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.

What does it mean when your front wheels are not parallel? Driver side points straight forward and the front left points a little to the right.


It means that your front end is out of alignment. The front wheels should be adjusted so that both point slightly inwards at the front of the car when the steering wheel is straight. This is referred to as "toe-in." The reason why cars and trucks are aligned with toe-in is because the wheels go to a straight position when traveling on a highway due to the road resistance pushing the tires back. What you have is a "toe-out" condition which will cause the tires to wear faster at the side adjacent to the back of the wheels. Have your car aligned to avoid such uneven wear.

Why is the steering wheel not straight as the car goes straight?


Because the car need a front-end alignment.
Here's how that works.
The steering wheel is attached to 2 tie rods (they go by different names sometimes).
These tie rods are then attached one to each front wheel.
There are at least 2, and sometimes 4 adjustments for these under the front of the car.
When someone does a front end "alignment". they will loosen all these joints and will set the wheel straight to match the direction of the car.
Over the years, these parts wear and the wheel gets crooked.
Be blessed.

How do i align a steering wheel on a 2002 astro van


If the steering wheel hasn't been removed and is just off center then the front end may need alignment to correctly get the steering wheel at center.

I want to know how to fix the alignment on my 1995 honda accord ex.


Before making wheel alignment adjustment, perform the following checks:
  1. Tires should be equal in size and runout must not be excessive. Tires and wheels should be in balance, and inflated to manufacturer's specifications.

  2. Wheel bearings must be properly adjusted. Steering linkage and suspension must not have excessive looseness. Check for wear in tie rod ends and ball joints.
  3. Steering gear box must not have excessive play. Check and adjust to manufacturer's specifications.
  4. Vehicle must be at curb height with full fuel load and spare tire in vehicle. No extra load should be on vehicle.
  5. Vehicle must be level with floor and with suspension settled. Jounce front and rear of vehicle several times and allow it to settle to normal curb height.
  6. If steering wheel is not centered with front wheels in straight-ahead position, correct by shortening one tie rod adjusting sleeve and lengthening opposite sleeve equal amounts.
  7. Ensure wheel lug nuts are tightened to torque specifications
Ride Height Adjustment

Before adjusting alignment, check riding height. Riding height must be checked with vehicle on level floor and tires properly inflated. Passenger and luggage compartments must be unloaded. Bounce vehicle several times, and allow suspension to settle. Visually inspect vehicle from front to rear and from side to side for signs of abnormal height.
Measure riding height. See figure. Riding height between left and right sides of vehicle should vary less than 1′ (25.4 mm). If riding height is not within specification, check suspension components and repair or replace them as necessary.
Wheel Alignment Procedures

Honda recommends using commercially available computerized 4-wheel alignment equipment. Follow equipment manufacturer instructions to obtain vehicle alignment settings. Use following procedures for necessary adjustments.
Civic Camber Adjustment
Compare camber settings with vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If camber is incorrect, check for bent or damaged front suspension components. Replace faulty components. Recheck camber.
Civic Caster Adjustment
DO NOT use more than 2 shims. If more than 2 shims are required to adjust caster angle, check for bent or damaged suspension components.
Compare caster settings with vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If caster is incorrect, check for bent or damaged front suspension components. Replace faulty components. Recheck caster.
Civic Toe-In Adjustment

  1. Secure steering wheel in straight-ahead position. Measure front wheel toe-in. If adjustment is needed, loosen tie rod lock nuts. Turn both tie rods equally in the same direction until front wheels are in straight-ahead position and toe-in reading is correct. Tighten tie rod lock nuts. Reposition tie rod boots if twisted.
  2. Ensure parking brake is released. Check rear wheel toe-in. If adjustment is needed, hold adjusting bolt on rear compensator arm and loosen lock nut. See figure. Adjust rear toe-in by sliding rear control arm until rear toe-in is correct. Install NEW lock nut, and tighten it while holding adjusting bolt.

When I'm in 4 wd the front wheels feel like the brakes are being applied when I make a sharp turn. No problems when driving straight or in 2 wd.


It sounds like you are driving in 4wd drive on dry pavement. The front drive axles do not work like the rear differential. When you turn, the outside front wheel must travel farther than the inside wheel, therefore they are traveling through the turn at different speeds. If you are on dry pavement, this causes the gears to bind. You don't notice this on slick surfaces because the outside wheel will slip instead of bind up the gears. You should not use 4wd on dry pavement. That's the advantage of push button, or shift on the fly, 4wd. You can shift back to 2wd when you encounter dry pavement. All wheel drive vehicles don't have this problem because they have a limited slip front differential as opposed to a locking differential on 4wd. Hope I didn;t confuse you too much.

Just changed gear box how do I straighten out the streering wheel?1993 jeep cherokee


If you didn't have a problem with the wheel before you started the job, you may not have the pitman arm aligned properly on the shaft. If you are sure that's ok then move tie rod adjustments equally in the direction you need to go. (example: if wheels point right with steering wheel straight, turn right side in several turns and left side out the exact same number of turns). Or, have the toe in re-set at an alignment shop.

Vehicle wanders side to side-hard to keep straight


its not likely that the gear is causing the vehicle to pull. the first thing i would check would be switching he front tires and seeing if the vehicle still pulls the same way. if it does then the next step is check the suspension and alignment. if it does not then your tires are the problem. as far as the gear goes the only problem i have ever seen with that vehicles steering gear is leakage. however it is not impossible for a valve problem to cause a pull and the way to check it is get the front tires on jack stands and start the vehicle rev the engine to about 3000 and see if the wheel turns.
