    serious steering issue

    so i change my spark plug wires and oil to day, every thing was fine and dandy, so later i decide to got for a ride, so im cruising, and i notice my car yanking over to the left hard. With the wheel straight, it just shot left, and to make it worse, the steering wheel continued to go left with out me touching it. i dont know what it could be but im going to see if a wheel alignment will help, any suggestions?

    Sounds like you may have messed up something in the steering shaft. Check in that area and see if you didnt knock a bolt loose or something.
