This could be the problem. When this system came out in the 97's they had a lot of problems with them. Question, does it really get wild steering going down the highway? Owners said it would get really hard to steer then get real loose. Good luck. Normally just when I am stopped trying to back up or park

The difference between a NV7 and a N40 rack and pinion?

NV7 is with Variable Effort Steering. N40 is with Non-Variable Effort Steering. Check the "Service Parts Identification" sticker for your car. Variable Effort Steering will have an electronic control valve on one side of the power steering pump with an electrical connector. The Variable Effort Steering "EVO" valve adjust the amount of power steering assist. It is intended to make the steering stiffer at higher speeds. This helps prevent the vehicle from wandering at highway speeds.

What would cause the power steering on a 3500 dodge 1996 to work in one direction and not the other direction. Replaced the power steering pump and had all the front end rebuilt within the last year.?

The problem with this concern could easily be the steering gear. The power steering pump is responsible for providing fluid pressure but the steering gear will provide steering assist with the fluid pressure depending on steering wheel input. with the front wheels suspended and the engine off with the pittman arm disconnected from the steering gear the wheels turned left to right by hand at the tires should turn with the same effort both ways. if not, the concern is within the suspension (ball joints) or steering someplace. If the steering effort is the same suspect a steering gear fault.

Can you drive a 2001 Chrysler sebring if the power steering pump is bad?

The only dangers that might arise from driving a vehicle with a failing power steering pump is burning up/breaking the belt that is driving the pump IF and ONLY IF the pump seizes up. The other problem you might have is the increased effort to steer the car. As long as the increased effort while driving is not a problem you can at least drive it to a service station to get it repaired.

Why do you need power steering?

Power steering greatly reduces the effort needed to turn the wheels of a car. Especially with front-drive cars, the extra weight and effort can be too much for many drivers. Although not a major concern at highway speeds, low speed turning and manuevering (such as in a parking space) are much easier to do. Most power steering systems provide less and less 'boost' the faster you go.

Manuel steering on a 1983 camaro?

I converted my power steering equipped 84 Firebird to manual steering by using a manual steering box from a Chevy S10 pick-up. It was a simple bolt in replacement. And of course you have to use a shorter accessory drive belt after removing the pump. Steering effort when car is moving is not bad at all. Parking is another story, especially with 245/50 tires!
