Signs of Steering Problems

The precise cause of a 1986 Mustang’s steering problem can be difficult to pinpoint. Often, even if we know instinctively that something is wrong, properly diagnosing it can be a long process of trial and error. Some of the most common issues encountered on older vehicles include:

• Alignment problems: Your Mustang should drive straight and not pull to either side while driving. While alignment problems can often be fixed with a few simple adjustments, they may also indicate damage or wear to any of your steering systems components. Poor tire inflation is another common cause.
• Slipping or wandering: A steering wheel that slips or wanders during turning can be the result of a number of issues. Common causes include low steering fluid, loose belts or damage to your ball joints, strut bearings or tie rods, or damage to your steering rack or its mounts.
• Difficulty turning: Issues with your power steering may be caused by low fluid, damage to the power steering pump or by leaking in any part of the steering system.
