How to take away the play out of power steering gearbox

In some instance you can adjust the play in the steering box, there is a external bolt with a locking nut on it, I think wind it in a little at a time and check the steering when you do, don't adjust to far as then you won't be able to steer it properly, hope this helps

I have a 1990 fotd ranger having steering problem when making turn it wants to keep going that way have to tug steering wheel back to straighen it out could steering box be the problem?

Could be the box. Something is awful loose, or binding to keep it from returning easily. Raise and support the front end, and watch the steering parts' movements as someone turns the wheels from left to right. Maybe you can spot the problem. Are any of the rods or linkages bent, like from an impact? If it has a damper rod (looks kind of like a shock absorber), does it move smoothly? If you can't see a problem in the linkage, then it very well could be the steering box.
Good luck.

There's too much play in the steering wheel of my 94 chevy silverado. How do I fix it?

play in the steering wheel for that truck is more than likely caused by worn tie rod ends, and sometimes ball joints. The steering box is least likely to give you problems, unless it had bolts come loose. Check out the tie rod ends first; with the vehicle off, have someone else turn the steering wheel from left to right within that free zone, and look at the joints in the steering linkage. If you see one half of the joint moving more than the other half, you know it need replaced. If you have more questions, or if you need more help, feel free to post a comment, and I'll check up on it so you aren't left hanging.

I have been told that my 98 Dodge truck which has 56,000 miles needs a new steering gear box. Steering wheel has about 2 to 3 inches of slack. Have put on a track bar and a tie rod for 700 bucks and still...

The gear boxes are just cheaply designed and made, its a very very common problem with these Dodge's. Even the new ones experience whats called the "death wobble", where the truck will all of a sudden veer left or right. The most common things ive replaced on these trucks to cure it is the track bar, and the gear box. $500 sounds about right for a new one, they arent very cheap.

Car steering problems

You're going to have to physically look and see what exactly is broken. The tire-rods are your bars that extend from the steering box, to the wheel. The rack & pinion is the steering box. You may also want to take the steering wheel off, and have the big rod, that extends through your firewall checked, to see if it's that item that broke. Any of these will cause steering failure.
