mini van power steering problem..

Showing 2 out of 2 Posts
Question From mjmiller81 on mini van power steering problem..

We have a 2000 Dodge Carevan, 116,000 Mi, the power steering fluid keeps leaking out somewhere, we go to refill it, and within a week it's bone dry again. Over the last few months it has starting making a sound all the time when you turn the wheel, while turning the corner while driving, or even going really slow, and turning the wheel, the sound, sounds like an old door creeking open, somewhat. We never see a puddle of anything, so where is it going and how can we fix it.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Is fluid full? If not it's going somewhere. Rack and pinions seem to be common on these. It may hold some fluid in bellows of inner tie rod ends for a while without showing up as a drip,

Steering WHeel Slightly Misaligned

Showing 4 out of 4 Posts
Question From zudecke on Steering WHeel Slightly Misaligned

Year of vehicle: 2002
Make of vehicle: BMW Mini Cooper (Auto)
Model of vehicle: Hatchback
Engine size: 1.6 (Petrol)
Mileage/Kilometers: 37k

Hi,

My Mini 2002 has a slight niggling problem in that the steering wheel sits slightly misaligned at about 11.55, as opposed to 12.00 o'clock.

BMW told me that the steering wheel may need to be repositioned and quoted me something like £250.

I have since spoken to independent mechanics/garages and I've got the following responses:

"Could be one of a number of different issues, such as a bent tie rod, wishbone, tracking or incorrect fitting of steering wheel following an incident etc"

And the other is from a garage with dedicated laser alignment bays and they said:
"Should be £29.37 including vat, unless it needs anything more major then you could be looking at £29.37 per camber or caster adjustment."

My question is, what is my worst case scenario? I want to have knowledge of the possible problems that it could be, before walking into a mechanics, blindfolded and potentially getting conned.

Help appreciated, thanks!

Nick

Response From Sidom

I'm just curious if the car has hit something or been in a wreck? As Tom & Z pointed out the suspension does need to be checked 1st and any competent shop will do that.

If nothing has happened to the car and this just started on it's own, one thing did come to mind.

You mentioned "niggling". I'm not sure what you meant exactly but we'll see if this fits. When a tire gets a slight seperation a few things can go on. One, when driving at slow speeds the steering wheel will "rock" back & forth and usually won't be as noticeable at higher speeds. Also you can get a slight pull to one direction or the other. What happens is, while you're driving down the road you have to "cock" the steering wheel to the opposite side to compensate for the pull to make the car go straight..That could account for the wheel being off, if not it could be recentered during the alignment.

We can't see the car online so what the shop tells you is the problem would override this advise. While there are a few bad apples out there like anything in life, in the automotive world, the majority of the shops are honest & hard working.
Knowledge of systems isn't required to get your car repaired. It's not a bad idea because then what they are telling will make more sense.

Response From zmame


You have to bring it in for a 4 wheel alignment $250 seems high. When they do alignment they will check front end. More then likely you've hit something.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

zmame - £250 = Pounds! Last look a while ago that's about 1.5xUS Dollar!

Nick - a slight bit off is still wrong. If nobody has removed steering wheel or steering parts then first check you tires and pressure.

Different tires on front could do that easily.

Basic alignment should include "centering" the wheel on level road. On highly pitched roads any cars would require some adjustment.

If front end parts are all in order, car sits equally level left to right they wheel should be 12 O'clock on level road.

Doesn't take much to throw that off that little. Even just one person vs two equally in vehicle can make that small amount especially in a small car,

steering problem

Question From rib on steering problem

hi there

I hve a Ford ikon and my problem is that i can
turn my stearing wheel 1 3/4 on the left and
1 1/4 on the right... i.e more on right and i
seriously got it noticed wen i was taking my
car out frm a parking lot and a strange voice
came in... and i think it was like my right front
tyre's inner side was rubbing against the fender
splash sheild.im worried... is this gonna screw
my pocket??!!what exactly is this...plz help me..

Response From dmac0923

this is almost a duplicate of my post i had earlier this month.

did you have any front end work done to your vehicle?

in my case when i installed my new steering rack i didnt make sure it was centered before i put it in.

Response From Guest

Thanx Tom and Dmac. im new to this forum and really amazed by this quick response.

And i think Tom ur right that this prob could hve been
there and i didnt noticed earlier... but as far as i know i remember clearly that it was ok and after that alignment scene it happened...

Response From Guest

well actually i had gone for suspension repair in which i had replaced both fender splash sheilds, Tie Rod ends, Axle repair and i think ball joints too... the car moved on smoothly after that. then i think 5 months later i had Wheel alignment procedure and the same day that parking lot scene happened...

Response From Tom Greenleaf

What may have happened was when tie rods were replaced the steering wheel wasn't in straight ahead position and was adjusted at TREs to "center" the wheel and it ended up wrong. It needs to be on known straight ahead position - then center by the adjustment of the tie rods. If something like that happened the directionals probably would not "cancel" as usual too and steering on corners would be funky feeling. The alignment should be re done IMO,

T

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Ok: For however this happened this is what I'd do but a question first...... has anyone removed the steering wheel itself or the shaft going to the gearbox? That would matter.

If you just turn wheel left and right - count total turns, divide and put it in the center. The wheels would be still steering to one direction and not straight ahead. Then, with equal turns on TREs you go in on one, out on other till wheel points straight then it should be on center.

Note: The shaft unseen with steering wheel on has a notch which should be a 12 o'clock. The wheel can be removed and put back on at 1/4 turn off and if centered there it would look right but be wrong - get it?

All that lines up such that when you are really pointing straight ahead the wheel is in that position. If an aftermarket wheel with no particular up down or whatever you need to go by that index mark on the shaft at the steering wheel then adjust TREs to match that,

Response From rib

hmmmmmm... that could be the reason but tom i remember after doing the axle job we drove the car to full left and full right i mean in '8' form and it was going good no axle 'cut cut' sound and nothing, all smooth... and then after couple of months i had that alignment and the problem started. Can that tie rod thing come up after this much time?? i mean if i say that after that front end work things were fine and suddenly it came up... is this possible?? haaaah i was worried abt the rack but thank God its some other shit happening...

Response From Guest

and moreover its a power steering...

Response From Guest

yea steering wheel was once removed after that front end repair by a mechanic due to some noise coming up in the steering wheel on bumps.. he said that the steering wheel shaft upto the pinion had to be replaced due to some torn bushes. I didn't replaced that and its still the same going on. and i didn't understant "TREs" what's this??

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer

Sorry about abr's --- ya - the abreviations or acronyms. TRE means Tie Rod End - sorry for not spelling it out.

Now! When a steering wheel, column, pitman arm are involved they MUST be indexed back to exactly the correct spot. Column would have a rubber or something damper/isolator thing (nice description for lack of proper word) that no doubt can be installed off by 90 or 180 degrees which you are experiencing. There are also mini U-joints in steering shaft/columns to box or rack if that type. Most pitman arms are not a wearing part so I don't remove too many but they too could be installed wrong - would hope they are indexed with larger tooth for one spot only but forget.

Quite simply this needs to go back for a full alignment with all the history so everything can be put in order. Check out the steering wheel vibration problem and time to fix it now if it's a safety issue - it might be. Just by chance I haven't had a column's u-joints, bushings, or that rubber thing need replacement and there are other methods to dampen road feel in shafts different car by car - again just no experience from me as none have been an issue.

You don't have the bazillion $$ alignment machine nor do I so this must go out to any good alignment tech WITH all this info so they know and don't just miss this which would be possible without knowing this history.

Good luck with the fix,

T

Response From Guest

haaaaah ok ur right let me go for a complete allignment and after that i'll let u know what happens and will try to contact a good mechanic for this trouble... and i just wanna thank u sooooooo very much for helping me out and making me understand sooooo many new things :-) U Rock!!
catch u soon till then take care n keep on tighting those bolts!! :-)
bye

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Yup - I can't think of anything but an improper installation or work where some steering part was not put back on in correct position as dmac has said. It may have been like that for a while and you just didn't notice it till recently??
