How do you make your car’s steering lighter?
I’ve noticed recently my car’s steering has felt tighter. I’d like it to feel looser, so I don’t have to pull on the steering wheel. Is there any way to make your car’s steering lighter?
Answer provided by
Tight steering is the worst! Tight or heavy steering is when the steering wheel doesn’t turn as smoothly as it should. If your wheel is feeling tight, there are several ways to make your steering feel lighter:
- Inflate your front tires
- Try new tires
- Take it into a repair shop to make sure its properly aligned
- Check the power steering fluid
- Check your belts
As most steering wheel repairs are best for a professional to complete, consider taking your car to a trusted mechanic for assistance. They can diagnose the issue much faster, especially after test driving it.
