Jack up car, remove wheels, pull cotter pins out of outer tie rod ends, tap tie rod ends till joint pops out, next unhook bolt that holds steering wheel to the rack and pinion, disconnect the power steering hose and drain fluid in a can, next remove mounting bolts from the rack and pinion that holds it to the frame, if the exhaust is not in the way yo can get it out without to much trouble, after removing the hoses and the steering knuckle drop the unit down in one piece, book time calls for 4 hours to remove and more time if you replace the inner tie rod ends, go buy a rebuilt unit at the parts store will cost about $400 fo a rebuilt unit, replace bot inner and outer tie rod ends, to install is the reverse procedure, the steering wheel shaft is keyed for it to fit in one way make sure it is pointing straight and the steering rack is centered get that started first then bolt up hook up lines and tie rod ends, then adjust tie rod ends to get alignment close, you can turn the wheels one at a time with a round file to make a mark on the tire and do both sides then with a tape measure check on the two lines on the wheels front and rear it should be no more than 1/8 towed out in the front if it is more adjust then take it to a alignment shop and get a four wheel alignment.

Litres of oil in power steering system

The average power steering system holds approximately 2 US pints which is a little less than 1 Liter. Be careful not to overfill the system, as seal damage can occur. Best to add a little at a time, or if you have replaced system componets and drained the system completely, put in about 1/2 Liter (1 US pint) , start engine and work steering back and forth several times. Then add a little at a time repeating the process until the correct fluid level on resevoir dipstick has been achieved.

Please vote if this helped! Thanks, Mike

Rear brake lights, rear turn signals inoperable. bulbs replaced and are working, simply not responding to brake or turn signal?

If the third brake light always works, then it is the turn signal switch. If the third brake light does not work, it is probably something else. The turn signal switch is in the steering column. You have to remove the airbag and steering wheel, take out all of the componets and replace the turn signal switch. Special tools are required and a moderate level of mechanical ability. Watch the airbag, it can go off and cause serious injury!!

Steering wheel sticking

Is the unit an active feed back capable unit? If not then I'd look at the steering column bearings. Although the speed at which you are driving should have bearing on the bearing (pun intended).

Steering problems

I think that i have the same problem with my '97 chevy, but i was told by a person that owned a '98 that he replaced the componet that makes the steering stiffer at higher speeds and looser around town. I think that it is located on the steering colum just below the dash but i haven't had time to look into it to be sure. It was like it when i bought it and it has just been getting worse and happens more often.
