Lift the front of the car and remove the front wheels. Check all rubber bushings and linkages. Compare each side with each other. Check the steering control arms and the ball joints for any play. Check the rack is securely mounted. Swing the steering from full lock to left, inspect everything and then full lock to the right with full inspection. Check your power steering for any leaks etc.

I have a Honda gx160 on my son's go kart. He can ride all day long as long as he only makes left hand turns shuts off on right turns but starts right back up.oil and coil wire fine. Any suggestions?


Check out the steering mechanism to see if something is hitting an electrical connection when you make the
right hand turn. Ditto for the fuel line.

Maybe the kid is pulling so many g's on the right hand turns that the fuel is not reaching the carb normally - LOL!

Everytime i turn the steering wheel i hear a loud clunking noise, i know its not the strut mounts, i know both tie rod ends are brand new within the past year plus they dont make a clunking noise like...


clunking noise may be bad steering rack. either the bolts that hold it to the frame may have worked loose,the center of your vehicle is where the steering racks located,just under the center of floorboard.under dash but on floorboard.make sense? try turning the steering wheel with engine running,place your hand under the radio,but on floorboard,when you turn the steering wheel from side to side,do you feel a thump? if so,then your steering racks loose or bad. the only way to know for sure is to have someone who knows about the steering rack to inspect it visually. thank you for choosing fixya.com

The Power steering is stiff when your making your turns (to the right or left). And also whenever you make a right turn the steer does not correct itself.


First, when diagnosing any suspension steering stuff a good place to start looking is to see if you have any loose or worn parts in the front end of car.,

Jack each tire off ground, give it a pull up and down, and side to side and see if there is any clunking or any excessive play side to side or up or down. If there is, have a friend repeat the movements and look with at the ball joints, tie rod ends, and struts.
Check for wetness around the tie rods. This could mean you have a steering rack issue. Next, check fluid level and color in power steering resevoir under hood. If dirty have this flushed.

Hope this points you in the right direction. Good luck!

Power steering


the power steering reservoir on this car is on the passenger side, back of the motor, far down. you will see a small cap with a picture of a white steering wheel. keep looking, it's difficult to see but it is there!
as for the noise, my first suspicions would either be upper strut bearings, or possible a lower control arm bushing pulling out of place. failing those, could be a seizing tie rod end or ball joint. very unlikely, but not to be ruled out, is the intermediate steering shaft (what connects your steering wheel to the steering rack). a mechanic with a good knowledge in suspension diagnosis should be able to pick off your problem. if you wish to continue diagnosing yourself, a mechanics stethascope can be very useful to hear wear the steering linkage is binding. good luck!

Clunk sound when turning left in 2005 Chev Malibu


I have 3 2005 Malibus - 1 Maxx LT, 1 Sedan LT, and 1 Sedan LS. All three needed to have the steering rod replaced by 50K miles. You'd feel a muted clunk through the wheel when turning. The other light clunk issue I had with the Maxx was I hit a parking curb and it broke the lower radiator bracket. In certain bumps you'd feel a light clunk. A new $22 bracket fixed the issue and now I make sure I never pull too far into the spaces in the garage at work.

2003 Dodge Caravan Front end clunk.


Had similar problem with 2003 Dodge GC. Replaced the parts you mention + rack & pinion, then to fix the now noticable whining noise, replaced power steering pump and pulley. Fortunately was under an extended warrentee at 46k miles.
