it could be the front axle u-joint binding up. i had the same problem, and that's what it was. i put greaseable u-joints on both sides.

SOURCE: Steering wheel

This one hits home. They usually start honking the horn randomly as well. There are a ton of covers to remove under dash then you follow the steering shaft to 3 sets of bolts that bolt the shaft in to wings off the sides. Once you remove these bolts the steering column will pretty much fall on your head. Watch out for that. It hurts. There's going to be a few plugs to unplug from the harness and remove the small string that connects the shift indicator, watch out this one breaks easy. I would suggest disconnecting the negative battery cable before you start this process because you may shock yourself or accidently explode the airbag. Hope this helps, be careful and good luck! Oh by the way, let me know how this turns out for you. I'll be checking in from time to time.

SOURCE: 1987 Ford Ranger stuck in 4 wheel drive!!

Chances are the linkage for the transfer case is out of adjustment try loosening the adjuster bolt and put the 4WD shifter into the position 4WD high or low (depending upon which position it's lockup in) then lock down the adjuster bolt, try to shift out of 4wd sometimes you need to go forward and backward with the vehicle to get it out of 4wd, when you get it out of 4wd you may have to fine tune the adjustment to get it to engage and disengage smoothly it's a trial and error thing keep resetting adjuster until you get the desired effect.

I have a F250 lariat with a 460 - truck stalls when I put it in gear - even after it runs for 20 min. Sometimes it will stall while I'm driving. I had carborator replaced last year. Hope you can help.


Some possible causes could be:

Vacuum leaks cause an engine to run lean witch can cause the vehicle to stall when put into gear.

Improper base idle adjustment can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

A malfunctioning or damaged carburetor can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

Improper ignition timing can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse.

A malfunctioning or damaged transmission or torque converter can cause the vehicle to stall when shifted into drive or reverse

2003 ford f250 super duty 7.3ltr I switch it from 4 wheel drive back to 2 wheel and it blows number 45 fuse. Also sometimes when i go from park to reverse it blows the same fuse.


Hi,
The wiring from your overdrive cancel (or tow/haul) switch is shorting in your steering column. Remove the plastic trim from around the steering column. From above the steering column look in the area where the gear shift meets the column. You will see a pair of wires (twisted) wrapped in a black tube. Examine these wires really closely and I am sure you will find an area where they have rubbed thru. Wrap a little electrical tape tightly around the area and you are good to go. To get the top plastic piece off of the column you may need to remove the ignition key cylinder. turn the key to the run position. Under the cylinder on the column is a small hole. Push a pick into the hole while you wiggle and pull outward on the key cylinder. The cylinder should pull out and allow you to remove the plastic trim. The cylinder must be in the run position when you reinstall it too.
I hope I was descriptive enough. I hope this helps you out!

Horn fuses all good but when i push button i don't have any horn or even hear relay. this all started after i had new bushing installed in steering wheel. Could the wires behind the wheel have been cut ?


Do you mean you had new bearings put in the top of the steering wheel column ? Do you have a tilt feature or a tilt / travel feature? Regardless, yes, the wire could have been cut, but I would suspect a poor connection in the slip ring or the horn pad connector was just not connected to the connector at the slip ring when it was put back together. Do you have cruise control switches on your steering wheel ? If so , I would pull steering wheel and check the slip ring connections first.

there may be an adjustment screw on top of the gear box,the problem is all it really does is makes the steering wheel harder to turn.if you do try it then do only 1/2 turn..if you go too tight then the gears wont mesh right

1997 ford f250 steering problem


Check the tie rod, tie rod ends, and ball joints for excessive play. Jack up the front on either side and have a helper push and pull on the top or bottom of the tire. Watch the area where the hub pivots on the axle. if both sides check out. with the truck on the ground, have the helper turn the steeribg wheel back and forth about a half turn with the key off. Look for loose outer tie rod ends, and inner tie rod ends.
F-250 4x4 steering componants are pretty basic, If your unsure what to look for then take it to someone that knows how to fix it. Correctly. If you replaced any of the joints. It would be in your best interest to get it alighned.
