My steering feels loose. Any ideas why?


Thu, Dec 22nd, 2011
Posted in Ask the Expert

The most common causes of steering looseness include worn tie rod ends, a worn idler arm or center link (on vehicles without rack and pinion steering), a worn steering gear or a worn steering rack. WARNING: Don't put off having your steering looked at because a failure of a critical component could cause loss of steering control! The inner and outer tie rod ends should have no perceptible looseness. Worn or loose tie rod ends are especially dangerous because if one pulls apart you'll lose steering control. Worn tie rod ends can also cause rapid tire wear. If you have a rear-wheel drive vehicle with conventional steering (not rack and pinon steering) the idler arm should have no more than the specified amount of maximum play.

If your vehicle has a lot of miles on it, the steering gear or rack itself may be worn. The only cure for a center wear condition is to replace the rack with a new one (an entire new rack assembly). Sometimes the steering will feel loose because of a worn U-joint coupling in the steering column. loose or worn wheel bearings can also make the steering wander and feel loose.
