Front-wheel drive vehicles have that tendency by nature but it shouldn't be severe and can indicate worn steering or suspension parts. Alignment can be costly but while it is checked, problems of the kind you describe will come to light.

Keep pulling when i press the gas

If the wheel alignment has been done recently and you haven't hit any major pot holes/curbs check tire pressure first to make sure all are even. You may have a bad tire causing the pull as well. You can rotate the front tires to the back and retest for the pull.If pull is still present, you may have a torque steer issue or steering/suspension problem. Has the ride height been modified? Check font end components ( tie rods/ball joints/control arm bushings for wear ). Make sure you are using a flat road surface to determine the pull. Most engineers design the road crown for water to flow off on the right side so the vehicle will always want to go to the right slightly. Keep this in mind

Just purchased used Nissan Altima with 85000 miles and 4 cylinder. When driving at speeds over 55 mph I notice wheels driving (pulling) more on one side than the other when going around bends and...

Torque steer will always pull your steering wheel in the same direction, and it is unlikely this is a transmission problem. The first thing I would do is have the alignment checked. It may also be a problem with the power steering, but the alignment is more likely.

My 2011 jeep patriot steering pulls hard right when accelerating. If steering is corrected to compensate and I ease up on gas, it will then over correct to the left. Dealer service says that's normal. My...

I'm not sure what the problem is, but I DO know that dealer service is 100% INCORRECT when saying this is normal. A vehicle, especially a brand new model like you've aquired, should drive straight as an arrow, accelerating or not. Dealer just doesn't want to fix it. Take it back to dealer, as you should not do any work to it yourself, (voiding the warranty), and demand them to fix the problem. This is not normal. Just be demanding, and say this IS a problem, you know it's a problem, and you won't quit until the problem is fixed. All dealers are the same. If they don't HAVE to do the work, they won't. It needs to get done.

I hope this helps!

1986 accord when shifting, giving gas or less gas power shifts?

Jack car up. Hold the front wheel with both hands in the 3 and 9 poistion. Try and rock it towards you and away. If it is easy to move the wheel bearings need replaced.

Take it to an alignment garage and get the tracking/alignment sorted. Are the inner edges of the tires worn?

Push down on the wing hard to compress the suspension and release, if one side returns slowly, new shock or spring is needed. See if you can spot any cracked springs too.

Momentarily pulls left when accelerating (feels drifty/floaty like being pushed sideways by a strong breeze) then pulls right(same thing) when letting off accelerator. No play/slop in steering.

If you are driving any front wheel drive vehicle, what you are feeling is called torque steer....sometimes it's from poor design but it can also be caused by a broken engine or transmission mount allowing the engine/trans assembly to shift under load or when removing load.
You can do a quick test by holding the brake down firmly and in gear, press down on the gas. have someone watch (from the side of the car ONLY) and see if the engine shifts. Do in both drive and reverse.
Be very careful when doing this that the car does not get away from you and do not hold power for more than about fifteen seconds at a time or it can overheat the transmission. This only works in automatic trans cars... for stickshift ones you need to move the engine with a long pry bar.

Torque converter question.

I am going to say no, but id a possibility here is how I believe it works the converter would be Free spinning and not locked up spinning at low rpm so the hydroloics pressure is at minimum the steering when would have nothing to do wit it. However Ford has changes all the time in 2002 They connected the Ac to run threw the transmission so the transmission computer disengages the AC pump when you hit the gas and drops it into passing gear by flooring the fuel pedal this drops out the ac and also the power steering pressure if your not tuning the wheel this cuts out the power steering pump pressure switch so killing compressor is to gain another 5 House power you more horse power it is conceivable there is a hidden circuit in the computer system to cause a tork converter malfunction of the computer but I don't thing there is, the reason they would kill the power steering and a/c would be to gain 5 horse power for both ac and power steering which would give you added tork when it drops it into passing gear if you floor it. However I think the guy is misinformed. even if the transmission ran the power steering system it would have a system in place to by pass the tork converter I hope this helps. If you need any more information feel free for my opinion on this. The tork converter only goes into lockup in certain conditions. your description does not fit tork converter lock up. You could damage your tork converter if you have the transmission in drive and the brakes on and revved up the engine to 2000 rpms for more than 20 seconds you could balloon the tork converter up and cause it to destroy the fins in the tork converter That is the only way to damage it unless it was low on transmission fluid or some totally strange problem. I Have worked on a dozen of these cars and newer and have worked with Ford for 18 years. so the only way to be sure would be to buy a subscription to and research the power train system and look at recalls or campaigns that might cover this. thanks for using fix-ya.
