My car is a 97' Thunderbird LX. It has 130,000 miles and is a 4.6 liter V8 engine. I bought it 3 days ago from the dealership used and it runs like a champ but it of course has issues. Thank you to everyone that helps me or takes the time to read it.
1. When I turn the wheel it squeks sometimes so I was thinking I may need a new steering column.?
2. This also coincides with the first problem. The steering wheel "locks" left unless I have it turned right. So when I apply the breaks the car, if the steering wheel is straight, will turn left into on coming traffic so I have to level out the car myself to counteract the "lock left effect".
In all I am wondering if I get a new steering column this would fix both problems.
P.S. When I am turning I have to bring the wheel back to center manually. Does anyone else have to do that?
