    Hi everyone, I have a 2003 TJ 4.0. I was teaching my wife how to drive a manual trans yesterday, which might have been a mistake. She pulled into our driveway and cut the wheel HARD to park. There was an instant cloud of smoke from underneath the front end, and just turning the wheel to...
  2. YJ General Discussion
    I've googled and searched high and low but can't find out how to fix my problem. Picked up my 1990 YJ a couple of months ago, 4.2L running 33s with 2.5" body lift. When the engine is cold, steering is perfect, once it heats up (maybe 15 minutes) the steering is hard at low speed like in a...

    Are the orings in the power steering lines available by themselves or only come with new hoses? I can't find them anywhere.

    I have a 14' wrangler unlimited, completely stock with 40,000 miles. I was driving down the road and made a slight right turn and lost all power steering. It seemed as if I had lost a belt, checked and I had not belt was in tact. As I drove home the power steering was intermittent, came and went...

    Hi, I am new to the forum and have had many Jeeps over the years; Willys, CJ-5, Pickups, Wranglers and Cherokees. I just picked up a 1990 Wrangler that needs some TLC, but has a good frame and mostly straight body. One thing missing is power steering. I have the complete power steering setup...

    Hey Everyone, I am having an issue with the low tire pressure light when I turn on my car. I thought it was just the normal under inflation of a wheel, but as I try to turn the steering wheel, the car itself comes to a halt whether I am in reverse or just driving. When I try and give more...

    So I'm not completely clueless, but I'm in a bit of a pickle. Here's my problem: I have a very stiff steering wheel that only gets slightly softer when I drive it. Rock solid at idle. It's a 1997 Wrangler Sahara 4.0L 6 cyl Automatic Now I recently had a broken power steering pump about a month...

    I've been band-aiding this problem for a couple of months, and I was thinking about taking it to the shop soon to try and get it diagnosed. Just thought I'd get some insight here before doing so. Every few days my fluid overflows out of the reservoir all over the right side of the engine. At...

    I found a 2002 Jeep Wrangler sport 2-door for sale near me. I have been looking for a Wrangler for a while but I am not looking for anything brand new because this is only my second car. They listed it for $5300 but he said that he would take $4700 for it, and it has a leaky power steering box...

    I have a 2001 Wrangler Tj. It was leaking power steering rapidly after a 1000 mile trip. We have replaced the pump, box, and reservoir along with most of the hoses. After this we tried bleeding and keep getting air bubbles when the wheels are turned. We have also tried a vacuum bleeder and...

    Hello, I have a 2003 TJ 4.0 I6. My power steering pump is leaking fluid so it's time for a new one(I replaced the res,and all hoses already). I was wondering what was a good brand to go with. I have 33's and a agr steering box already. I was kinda looking into PSC for a power steering pump but...

    I have searched all over this forum looking for an answer to this issue but I have had no success :(. Yesterday I replaced the old worn out power steering pump that was in the YJ I just bought and the pump works fine but I can't adjust the tension at all so it squeals and skips on the pulley...

    I installed a new power steering pump 2 days ago. I bled the system properly (I think). I used AFT +4. The morning after the repair was very cold. I started the jeep and the steering was very stiff. Could hardly move the wheel. I let it warm up and after a few minutes the steering kicked in...

    working on upgrading to power steering, so far the parts have been easy to get. until i got to buying the pulley and mounting bracket. oem brackets for that year are not for sale, anyone know of a direct fit for a 4.2? the frustration is building.... :atomic:

    Hey, all. So I was expressway driving today and I ran over a small part of curb while merging and immediately after, my steering wheel started turning by itself like 90-180 degrees. I had to fight it to keep it center..then when breaking it veered way off to the right (prob bc I was...

    Hey - I replaced a leaky Pitman Gear box on my 2000 TJ yesterday. After I added new fluid and bled the lines at idle the power steering worked great. Smooth and easy to turn from stop to stop at idle. The steering fluid level is where it should be. When I took the vehicle for a test drive it...

    I've been scouring the internet for answers and have found nothing. I even took my jeep to the dealership and they could not figure it out. Here is the issue. When I start my jeep cold and drive, everything is fine. Nothing is noticeably wrong with the alignment or steering. After about 8 or so...

    My 1997 Sport Wrangler has trouble with the power steering. Driving it and turning the wheel becomes a seriously workout. It works but it very difficult to turn. On the bright side, I got an arm and back workout for the week. I inherited the car from father a year a half ago, and it has...

    Hi Guys, I just picked up a TJ with a 2" lift and 33" BF's. It has a dead spot from 11-1 on the steering wheel. I got under it and had a buddy turn the wheel back and forth in the dead spot. The steering column shaft is moving back and forth, but the pitman arm isn't moving. I assume that the...

    A few days ago, my Wrangler sport began to make a whirring sound when accelerating. My dad and I checked under the hood and noticed a small line or crack in the power steering pulley. I haven't seen anything on WF about a wrangler having a cracked pulley, but I saw it a lot on JeepForum with...
