SOURCE: Trans problem

Sounds like either your Transaxle has a problem (Would need to go to a transmission shop) , I assume it is Front Wheel Drive, or you need to check your CV Joints. If it is rear wheel drive check the U-Joint at the back of the transmission. If the joints are good you need to take the vehicle to a service shop and have the transmission repaired.

SOURCE: How do I R&R front motor mounts on 2000 cadillac sts

Very easy, just remove front tires and unbolt, BUT I doubt you are asking right question. Not mounts, but mount in dead front center is problem. There are 4 mounts, transmission center back, left center and right center and front center. That takes full torque of motor and heat from exhaust. GM has a shield for exhaust.

Ok, bank 2 sensor 1 is the front one upstream sensor.--------- It's between the engine and the fire wall. it's pre catalitic converter. There is very little room. It's best to see and work on from drivers side fender.
Bank 2 Sensor 1 is on the driver side - follow the right side of the engine down the headers which attaches to the catalytic converter. The o2 Sensor you're asking about (Bank 2 Sensor 1) is before the Catalytic. The o2 Sensor after the Catalytic is Bank 2 Sensor 2. Bank 1 Sensor 1 is on the passenger side as well as Bank 1 Sensor 2.---------- --------- Approx cost for sensor only is near to 40$ and for replacing service charge by the mechanic will be more.--------The total cost will be under $100.------ To order the sensor, click the link below:-- --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

SOURCE: I am leaking power steering fluid do I need the cylinoid replaced on the racket pinion steering

If there are any rack leaks it has to be replaced

Pull back the inner tie rod boot & check for leaking

Obviously any sensor or switch that leaks or hose, you
just replace that

We can not see the the issue from the internet,sorry

Leakage in racket pin

If your rack and pinion steering unit is leaking power steering fluid, you most likely have blown a seal in the unit. These are gennerally non-repaiable. Replace the rack and pinion unit. Not an easy job, but an intermediate knowledge home mechanic can do it.

I need a price for a racket pinion for a 2003 Mercury Sable.

Check the NAPA website or other parts store
sites, as well as your local store. Call them

I get $164.00 & CORE 138.90
kind of odd
May add up to $302 which is about what I was recalling
from when I had a trans shop

I had someone install a racket pinion on my 92 chrysler lebaron an the steering wheel is up side down an it makes a popping nosie when u turn and it shakes real bad what seems to b the problem

The rack and pinion was not aligned and installed properly that is why the steering wheel is upside-down, and it might not even be secured in the vehicle correctly and the safety of your vehicle is now seriously in question. The rack and pinion should be inspected by someone who really knows what they are doing to be sure that it is properly mounted and tightened down in the vehicle, and if the tie rod ends were not properly measured out and the lengths matched with that of the old unit then the vehicle will need to have the front end aligned to stabilize the vehicle.

Racket pinion steering power steering fluid

This is a very common issue with this car.The problem of the Ford Taurus spewing powersteering fluid out of the cap is caused by a loose nut on the passenger side of the steering rack. This not only allows fluid to leak past and fill the rubber boots up on the tie rods/steering rack, (the right hand side fills too, because of an air vent equalizer tube that connects both sides), but it also allows the system to **** air which causes the foaming and spewing from the pumps cap/dip stick.

The cure is to jack up and secure the car, remove the passenger front wheel.
There is a rubber accordian style boot on the tie rod end. Use a super long flat screwdriver to pry under the far side clamp that secures it to the inner part of the rack and break it off. Now use a pliers to squeeze the smaller clamp on the side closest to you and slide it off and all the way to the end towards you.

Slide the whole rubber boot as far as you can towards you so you can see the large round nut that is inside the end of the rack. You'll know this is the problem when fluid pours out of the boot.
The tie rod goes through the center of this nut. The nut has four holes around it on the face of it. I assume they used a spanner tool to install this at the factory, but there's no room for a tool while the rack is on the car, so you'll have to manufacture a long instrument yourself.
I purchased about a 3 foot long narrow metal rod from a hardware store, then I used an angle grinder to shape one end of it into a blunt cone shape that would fit into one of the holes. It's awkward to do, but using it on all angles avoiding the brake line and wheel rotor you can tighten this nut by hitting the rod with a hammer. The nut will turn about 1/8th of a turn, then re-angle your rod into the next hole above the one you just did tightening the nut to the right (clockwise).

The nut on my car was loose by three full turns. The driver's side of the rack has a different setup, you don't need to try that side, the passenger side is the only side that is affected. Once you have this nut good and tight, I used a zip tie to clamp the big end of the rubber boot back on the rack, then pushed the rest of the accordian boot back into it's original place and put the smaller compression clamp back on the end closest to you.

Put your wheel back on, fill your ps pump back up with fluid and start the car, turning the wheel back and forth to purge the air from the system. It'll still be foamy for a while, but keep shutting the car off, let the bubbles disperse, add more fluid if needed, etc.
I learned this from another forum where many, many posters had tried this and it worked for them also.
Good luck!

Power steering failures on a 2007 chevy hhr while driving.

This is a known problem with the power steering which will probably require replacement of the power steering motor. The HHR uses an electric 12V DC motor to provide the power steering force, and they have started failing.

GM is recalling the Cobalt and other vehicles for this issue, but not yet the HHR. If you are out of warranty, you will probably be personally responsible for the cost of diagnostics and replacement.

You will probably need to contact your dealer unless you are able to replace the motor yourself. Sorry.

Power steering quits after warmup

When the pump heats up it will quit working cause the pump on the inside is not pumping fluid to the rack pinion or your racket pinion is going bad. Have you checked the fluid level?

My car starts to shake after about 35-45 mph

rack and pinion is the steering wheel joint, so if the steering wheel shakes or handling has decreased, then i would say it is the rp. , also check the wear on the tires for uneven wear, it could be alignment, does the steering pull to one side? it could be motor mounts just find the bolts and check em wiht a torque wrench, also inspect mounting bushings as well. to check trans. give it alot of gas to get past 35-45 mph and the shaking should go away at higher speeds, if it doesnt then its the trans missing "third".
