The full answer can not be answered until a make and model of vehicle is given. However, if the steering was recently worked on and you are having issues with the system, then take it in to the previous mechanic to have them look at it again. If you would like an independent technician to come to your location and test drive the vehicle for you, a certified mechanic from YourMechanic can diagnose your car’s steering issue to have this problem resolved.
