    What is the cause and solution to fix my steering problem?
    When I get in my car and just turn the wheel right while sitting on my driveway it makes a knocking noise. It does it when I go in reverse and also when I take a sharp turn ( not all the time but enough). Sometimes it does it when I turn the wheel left to, but it ...

    Why does the front end of my car sound like it has a flat tire when it doesn't?
    This sound doesn't happen when I start driving. The sound goes away when I brake. I mainly notice the sound when I'm driving 35-40 mph.

    Why does the front end of my car sound like it has a flat tire when it doesn't?
    It doesn't happen when I first start driving my car nor when I'm braking. Braking actually stops the sound. The speed at which I'm traveling when I hear this sound the most is 35-40 mph.

    How do Core charges?
    So I'm not that knowledgeable about cars and car parts but as I'm shopping for a rack and pinion for my car since the old one has failed, I noticed that auto parts stores charge you a core charge which is refunded to you if you bring the old part in. So the part was ...

      Core charges are customary - the cost for the rebuildable part is refunded when you bring the old part back in to the place of purchase as an exchange. The intent is incentive for the remanufacturer / rebuilder to obtain a used unit to rebuild for the next customer.

      Check these various on-line vendors for the replacement parts; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.RockAuto.com, www.partsgeek.com, to list only a few.
      The rack and pinion steering unit (remanufactured) costs around $219.00 - minus the $75.00 core charge.

    Where is the power steering pump
    Can't locate power steering pump in order to bleed air from the lines. Pump whines when engine is running, louder when its cold outside. Noise never goes away.

      The steering is self-bleeding, no need to bleed the lines or the system. Make sure the fluid level is full and no leaks from any point in the system.

    Where is the power steering pump resevoir
    I believe air is in the lines. Power steering whines when car is running, loudest when engine is cold. I can't locate the steering unit in order to bleed the lines.

    I have an 04 pontiac Grand Prix gt 2. It is making a grinding sound ONLY when in reverse and turning the wheel.
    It's very odd. Car is perfect at any speed in forward and reverse. It only makes the sound when turnin the wheel in reverse. It also feels like it's being put in bind when it happens. I'm thinking wheel bearing, but looking for other ideas. I'm about to go out and ...

    I had the speed sensor replaced in 2012. Now it is looking to need replacing again. Why is the speed sensor going bad ?
    The car's speedometer and tachometer needles go fast and the car jerks like it's not in the correct gear.
