I have been meaning to ask about this for a while but kept forgeting about it. Ill try to explain this as best i can so heres goes. Whenever i turn to the left it turns VERY easy. Somtimes it actually feels like it wants to keep steering to the left by itself if that makes sense. It steers fine turning right. There isnt any odd noises or anything and the power steering fluid is full. Since im used to driving my other escort i always forget the steering does this when im driving and end up almost turning too sharp for simple corners. I have checked everything i can think of and i cannot find anything causing this.

Assuming that your tires are properly inflated, and are the same kind/size left and right...........
My guess woujld be that you have either camber or caster out of specs. I think this can be cause by someone installing a strut with the top piece being turned 90 or 180 degrees away from where it should have been. ...Or, installing a strut and having the camber be off of specs., due to the spindle-to-strut angle being wrong.
And in addition to caster and camber, you should ensure the toe-in is proper; though toe-in being out of spec wont cause un-equal steering response to turns.
Anything that changes the camber or caster settings is likely to move the toe-in out of 'true' also.
