Having problems with your 1998 Chevrolet C1500 ?

Steering wheel jerks when entering into a turn, both left and right.

Answers :

If you mean it wobbles, has anyone replaced the steering center
link? They can be put in backwards on a 2WD. If this is a 4WD and the wheel does that only when turning hard, it is called wrap up and is considered normal if in 4 wheel drive. If it does it all of the time the 4WD may be staying engaged.
This can occur when power steer fluid level low or pump/rack on the way out. Check for 'pink' oil leaks, belt tension on p/steer pump and resevoir fluid level.

There is a noise coming from the right-front wheel area during a left turn. It almost sounds like a tire-rub on the inner wheel-well cover, but it also makes this same noise when stationary while turning the wheel to the left. Is it possible for a power-steering pump to make a groaning sound when the steering wheel is turned in this direction, but not when making a right turn? This noise becomes increasingly loud during cold weather, but diminishes slightly after the car comes up to running t


I had this same problem and the dealer could not reproduce the noise when I would take it in to get looked at. (during the day when the temperature was warm) So I decided to leave it over night and they test drove it in the morning when the temperatu ... 2001 Nissan Altima

I've been told I need to replace my 1999 Maxima's front axles, but it was not "urgent". Upon inspecting my tire treads, I noticed that when I parked, the steering was turned to the left. Upon further inspection, I noticed the left wheel was moderately turned, but the right wheel was almost straight. I backed up and parked turned to the right. This time, the right wheel was way more turned than the left. The left was almost straight. I have an appointment at the garage in 3 days, but is i

Steering problem when turning steering wheel hard right or left as if backing out of a driveway or turning right or left at a corner the car slows down and feels as if the front wheels are going to buckle. never driven hard or hit any jarring potholes that could come to mind that would have damage steering or suspension. tires have about 15000 miles on them and properly inflated. wheels have no play side to side when vehicle is jacked up

My 1996 Dodge Intrepid 3.3L has a gap between the steering. When you turn left, and then turn the wheel back to the right, there is a bout a 10 inch gap in there before the wheel will grab and turn to the right, and same when you turn back to turn left. I checked the fluid, has a good color and amount. Do I have a suspension problem, or what could it be? Do I need to flush the fluid line possibly?

I have a 1974 ford 2000 3 cly. tractor. recently having steering problems. (with manual steering) when turning the steering wheel to the right the stering wheel just spins with no resistance but turing it to the left will preform as normal and turn the tractor to the left. i have disaembled the front end to the point that i have removed the steering shaft with the worm gear and found nothing unusual, good grease and no metal fragments, not sure where to go from here. cant afford an entire gear

Steering Binding I recently noticed after driving my wife?s 2004 Saturn Vue that the steering wheel does not return back to center normally (sticks or holds the position you are turning) when making a left hand turn, turning to the right it is normal and free. I removed the left front tire and disconnected the left outer tie rod to see if the ball joint or strut plate were binding, they moved freely. I did observe a clicking noise coming from the left front, I suspect a CV joint, however the boo
