If the steering wheel is turned without the engine running the power steering system gets air in the system causing jerky feel. It'll take a few days of driving it to work the air out of the lines again.

Check the fluid level in the Steeing pump resevoir, and also look for oil drip traces on the ground, underneath the normal parking area at home.

Why is my 1997 Ford Escort steering wheel making a grinding noise when it is turned (it is not power asisted steering)?


There are two bearings in the steering column. One or both may be bad. The most likely problem would be the lower bearing. While someone is turning the steering wheel look under the hood at the bottom of the steering column and see if it is rotating smoothly or kind of jumpy. You might have to place your hand on it to feel if it is smooth or jumpy (make sure the engine is off and the exhaust is not hot).

Flushing is recommended. Have a look at the upper and lower couplings at the steering rod just before the steering rack which could be jammed.

Check the front steering damper. The steering damper is a shock that is mounted horizontaly in the front. The damper is bad if you see oil leaking from it or if the car has high mileage and never been replaced.
