SOURCE: pull to the left

This could actually be several things. Start with the simple stuff like checking tire pressure. If that is fine, then jack the front end of the vehicle up, and put it on jack stands and with the car in neutral see if one of the front wheels is harder to turn than the other. If this is the case, you could have one of the brakes dragging, and will need to fixed. If this does not help, take it in for an alignment. They will typically do a free inspection of all steering/suspension components.
Good luck!

SOURCE: I have a grinding noise

you most likely need to have your front brakes replace post haste. the grinding noise,does it get worse when you apply the brakes? the grinding noise will be a bad brake rotor and will also make you car pull hard one way or other depending on which brake is worse. recommend highly that you have those brakes looked at. the more you drive it, the worse the problem will be.thank you for choosing fixya.com and please rate my solution thank you!

SOURCE: vehicle pulls to left when

there are 3 things that i know , that would cause this situation, 1. the tires not having the proper air pressure. 2. the front end needs alignment. 3. i would check the proportioning valve out , in order to make sure that it is working correctly, the valve distributes even brake pressure to all 4 wheels.

My 2004 mazda mpv jerks to the left then straightens back out. This usually happens when I have to accelerate really fast or right about the time it shifts into the last gear.


Mike, this may be because the left wheel is the dominate drive axle (left axle locks up and pulls hard, while right side slips) when under power. Vehicles that do not have possie drive differentials have this pulling characteristic.

My vehicle pulls gently to the off side if I loosen my grip on the steering wheel. Is it a general problem. The vehicle has covered 40,000 miles from new


This could be worn tires or even low tire pressure on one side of the vehicle or possibly a slight front end alignment problem. Check the tires first.

Power steering


Hello Mohamede.

Not sure what your question is here.

I will post a couple of common issues with the Elantra steering problems.
Hopefully one of these following problems will assist you.

1. SERVICE TIP - POWER STEERING OIL PUMP WHINE NOISE DESCRIPTION:
Before replacing a power steering oil pump for a "whine" noise condition, check the oil pump reservoir filter screen for contamination. If the filter screen at the bottom of the oil pump reservoir is clogged, it may cause the pump to aerate and cause a "whine" noise.
If the filter screen is clogged, replace the reservoir and reconfirm the condition.

2.Subject
ABSOLUTE STEERING POSITION (ASP) CALIBRATION FOR ELECTRIC POWER STEERING (EPS) DESCRIPTION:
This bulletin provides the Absolute Steering Position (ASP) calibration method for 2007-2009 ELANTRA (HD) and 2009 ELANTRA TOURING (FD) Electric Power Steering (EPS or Motor-Driven Power Steering). This procedure is required when the battery is discharged or after the battery or EPS-related parts are replaced.
NOTE:
If the EPS ASP calibration is not conducted when the battery is discharged or after the battery or EPS-related parts are replaced, the EPS and or Electronic Stability Control (ESC) warning lamp will be turned on and the automatic EPS return-to-center control will not be performed. VEHICLES AFFECTED:
Model: 2007-2010 ELANTRA (HD), 2009-2010 ELANTRA TOURING (FD)
3. Subject:
DIAGNOSIS AND CORRECTION OF VEHICLE PULL This bulletin supersedes TSB 05-50-012 to include 2009 models
DESCRIPTION:
Several factors may cause vehicle pull, both vehicle related and external conditions. The purpose of this bulletin is to assist in identifying the vehicle related conditions that cause pull and how to correct those conditions.
CAUSES OF VEHICLE PULL:
Vehicle pull is the tendency of the vehicle to drift right or left while driving in a straight ahead direction on a straight road at a constant speed with no pressure on the steering wheel. This pull or drift may be gradual and can always be compensated for by inputs through the steering wheel. One or more of the following conditions may cause the vehicle to pull:
Non-vehicle conditions that may cause the vehicle to pull:
^ Cambered road surfaces - Most highways are built with cambered or "crowned" surfaces to drain rain water. Sometimes the road camber is visually noticeable. Other times, it is not. The vehicle may tend to pull to the left or right, depending on the camber of the road surface. ^ Cross-winds - A sometimes overlooked, yet possible cause of steering drift is cross-winds. Side winds at higher vehicle speeds may cause vehicle pull. Please do not rule out cross-winds when diagnosing a vehicle pull. Vehicle pull caused by these two conditions is not related to vehicle adjustments and no repair should be made.
Vehicle conditions that may cause the vehicle to pull:
^ Tire inflation pressure - As small as a 2 pounds/square inch tire inflation pressure difference between the right and left tires may cause a vehicle to pull. Be sure to check the tire pressure before the tires are warmed up prior to attempting more extensive diagnosis. ^ Wheel alignment - Slightly out of specification wheel alignment causes very few vehicles to pull. Therefore, if the vehicle wheel alignment has been adjusted as close as possible to specification, DO NOT attempt to correct the vehicle pull by changing the wheel alignment angles by bending suspension components or other non-approved methods. ^ Uneven brake adjustment - If one of the four brakes is dragging, the vehicle may pull to the side of the dragging brake. Verify that none of the brakes are dragging and that they are adjusted correctly prior to attempting more extensive diagnosis. ^ Incorrect vehicle trim height - If the trim height of the vehicle is not equal on all sides, the vehicle may pull to the side of the lower trim height. Check and adjust the trim height of the vehicle as necessary. Please note that a slight variation in the vehicle trim height seldom causes a noticeable vehicle pull.
^ Tire construction - The way in which the tire is built can produce vehicle pull. An example of this is the placement of the under tread belt. An off-center radial tire belt can cause the tire to develop a side force while rolling straight down the road and the tire will tend to roll like a cone. To correct this condition, please use the flow chart. This chart provides the sequence of procedures designed to be performed for all conditions of vehicle pull. ^ Tire size - Different size tires or different make of tires, on either axles, may cause a vehicle pull.

2001 f250 pull to left at all speeds


THe left brake caliper could be sticking on which would cause the vehicle to pull to the left at all speeds. Drive for a short distance and check carefully if the left wheel is hotter than the right. If it is hotter it's a good bet caliper is sticking
