Q: Steering slipping

asked by on

The steering is slipping.

Hi there. I’m unsure of the problem you are describing. If it has to do with your steering not reacting to you turning the wheel, then you may have a problem with your rack and pinion. Also, your steering contains gears that become worn over time and would need to be inspected as well. I’d suggest having a certified mechanic sent by YourMechanic come to your home or office to correctly diagnose your steering issue more precisely in person.
