Steering wheel turn all the way around no control


If your steering wheels turns all the way but your wheels don't:
This would have to be either a broken rack and pinion(steering gear) or the shaft between the rack and pinion and the steering wheel would have to be broken. This would need to be visually inspected to be sure which is the problem.

I would have to guess that your steering wheel is no longer connected to the rack (as opposed to something in the rack breaking). My best guess is that your steering column shaft snapped.

They can be replaced, and the necessary parts are sold, but it's not the easiest thing in the world to replace.

stick your head down under the dash on the driver's side where the brake and gas pedals are, and look up at the steering shaft (can't miss it). Now turn the steering wheel. Does that shaft turn?

Foaming power steering fluid


Sounds like a bad replacement rack.. Did you buy a rebuilt rack? Look up the number for A1 Cardone.. They are in my openion the best rebuilders of rack and pinion.. You can talk to their tech team and they can answer your question.. I have never seen this problem.. i have had racks that the internal valves have went bad and lock up the rack and pump.. Post a comment here and let us know what you find so we will know too.

Power steering fluid leak on my 2000 ford explorer


Most likely the seals on either the pump or the rack and pinion. Could be a leaking hose between the two. Might be a loose or leaking hose connection at the pump or at the rack and pinion. If you lose the fluid in a short period of time it shouldn't be to hard to find the leak, and you are also smelling it burn when it hits the the exhaust pipes. Refill the system and with the engine running have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth while you look at the pump, lines, and at each end of the rack and pinion. you WILL find the leak.

Rack and pinion vibrate badly after installation. starts to vibrate (back and forth motion of the steering wheel of approx 2 inches each way) after trying to move the steering wheel.


The rack is incorrectly installed in the chassis of the truck and its position isn't fixed - it shifts around the securing bolts. The vibration is caused by the pressure of the servo pump and the movement of the pinion: when the rack moves even by a little fraction by itself but the steering wheel doesn't follow it accordingly then the pinion is forced to rotate a tiny bit more than it should and that is enough to open the valves of the servo and the oil pressure presses on the rack moving it all the way to one side with force. When the movement stops because the rack has nowhere to go no more the pinion stops and the valve close, the oil pressure drops, the force on the rack drops and it tends to go back to its original position. That opens the valves again, but in the opposite direction so the rack is slammed on the opposite side. The process continues as long as the steering wheel is turned , generating that vibration.
This is a very dangerous situation, the car is not safe to be driven on any distance, at any speed. Tow it to a repair shop and have the steering mechanism in its entirety inspected, most likely it will be necessary to replace it completely.

I have already changed the belt and the tensioner and again the power steering stopped working the power steering fluid good i was wondering what is wrong now


1st make sure your power steering belt is stiil on@ tight. if so i would suspect a bad steering rack @ pinion. do you hear cracking or popping when you turn the wheel? is there any fluid leaking from under the steering rack under front of car?the steering pump may be air locked, keep turning the wheel back @ forth to see if it loosens up any at all.hope this helps!!

Power steering


Support front wheels off ground. Chock rear tires, get an assistant for safty. Start engine (do not put in gear) step outside of car and manually turn wheels left and right by hand. Cut off engine. Turn key back to release steering lock. Manually turn wheels by hand again. If it requires the same ammount of strength to turn wheels, then Rack and Pinion is bypassing internally. Solution... replace rack & pinion.
