    I don't think so since I just had my tires rotated at a very good shop and the problem has been going on long before that. They would have noticed something since their specialty is front ends/brakes/tires.
    The dealers' service guy says there's some sort of connection between the brake vacuum and the steering on some models but wouldn't let me get a word in to even try and identify if it was that model with this particular configuration. He rattled off all these terms so fast and wanted to get me in for an appointment (the service guys get paid by the services they set up) that I just see $$$'s going to a dealership and him.

    Actually, I found that it's the EVO sensor on the steering wheel shaft inside the cab. It's about $30-35 bucks and a 10-15 minute DIY job.

Steering wheel slightly hard while turning my car


The two systems in question are not related, so you have two issues to deal with. The power steering issue could be as simple as a glazed or loose drive belt. When you turn the wheel, the power steering pump puts additional load on its pulley. If the belt is glazed or loose, it can slip momentarily and cause stiffness in the steering. Low or contaminated power steering fluid can also cause this. Moisture in the fluid will cause problems since water compresses differently than hydraulic fluids. As far as the transmission is concerned, there are a lot of things that can cause late shifting, from vacuum issues to solenoids, to fluid quality and level.

What could cause steering problems (wheels hard to turn) below speeds of 20 MPH?

Knocks when you turn, steering column jerks


Hi there - S Wilkins here.
Could be a front hub bearing or axle CV joint.
You may be able to raise the front wheels and move them around and find what is loose.

Steering wheel moves 1/2 inch to the side


It sounds like the upper steering colomn bowl is loose. The bolts come up from the bottom and hold the lower portion of the steering wheel cover to the upper. The steering shaft runs down thru the middle of both. If loose the steering wheel will rock side to side in the upper bearing race, not holding the shaft tight or straight. Its actually easier to remove the entire steering colomn, turn upside down and tighten. Remove the lower steering shaft at the firewall (mark the spline alignment). Disconnect the electrical connections at the lower colomn. Disconnect shifter (if not floor console shifter). Unbolt from dash and remove the entire colomn, with wheel attached. Flip over and chek the lower bolts for tightness. It can be done from disassembling the colomn, but its a lot of work and lots of little pieces to loose.

When excelerate to 70 mph my steering wheel vibrates. What should I do?


This is very common. It can either be your tires need to be balanced. Or your car needs to be aligned at an alignment center. One or the other should stop the vibration.
