Customer Question

I blew the engine on my 2103 sorrento and had a salvaged motor installed. Now the power steering is balky. Stiffens up then releases and repeats as you are turning the wheel . My mechanic doesn't know what to do, he tells me he can't figure out how to eliminate the problem

Hi. Sounds like there is a problem with one of the u-joints on the steering shaft. Or perhaps the boot on the body where the steering rack goes into the vehicle may not be seated correctly. I would check those two things first.
