Question about 2000 Ford Crown Victoria
I am looking for the name of the part that I need that will allow my steering wheel to control my car. I was on my way to school one day, came to the stop sign, proceeded to make a right turn onto the next street and as I did, the steering wheel spinned completely around and my car started rolling forward. I hit my brakes and stopped before going all the way out into the road. I know that my steering wheel has disconnected completely from my wheels because it wasn't stiff. It spun like the wheel of fortune wheel. My neighbor said that it was a universal joint, Pep Boys in my town told me to purchase a rack and pinion package I looked on the internet and found a part it looks like called a tie rod so I'm confused. What is this part reall called and how much does it set me back?
You're going to have to physically look and see what exactly is broken. The tire-rods are your bars that extend from the steering box, to the wheel. The rack & pinion is the steering box. You may also want to take the steering wheel off, and have the big rod, that extends through your firewall checked, to see if it's that item that broke. Any of these will cause steering failure.
