Steering Gear Box

Showing 3 out of 3 Posts
Question From smcvey on Steering Gear Box

HELP! Don't ask me how (but I do have a 17 year old son) but I need a new steering gear box on my 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 Pickup. I have a friend that would be willing to tackle the job but he isn't sure whether the frame needs to be lifted for this. Anyone know the answer...I can't afford the $500 the shop wants to charge for it. My husband just lost his job and we have very little coming in. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Response From re-tired

Here ya go . We're dying to know how he managed to destroy one.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Ram

  1. Place the wheels in the straight-ahead position.
  2. Disconnect the fluid hoses from the steering gear and cap the lines.
  3. Remove the coupler pinch bolt and slide the shaft off the gear.
  4. Matchmark the pitman shaft and arm and remove the arm.
  5. Remove the steering gear fasteners and remove the gear.
  6. Installation is the reverse of removal.


NOTE The use of new mounting hardware is recommended. Alternately, use a medium strength thread-locking compound on the mounting hardware.
  1. Be sure to tighten all hardware to the proper specification.
  2. After adding fluid, carry out the power steering pump "Initial Operation" procedure.

He's not talking BUT the guy at the shop where I have it showed me where there was something that was bent and rammed into the gear box and when they pulled that out it left a hole. The mechanic said he must have hit something low that bent, whatever it was, and rammed it into the gear box. And I quote, "Mom, I didn't hit anything. I have no idea how that could have happened." WHATEVER! Like I wasn't 17 once. I cracked an oil pan and claimed I had no idea how. Running over a barricade will do that you know. Thanks for your help. I think my friend will be able to do it

1995 Dodge Ram Question

Showing 7 out of 7 Posts
Question From CBMerl on 1995 Dodge Ram Question

Good evening, gentleman.


I've a 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 Pickup. Once I reach to around 70mph, I truck tends to shake. Anything under that, it runs very smoothly. It is not just the engine, but the whole thing. Someone mentioned to me that it was being the tread on my tires were wearing out. That is would end, once they were replaced. I've also heard the fuel filter needs to be replaced. But was told by a mechanic since the filter is attached to the fuel pump, than the whole pump needs to be changed out.

I was wondering if I could get a second opinion on this.



Thank you to all who respond to this topic.

Response From Hammer Time

The fuel filters in those are not supposed to ever require service.

Response From re-tired

The key word here is SUPPOSED . Wish I had a $100.00 for every one of those lifetime filters I changed . Come to think of it I do.

Response From Hammer Time

I have never seen that filter cause any kind of driveability problems and Chrysler doesn't recommend changing them for maintenance reasons.

Response From re-tired

I guess its just luck of the draw . To be honest ,the majority of the tme it wasnt the filters fault . Ive had 3or4 with unkown substance in tank, one of which was sugar , guess he made someone mad. A couple with pump failure , cutomers wanted everything in tank changed . And there was a few that were resticted , as i recall one guy drove on dirt roads with rag in tank . yea he had a check eng lite but did not care until power suffered. So in a nutshell I suppose your statement is correct.

Response From CBMerl Top Rated Answer

Thanks alot, gents.


I suppose I can get the tires changed and rotated/aligned and see how that goes. Since my filter is SUPPOSED never require service.


Appreciate the advice.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Guess: Large tires and wheels need be tended to often! Make a habit of noting rotation of tires and with trucks and especially if a 4X4 like every 3,000 miles. Simple front to back and then crosed the next time. If tires or wheels are messed up the only answer I know of is new stuff. BTW - 70 MPH for a truck is enough!
