I had no power steering so I took my car into a repair shop and was told that the steering rack needed to be replaced along with the power steering pump,cost me $500.00 total but now with the wheels straight the steering wheel is actually upside down and there's is a really nasty grinding sound coming from the front end, anyone have any idea's?
Yes, take it back. Any shop that doesn't do a proper alignment after servicing the rack & pinion (or any suspension parts) is questionable. It sounds like they may not have bled the system properly either. I'd be all over the manager/owner of that place.
Monday I'm having the car towed to a shop,different shop the one that did the steering rack is out of business!,hopefully they can figure out why my fuel pump seems to work when it wants to! also gonna have em look over the whole car and see what else they find.I've heard nothing but good things about this shop so i'm not too worried about them half assing like the last place.I have a lot of plans for this car once I can get it running!
got the car back! It's running pretty good but It still needs some minor work like all the fluids replaced, and oil filter and maybe seafoam it! And then i'll start work on the suspension,feels a little mushy! Bur hey for $200.00 I think I got a pretty good deal!
Ok so I found out what the nasty noise from the front end was! I guess when the guy's we"re working the power steering they bent the brake shields,I just pushed the shields back a little and now no noise! But I still need to work on the suspension! i'm getting the clunking noise over bumps and the whole suspension just feels too soft for my liking!
