1997 Mercury Mountaineer AWD_ Notchy Power Steering

Post by jasonty » Tue Jul 31, 2018 8:24 pm

My belt tensioner's bearing failed and caused the serpentine belt to be destroyed. After I left the shop the steering was VERY notchy. They stated that this was normal for Fords after running w/ the belt off, and would self correct. Does this sound correct?

Is it still notchy? Or did it smooth out after awhile like they said?
You're only as good as the last car you build.

It’s a spare vehicle, so it hasn’t went very far. I guess I’ll have to go out some miles on it.
