Your alignment is off. The "toe" aspect has been compromised and this is what centers the steering wheel. Toe is the biggest tire wear factor angle. Have the alignment checked and you will find the toe needs adjustment.

Steering wheel is not straight, and I have an appointment for getting a wheel alignment, and my question is that will the wheel alignment also fix my steering wheel to be back straight and normal ?

A wheel alignment will help if that is the only thing causing the car to go right. If you have hit something , like a curb it could have bent or broken something in the front end. The wheel should return to straight if the alignment is all that is needed.

Steering wheel not centered

You will need to have an alignment performed to center the steering wheel. If any front end steering parts have been changed, the steering angles will be affected causing the sterring wheel to be off center. Also, hitting curbs/potholes can affect the alignment off setting the steering wheel

Remove steering wheel lock 1985 chevy celebrity v6

no take off the cover in the middle of the steering wheel being able to access the bolt to remove the steering wheel. If you don\'t have a steering wheel puller you can rent one from a auto parts store but i just leave the steering wheel bolt on a few threads and hit it with a hammer pulling back on the steering wheel. It should come off after 4 or 5 hits. then take out the blinker assembly (couple phillip screws). So

now you have access to the pin. If you can\'t get that pin out with a needle nose or plan on putting it back in then you\'ll have to dig in deeper. There ya go for the short versioin. Don\'t listen to people when they say jerk the wheel really hard to break that pin, you;ll just end up breaking other things and don\'t think ya need that. but taking out that pin wont do anything (the only thing behind it is a spring) Good luck.

I have a 92 accord and when I turn left or right the steering wheel does not come back to center but the car still tracks straight

So if when you are driving straight the steering wheel is not straight, you have an alignment problem. with the possability of damaged steering linkage. (if youve hit a curb or pothole lately) Either way take it to an alignment shop and they can fix it as well as tell you if anything is bent and needs replacing. should cost about 70 for alignment and 50-200 for parts.

I think my steering wheel is loose.Hit a deer awhile back and after body work i started notice my steering wheel was moving up & down.

This may or may not have anything to do with the accident. It is common for the bolts that hold the steering head to the column to back out over time. This can be fixed by removing the steering column shrouds and the steering wheel and completely removing the bolts and reinstalling them with thread-locker.

Then it is possible that the impact caused your column to partially collapse. (It is designed to do this to absorb impact and reduce injury) I don't know how hard you hit. Nobody can tell you for sure without some disassembly and inspection.

Fixed Properly: You need to bring it to a shop- Modica Bros/Pep Boys/Firestone/Disount Tire/Etc. It's a simple alignment and it'll cost somewhere in the $120 price range - possibly less.

My grand limited jeep cherokee shakes when I am going over 45 mphs and I hit a bump in the road. How can I fix it. I had the track bar replace front end alinement two new tires tires balance and rotate now...

Hitting a bump and then having oscillations of the steering whell is a sure sign of worn bushings, tie rod ends or an internally worn power steering box. The only way to find out is to jak the front of the car up and then rest the car on jack stands from the FRAME of the far. Then grasp each tire / wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock pushing and pulling while checking for any signs of movement or looseness. Your checking the ball joints, control arms, wheel or spindle bearings and tie rods for wear. Also grasp the tire at 6 and 12 o'clock positions and check for movement in sterring components. The people that did the alignment should have mentioned that you had steering or suspension component wear. They also should have stated that they can not do an alignment without repairing / replacing the worn components. Any wear in steering or suspension parts will cause the symptom that you described. If you just had the alignment.... take the car back to the shop and have them re-check the suspension parts for wear. Most alignments come with a 30 day warranty.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hit a curb 1999 Ford Taurus SE 16" wheels steering problem

It could be the steering rack but the first thing you should do is have an alignment job done. Even if there is another problem, the hit would almost certainly knocked your suspension out of alignment. So you'll probably need to get this done anyway. If there's still a problem after that, then I'd have your steering looked at. But the alignment may fix it entirely.
