If it drifts while driving, it needs a front end alignment. or a possible tire problem. go from there !! it may have other issues. but get it aligned. possible causes-- bad tires, tie rod ends worn out, bad ball joint etc,

2003 350z why does the car moves alot like if its slipping/drifting specially if i turn to the right. i cant go more than 30 mps plz help!!!

instead of you fixing what probably is not broke , take it to a front end specialist for a proper diagnosis of the problem
to start with , having replace only one side is a problem in itself as that will alter the rear end alignment
after that is done , get a front end alignment
good practice is what ever is wrong on one side will be the same on the other side

My car is drifting on the road aspecially when im over 80 km per hour what is the probleme

A few things could do this

- underinflated tyres (causes soft sidewalls)
- badly adjusted wheel alignment (insufficient toe-in)
- worn tie rod ends
- loose steering rack end ball joints
- loose lug nuts
- loose front wheel bearings

After checking the first, this is safety critical, so take it to a front suspension mech. Mercedes are not complicated underneath, so you don't need a dealer unless you have a warranty.

How do I fix my rear wheel that is bent inward? I was towed out of a snow drift and had to connect to what I think is a stabilizer rod, but I'm unsure.

It appears that the tow operator was not competent and has bent you suspension during the tow operation. Take it top an accredited suspension shop as it may only require a new suspension part and a rear wheel aligment to fix it.

I have a 2000 toyota Echo and in left turns the steering stops working and the car drifts or slides until i press on the brake and it regains steering control. Whats going on? This happens only occa

have the front end steering joints and suspension checked by an accredited front end specialist. Check the wheel bearings and cv joints for serviceability. Although you say it is only occasionally it is a critical issue as on any occasion it may place you or others in harms way.

My 03 pt started handling poorly in the front end..feels unsafe, like wandering on the road..suspension feels normal..checked fluids and there fine..engine light stays on

I had the same issue with my lincoln LS. You may need an alignment. Many shops off the service and the work is usually an hour or so. This will help with drift feelings and the wondering you mentioned.

Good luck and be safe

Power steering drifts over uneven pavement

Lift the front of the pickup and try to shake the wheel. If it moves then a part (a bearing, a bolt or a pivot) of the front suspension is loose or worn out. 
If you can't feel it moving tell to another person to move the steering wheel while you hold the wheel. If the movement isn't exact and immediate the problem is in the steering box. For this specific tools are required - it's better to take it to a repair shop, you definitely wouldn't want to gamble with your safety

Car drifting to right (steering wheel not centered after alignment)

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.
