Re: 1999 ranger steering problem

Thats a real easy one. You cannot turn the front wheels on a Ranger with the engine off. It induces air into the power steeering system resulting in a really bad shudder when you turn the wheel. Will make you crazy and you think what the hell broke now.It eventually will bleed out. Take the lid off the power steering reservoir and sitting still turn the steering wheel end to end a bunch of times. Check for proper level of fluid and do not overfill.Very common prob.
