Oil Filter change on 2002 F-150 two wheel drive


I've learned a little trick I wish to pass on. before you do the oil change. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left then shut off engine. This will move the steering linkage out of the way so you can remove the filter without any problems.

Steering wheel is locked and cant get key to turn in ignition, what can I do?


A lot of times this happens because pressure was held on the steering wheel when the engine was shut off. When the engine is running the power steering pump helps hold the steering wheel in one direction or the other and when you stop the engine that pump pressure stops also so you need to overcome that force while you turn the key. Here's what you do, grab the steering wheel and try to turn it in either direction. It should move freely an inch or so in both directions. If it doesn't then grab it firmly and try to turn it. Left or right. If it feels like it is locked in one direction but turns a little in the other direction then that's the direction you have to rotate it in while at the same time you turn the key on. BTW, what kind of car is it?
Hope this helps.

Having trouble with power steering


power steering pump or piston in the steering rack. with engine not running how far does the steering wheel take to move the wheels, check both ways. if you have one hand at 12 o'clock should move wheels at 2pm. anything after 2pm is a weak steering rack.

Why would turning the steering wheel while cranking engine gets my car to start?


The ignition switch in the column most likely has a break in it. So when you move the steering wheel, it moves the wire so it completes the connection when you turn the key. Have the ignition switch replaced.

Today, after fueling up my car - I went to start the engine and the key wouldn't turn in the ignition, the steering wheel wouldn't move and I couldn't push the brake pedal down. After trying several times...


if you turned the steering wheel after shutting off the engine and the steering wheel caught the lock and tried to turn back it would hold pressure against the ignition lock cylinder. if it happens again try pulling the steering wheel hard one way or the other and turn the key at the same time.

IGNITION AND STEERING LOCKED!


Try pressing the key down little bit while you are trying to turn it towards ignition, at the same time slowly turning the steering wheel clockwise and counter clockwise ( it's locked but it still moves a little bit), it should release the steering wheel lock. hope it helps
p.s please rate the answer if you found it helpful, i need it for my ratings, thanks!

Cannot get key to turn in jeep. Have already driven it numerous times today, suddenly can't move steering wheel or gear shift and key will not turn. Help!


Try turning the steering wheel (hard) right and left while turning the key. Steering lock , and ignition lock work in conjunction with each other.

Electrical sytem? inconsistently shuts car down


These engines have a sensor known as the Crankshaft position sensor, they are most of the time the part that causes these problems, it is located on the front of the engine, it gets it's signal from the crank pulley/harmonic balancer, if it goes open when hot the engine dies, when the sensor cools back down the eng will restart.
