Power steering return line had a pin-hole sized leak. It would leak about a pint of fluid in 10km's
Power steering return line blew apart causing a loss of power steering. Condition of the fluid indicated possible other internal issues so the pump and rack were replaced also.
Yet another set of tie rod ends. This car has had 3 pairs installed since new Swaybar bushings and end links were worn out. Replaced with new aftermarket units. Rear wheel bearings had play. Replaced with new SKF units.
Power steering pressure line split at the crimp by the rack.
Inner tie rod ends loose. Required replacing power steering rack and pinion since inner tie rod ends are not available as a service part.
Upon tire rotation, dealer noticed bad outer right tie rod end. They replaced the tie rod end and aligned the front end at no charge to me.
After I noticed a clunking sound, the dealer replaced BOTH left and right tie rods. This is the second time the right has been replaced. I paid the $100 deductible for the Chrysler Service Contract.
Once again the right tie rod end was bad. My brother (mechanic) replaced it.
Front end clunking over bumps was the problem. Dealer installed Steering Rack because of leak in existing. This DID NOT fix the problem. Looking for mechanical help elsewhere. MK: rack was leaking, so count that aspect as successful.
Mechanic stated we needed 4 new tires due to uneven wear caused by faulty tie rods. Dealership ordered new rack and pinion. A week later we traded the vehicle in for a new car as the warranty was going to expire soon and we don't want to take on all ...
Front wheel bearing on driver's side had to be replaced
