Loose steering can be worn out tie rods. An alignment shop will be able to do the proper tests to tell you which ones needs to be replaced.

Knocking sound at steering wheel during turning of mistubishi adventure


It sounds like a ball joint is worn, possibly the rack end ball joint or tie rod end.
With the bumpy ride it could also be that the front shock absorber has failed.
Jack the front wheel up on each side in turn, grab the wheel at each side and shake it back and forth as hard as you can. If you hear or feel looseness, the problem is in the steering, as above.
Then shake the wheel while holding it at top and bottom. If you feel looseness then, the problem is in the front suspension wishbones.
Repeat this on the other front wheel. Let it down on the ground, then bounce each front corner up and down as hard as you can (you might have to have a second person with you doing this). If you hear a clunk or feel excessive bounciness, it is the shock absorber. When bouncing like this, the car should resist, and not keep bouncing when you let go.

Lexus LS400 with 80000 miles. Bpught is used and ever since ther steering wheel feels very loose is this the norm maybe im used to driving a van in which the wheel is much tighter? thanx for your help


Hi,
Both your Van and your Lexus have power assist steering. So the "feel"
will be somewhat different. How quickly and easily the "Assist" helps varies. The Lexus is an Luxury car.It is designed to make steering easier.
Less effort needed by you turning the wheel to turn the car. So you were right in your diagnosis. The Van will have a heavier feel.
Enjoy the ride.

Steering wheel feels loose. Took to garage, had


This sounds like you need new track rod ends, this would cause free play in the steering, also it could be the bottom suspension arms. the garage should have checked these though! if the wheel is vibrateing then it may need the wheels rebalanced. if it is that you steering will shake at 60mph

A few days ago my power steering started to get tighter and there is a feeling of something loose is left front. but after initial start no tightness or feeling or something loose just every once in awhile...


Normally when you get tightening at the steering wheel that means that the rack and pinion is failing. A rack and pinion can cause tightening then before you realize it your steering is back to normal. I would have it checked. Good Luck

Steering loose on 1994 chevy 4x4


check the idler arm and pitman arms
a quik and dirty way to check for play in the front end
is to have an assistant rock the steering wheel back and forth while feel an all the joints in the steering gear for play.
there will likely be more than one loose joint.

Rattle steering wheel


Sounds like your intermediate steering shaft. Its the slip shaft that runs thru the firewall. They have a slip-stick condition that makes a horrible rattle that you can feel in the wheel. Its a pretty easy repair. Just make sure the steering wheel dosen't spin while you are changing it.

Good Luck
