The outer part of the tire rod for steering screw came off while I was driving. Now I can't steer at all and my steering wheel is so loose I can turn it in both directions forever. How do I fix this?
If you can't fix it yourself get it towed to a shop and have it repaired. Otherwise replace your tie rods. The parts are a little over $100 for the tie rod kit, and places like Autozone will loan you a pickle fork to assist in getting the old ones off easily (or you can get a tie rod puller). You will still need to get it into a shop for an alignment. As long as you match the new tie rod lengths to the old ones you'll be close enough in alignment to drive it to a shop. Of course there are some guides on doing your own alignment as well, but that's a bit more advanced.
