Question about Cars & Trucks
After approx. 15 minutes of highway driving. I can clear the symptoms by pulling over and cycling the steering wheel.
Check for oil level in the reservoir. Check the drive belt for condition and tension. BY turning the wheel from lock to lock (recycling the wheel )you are in effect bleeding air out of the system

likely either the steering rack&pinion assembly is leaking or the hoses to it are leaking, have it put on a lift to see which steering componet the fluid is leaking from.

Yes it could be the wheel bearing. After stopping, see if the wheel itself is hot to the touch (like burn your hand hot) if so, take it to the shop right away...unless you plan to change out the wheel bearings yourself.

SOURCE: steering wheel is pulling to the right. At low speed (15 mi.) steering wheel moves at least 2 inch each way, car shakes when drives faster. Not a wheel or alignment problem. Could this be the drivesha
Sounds like you have a split belt on one of your front tires. Check this by jacking up car and support on stands. Spin tires by hand and look for uneven tire surface.

i have read 7 different reports like this one below
Well - my steering was acting up too and I had just received something from GM to say that there may be a problem but don't bring the vehicle in unless it is giving you problems. I would be driving along and all of a sudden the steering wheel get's "Heavy" feeling and I'm not sure if it will stop steering all together. So I took it in and was told that the steering column needs to be replaced. So they order the parts - takes over 1 week to come in and they do the work. The bill was $435.00 and GM did cover it. However I am still having the problem and the other day - 2 days after having it "fixed" I was driving down the highway and the steering wheel starting jerking around in my hand and the whole care was vibrating. I pulled over and got out to check my tires to see if I had a flat. I waited a few minutes - got back in and started to drive again and it was fine. The steering is still acting up and now after reading all this stuff here I am worried about driving it anywhere. I have a son in Special Olympics and we have to drive 60 km. each week on the highway to go swimming. Yikes - is this car safe to drive!! I called my dealer to tell him my problems and I am hoping that it acts up when I can drive it in there so that they can see what it's doing. This is crazy!!
