How to adjust steering on 1988 plymouth reliant?


if you have too much free play the rack & pinion steering maybe worn out and needs to be replaced as there is no adjustment on these like the older cars. you should check the rag joint as it could be worn. its located at the bottom of the steering colume were it connects to the rack & pinion steering. it looks like a small U joint.

1 Answer

STEERING WHEEL PLAY


There are a few areas in which play can develop. The tie- rod ends and mounts for the rack and pinion can wear out. Also the valving within the rack and pinion can leak fluid within the seals for the rods inside the rack and pinion.

It would be good to have this checked because when the rack and pinion rods are extended, they can sometime jam and fail to retract, leaving you locked in a turn to one side or the other.

Rack and pinion? have play in wheel no sign of leaks new power steering pump installed


Hi Gunny, If your vehicle is fitted with rack and pinion steering also check the rack ends for play. The rack ends are the rods which the tie rod ends screw onto. The other end fits onto the rack of the rack and pinion. To work on those you will need to remove the rubber boots and loosen the locking washer, they can then be loosened with a wrench. If they are worn the play will be evident in the steering. When replacing them also replace the rubber boots. If the boots are worn and road grime and dust enters, you will see leakage from the rack and pinion in the near future. I always thought the Dakota was fitted with a steering box? Regards John

99 Olds alero will only turn to the right. On quick inspection found that the rack and pinion moves with turning the wheels. Is it supposed to?


The whole rack & pinion does NOT move! Only the rod out of either end of it. If the main body, where the hoses connect, is moving the mounting bolts are missing, or broken.

Normally any vehicle with rack & pinion steering, that will not turn left equals a bad rack & pinion.
The "wont turn left" is the classic industry wide indicator that the rack & pinion is worn out.

My toyota camry steering went very stiff


Unless the rack and pinion gears are slipping (jumping a cog), then try putting oil on the universal joint in the steering column just above the rack & pinion. Two mechanics wanted to change the rack & pinion for $900 or the "Yoke" (whatever that is) but a generous squirt of oil on the U jont fixed the problem for my 2002 Camry!

Power steering fluid is leaking from the left side of the Rack & Pinion. Is there a way to repair it without replacing the Rack & Pinion?

Steers as if it has no power steering


you will notice the rack and pinion if it is the trouble because when you steer the steering wheel the end play is very big because the specifide end of a steering wheel is only 25mm (+)or (-) 5mm.

then if the end play of the steering wheel go on the rack end pinion and look for other guy who can steer the steering wheel
so you can see the movement of the rack end pinion, one thing once the rack end pinion has a oil leakage i'm sure that the trouble was at that point but if no of what i have mentioned may be the trouble goes to the oil pump, but you can notice if the problem is on the steering pump it will create a noice ,hard to steer and you can see the oil will have a bubbles
