Ignition won't turn when cold outside


Move the steering wheel to relieve tension on the lock, little to the left or right, then it should turn.

2008 pontiac g6 steering wheel removal procedure


1
Turn on your car. Turn the steering wheel so the front tires are pointing directly forward. Turn off your car.
2
  • Pop the hood on your car and disconnect the black and red battery cables from the battery with pliers. By disconnecting the battery you will prevent the airbag and horn from malfunctioning or blowing.
  • 3 Take the center cover off of your steering wheel. There should be four to six screws on the back side of the steering wheel. Unscrew these, then pry the cover off with a flathead screwdriver.
  • 4 Remove the retaining clip on the center of your steering wheel with pliers. Place the correct size socket on the retaining nut, and loosen the nut, unscrewing it one turn.
  • 5 Lie back in the seat and prop your knees under the bottom/sides of the steering wheel. Apply pressure on the back side of the steering wheel with your knees by pushing on your toes.
  • 6 Place the rubber mallet over the retaining nut with your left hand. Apply pressure with your knees. With your right hand, bang on top of the rubber mallet until the steering wheel pops loose.
  • 7
  • Unscrew the retaining nut completely and remove the steering wheel.

    1991 1.8 Fox Steering unusually stiff and squeek when wheel is turned. Alignment was adjusted today but the problem persists


    Hello and welcome to FixYa!

    The problem can be on the power steering pump itself. If the power steering pump is faulty, the power steering fluid does not circulate properly. One good reason why it squeaks when wheel is turned. Check the power steering belt too if they are not sloppy. If it is, adjust the pump to tighten the belt.

    But before doing the power steering pump replacement, please do check the power steering fluid level. You may need to fill it up a little and turn the wheel from left to right. By turning the wheel to the max left and max right, the steering fluid will circulate and may get rid of the problem.

    If the problem still persists after putting on new fluids, go for the power steering pump replacement. Be sure to tighten the power steering belt after replacement.

    Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

    2005 Pontiac G6 wont turn ignition cylinder with key. Tried to move shifter back and forth , pressed brake pedels , emergency brake. Still nothing. I am thinking its a locksmith issue. Any ideas? Thanks.


    Try turning the steering wheel from side to side as you turn the key.I know there isnt really any wiggle room in the steering now,but you don't need to actually move the wheel very far, you are just putting enough weight on the wheel to take the load off of the steering wheel locking mechanism which is in a bind right now.

    Steering does not seem true seems to drift to the left .a little harder to turn right than left. dealer says seems ok to him. i still feel a slight tightness when turning right


    This could be a number of things. To check you would have to disconnect the steering from both wheels with the car up on jack stands. then try turning the steering wheel and each wheel to see which if any feel stiff. Then you would know where to start looking. Also make sure the whole front end and steering system is lubed properly.
