    What you're describing sounds like a loose power steering belt, or maybe loose power steering pump, check your fluid,look for leaks ,shit like that. Now you say it turns right all by itself if you don't have your hands on the wheel ? While accelerating ? Depending how hard & how "sharp" the wheel jerks from your hands , I'd almost say that you are in 4 wheel drive, it wouldn't be the first time its happened, if you have manual locks,check them, make sure transfer is in 2H, Don't rely on that glowing green light always being there or always being right, for auto locking, shift on the fly, the solenoid,accuator, whatever you want to call it , have one serious flaw, when they go out about 85% of the time they fail in mid-position, meaning a locking hub, a locking diff can be left in an "engaged " position,or disengaged or even a partial engagement i.e.; Your right hub is engaged while your left one is free spooling ,thats why its trying to do donuts on its own, but start with the belt adjustment / inspection....:cool:
