I tried looking everywhere i could before coming on here to ask. But for one, i really didn't know how to wildcard what i was looking for.
This is the story:
My rack boots and tire rod ends and high pressure hose needed to be replaced. Had this lil' shop go ahead and do it. Didn't think it was something that needed special services.
Anywho had the guy get a whole rack and replaced the hose as well. He brought it back to me, and it had a svc engine light and abs light on. I asked em if he had something holding the steering wheel, he said yes, but unfortunately idk. All i know is that the white circular box inside the steering wheel was broke. hence why my controls on the steering would NOT work. eg: Volume, cruise control... So he came back got the car, and replaced it i guess..(FREE) Got the car aligned, and finally drove the car out of town. and noticed, it was starting to get hard to turn RIGHT. By this time i'm already in Austin, so i turned the wheel to the left, and it was cool, but to the RIGHT, required me to use strength.
Drove back to Houston, and noticed while driving straight, mywheel looks like its turned 35-45 degrees to the right. But then i can turn the wheel to switch to left lane and kind of turn it back to the right, and its kind of straight again. Weird part is, im driving straight. So i took it to one of my uncles, who said he assumed it was the PS pump,but because i just had some work done to the car and he said the wheel had wayyyyyyy too much slack in it, theresssss another/bigger problem. Sadly he isn't a Nissan expert, so he couldn't pinpoint it.
So now i go outside, assume wheel is straight, steering is straight. Put 1 hand at 12oclock. Turn it to the right till about 2 Oclock, the tires move a smigget. Smigget meaning, the width of one finger. After that tho, is when the stiffness begins. To the left is no issue..
Can someone please tell me what you think is going wrong
