FIVE Signs of a Bad Steering Rack
When the steering rack goes bad it needs to be replaced quickly for
your own safety. But first, you should be sure that the steering
rack is at fault. Look for these five telltale signs before you
take your vehicle in for repairs.
1. Car Wandering
If your car is wandering on the road, both at low speeds and high
speeds, it’s a sign that the steering rack has gone bad. You’ll
need to constantly correct the direction and holding the wheel in
place will take much more work than usual. Sometimes this problem
can be attributed to your wheels being out of alignment, but with a
bad steering rack, the tires will show unusual wear specifically on
the inside or outside of the tire, rather than all over like an
alignment issue will cause.
2. Numb Spot
With a bad steering rack there tends to be a so-called “numb spot”
in the center of the steering mechanism. Between about 11 o’clock
and 1 o’clock there might be little response, a certain indication
that there are steering rack problems.
3. Wheel Shaking
If the steering wheel shakes when moving at higher speeds, coupled
with too much play in the wheel, the steering rack has probably
gone bad and needs to be replaced. Apart from anything else, the
lack of control with a wheel shaking can prove to be dangerous,
especially on freeways when you have a regular commute.
4. Power Steering Fluid Leak
If your power steering fluid levels keep dropping, even after
you’ve topped it off, then it’s time to have the steering rack
looked at and possibly replaced. Check fluid levels regularly and
look for other signs in conjunction with this one so you can be
sure this is a steering rack issue and not just a fluid leak.
Sometimes when this part is going bad, or more specifically if it’s
loose, you can hear a thudding, clunking, or frequently knocking as
you drive. Even if your problem doesn’t turn out to be a steering
rack malfunction, noises like these should always be investigated
by a professional quickly.
Don’t just look for one of these symptoms, as some of these things
can be caused by more than one problem with your vehicle. If you
notice any of these signs, look specifically for some of the others
so you can know for sure that your steering rack is the cause.
