance in the steering gearbox. Typically, you shou Id not be able to turn the steering wheel more than 1 1/ 2 inches without causing the front wheels to move. If the steering wheel rotates excessively, a serious steering problem exists.

An effective way to check for play in the steering linkage or rack-and-pinion mechanism is by the dry-park test. With the full weight of the vehicle on the front wheels, have someone move the steering wheel from side to side while you examine the steering system for looseness. Start your inspection at the steering column shaft and work your way to the tie-rod ends. Ensure that the movement of one component causes an equal amount of movement of the adjoining component.

Watch for ball studs that wiggle in their sockets. With a rack-and-pinion steering system, squeeze the rubber boots and feel the inner tie rod to detect wear. If the tie rod moves sideways in relation to the rack, the socket is worn and should be replaced.

Another way of inspecting the steering system involves moving the steering components and front wheel BY HAND. With the steering wheel locked, raise the vehicle and place it on jack stands. Then force the front wheels right and left while checking for component looseness.

I njust noticed my steering wheel in my 2000GMC 1500 is now rotated about 100 degrees when the truck is going straight. My mech. says tie rods and tierod ens are tight and everthing seems normal...he did...


a bad idler arm/pitman arm, You will have a hard time trying to keep the car going straight, it will wander all over the road.
  1. Road walking. When the vehicle wanders back and forth in the direction of travel and it is difficult to keep it straight.
  2. When sitting still, there is considerable play in the steering wheel. It can be moved considerably with no resistance.
  3. When sitting still, and with the front wheels off the ground, it is possible to move the wheels side to side without the steering wheel moving. If there is to much play in the steering wheel or side to side movement of the wheel when the vehicle is stopped could indicate there is a problem with the idler arm.

Should the steering wheel be I'm the correct originally position AFTER replacing pitman and idler arms?


Hi!!
Yes, if the Steering Wheel was not removed, it should be in the original position after making any repairs to the steering system. If Wheel is moved to either side, the repairs made need to be rechecked, before removing the pitman and idler arms, the position of the old arms should have been marked or noted to install the new arms the same way.
Good Luck! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

What does a ideler arm for a 2003 Kia Rio do problem:


The kia rio uses rack and pinion steering, which does not use an idler arm. Did someone tell you you had an idler arm?

For cars that have classical steering designs, the idler arm is a part of the steering linkage that makes the front wheels turn about the same on both sides. Actually, the wheel on the side of the turn turns a little bit more. The idler arm is necessary for the wheels to turn properly. When the joints in the idler arm wear out, the right wheel is allowed to move back and forth on it's own. This causes vinration, excess tire wear, and possibly an unsafe steering condition if the wear is excessive. .

To much play in 1999 dodge Ram 1500 steering wheel, how can I fix


Sounds like worn out steering parts.
Jack up the front end of the truck. Move each front tire side to side and look at the steering linkages.
Normally, when you turn the tire on one side, the tire on the othe side should move at the same time.
It's the best way to find out what steering components are worn out.
