Top 6 Steering Problems in Vehicles
Even though these steering problems aren’t universal to every vehicle brand, in general – the following are the most common…
- Steering wheel shaking or vibrating while driving …which can happen for various reasons including worn out brakes and alignment concerns
- Stiff steering …often due to fluid levels
- Fluid leaks …which can be coming from your steering’s hydraulic fluid due to faulty seals, O-rings or crimps
- Off-centre steering wheel …caused, most often – from alignment issues
- Pulling or drifting steering …which, once again, can be due to your wheel alignment
- Squealing …due to belt problems
We understand it can be difficult to tell one steering concern from another. Which is why we are here to help with your Kelowna steering repairs through our diagnostic services.
