    I have a question, and i need all the advice i could get!!!!!!
    I have a 93 Civic SI 5spd. My steering is really tight in the sense fo when im making a turn (left or right) its really hard either way.(this car is has power steering). I recently changed the power steering pump and replace the rack and drain the fluid. When the i drive for long periods of time, the steering gets ALITTLE looser but still hard. When its cold outside i get a squeak from the steering colum turning left or right!!! Please can ANYONE HELP ME...THIS IS DRIVING ME UP THE WALL....CANT CONTROL THE CAR AS HOW I WANT TO....


    THANX,
    JAZZY JAY

    ok this might now apply to power steering cars, but the squeaky sound on my car was the steering gear box inside were the rack goes. I just found a used rack and replaced it with another.

    What would cause the rack to malfunction???? I changed the rack 4 months ago!!!! Could that new rack go bad also in such short time. Or could the problem be something else?????? :huh:
