Q: Front weels will not turn after hitting curb

asked by on

Car slid into a curb an the steering wheel will not turn the front tires
My car has an automatic transmission.

As with any accident that damages the steering control, you will need to not try and drive the vehicle until you have the vehicle fully inspected to see why you lost steering control. You may have broken the tie rods at each wheel or damaged the steering gear. With the steering problem you may also have damaged the suspension in the front end and should have it checked for bent control arms and struts.
