I have a 1993 Toyota Corolla DX 1.8 liter four cylinder with 340,000 miles, the valves were re-seated and re-machined 150,000 miles ago. The main cylinder block was never re-machined. Main question being vibration through the steering column until about 5 miles. What may be contributing to this problem?

Vibration at speed.

The vibration could be front tires out of balance, flat spotting or out of round, bad front bearings or worn front suspension. I would start by checking the tires out.

I agree, tires most likely. But it could be a slight misfire, good Denso iridium spark plugs last upward of 100,000 miles, but even they have their limits. If it is a minor vibration, and quits after 5 miles, then relax, no worries. With 340,000 it has served you well and can go even further, with proper oil changes, fluid checks and a slight vibration that goes away in 5 miles is of no concern. But if you mean a serious vibration, have motor mounts checked
