What causes steering wheel not to return when turning on curve?


What causes steering wheel not to return? When the car turns from a curve and the steering wheels does not return to center it means that there is problem with alignment of the front wheel.

There are several possible cause of the problem on the alignment of front wheel and 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 you encountered an steering wheel that does not return after turning on a curve here's what you do, bring the car to a tire shop and have the it aligned. Most of the time base on experience it will fix the problem.
