2009 Nissan Sentra QuestionsCan a broken strut cause the steering column to lock? (1 answer)
Had car cranked and turned it off upon trying to start it back up the steering column was locked. It will turn right towards the bad strut but not left.
What caused this?
When I go to start the car, it will start up and run for a second and then the rpm needle will start bouncing. When I give it gas, it makes a "bolllll" noise and eventually dies. If anyone can help me, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks
