Hi there. I’m unsure of the problem you are describing. If it has to do with your steering not reacting to you turning the wheel, then you may have a problem with your rack and pinion. Also, your steering contains gears that become worn over time and would need to be inspected as well. I’d suggest having a certified mechanic sent by YourMechanic come to your home or office to correctly diagnose your steering issue more precisely in person.
