Question about 1997 Cadillac Seville

1 Answer

Stiff steering, My steering is very stiff when turning left. It is easy going to the right. Also when I jack the car the wheels trun smoothly in both directions. Does this sound like a bad rack and pinion or pump?

After taking a turn at the light my steering wheel went so stiff I couldn't even turn the wheel. What happened and how do I fix it?


hi Justine.
There some moments when the steering wheelbecomes stiff and hard to turn. From irregular servicing, lack of fluid oil to low tyre pressure or bad wheelalignment, any of these could be the cause. ... Under normal circumstances when the car is in good condition, the steering wheel is always flexible when turning.11 Sep 2014

ball joint has gone or could even be the wheel bearing. jack up the front with wheel on and hand on wheel 9 to 3 and wiggle and then 12 to 6 do the same if there is alot of movement the bearing has gone. ball joint check all the connectors on that side steering etc if they move side to side easy then the ball joint has gone they should be stiff to move.

05 rx8 steering is stiff


You do not have the proper test equipment, repair manuals and training required to test the electric steering, any suggestion would require you buy a complete steering gear, a very expensive part that may or may not fix the problem, your money would be better spent at the dealer.

My steering wheel is really sticky when im making turns i throught it needed power steering fluid but that wasn't the case. Can anybody tell me what could it be?


Its the steering arm, under the hood drivers side, it connects the steering column shaft to the steering gear box. The small universals get really rusty. causes it to bind. don't try to lube them it doesn't work. About $50.00 from ford.

Steering does not seem true seems to drift to the left .a little harder to turn right than left. dealer says seems ok to him. i still feel a slight tightness when turning right


This could be a number of things. To check you would have to disconnect the steering from both wheels with the car up on jack stands. then try turning the steering wheel and each wheel to see which if any feel stiff. Then you would know where to start looking. Also make sure the whole front end and steering system is lubed properly.

2004 chev silverado ext cab. No Power steering


Hi Hollings,

You description was very good, I need to ask for a specific.

When you turn to the left, the wheel is stiff like the engine is off or does it turn smoothly but the vehicle doesn't turn or seem to respond.

I'm trying to rule out broken mounts,

Also, if the wheel is all the way to the right, is it difficult turning back to the left the whole way, or half way. See where I'm going.?

Please comment back your findings

Best regards
Mike
