Question about 1992 Jeep Cherokee Sport

2 Answers

POWER STEERING GEAR BOX LEAK, I have a leak on the gear box, which appears to come from where the steering column/shaft enters the gear box. Does anyone know how to repair such a leak, what are procedures, can the DIY repair this type of problem. Or does it require replacing whole unit, with a rebuilt one. Has anyone come across a breakdown manual/schematic for these units. 1992 Jeep Cherokee Sport Inline-6 engine. Thanx, Alfredo Alaniz

Would imagine their is just a oil seal their ,but whats causing the pressure behind the seal to make it leak ,yes i have repaired power steering boxes befoe now but on commercial vehicles 30+years ago ,principle still the same no doubt but i would advise you to get one from a scrapyard so vehicle is usable then when time permits have a play with the old one ,because you may find that its its cheaper to replace than repair with the cost of the spares

I just had the power steering gear box changed in my 1994 Mighty Max. The steering wheel is now cocked to the left. What would be the cause and what would be the fix?


You missed a spline when installing the pitman arm on the steering box. Park the truck straight and remove the arm. with the arm off, unlock steering column and point the steering wheel straight. Lock the steering column. Then reinstall the pitman arm on the steering box carefully matching the splines in the arm to the shaft on the steering box. that should be close to running straight while driving straight.

Steering fluid leak; oil covering steering gear box


if the leak is coming from the steering box there are usually only 3 places it can come from;most common place is the pitman shaft seal,which can be replaced.this is were the pitman arm of the steering connects to the steering box.another place is the steering box input shaft seal,this is were the steering colume connects to the steering box,which can be replace.the last place is the power steering hoses were they connect to the steering box.there are seals that seal the lines when screwed into the box which can also be replaced.so first you need to see exactly were the leak is coming from.rare occasions the steering box is porous which means the box will need replacing.a car of this age should have shown up long ago.you will have to clean the box off at the car wash then run the car and turn the steering wheel all the way to one side,this will build up pressure in the system to show up the leak quicker.

Loud noise in the steering column;gear box replacd recently


Dealer, but did you check the Power steering fluid level??or any leaks. There are two hose that connect to the gear box from the power steering pump. if the pump is low on fluid you lose your power steering, if the hose has a leak or it blew and lost the power steering fluid then you lost your power steering again. 
Check the fluid level to the power steering pump and any leaks or broken hose to the gear box.
Keep me posted, be glad to help and good luck.

How to change inner tie rod ends?


if fluid is flowing out the bellows, you need to replace the steering rack assembly. There is no fluid in the area of the inner tie rod. The seal is just before the tie rod.

Steering Gear
The power rack and pinion steering gear is serviced as a power steering short rack (3L547). The front wheel spindle tie rods (3280) and tie rod ends (3A130) are serviced individually. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • The power rack and pinion steering gear incorporates quick connect fittings for the power steering pressure hose (3A719) and power steering return hose (3A713) that allow the lines to swivel. This is normal and does not indicate loose fittings.
  • If the fittings leak, check to make sure they are tightened to 14-20 Nm (10-14 lb-ft). Do not overtighten.
  • If the leak is not corrected, replace the fitting seals.

Power steering leak on a 1988 full size bronco


The gear box is a common problem on this model. That would be the place I would start. A cheap, temporary fix is to go to your local parts store and ask for Lucas Power Steering Stop-Leak. It will buy you some time.
