tune-up time...read up on basic idle diagnosis in the manual.. everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available in the REFERENCE section...make copies of the right sections...good luck :)
Check your power steering fliud, if it is low this could cause the vibration you are feeling.
A wheel alignment is what syncs your steering wheel with your wheels. It ensures your car will drive straight when your steering wheel isn't turned.
Try changing the ignition switch located on the steering column
Sounds like the idle is set too low. That steering wheel shake is probably from the engine on the verge of quitting because it's idling too slowly with the air on and the car in gear. There might also be a 'fast idle' solenoid associated with air con that is not being activated when the air con is turned on. Turning the air off and trying both drive and reverse will confirm, at least to some extent, that the idle is only too slow when the aircon is on, that is if the jerking steering wheel behavior doesn't occur. Then it's down to a simple idle adjustment, or at worst a look at a fast idle solenoid that may need replacing. With or without the solenoid, adjusting the idle a little faster should make this go away.
it will drive but when in reverse it wont move
Your 4 wheel drive may be engaged. Take out of 4 wheel drive and put it in reverse. Drive the car in reverse while turning the steering wheel all the way from one side to the other until it disengages.
My steering wheel was shakey and worse when I hit my brakes. If this is your situation, it's alright to drive, but you need to have your rotors turned. They tend to warp when they're hot and the water from the rain hits them over a period of time.
It is not illegal to drive without power steering. Many people who drive very old cars do not have power steering.
Worn steering and/or suspension components. Don't drive that fast until you can have the problem repaired, and try to NOT drive very far.
that sounds like your transsion you should have it looked at although you can drive it with out reverse for quite a while
I was hoping someone would ask me that. I have a 96 mark viii - i bought it for $1500 (Awesome condition everything worked perfect.) After about 8 months of racing random cars everyday, the car would shake violently in and out of gears - and eventually drive turned into neutral. You MAY have a linkage problem, but not likely with a mark viii as it is not a common problem. If your car goes into reverse and moves but does not in drive - then your transmission is no good. I did this with mine (found out later that the one i had was not original). Check out question "How to change transmission in mark 8" describes how it is done exactly.
Yes, if you drive with the power steering empty of fluid and the motor locks up, it can actually rip the belt from the motor. You can damage belts and the steering motor if you drive with the power steering empty.
it is very dangerous to drive with a power steering leak. This is because steering can become almost impossible and you could have an accident.
Front wheel drive check cv joints, motor mounts, steering bushings, and bearings, rear wheel drive check motor mounts, universals, drive shaft, bearings, and steering bushings.
With your foot on the brake, put the transmission in drive, then reverse, drive, then reverse. If you hear a clunking noise, think about replacing the U-joint in the drive shaft with a heavy duty unit from NAPA auto parts. Get one that has a grease fitting so you can service it.
As fast as you can drive it in reverse.
if the generated emf in motor is greater than supply voltage means the drive will goes to reverse
Not unless you don't intend on steering.
yes,manual steering will do
my 2000 gose in reverse but not drive
