Steering veers to the left?

At freeway speeds when I you go to change lanes from left to right, the steering kinda "takes off" to the left. When this happens, it don't go far but you can feel the wheel go to the left? No problem at low speeds

Drive slowly down the middle of a straight road, let the steering wheel go and apply the brakes. If the car wants to turn by itself check your ball joints and shocks. If the car remains straight you may have an irregular wearing tire which causes it wonder at higher speeds.
I hope this helps

2006 malibu with electric power steering


When you turn the wheel to the right, the vehicle (when in motion) will veer to the right. Conversely, when you turn the wheel to the left, the vehicle (again, when in motion) will veer to the left.
The turning of the steering wheel is made easier by the advent of the electric power steering. its precursor, hydraulic steering assist, performed the same task in a different manner.
Is that what you were asking? NO? SHOCKING!

What is this roaring sound in the front right axle


If the roaring sound get louder at highway speeds try veering side to side in your lane safely of course to see if the roar noise changes,this would indicate a hub & wheel bearing assembly issue and would need to be replaced.

Weak humm when driving over 35kmh.


possibly a wheel bearing or tyre noise from badly worn tyres
while driving in a straight line and noise is present change lanes or shimmy car left and right if noise gets worse or better wheel bearing problem
also if noise gets worse in normal town driving speed and gets less at higher freeway speeds check your wheel bearings

1997 diesel suburban steering goes left


I doubt it's your 4x4. Most transfer case will start turning the front driveshaft, meaning that BOTH front wheels would try to turn.

Could be a brake pad/caliper locking up on your left wheel. That'll make that wheel turn slower resulting in the veering left.

Could also be a wheel bearing. However usually you'll hear a grinding noise to go along with that. And it'll pull rather consistently in that direction rather than suddenly.

Or, what first comes to mind is that your steering box is loose, or the gear inside the steering box is stripped in one spot. Or your front tie rods could be shifting or possibly ball joints. These would cause a sudden shifting/veering.

All of these things are front end related. And also very dangerous. Take it down to any alignment shop, have them put it on a lift, and diagnose immediately.

Worse case scenerio is that a front end part breaks and sends you out of control and into someone else. Please get it checked. A diesel Suburban could do a lot of damage.
