Re: Jerky Steering
Robin, There are a couple things to do and possibly a little more needed info.
Is this an original style powering steering pump? With the car on stands, run
the engine and cycle the wheels from lock to lock a few times. Do you notice
any resistance or jerkiness? Grease the complete steering system, ball joints,
etc. You may have a dry joint or a joint going bad. If you don't notice a
problem with the wheels off the ground, are you running wide front tires
causing extra resistance? How old is the power steering fluid? Unless you very
recently changed it, do so with fresh fluid. Add a small amount of Sea Foam
Trans Tune (or similar) and see if that helps. The problem could be a steering
joint, the pump, steering gear, or tire width.
