SOURCE: How to replace Inner Tie rod on 1994 Chrysler Town & Country?

222,000 miles? that's a good vechile so far! anyways, do some price checking. new rack and pinions come with the inner tie rods. so if it's like 50 more for the whole assembly, i would but if not, it's up to you. i've changed some rack and pinions on vechiles that were under 150000 due to major leaking. and if you put just new rods in, if it dose start leaking later, you'll get new inner rods again with new system you'll just be paying labor and alingment charges again. so again, my OPINION is if I'm going to keep it for a while and if it's COST effective, just to do the whole unit.

you need to loosen the clamp on the throttle body and unplug the map sensor then there are two clips on the other end pull that out and you should be able to pull the filter out you don't need to take the box off.

it is sort of a strange deal but you have to remove the cowl and the wiper assembly and access it through there. You can get the step by step instructions from autozone

Looking for a diagram for the hoses on a power steering for a 1998 chrysler Sebring convertable jx with the 2.5l motor


The pressure and return lines connect the pump to the rack and pinion which is what the tie rod ends are connected to.
If the pressure hose is disconnected from the rack, you should have a threaded hole in the rack near the steering shaft with nothing connected to it.
On some models there is a short hose and a pressure sensor in the line that connects to the line to the pump.
Is that what you are talking about ?

Can you adjust thebrack and pinion on a 2000 Sebring?


Hi Jim, What about the rack ends? They also wear out. Chock the wheels and apply the parking brake, jack up the front end and test for play by moving the road wheels left and right by hand. If the play is there remove the rubber boots and check for wear on the rack ends (coming out from the rack) If you see movement from the rack its self the whole unit must be replaced. Regards John

Don't know where the idler arm is on a 1998 chrysler sebring convertible


It doesn't have an idler arm. It has rack and pinion steering. Rack and pinion systems don't use idler arms.

Have a 1998 Chrysler Sebring Convertible - makes a crackling-creaking, sometimes thumping sound, when turning, slowing or stopping. Mechanics even described it as sounding like someone walking on creaking...


Check the front shocks are at the top as a limiter that is poroplast and that wears out and gives you a blow or sound when you turn or when you run the streets desniveladas.Thanks
