What would cause the steering to feel like it's sticking when turning to the right in a curve?

What would cause the steering to feel like it's sticking or a rubber band feeling when turning to the right? It seems to do it more when going straight for a bit then turn to the right in curves or whatever, I also checked the power steering fluid and it's full, does anyone know what it could be?

Under-inflated tyres. Pump up your tyres. Another thing is it could be is out of alignment. So, it might need a wheel alignment. While getting a wheel alignment, have the mechanic check the suspension bushes and control arm bushes.

What would cause the front suspension of my 4x4 to feel like it is riding on the edges of the tires going around a curve and constantly moving steering wheel from side to side?


I'd have a few things checked out by a pro since it sounds like this can be dangerous. 1st is your front Sway bar and bushings, have your rack and pinion checked out by a pro. Also check your wheel hub bearing assemblies. Final thought, make sure your 4wheel drive is NOT engaged, should be in 2 wheel hi. If in 4 wheel drive while on pavement, all turns will feel squirley and isn't good for your drive train.

I believe It is NOT a tire problem or an alignment problem. It is a gear problem, somewhere in the steering system. It also not the steering box, we replaced this already. There are other gears, like the...


There's a pressure sensor in the power steering pressure line, this sends info to the PCM. Find and unplug the electrical connector to it, some times these fail and send bad info to the PCM and affect the feel to the steering. If that seems to control the symtoms, replace the sensor or leave it disconnected [ the steering will be stiff when low speed turning if left unplugged ] .

Very hard to go into corners, it seems to fight me while I want it to go into curves. 


If the problem is that when you turn the handlebars you feel as if it is almost locked into wanting to go straight your steering head bearings are dented and need replacing.
The denting happens when the steering head bearings not adjusted and loose causing hammering effect denting the bearing races.

Feel shake in the floor and steering wheel at around 70 mph and a slight turn on the steering wheel you can feel it a little more. what parts could cause this? already had the wheel balances checked.


Tierod ends. Bad belt in a tire. If you have a bumpy brake pedal, a warped rotor has enougn play to bounce against pads. Also Hub bearings were known to fail after 35,000 miles.

For Hub bearings there may be a Service Bulletin, but your vehicle is going on 10 years old. Usually the side that shakes the most on a opposite curve is the problem side. As in left curve the outside right tire is spinning slightly faster, right side curve its the left side spinning faster.

Where s the power steering top up resivoir on my honda civic 1400 imagine??


Follow your fan belts. One of the belts operates the power steering unit. The resivor should be right there with the power steering unit. It is best to check the level when motor is cold. If it has gone completely dry then you will need to get the air out of it after adding fluid. To do this you add the fluid then turn the steering wheel all the way to the right and then back to the left several times. After the steering wheel feels smooth while turning it then you are good to go. Recheck the fluid first after you have turned the steering wheel back and forth and top it off to the mark on the level stick. Hope this helped, raz
