Check your tire pressure first, may want to check tire tread, check your rack bushings( this is the most likly cause)

On a 2008 mercury mariner after you replace the torque sensor in the steering column do you have to realign the steering wheel to the rack an pinion i just had the torque sensor replaced and now my st


First check the air pressure in both front tires; if they don't match, that can cause the problem. If they do match take it back to the dealer that fixed it and take them for a drive with them driving it. Once they see the problem, tell them to fix it.

OK i have a 2009 nissan xterra first off I love it, 2nd off i got 2 brand new tires put on the front and the ones from the front put on the rear. Well the tire man told me i needed an alignment bc it was...


I would get a second opinion. Apparently the tire guy may have got the alignment right, but didn't check for loose suspension or steering parts that will cause your problem. Have your inner and outer tie rods checked for wear and looseness. Also the suspension's ball joints.

Car veers to the right


Very good if there is a deer on your left! But not really good for normal driving... Generally you will get a pull if you either have a worn steering component such as a tie rod end, Or have bent something off-roading.. If you have just bought tires, you may have what's called directional steer which can sometimes happen with just the right combination of tires. In that case, just move the front tires to the rear and that will usually help. One other thing to check is this: Jack up the front of the vehicle so both wheels are off the ground and start the car. if the wheels turn to one side by themselves then there is a valving problem in the steering box... that needs to be replaced.

Just brought my 1995 Cherokee recently, and I already have a problem with it. Going about 45mph veering left. The left front wheel started woobling violently as if it was about to come off. No nuts was...


That condition is called "death wobble" and can be pretty scary! I've found that the majority of ones I've seen with that condition need ball joints.
Many shops will blame the steering damper (sideways shock on front steering linkage) That part can be damaged by the wobbling but will not cure the problem. Looseness and wear of any of the steering components can also cause the same condition, as well as improperly torqued wheels but in most cases the ball joints are just worn out (no grease fittings there).
If you decide to do the job yourself, get a chilton or haynes manual and also be aware that you will need a hand held press (they cannot be hammered in) While you have it apart, check your brakes, axle joints and hub bearing. Since they need to be removed to get at the ball joints, it's a good time to service them if needed!

Steering veers to the left?


Drive slowly down the middle of a straight road, let the steering wheel go and apply the brakes. If the car wants to turn by itself check your ball joints and shocks. If the car remains straight you may have an irregular wearing tire which causes it wonder at higher speeds.
I hope this helps

1997 diesel suburban steering goes left


I doubt it's your 4x4. Most transfer case will start turning the front driveshaft, meaning that BOTH front wheels would try to turn.

Could be a brake pad/caliper locking up on your left wheel. That'll make that wheel turn slower resulting in the veering left.

Could also be a wheel bearing. However usually you'll hear a grinding noise to go along with that. And it'll pull rather consistently in that direction rather than suddenly.

Or, what first comes to mind is that your steering box is loose, or the gear inside the steering box is stripped in one spot. Or your front tie rods could be shifting or possibly ball joints. These would cause a sudden shifting/veering.

All of these things are front end related. And also very dangerous. Take it down to any alignment shop, have them put it on a lift, and diagnose immediately.

Worse case scenerio is that a front end part breaks and sends you out of control and into someone else. Please get it checked. A diesel Suburban could do a lot of damage.

Noise and vibration above 50 mph


Sounds like front differential or front drive axle issues. Check the front differential gear oil then take er' to the dealership before you end up spending a bunch of $. Most people change their oil frequently in the engine but forget about flushing the transmission fluid and changing oil in the front and rear differentials. I have three Ford 4X4s. Two which really get used hard. The 93 has 311K miles and still runs excellent. Trans and differentials get a fluid change every 25K miles and moble one synthetic engine oil changes every 5k miles.
