rack & pinion replacement


Asked by Mar 21, 2008 at 09:39 AM about the 2001 Dodge Stratus SE Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Can feel slight popping in steering column when tires are straight and turnining left. While backing out of driveway to the right, some times it's as if no power steering when turning back to left.

1 Answer


Could be several things. Could be your power rack, or it could be one of your inner or outer tie-rod ends. Have it checked by a mechanic before you replace anything. There may even be a problem with the power steering pump but I would guess from your description that it is in the rack or the linkages to the front steering knuckles behind the wheels.
