Hard steering


it is probably in your steering rack and pinion, if you have rack on your truack otherwise it is in the steering box, you would be surprised to know how many time the main shaft gets twisted in an accident then causes steering problems

Cant turn my 2003 toyota 4 runner to left or right


with the wheels on the ground, if you pull really hard on the steering wheel will the wheels turn?

Since you already replaced the pump the only thing left is the rack and pinion.

I have a 1997 oldsmobile aurora and the problem is when im going slow or at a complete stop the wheel is very hard to turn to the right but it has no problem whennim driving and never gives me a hard time...


The rack and pinion needs to be replaced to rectify the one side turning easily and the other side not turning so easily. It's like a flapper in the rack and pinion, I think.

There must be enough pressure built up by the power steering pump if it goes easily at a stop when one turns left.

I have a 1999 dodge intrepid, its hard to turn left but it turn rights just fine, what is the problem?


The rack and pinion is bad,the teflon on the cylinder walls of the rack wear off,and it looses pressure,You can try lucas power steering additive ,and it might just fix the problem,if not,replace the rack and pinion to repair the problem.

2003 chevrolet z71 turns easily to the left, difficult to the right. Was told it could be the power steering pump. That did no good.


The trucks like yours have a rack and pinion steering, and when rack and pinion steering need replacing they get hard to turn in one direction just as you have described.

When turning steering wheel to left very hard to turn untill car starts to move, when turn to right works fine


Sounds like the begining of a bad rack n pinion. We can eliminate the pump because the car turns to the right fine. There is no loss of fluid? The only thing left is the rack. It is a fairly commin issue. Use to call it morning sickness, The cars would be hard to turn in the morning or when first started but after running and warming up for a while they would start to work properly.

Steers hard when turning around in the drive or when turning left or right from a stop sign, have replaced the power steering pump, new rack & pinion, new high pressure hose, had car aligned, am completely...


try lucas power steering stop-leak. drain some of the fuild and then pour that in. it is for surging rack & pinions, not just for leaks. if that doesn't work then you may have a defective rebuilt rack.
check power steering pump pressure, might be weak.

Steering


sound like your powersteering pump or steering rack and pinion
could be bad.i would say it is your rack and pinion because if your pump was bad your steering would be real hard to turn instead of being jerky.jerking is usally the sign of a bad rack
