You can start by replacing the ball joints in the front end. This will get rid of most of the play in the steering.

1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4X4 with wayyyy too much play in the steering. Scary play. You have to turn the wheel half way around for the tires to start turning. Is it a front end issue?

Lay under the front end and have someone turn the wheel back and forth. Inspect all the steering linkage components for play in the joints. any play is too much and the fitting should be replaced. It may also be the ball joints. They are located on the steering knuckle at each front wheel.Inspect for play in the same manner

My steering wheel has alot of play in it and I wondered if taking off the dash to fix a blower motor problem could have affected this.

It could. If it is really significant, most likely. Take it back to the shop that did the work and explain your situation. Any respectable business guarentees their work and listens to a customer.

Steering is no longer tight, there seems to be to

At this point, you need to look underneath and check for play while someone works the wheel back and forth. Then, jack up each wheel and put a bar under it and try to lift the tire while someone watches the ball joints for play.All front end components should have very little or no play. Any that do need to be replaced. (that goes for bushings as well)

Our jeep grand cherokee has very "loose" steering. Just a small bump in the road and it's very hard to control the wheel. Our mechanic says he can't find anything to fix, but it seems to be getting worse...

Sounds like you have the beginning of what is fondly called "death wobble"
This condition can be caused by overall play in the steering components (small amounts of play added together = more play than you would want in steering, and loss of wheel control on bumps at speed (usually over 55mph) The major items to look at first art track bar bushings and mounts, ball joints and believe it or not, proper wheel lug torque. Other items are steering box to chassis mounting and wheel alignment. Caster can be adjusted in a more positive direction (beyond factory) which causes the wheels to "want" to remain straight ahead at speed. This can either be done by moving lower control arms or in difficult situations, ball joints are available with built in offset.
Check ALL bushings and pivot ends for any sign of wear, eliminate the items with the largest amount of play first. DO NOT let anyone talk you into replacing the steering stabilizer (sideways shock on the linkage) as a cure...This will cover up the problem for a short time but will not cure it. After the problem has been solved, you should replace that part, because likely it has been beaten to death while the condition was present.

I just bought a 1994 Mercury Sable wagon. The steering wheel has alot of play. What is causing this and how would I fix it?

I can't see it from here, so you need to look over the steering components to find anything with excessive way is to have someone move the wheel back and forth while you watch the steering gear ends to see what's loose.

Loose steering wheel, 1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer (FSJ)

it sounds like all you need to do is as follows, remove the steering wheel and behind it inside the column you will find a couple of screws or bolts that hold the tilt steering assembly together, they have most likely come loose and just need to be retightened , I would recomend that when you have the bolts out that before you reinstall them you put on some kind of thread locker (ie) lock tite. this should solve the problem
