Car Information:
Mercury Sable
Year: 2001
Engine Size: V6
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
Today after a fill-up, the steering wheel began making a ratcheting noise when it’s turned. I checked the power steering fluid, which is full when hot. What causes this noise?


If the wheel was turned all the way to one side when the clicking was heard its most likely a constant velocity joint going bad on a drive axle.

If this is the case we usually replace the drive axle to cure the problem drive axle installed $250.00
