97 Steering Speed Sensor Replacement


2018GMC

Question

Hi all,

My mom's 97 Silverado 1/2 ton is having the common steering sensor problem again. Pressure changes when driving down the highway and chunky low speed turns. Can anyone give me some do it yourself instructions? Or is this a PITA and I should just go to the dealer. The sensor was replaced under warranty but with the truck being over 12 years old I doubt it is still covered. Is this a dealer only part? With over 160K miles this truck has been great besides some fuel pumps :) an intake maniford gasket has always eaten some dex-cool (a hate-love relationship)

 

Thanks for the insight.

anyone?

 

 

I did this on my 97 like 10 years ago so can't offer any detailed instructions. I am sure they are on line somewhere. It was a very easy job. Just need to work upsidedown under the steering colume to disconnect the shaft.

Theres actually a kit out from GM that also gives you a new bearing,You want to change it so it keeps proper pressure on the sensor.

I remember that being an issue on my '97,At first we just changed the sensor,but I still had issues,then GM came out with the kit so we changed both,I had no issues after that.
