    van also drifting to left when not holding steering wheel

  • Anonymous Mar 28, 2014

    I have to constantly turn the steering wheel left or right. Seems like no "free play" in the wheel. Car does not always veer to left or right as an alignment issue, but when I drive at highway speeds, I must always keep moving the wheel. Car drifts to one side, I adjust, and then have to adjust the other way.

First make sure that your tires are properly inflated.

if that doesn't fix it, it could be the tires and the way to tell is to swap the front tires and if the pull changes direction, it's the tires.

If the pull doesn't change direction, it's alignment or a damaged/bent suspension component.

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

Unable to repair code C1278

This is a steering wheel angle 1 and 2 fault. You could have an alignment problem, throwing your steering wheel off center causing this code. Take it to a shop and see if I am right, Check the steering wheel to see if it stops in the center when you drive in a straight line and stop. if not the alignment is off. I hope this has been helpful.

When I turn the wheel, the car will go towards that direction but the steering doesn't bring itself back to center as it used to before I got an alignment. When I am on a perfectly flat road, the

if the tech knew your steering box was loose i dont understand why he didnt attempt to adjust it for you.some vehicles are adjustable and some need to have the steering gear box replaced when loose. the vehicle should re center itself upon letting go of the wheel. there is an issue that has gone undiagnosed. you could have tire issues (unevenly worn due to driving on them with bad alignment for long period of time) low tire pressure could cause this too. to test your alignment find a good flat round (with no crown) let go of the wheel while driving (keep your hand there so you can quickly re grab the wheel) and see if the car pulls one way or another. if the road has a crown to it the car may drift some but this is normal in a parking lot or flat road it should go in a perfectly straight line. also over tightening the steering gear box could caus this issue. my recommendation to you would to be to research a more reputable/highly recommended shop to take another look at it for you. it sounds to me that both shops you went to may do alignments but might not be trained supension/steering techs. in other words theres something going on they dont know about

Does my car need an alignment? On freeway, my car ''drifts'' (not pulls) and feels like I'm driving on ice. I'm always correcting my steering.

If your wheels are bad enough, they can wobble and cause what you're experiencing. The should be uneven wear on your tires as well.
