[DML] Re: Pulling to the left and to the right ....steering rack issue?



The most likely cause is play in the steering. This is usually caused
by worn parts. In fact it may not be 1 worn part but the cumulative
affect of many. First of all check the tire pressures. This can have a
huge affect. Next get the car up on jackstands and while an assistant
rocks the steering wheel back and forth look for "lost motion" between
the parts. If you can't do this then get to a garage that does front
end work. There is nothing mysterious here, it is a simple front
suspension. Before condeming the rack you have to check all the other
parts but yes, a worn rack can cause this. Driving like this is
extremly dangerous. You can't stay in your lane and in an emergency
situation you could lose control. A Delorean in good shape has a very
stable and solid steering feel, what you are experiencing is way off
from normal.
