Q: Turning All The Way

asked by on

When I'm driving straight and turn in either direction, the wheel/steering wheel turns all the way in either direction I turn

My car has 100000 miles.

Hi there. If you are having problems steering your vehicle, I would strongly recommend having a professional mechanic complete a steering wheel inspection, so they can pinpoint why you’re experiencing these symptoms. It’s possible that the steering column pinion gear or other steering component is damaged.
