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?

Answer:

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
