An alignment problem would not cause a vibration unless the alignment has worn the tires badly, therefore the tires would cause the vibration. If the tires are okay, have the drive axles checked, because a worn drive axle can cause vibration.

The car pulling to the right when the steering wheel is released is most likely an alignment problem, but could also be a "radial tire pull". Normally a rotation will correct that.

An alignment problem will NOT cause your wheels to bend. Normally, only an impact could cause that -- like pot holes, curbs, etc.

.

this could be due to oil sludge. this is a common problem for 2003 solara. make sure to change your oil often.

Try replacing the tires! Apparently, Solaras suspension is very sensitive to tires with bad belts, bumps, flat spots, etc. Mine was shaking between 40 and 70 mph--replaced the front tires and it's smooth as silk no

try getting your tires balanced

A car's steering wheel will vibrate when driving if the car's alignment needs to be adjusted.

It is the engine that is vibrating and it is just being felt in the steering wheel. Can be a vacuum leak, or miss in the engine.

Normally it is a tire out of balance. Can also be a bent wheel.

Adjusting the steering wheel on a 1998 Toyota Corolla is easy. All you have to is find the latch at the bottom and push in to adjust the wheel.

You possibly have warped brake rotors on the front. Or Bad Wheel Bearings.

could be a blockage in your fuel lines.

Normally this is caused by a tire out of balance or a bent wheel.

Because the front rotors are warped. You might want to replace the rotors or resurface it.

You take it off just like any other steering wheel

In the steering wheel fluid reservoir, passenger side of engine. Add dextron transmission fluid to it not "steering wheel fluid"

A steering wheel is hard to remove by hand. It can be removed with a tool called the steering wheel remover found at local auto shops.

If other things vibrate as well as the steering wheel you might have a damaged motor/transmission mount.

Have the wheels balanced. Get a 'front end alignment' done on your vehicle.

may be due to out of balanced wheels, simply you do wheel balancing. Or otherwise worn out tyre

To remove a steering wheel, a person will need a steering wheel puller from an auto part store, from there after the airbag is removed, place the tool over the steering wheel and follow its directions. It will pull the steering wheel off by applying pressure to the middle and pulling everything else up.

You need to get a special tool, steering wheel puller. If you have it, disconnect the battery. Remove the steering wheel air bag (there are two screws holding it in place). Disconnect the bag harness. Remove the center steering wheel nut. Using the puller remove the steering wheel. Installation is reversed to removal.

If you have tilt steering, there should be a switch or little pull lever on the left side of the steering wheel, but i havent had a tilt in any of my Paseo's xP
