Steering Wheel does not return to center after turn

Car Trouble Symptoms
Steering wheel does not return to center after the car turn from a curve.
Possible Cause of Car Trouble
Problem on the Alignment of Front Wheel
Explaining why the steering wheel does not return after turn is purely technical and requires knowledge about the car front ends and the wheel alignment.

But nevertheless we will try to explain the problem as easy as we can. The idea of wheel alignment has something to do with the setting of the various angle of the wheel. The alignments of the wheel consist of different setting depending on the car model and for this particular problem of steering wheel which does not return to center involve the “caster” and the “steering axis inclination”. If both setting is not met it will cause problem with the steering returnability and the steering will not return easily.

What to do?
If the car encountered this kind of problem then the remedy is to align the wheel. This usually fixes the problem base on our experience. Bring your car to a tire shop have an alignment job on the car.
