    what are you reffering to back steering shaft? on that year they only have one steering shaft and it's on the front passenger side and if it broke off it would be in the shop and you would of been in a body bag, what are you saying?

You mean the rear stablizer bar, just go to a junk yard and buy a used one for $75.00 and relace it no big job.

Power steering pump shaft broken again


When you place the wheel in a hard lock position ,the power steering pump relies on the pressure by-pass valve to operate instead of the valves in the steering box to open and allow the pressure to by-pass back to the reservoir.. When you hit hard lock and you hear the motor load up just ease on the turn and the pump will operate as designed. The turn will still be the same -just that the pump is not under full load . Breaking the shaft is a sign of excessive load and a misaligned pulley so check that the belt is directly in line and the pump is square to the belt line.

Pontiac G5. Steering wheel spins freely, wheels don't turn. Is this a U joint issue?


either the steering shaft has broke or the rack and pinion is broke have someone turn the wheel and look under hood near where the steering shaft meets the rack and pinion. do you see it spinning? if so the rack is most likely broke inside. if not the steering shaft may have snapped. hope this helps

No power steering and smoking from hood


[1]the power steering pump might have siezed up causing the belt to slip to burn on the pulley. [2]or the pump broke the shaft internally and some fluid is leaking out and hitting the exaust[3] a hose has sprung a leak and it is spaying oil on the exaust manifold

Two power stearing pumps broke replacing the third now one lasted 1yr other one lasted 3 month both shaft broke why what about hydro boost


theres a mojor problem with these pumps, the shaft fractures it was a defect build call your dealer theres a revised pump to replace these and may be under warranty. they are also paying customer back for repairs.hydro boost also uses a power steering pump, the diffrence is theres no vaccum booster in hydro boost the brakes are power with the power steering pump, next thing is try useing a dealer part and make sure the pulleys are all lined up and replace the pulley on the pump also. hope this helps.

Just wondering if i can tow a ford f-150 with 4 wheel drive and with the front tire off the ground or also known as a car dolly or will it damage my truck????? also wondering about my power steering pump...


1. If you disconnect the transmission , no.
2. Either your steering shaft - relatively cheap and easy to replace - or the steering box - expensive and hard to replace - are at fault. How was your luck lately?
