    Hello Revo owners! Bago din lang ako dito, I just bought a second hand Revo SRJ with a 2.0 engine last June, giving up my corolla car for this. Ang mapapansin mo not only to an AUV but also sa mga vans (I used to commute TTh riding in vans, dala ko revo MWF) ay talagang matagtag especially sa uneven roads pag konti ang laman. Ang problema ko naman ay with regard to steering. Medyo malambot yung aking steering, medyo hindi sya responsive gaano or sloppy. Nagpalit na ako ng tie rods and rack ends at bearing. Nabawasan ung pagiging sloppy nya pero di pa rin gaano natatangal, especially pag irregular yung rod surface parang pumapaling ng konti, so I need to exert a little effort para lang magremain cya onstraight line path. Para sa mga nakaexperience na ng ganito, kindly help me with this.

    malambot talaga ang power steering ng revo. parang overboosted nga.. ngunit hindi siya loose.. at halos walang play yan pag nasa kundisyon. baka may dapat i-adjust o palitan sa steering system. yung rack & pinion.. baka loose na..

    I agree with Dr.D on this. The rack & pinion might be worn out due to use & potential abuse. Have someone check it by disconnecting it and check the play with the rack ends locked in a position.

    tama c dr.d. rack & pinion nga yan.lalo na kung may freeplay.

    happened to my car, kaso corolla gli big body yung akin. and sira lang is yung rack & pinion bushing lang. tunaw na yung sa right side, kaya may free play na. pinalitan ko na pareho yung bushing ng bago. pa check mo muna yung bushings ng rack & pinion baka yung lang ang sira,makakatipid ka pa.

    at syempre after maayos kelangan ng wheel alignment.

    I drive our 2001 Revo alone most of the time. I don't find it matagtag at all. At least while seated at the front hindi matagtag. No such steering problem too with our Revo. The steering is not as taut as those in sedans and CUVs but its pretty livable actually and not something to worry about. The steering in recirculating ball and nut systems are much worse. There is no free play dapat sa steering ng Revo and its very precise. Like the above posts suggested, have the rack and pinion checked and also check if you are in need of an alignment.

    Thanks for your replies guys. Ipacheck ko na lang yung steering rack ko. Madali ba masira yung rack and pinion or kung durable man sya, are there othere steering componenmts that need adjustments and replacements? Yung corolla ko kasi e yung plastic bushing lang and pinapalitan ng mechanic. Kung minsan iniisip ko na yung ball joint ang may sira kasi yun na lang ang di ko pa pinapalitan outside of the steering rack, pero wala naman kalampag. I purcahsed the my revo with 98,000 plus on its odometer and still looks new, sariwa inside and out.

Medyo loose and sloppy steering revo ko
