Maybe your front end alignment is off?
Measure the distance across the front of the front wheels and across the rear of the front wheels.
On this cart the measurements should be almost exactly the same.
Measure carefully as the measurement needs to be exact.
If the measurements are not the same,adjust one or both tierods to make the distance between the front and rear of the front wheels the same.
TIP:AVOID sharp turns on pavement which will also accelerate tire wear.
Most power steering units have two adjusters--one one the lower end for main bearing adjustment, but the one on top (just like manual steering boxes) is all you usually need to adjust. With front end jacked up and engine running adjust screw inward until drag is felt in steering wheel with wheels pointing straight ahead, then loosen just a touch until no bind is felt as steering is turned back and forth through center of steering.
When parts in the front end get worn out your adjustments in the front end change from there original settings giving you steering problems and changing steering wheel position. If you want it straight the correct way to do it is Get the front end checked out. Any worn parts should be replaced then have alignment done. While doing alignment there last step should be to center the steering wheel.
There are several things that could exist here with pulling to the right. Check air pressure, jack up front wheels off the ground and roll them by hand and see if they rotate with about the same pressure as wheel bearings may need adjustment or replaced. Check all your front end steering components and linkage for loose play. If it has a straight axle the camber/caster may possibly be adjusted which if off can also create this problem. I would check these out in sequence as I have listed them. Good luck!
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.
on the front wheel , there is a screw that you can adjust ,, that will adjust the tracking of the front wheel, the rear wheel is stationary , once you have the new belt on, locate that screw,, and just click the switch as you adjust it,, once adjusted, you will see that it tracks straight and won't fall off
was your car in a wreck since you have own it? that would be the only way anyone could bend steering or suspension parts.if your tires are leaning out on top, it would be a part called"lower control arm assembly", if you stand in front of your car with the steering wheel straight,and your tires are pointing in on each side,or pointed out instead of straight,that would be a "tie rod " there is an inner tie rod and an outer tie rod end. you need to take your car to a shop that does alignments,and have them tell you exactly what is wrong,you can even get lower control arm assemblies from a salvage yard.but do yourself a favor and don't take your car to a MONROE or MIDAS type shop,they are only there to sell and make commissions! Find a normal shop that the owner is the mechanic.
Barring anything broken or bent on the front steering linkage, the tires can be adjusted by removing the tie rod end from the control arm of each wheel. The tie rod end should be threaded into the tie rod. Turn the end in or out, depending on which way you need the tire to adjust. Do this procedure on both front wheels with the steering wheel in the straight forward position.
Hope this helps...
