I believe there is an issue with a power steering line that leaks and then all air needs to purged from the system. But if the vehicle does not have a p/s rack, then you probably have something loose in the front end, like an idler arm. This could be a major safety issue. Have your front end inspected.

1. You might wanna take a look at your brake system, brake disk and pads.

2. The steering rack must have gone bad though it might just be the packing rubbers that are worn; or

3. The tie-rods must have been loose.

Cheers and do rate this solution.

My 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee loses power and stalls when going up a steep hill on the freeway. It also several times the steering wheel has violently shaken when I hit a bump in the road. It almost felt...


You have two unrelated problems. the power loss can be from a variety of things. What you first need to do with that is have a scan done (many parts stores do that free)...then if you have codes stored, you at least have some direction to go in with that.
The shaking is called death wobble and also has many causes. The most common are bad ball joints or tires that are worn sufficiently so as to not have enough foreward momentum to not react to side loading from bumps. The same tire can still generally pass inspection but is no longer useful on your vehicle (usually with around two thirty seconds of remaining tread measured at the wear bars). Any wear in any of the front end steering components or bushings can also cause wobble...sometimes it is a cumulative effect of slight wear in several places totaling an unacceptable amount of overall play. If you just had brake work or new tires installed, sometimes improper torquing of the wheels can also cause that. If you don't see anything obvious have an experienced jeep tech look at it. It can be dangerous and is nothing to ignore or wait on.

Front wheels shake when I hit a bump in road


Pitman arm and tie rod ends and bail joints.The three main causes of front end shake after hitting a bump.There's so much slop that when you hit a bump it shakes violently from one end of the slop to the other.Very dangerous!You need to get this fixed now!
Get someone to turn the steering wheel while holding onto a front wheel and just watch for stuff that moves.Turn left and right and you'll see what's the worst for wear.The connections at the steering box arm(Pitman) and at the wheels(Tie rods) will be what moves the worst.Hope this helps?Autozone has a kit for the pitman for $100,probably be $600 at a shop.

The front of my car feels like its going to fall apart, makes a horriable clicking noise when i hit a bump or turn, car shakes, and i can feel viberation on the gas peddle when driving.


This sounds like a broken or loose motor mount. Has any work been done recently on the van? I am wondering if someone did not properly tighten or attach an engine or transmission mount. Turning or hitting a bump could cause the engine to shift if not secured at the mounts, resulting in the symptoms you describe. Carefully check around the fan at the front of the van (off, NOT running) for evidence of contact being made with the fan shroud or anything else nearby. The noise you hear could be the fan making contact with something when the motor moves when turning or going over a bump. The other possibility would be a bad axle, but that is usually evident when turning, not going over a bump. Have this checked asap, as it sounds like it is dangerous to drive, and can cause more damage if not repaired. Let me know what you find. Good luck.

Front end wobble at 50 mph or when I hit a bump or pot hole in my 2005 Wrangler


Your tie rod nut needs tightning, the extra play causes the front end to vibrate or wobble your vehicle and sterring wheel.

look under the car where your steering wheel gear box connects to the tie rod, see if the nut and carter key have slop in it.

if so, take the carter key out and tighten the nut and then replace the carter key as it was.

the test it on some bumps and potholes.

Steering wheel shakes when i hit bumps


Bad shocks will cause the front jump around. Also check the tires for uneven wear.
The entire front end should be looked over if the shocks are bad you may also have other parts worn as well.

The front end and steering wheel shakes when i hit a hole or bump


This usually indicates a problem with the suspension components. Check for play in front end suspension, 1st thing I would check would be the steering damper, it's often overlooked, and could be the cause. If that checks out ok, jack up and check for play in wheels, which could be caused by worn ball joints, tie rod ends, wheel bearings. A lot of possibilities, generally play in any components can trigger the shaking you're experiencing when hitting a pot hole or bump. Good luck!
