Not sure if this where to post... 1994 Ford Universal van 302 85k original miles. I do not drive this very often and now I don't at all as it drifts too much to be safe. Just a glance away from the road and one could be on the shoulder or the wrong lane! Two hands on the wheel at all times and a crosswind is brutal. I have not investigated too much yet as I wanted to get ideas of possibilities from all my friends out here. Brakes are fresh and tires new and properly aired. Power steering fluid correct with no visible leaking. Well cared for vehicle and also noticed that it may have a vacuum leak but have not pulled the dog house off yet to inspect engine (when accelerating the fan blower will default to defrost until the accelerator is let off then back to where it was set to blow). One suggestion I have is the steering gear but not sure what I should look for or a test. It is not leaking.
