RX4 steering turning itself to left and right
Guys, I just replaced the steering rack on my RX4 and filled with transmission fluid. And then started the car, as soon as you move the steering wheel to any direction, the car starts to turn left and right and this happens very violently, it can even break your arms. For this to stop I have to switch the ignition off. We took the new steering rack out and installed the old one as the car was driving fine with it except for the rack-end that broke. To my surprise, same thing happened. Once I disconnect the transmission pipes, then the steering is fine.
Is there anything we've missed or could you please point me to the right direction as to what is causing this. Any help/pointers will be appreciated.
My car is a 2.0L 16V Petrol with Manual Transmission.
