I have Toyota 2006 sienna and front right wheel shakes or wobbles ... I have new front tires and balanced.. but still wobbles a little...please any thoughts?


Hi Scott.
Try switching the wheels from left to right side and see if the wobble goes with it.
If not, look for a worn tie rod end or other suspension component.
If wobble goes to left side, look for bent rim.
Cheers.

Fuse box making a crackling sound


Hi there.
1st thing is a fuse box dont make cracking sounds ,if you turn it on and the cracking sounds then put your hand around the back of the fuse box and touch the relays and you might find 1 of them is doing the noise you can hear,or any thing around there as you cannot get a elect shock of any part except the sparkplugs or leads so its quite OK to touch any part in the car.
But it sounds like a relay ,same type of noise when the indecators are turning left or right..

Let me know how you go.

How to do a wheel alignment


nearly impossible but there are some things that you can do to reduce tyre wear.. 1---place the wheels in the straight ahead position. Using a spirit level place it vertical across the front rims touching only the rim top and bottom . adjust to achieve the bubble just touching on the outer line. That should give you about 1/2 to 1 degree camber. next measure with a tape the distance between the left and right rims 1/2 way up on the front of the rim. Record this measurement. Repeat the measuring at the back of the front rims at the same level as the front measurement was taken Adjust the tie rod ends evenly until the front measurement is anout 1/8 to 1/4 " smaller than the rear measurement. This is the toe in/ out measurement. The caster adjustment you will need a caster angle gauge. They are available and they stick on the hub center. and measure the difference in degrees from full left to full right turn. It need to be about 1 to 1&1/2 degrees positive.. It would be cheaper on the tyres to have the alignment done professionally and a sight quicker.

I hit a hole backing out of a driveway and after i heard a noise in the front end from hitting a hole the front tire started to wobble and pull to the left, something is wrong please tell me what


This could be a few things, first try switching a rear tire to the front and see if that helps, you may have bent the rim but you would need to look at it and see is the rim is bent then look at the tie rod end to see if its bent, you could have bent the strut or lower control arm too. i would take a look at the tie rod end and see if its bent, here the thing, you say it wobbles and pulls, a tie rod end or strut or control arm will make the car pull but not wobble, a wobble would be caused by a bent rim or tire witth a bubble and this can make the car pull, tire putting the spare tire on and see if it still pulls and wobbles, if it doesnt then you know its the rim or tire, hope this helps.

My car is making noise in staring as well as in balance rod could u please find me a solution of this. and secondly can i use R 13 tyre and rim in Alto vxr car, but in manual guide r 12 is recomended


Noise in starting check the starter , the starter motor for play , the starter pinion. The balacne rod make a noise due to the play after wear off due to bad road conditions.It can be replaced or tightened,
Please stick on with the correct size designed as being a small car the effficiency depends on the designed size.

I WAS WANDERING WHAT OTHER RIMS FIT MY VOLVO 740 1988 BESIDES VOLVO RIMS GM? OR WHAT SOMEONE PLZ HELP BEFORE I BUY RIMS THAT DONT FIT


How many do you need? I have three Volvo rims that I took off my 88 Volvo. I had a flat tire and damaged one rim. I replaced all four rims with new generic ones, which was cheaper than buying one volvo rim. Let me know where you are located and see if we can work something out.

Those Wheels are putting a Strain on the Pump. The Suzuki has not Compensated for the Installation of Larger Tires and Wheels and the Pump will only Handle the Factory Wheels. Notice how Light they are compared to the New ones. Not a Lot that can be done about this Problem.
