Should I be worried? Power steering related
Not sure where to put this but since it is a 4.0 and it's bolted to the engine I put it here. First off I was doing my front brakes on the Xplorer ( I actually cracked a rotor all the way through!) It like the rears was a bi*** and involved lots of hammering and heating up and swearing and I eventually used a puller to get the damn rotors off and if I find out who last did the brakes and didn't use anti seize I will kill him til he's dead!, anywho, Like any other brake job it involved moving the wheel back and forth without the car running for the ease of bolt removal. Now the car shutters when you turn the wheel and the power steering makes a bunch of noise. It has gotten a little better, but it is still there. The fluid level is spot on. I have done this with every ranger, let alone every vehicle I have owned in the past and never had this happen. I am thinking I let some air into the lines some how. Anybody have a solution for this or do I just let it work it self out? Or is it a big coincidence and the power steering chose to go out well the front end was up in the air?
Thanks and have a great day!
