    I have the same exact problem except mine growls loudly. I think it is just a 4x4 deal. You may need to check your u joints, they may be going bad.

97 RAM 1500 4X4 replaced steering box and some


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.

2000 Dodge Caravan tranmission started making a clicking sound only in 1st gear. Otherwise drives fine. What could be wrong?


you need to have the CV axle shafts checked,the clicking sound is the first sign of a bad one,you need to turn the steering wheel one way sharp wile accelerating,then the other way,so you can determine if left axle or right.

Noise in front wheels of 97 dodge dakota


this is at least one bad wheel bearing, the bearing that is bad will be on the side of the direction you steer that lessens the noise.

97 Jetta GLS - Horn honks when I turn the wheel to the left


sounds like there is something in the wrong place in the horn button. it makes contact when you turn left just as if you had pushed the horn button. i wonder does your airbag light ever come on, i mean not just in the startup sequence, that's normal. probably you need to take the horn button part of the steering wheel apart and get things back in the right place or maybe replace some parts, but because of the airbag being right there too it's not something i would recommend that you do yourself. accidentally setting off an airbag is not a good thing.
