The stering on my Volvo wont turn right when startig up willgo left and go OK after a few seconds oillevel is up but murky. Uwe

See if you can get someone to help you, because someone needs to start the car and someone needs to look under the car, don't lift the car up while looking under there. You need to see if the steering wheel is turning under the car. It may be turning right, but it may be something blocking it from turning left. A tie rod could be broken.

My steering wheel is locked on my 2001 Volvo. What do you mean by turn the wheel INTO the steer? I'm a new driver and I'm not sure which way I turn the week to release the lock.

if the wheels are pointed to the left than turn the steering wheel gently to the left. If there is to much pressure on the steering wheel position lock it will make it difficult to turn the key. Taking the pressure off the lock by steering the wheel into the direction of the turn will help take the pressure off. If that is the problem the key should turn. If the key still doesn't turn than there is a problem with the lock cylinder.

With the key removed from the lock cylinder you can tap on the lock cylinder with the handle end of a screw driver. After a couple taps try turning the key again. Repeat a couple of times. If the key turns after trying this than the lock cylinder needs to be replaced ASAP.

Volvo xc90 2004 buzzing in steering wheel, clunck noise under car

that sounds like you are low on power steering fluid ... when the level gets low then the pump starts to ingest air and that produces a buzzing sound when you turn the wheel .....i would add or change the fluid and check for leaks and mechanical loosness in the under car linkages can have that checked at your next oil change .

Steering wheel lock stuck, key won't turn

Thank you thank you! This solved my problem. I have a V70 and I parked it on a steep hill and cranked the wheel toward the curb. When I tried to turn the key in the ignition it would not turn and the wheel was in a tightly locked position. Wouldn't budge -or so I thought. The best solution was right. I pulled the wheel INTO the steer and it gave with some resistance as if it was on a spring. That was all I needed to turn the key in the lock.
