#166 of 177 STEERING DRIFTING AT HIGH SPEED
Oct 02, 2010 (10:25 am)
EVO SENSOR BAD
Based on what I have read this has been a problem for since the mid 90's, some post say its not a big deal less than 1 hour labor & $50-60 for the part. Mine 1999 GMC 250, must have the steering column linkage disassembled and the part cost is $80-$90. This was/is not just a problem on truck it is also on a dozens of other vehicles. see link below.

#167 of 177 2000 Silverado Steering & ignition locked
Oct 06, 2010 (6:07 am)
I went to start my truck but the ignition switch was locked and the steering wheel could not be turned to help release the ignition switch. Have tried rocking and pushing on truck to get it out of a bind but with no success. Even tried to shift gear shift but it is locked as well. Truck can't be towed because front wheels are turned and can't get transmission into neutral. Any idea what has happened? It's parked on level ground and front wheels are only turned 1/4 turn.

Try moving the steering wheel either left a or right just a bit... to take the pressure off the lock cylinder to rotate that key. it should work has done it to me before.

#174 of 177 Over heating 94 dodge Dakota 3.9
Aug 27, 2013 (3:49 pm)
Hi. I'm new to the forum and I just purchased a 94 dodge Dakota 3.9 V6 today and as soon as i got home with it and let it idle it ran hot. I was very disappointed to say the least. It's got 175k on it and the original radiator. The heater works and it won't run hot on the road. I'm just wondering if it's the Tstat or pump. I flushed it the best I know how by hooking a Water hose up on the drain plug on bottom of radiator and blew pressure to top until it ran clear. Took a little longer to run hot but sped up when I turned AC on. Does anyone have e a good direction to point me in to fix this. I'm dead broke after spending 2k on truck!! Very upset. Please help. Thank you.

Kathlikos, I think you are in the wrong forum. Anyway, check your radiator fan to make sure it is fully engaging. The clutch on it may be worn out after all this time, resulting in no airflow through the radiator at slow speeds. If you say it is not overheating when driving, then it probably is not your pump. Although if you flushed the coolant, make sure and add some antifreeze back in. You don't want it all water. 50/50 mix is ideal. I'd say it's not your thermostat either, since it does not overheat when driving.
