The best hand position for straight ahead steering is to think of the steering wheel as a clock. The best position would be to have the hands on the 3 and the 9, which is what people are taught when learning how to drive.

The camshaft position sensor is right under the power steering pump. Remove the power steering pump to access the sensor.

You can adjust the steering box some. Or possible ball joint problems. If the problem is lurches and surges in the steering (can feel like loose idler arm, loose ball joints, etc.), one common cause is a faulty steering position sensor. This $60 sensor at the base of the steering column (inside the vehicle) tells the variable assist power steering how fast you are turning the steering wheel.

Variable ratio (VR) steering means that the ratio between the steering wheel and the wheels (tires) is not constant. Depending on the position of the steering wheel the car wheels may be more or less sensitive to steering wheel rotation. Practically, when you drive straight (steering wheels in neutral position) the steering ratio is about 2 times higher compare to steering ration when you are parking (steering wheels is away from neutral position). Variable ratio rack and pinion is used in VR steering. It was originally invented in Australia and later improved in the USA. Variable ratio rack and pinion software is used for calculation of the complex tooth surface of the vr rack.

Steering wheels are generally locked from the ignition switch. It is supposed to lock only in the OFF position. If you steering locks in any other key position, you likely have a problem with the linkage rod or cable that connects the ignition lock cylinder to the steering column. You have to take apart the dash and possibly the steering column to fix this.

Your lock is broke, It was probably forced up or down while in its locked position and it detached. It's also possible for the tilt assembly connection bolts to have loosened over time.

The power steering on a vehicle can be jammed due to a rack and pinion issue in the steering column. Another possible cause could be that the power steering fluid may be low and the power steering pump may be going out.

It is possible that there is a wire that is frayed or cut some where in the stering colum. or it is being pinched to much when the wheel is in the up postion. if it becomes too serious have it checked by an atuo repair tech. by: wolverine

Turn the steering wheel as far as you can to the right, then turn the key into the on position.

Start the engine, and turn the steering wheel as far right as possible, and then as farleft as possible. Keep doing this until you hear no more air in the system. Drive it around for a day or so, and repeat the procedure.
