Whats up with the steering in my 96 intrepid?


What are the symptoms?
If the steering pulls to one side, then you probably need an alignment.
If there is a vibration through the steering wheel, it is probably a loose tie rod end.
If you feel a thunk on bumps or hitting the brakes, it is probably a ball joint or track arm bushing.

Does anyone know how to replace the Rack and pinion on a 2000 Dodge Intrepid. I replaced the powersteering pump and it is still doing to same whining and hard steering. I cant afford to take it to the...


Power Rack and Pinion Steering Gear REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 1997 Models
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Disarm the air bag system.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
  4. Transaxle gearshift cable from the shifter lever
  5. Loosen the gearshift cable-to-transaxle mount bolt
  6. Gearshift cable from the transaxle
  7. Throttle cable from the throttle body, if necessary
  8. Throttle cable bracket
  9. Both wiper arm assemblies from the wiper arm pivots
  10. Cowl closure panel and weather-stripping as an assembly from the cowl
  11. Wiper module wiring harness from the vehicle wiring harness
  12. Wiper module assembly from the cowl panel
  13. Air plenum from the throttle body, PCV make up air tube and the idle air control motor. Remove the plenum from the right side of the vehicle through the wiper module area.
  14. Power brake booster vacuum connector at the intake manifold
  15. Turn the front wheels to the full left position. Then, turn the wheels back in the other direction until the roll pin in the lower steering coupler is accessible. Turn the ignition key switch to the LOCK position to keep the steering column from rotating after the coupler is removed from the steering gear. If the steering column shaft rotates beyond the normal number of turns in either direction, the air bag clock spring will be damaged.

    Fig. 2: Steering rack-to-subframe attaching bolt locations — replace mounts if worn 7922bg47.gif

  16. Using paint, mark the steering coupling and steering gear shaft for orientation. Using the correct size punch, remove the roll pin from the steering coupling.
  17. If equipped, remove the pedal travel sensor from the brake booster as follows:
    1. Pump the brake pedal approximately 20 times. This will bleed the vacuum stored in the booster.
    2. Remove the wiring harness connector from the sensor.
    3. Using a small flat-tipped tool, lift the retainer ring from the notch. Then, remove the retaining ring from the grommet.
    4. Remove the pedal travel sensor from the brake booster by carefully pulling it straight out of its mounting grommet. Do not twist the sensor.
  18. Remove or disconnect the following:
  19. Master cylinder from brake booster with the brake lines connected and position aside
  20. Power steering pressure hose and return hose from the power steering gear
  21. Bend back the tie rods-to-steering gear bolt retaining tabs and remove the bolts
  22. Lay the tie rods, bolts and plate as an assembly on the bell housing of the transaxle.
  23. If the rack and pinion steering gear unit being removed is a speed proportional steering gear, disconnect the vehicle wiring harness from the solenoid control module.
  24. Remove or disconnect the following:
  25. 4 bolts attaching the steering gear assembly to the crossmember. Slide the steering gear forward in the vehicle to disengage the steering coupler from the steering gear shaft. After the gear is disengaged, do not rotate the steering gear shaft
  26. Steering gear assembly from the vehicle through the area in the cowl from which the windshield wiper module was previously removed To install:
  27. If a replacement rack is being installed, grasp the shaft of the steering gear and rotate it until the steering gear center take off is in a full left turn position. Install the steering gear into the vehicle through the wiper module opening in the cowl.
  28. If the original gear is being installed, align the paint mark on the steering coupler with the mark on the steering gear shaft and install the steering gear shaft into the steering gear coupler.
  29. If a replacement rack is being installed, the steering gear shaft and steering coupler must be aligned. Rotate the steering gear shaft back from the full left turn position until the master spline on the steering gear shaft is aligned with the master spline on the steering coupler. At this point, install the steering gear into the coupler.
  30. Align the steering gear with the mounting holes in the crossmember and install the bolts. Be sure the brake line routing clip is installed under the left steering gear mounting bracket. Tighten the mounting bolts to 50 ft. lbs. (68 Nm).

you may have bad CV joints. Each halfshaft has an inner and outer cv joint. One halfshaft going to each front wheel. Check to see if the rubber boots are split and all the grease leaked out.
