Question about Chevrolet Celebrity
Local repair shop suggest steering column bearings are worn, cannot find used steering column.
Well, first of all, the odds are the tilt section can be tightened back up without replacing anything. There are 3 bolts that get loose over time.
Second, if you really do need another column, any A body GM car built between 85 and 90 will work. That includes Pontiac 6000, Buick Century, and Olds Cutlass Cierra. The only real difference is the steering wheel which you would not have to change.

SOURCE: steering wheel column
there is a couple of rods on the left side of the colum.
take the panel of, put the key on the ignition. switch on and see wich rod is moving and thats the one that goes to a box type switch.
that switch is the problem, either is loose or faulty, if it wiggles try to tighten it up, if is tight then the switch is faulty and you will have to replace it, you can find it at any parts store

The best thing to do is to buy a Chilton,s repair manual. It has step by step procedures. You can get one at most auto parts stores. They coast anywhere from $10-$30 dollars.

Without taking the tilt mechanism off you can only reach 2 of the 3 bolts. If you use 1/4 in. socket on 1/4 in drive with 6 in extension you can just get at the left bolt. If you remove the tilt spring you can get to the bottom bolt. To remoce tilt spring retainer use standard Phillips.

When they did the alignment it's possible that they used a tool that locks the steering wheel straight while it's on the alignment rack.If they put too much pressure on the wheel when they used the steering wheel seat lock tool it may have stressed you tilt lock mech causing it not to lock where you want it.Hope this helps

Everyone always gravitates to the suspension but folks, it's 99% sure that it is the EVO. The EVO is the sensor built into the steering column that senses movement of the steering wheel then controls the power steering pump accordingly. When it goes out (which is all too frequently) you get sloppy and loose steering at lower speeds and it does tighten up a bit on the highway at higher speeds. This is the way it is supposed to work but when it fails it's downright scary trying to keep the truck straight on a narrow two lane road!
