This is the PLAY in the steering box and can be adjusted to minimise in the penumatic section.
Tighten the tie rods ends and ccheck for any play in either ends. If not the play is from the steering column to the rack . You can tighten to make it fit closer BUT do not over tighten.
Now start the car and check the movement to either side.
If needs trimming do so , stop engine adjust and try again. Check for fluid in the system.

What would cause me to not be able to get the ignition key to turn?


If you mean the key won't turn at all when you put it in your ignition your steering wheel may be locked, Where you can only wiggle the steering wheel back and forth about an inch. If it is just move the steering wheel to the center of that movement. So if you can't turn the wheel left but it moves to the right about an inch then move it right about half an inch so its not maxed out in either direction

Car has Tilt Steering and has play, you can take the wheel and move it about an inch up, down, left, right. My buddy owns a shop looked at it and said it should be safe. He can't fix it until he comes...


The problem doesn't sound like it's in the tilt mechanism. The tilt mechanism wouldn't cause it to have side to side movement. Chack everything holding the steering column itself.

2 inches @ the steering wheel? i do not recommend tampering with the screw on the gearbox. that is for adjusting the sector shaft, usually only adjusted on high mileage gearboxes. since most of your driving is straight the gearbox worm gear wears out in that position, by adjusting it, it tightens up the gap in the gears the problem comes in when turning because it can be too tight on the ends of the shaft possibly binding up in your gearbox.and no matter what happens next it probably wont be good. try checking the couplings in the steering shaft. with the vehicle off, steering unlocked, have someone move the steering wheel left and right making sure not to move the tires, your looking to see play at all joints, couplings, or pivots. where you see one piece moving and the other not.

Powwer steering out of control


It will probably just sit there when you start the engine, then take off like a rocket when you touch the steering wheel? The wheel will take off in the opposite direction of the way you tried to turn the steering wheel. (you start to turn the wheel to the left and it rips out of your hand and goes right until it slams the full right stop, then rockets back to the left until it hits the full left stop and shoots back to the right again and repeats this process until the engine is shut off.)
If this is the case, you have the hoses from the control valve to the power cylinder reversed.

You need to check all of you front steering components have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth. While you lay on the ground check all joints and components for play then check your steering shaft under the hood see how far steering wheel moves to each directions to when your tires start to move your gearbox has an adjustment on it that can be adjusted it looks like a screw with a nut at the bottom loosen nut a few turns and hold it with a wrench then take screwdriver and turn screw about 1/4 keep checking wheel for play you can tighten to much so keep checking that wheel turns back when you let go if you have any loose joints undernieth replace that part

Steering wheel play


Try reaccomplishing the bleed procedures and that should help your problem!

SYSTEM BLEEDING
  1. Fill the steering pump with fluid. Operate the engine until it reaches normal operating temperature, then stop the engine.
  2. Turn the wheels to the full left and full right position to circulate the fluid. Add fluid to reservoir to maintain full level. Start the engine. Check the fluid level and add if necessary.
  3. Purge the system of air by turning the wheels from side-to-side without going to the full left or right position.
  4. Return the wheels to straight ahead position and operate the engine for 2-3 minutes, then stop the engine. Add fluid necessary. Road test the vehicle.
Please don't forget to rate!!!

Play in the steering wheel column after position adjustment


When they did the alignment it's possible that they used a tool that locks the steering wheel straight while it's on the alignment rack.If they put too much pressure on the wheel when they used the steering wheel seat lock tool it may have stressed you tilt lock mech causing it not to lock where you want it.Hope this helps
