The most common reason for power steer failure is fluid leaks. On power steering pump, you should check behind p/s pulley for leak at the shaft. On the rack and pinion(steering gear) check rubber boots at both ends and check for leaks where steering shaft is connected to rack and pinion input shaft. Check pressure hose at crimp fittings for leaks.

Most likely cause is that the intermediate steering shaft has a bad Joint(s). Replace the steering shaft and you'll be good to go. This shaft is connected to the steering gear box on one end and the steering colum at the other.

no, the intermediate steering shaft is completely independent of the power steering fluid operation. Make sure that when you remove the shaft, you DO NOT move the steering wheel. The clockspring inside the wheel is very easily damaged. no, I don't see why.

What if your 1998 town cars has troubles with the steering wheel it spins freely and the wheels will not turn What is the fix for this problem?

If the steering wheel spins freely but the wheels don't turn, the steering shaft (which runs from the steering wheel, into the engine compartment, and down to the steering box) probably came apart. Usually there are one or more joints in the steering shaft, to allow it to angle around obstructions in the engine compartment. It may be that the shaft separated from one of these joints. Find the steering shaft in the engine compartment and see if it's continuous all the way down to the steering box. Also see if when you turn the steering wheel, if the shaft turns also. If it doesn't, then there's a problem with the steering wheel's mounting to the shaft. At the steering wheel, the shaft is usually cut with a bunch of little notches, which the steering wheel hub slides onto. If these notches have gotten stripped, then the hub has nothing to grip, and the wheel will spin free without moving the steering shaft.

Explain why large trucks have bigger steering wheels than small trucks or cars?

The rotation of the steering shaft drives the turning of the wheels, and buses and large trucks have wheels which are significantly more massive than cars' and light trucks', requiring more torque on the steering shaft to turn the wheels. The larger steering wheel gives a mechanical advantage in turning the steering shaft; a longer moment-arm from the application of force by the driver on the steering wheel results in a larger torque on the steering shaft from the same force applied.
