SOURCE: Steering column moves up & down, not the adjuster!

There is mounting brackets that hold the column in place, These brackets are either missing screws/bolts or are worn out and need replacing. Some times these brackets have replaceable plastic shims that wear out. It's also possible that you can place either a plastic or rubber homemade shim into worn brackets to take out the play.

SOURCE: Steering column is loose on 97 sunfire. How can i fix it?

You have a tilt steering wheel! This is a problem with most GM tilt wheels. There is 3 or 4 screws you need to have tightened up; which requires tearing down the steering to get to them and put lock tight on them and tighten them back up, so they will not happen again for a long time.

Steering wheel moves side to side and up and down, there is also a groaning sound when turning corners


It sounds like the steering column bearings are loose or worn out, a full tear-down and inspection is required before any parts are replaced, it may be easier to just buy a good used steering column.

What would cause steering wheel movement up down and side to side on 97 ford f150 tilt column shift steering column?


Slop in the actual steering wheel is a result of either bad bearings, universal joints, or the brackets that hold it together. Take the covers off of the column and you should be able to see what is wrong with it.

Tilt steering wheel on 96 ford f150 pickup is loose and wiggles, need to re tighten, can you tell me the best way to do this?


What happens is that there are 3 or 4 small screw type bolts that come loose down by the tilt mechanism. As time goes on these little bolts get looser and looser and the column moves around more and more. You have to disassemble the column from the top downward to get to these and it's a fairly complicated job as there are a lot of small pieces, switches, and linkages that have to be put back together correctly so it will all work when you are done. I always put thread locker on these small bolts to prevent them from coming loose again. It's a fairly involved procedure to do this job the first few times so if you're not fully comfortable with it I would suggest having a good service facility do it for you. I usually can do one in a little over an hour, depending on how much cleaning I need to do to dirty/sticky column components.

Do you have to pull steering column off to install cable to shift column on 93 Ford F150 XL? and how to do it?


Shifter cable? No. It pops on a nipple under dash. Lay on your back looking up under the dash while moving shifter. Do you see the end moving?

03 supercrew f150 steering


check the steering linkage of the front end for loose components, most can be checked with the vehicle on the ground.
Also , check the Intermediate Steering Shaft for play, this runs between the steering gear box & the lower part of the steering column. it has an expandable section with 2 overlapping shafts that can wear & become loose with age & driving

Key will turn to start in my 1994 K1500


This solution more than likely will require internal steering column inspection.First make sure the entire steering column is not loose.If you can move the steering wheel w/column from side to side or up and down more than 1/2 inch it's loose.Sometimes the key will engage while wiggling the steering column.There are 3 torx bolts deep inside the column that need tightening.Second,the Ignition key cylinder may be bad and need replacing

Shift lever is loose and won't shift


Yes you can repair it your self, check under the dash where the trans cable hooks to the shift lever, where the eye of the cable hooks on there are two screws, if these are loose the truck will still shift but the free play makes slack and the cable will not move all the way. If this piece is not loose you will have to lower the steering column and check this shaft, they are know to split in two and with the column down they are easy to change.

Gear shift assembly


This is a common problem, I had the same issue, mine completely broke off. You can buy the new sleeve with a new rod at the dealer. The replacement is quite simple. You need to remove the upper and lower covers for the steering column, then drop the sterring column with by removing the four bolts. There are four bolts that hold the sleeve in.
