Customer Question
I can turn left...

I can turn left easily even stopped. But I cannot turn the wheel to the right. It makes a grinding noise. When I am driving, I can turn right so long as there is forward movement assisting the turn.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have power steering? Have you checked the power steering fluid?

Power steering fluid was a tad low, but definitely not empty. Filled it, but no change in condition.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Jeep?

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Grand Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?

Haven't tried to fix it myself. Trying to get a handle on the problem so that, when I take it to a mechanic, I don't get cheated.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's about it for this issue.

Hi, my name is ***** ***** is most likely a bad steering gear, and is easy to diagnose, if they remove each tie rod end at the front wheels, they then need to start it and see if the steering wheel is still hard to turn to the right, if it is, then the steering gear will need to be replaced, if it is easy to turn to the right, then it is going to be a bad ball joint, but that usually will effect it is=n either direction, most likely a bad steering gear,Tim
