Hi,


The steering on my Sedona 2.9 03 plate appears vague.



Just coming up to 80k miles.



More noticeable on the straight and motorways, where it appears to wander slightly and requires some more turn of the steering wheel to register at the wheels.



I have checked the tyre pressures and they are at the handbook stated 36psi.



Where do I start and is this a common fault?



Wear in the lower joints or steering rack.



Any ideas.



Thanks for any help.



Rich.

Hi if all tyres and wheels OK, I would have the steering traking checked.

If that OK, would have the front wheel bearings and steering bushings check.

Is the power steering fluid level OK?

Hi, thanks for the reply.


Yes, tyres and wheels all ok as is power steering fluid.



Will get tracking checked, followed by bearings and bushes.



Thanks again.

hi bud also check your track rod ends before you get thetracking done as if they are gone then when you change them you will have to get the tracking done again cheers john.
