SOURCE: 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.

Hi there!

I have the same problem but i finally had it fixed.
Your front rim is warped. Have it aligned. Balancing alone would not do the trick as this would only balance the wheel on its vertical axis. (assuming they were able to balance it properly)

Jack the front end up and turn the wheel.. Have a screwdriver or any thing that can serve as a guide with the rim, turn the wheel and if it touches the screw at some point of the turn , then the wheel is misaligned. A new stock rim would cost too much so have it aligned with a good machine shop.

To give you an idea of what im talking about:

There's also a chance that the fork fluids would cause this. Fluid levels should be equal. (less likely)

Hope this helps!
I'd appreciate a feedback!

SOURCE: Minn Kota power drive trolling motor will not

There is a good chance that he control board is bad. This is a common problem with these units. I have replaced my control board twice.. When the control board goes out, the some function of the unit will not work correctly while other functions work fine. The first time mine went out, the prop motor would not work. The last time the board went out, the unit would only steer right.

When I push the handle to travel forward the left track move with little power and the right track seems to have all of its power. If I go in reverse the machine will speed up from low to hi but not going...

You should have one hydraulic pump that supplies pressure to a valve body that controls which motor gets the pressure. Check the valve operation to the left motor to ensure that it is opening correctly. Have the left motor tested as it may be passing oil internally from wear. If it goes backwards with both motors working ok but not forwards then it points to the left forward valve not working properly.
