Tip & How-To about Chrysler PT Cruiser

Noise

Our wheel wells have all been plastic for years..and amplify sound of road ..wheels..suspension components etc..just like an ovation guitar..
$30 ..SOLUTION>>..spray chip stop fibrated (sound deadening) tar/rubber spray onto the plastic wheel wells..do the same with firewall..and under side of vehicle..this will also protect from chip damage and rust..a sound tech with the movie industry in Toronto could not believe the dramatic effect..get about 3 cans from Canadian Tire in Canada or your auto stuff place near u..
NOTE>>.. wear plastic glove and old shirt to keep spray off your fingers and arms..
This works for all vehicles and is about the cheapest upgrade one can perform...be careful of paint..stuff rubs off/or use cleaning fluid..use piece of cardboard to keep spray off stuff you do not want to spray ..like paint/tires/muffler..
ps Shell gas rocks (good mileage/power/cleaning..nitrogen enriched..)
Esso gas ..has a lot of sulphur..cabbies in Toronto say not as much mileage
and dirties engine up some..bob

Pulls left


then hold steering wheel to the right more <shrugs>

this on a flat road or a high crowned road?

well since you can't crawl underneath to inspect the affected steering/ suspension components of your vehicle, some shops do perform that inspection For Free as part of an oil change or other service; just ask for it. Some alignment shops will do that also

1999 rav4 rumbling rubbing noise and feel when cranking wheel in reverse


A couple points here:
it is probably just the tire rubbing on the inside of a wheel well. Have a tire shop or mechanic check for wear of suspension components. Excessive wear on suspension arm bushings, ball joints, struts, etc. could cause "slop" or excessive travel forward and back which is not normal.
Itis also good practice to NEVER turn to steering all the way to the stops in any four or all-wheel drive vehicle.

95 eclipse wheel shakes at 60 and all over the road


Could be a tie rod end or ball joint or other suspension component.
I would get two estimates for repairs.
