Steering wheel not centered

You will need to have an alignment performed to center the steering wheel. If any front end steering parts have been changed, the steering angles will be affected causing the sterring wheel to be off center. Also, hitting curbs/potholes can affect the alignment off setting the steering wheel

What causes the steering wheel to vibrate?

Most commonly
- a wheel balance weight has fallen off,
- the tyre has gone out of round,
- the tyre has developed a bulge somewhere,
- the driver has hit a pothole and distorted the metal wheel

Less commonly one of the ball joints in the steering has become faulty.

I have a 1998 Kia Sportage and the steering wheel is hard to turn I checked the Power Steering Fluid what do yo think the problem is please help

Assuming that your vehicle hasn't been in any accident or has hit a pothole and damages steering components you may want to check the pwr steer fluid in reservoir and look for foamy bubbles. This is a sign powering steering pump has failed.
It could be the pump has failed or the steering gear is bypassing fluid. If you jack up the front end with both wheels off the ground you should feel very little resistance, with steering column unlocked car not started. If you can't turn the wheels I'd suggest you start looking into something is bent and binding

Steering rack need to be adjusted (stops need adjustment), specially with the relatively narrow Factory tires... it could be that the steering rack has worn mountong bushings or that the car was subjected to an impact or bump-pothole. Check steering rack and engine-transmission-steering subchassis alignment. To do this, you need to raise the four corners of the car on jackstands safely, then get under it with a tape measure and start taking measurements to detect if it has displaced from proper location. Only four large bolts hold it to the rest of the car body, so that it is easy to get it displaced when hard hitting a bump or large/deep pothole. this is part of the safe design of modern cars, so that in case of frontal impact or crash, the entire subchassis displaces to the rear and the engine goes down under the cabin, saving the passengers by absorbing a large part of the impact energy. Some times, surprisingly, a heavy impact with a pohhole displaces the subchassis to the rear on the impact side, and the steering Wheel need to be turned sideway to keep the vehicle going straight, but a Wheel alignement is NOT the proper fix. Measuring and restablishing the proper subchassis distances returns the proper steering, the steering Wheel returns to the exact center without any steering linkage realignmente!: the whole subchassis was displaced, but the suspensi?n kept its alignment!

I have a 92 accord and when I turn left or right the steering wheel does not come back to center but the car still tracks straight

So if when you are driving straight the steering wheel is not straight, you have an alignment problem. with the possability of damaged steering linkage. (if youve hit a curb or pothole lately) Either way take it to an alignment shop and they can fix it as well as tell you if anything is bent and needs replacing. should cost about 70 for alignment and 50-200 for parts.

1996 jeep cherokee steering wheel shakes when i hit a pothole or big enough bump

Make sure your steering stabilizer is in good shape. It sounds like it is time for a replacement though. Possibly a ball joint or tie rod end problem, but most likely the stabilizer.

Was undercarriage or wheels subject to hit, large potholes?
Has suspension been lubed recently.

Noise problem

These vehicles are frequently exhibiting wheel bearing problems...sometimes sounds like a "rumble". Could be that pothole incident has caused damage to the bearing. Cheers, Patrick

Steering problem

If it is 4wd you may have a problem with your front differential. GMCs are known for having front differential axle seals leaking. If all the fluid is out metal parts may be binding.
