Hello Everyone... to the forum and I look forward to being able to answer as many questions as I ask going forward. Thanks in advance for any help!
As I am working through getting the 94 Intrepid I bought for my son on the road I am in need of your expertise. I have some vertical play in the steering wheel. It will move up and down aprox .5 to.75 inches. Before I begin taking things apart I thought I would through the question out to see if anyone has and idea about what it could be. It's a simple up and down movement of the steering wheel only. Is there a bushing that could be bad or is it as simple a a few screws needing to be tightened.
It is not uncommon for the bolts/nuts that hold the steering column up to become loose - but since you say it is not perceived in the cowling, and just the wheel (right?), then it may be a bad steering column - you'd need to replace the column. Have no idea if it is still available through the dealer or not, but I'd use a junk yard unit anyway.
