To clarify hydroplaning is your car basically leaving the road and riding on water or floating. this can only happen in wet conditions. I assume your car does it all the time? feels like it wants to drift all over the place? you need to check all your steering/suspension components.have you had alignment done? air pressure at specs?

Tracking off when i drive


Hydroplaning is caused by the tyres not having the ability to get rid of water between the tyre and road, low tread depth, excessive speed in wet conditions, this will make the steering feel very vague. If your unsure of the steering, you need to take it for an alignment check. Get some decent tyres on the steering wheels at least.

I have a 2000 plymouth neon and for some reason when i drive it in the rain and go 20mph or faster, it starts to hydroplane on me. what would cause that problem?? it has good tires on it .


I experienced the same problem with my 95' Neon. I also had what I thought were good tires on my Neon. Although I had lots of tread, I still was a nervous wreck when it rained. Obviously one of the problems with smaller and lighter cars is it's resistance,(or lack of) to hydroplaning. I spoke to a friend who owned a tire shop and he recommended a different tire that he had used on numerous occasions in just such a scenario. I had them installed and could not believe the difference first time it rained. I could drive through water running across the roads during heavy downpours at highway speeds and it would cut right through with minimal to no loss of control. It was like night and day. It doesn't have to be the most expensive tire on the market either, just the proper tread pattern for water evacuation. If you check on ( http://www.tirerack.com/ ) you can choose driving conditions etc for your preferences and they will recommend a better tire, and you can see the price as well.

I cant find p175 80 r 13 tires for my reliant 1985 ..what do i do, they are making them as trailer tires now


I'd go with 185/70/13. Speedo will read 62 mph when doing 60 mph, but on that year it shouldn't affect anything else enough to be worried about it. Tire will be slightly wider, which will make steering feel a little more responsive, as in pay attention for first while when driving, it will feel like it turns a little quicker when steering wheel moved, so just pay attention a little more in beginning until your used to it, but most people won't even notice. Also make sure you get the proper feel if in snow/slush, or heavy rains, due to wider tire, may tend to hydroplane slightly more. Check with your installer, and they should be able to advise according to your driving conditions.

Is there an adjustment for the steering box on my truck. feels like i am steering a boat. just had pitman arm replaced and front end aligned, still feels loose?


Yes, the box is adjustable. The front end guy can do that adjustment. I hate the condition that you describe. Are you using Light Truck (LT) tires. Car tires have softer sidewalls and also contribute. I have a Mercedes, also and it steered WORSE than my van. Van had truck tires, put tires with more sidewall plies on Mercedes and was VERY happy, tire guys thought I was nuts, but this issue causes driving stress.

make sure the return hose for the power steering is good and the drive belt is good if the car has over 40,000 Miles on it i would change the belt as well Happy Holidays as always wish you the best of luck Michigan Man.

2000 Neon--when i drive in rain or snow or any bump I go over my car loses a bit of control, what I mean is it just feels like my tires are no longer tracking.


Have you had a professional check your struts for being weak? Have tires inspected as well for tread depth/wear. I know my 95 neon seemed to hydroplane in wet weather and felt out of control quite often as well, with good tires, but poor tread design for the Neon,but I put new, different tires on it, and I could fly through water puddles after that, and no pull from steering wheel, as well as stay in line during slushy/snow conditions as well.

There is a rattle or creaking sound in the front driver's side wheel area. It's not really bad all of the time, but it is much worse in damp, rainy weather. When I go over rough roads, I can hear it and...


take it to a goodyear tire store or a other tire and brake store. midas where ever that offer free brake inspection. the bolts might be loose that holds the caliper on. don't let them fix it, just get a writen estimate. they want to find the problem so they can fix it. the dealer wants you to go away till the warrantee is out!

Weak humm when driving over 35kmh.


possibly a wheel bearing or tyre noise from badly worn tyres
while driving in a straight line and noise is present change lanes or shimmy car left and right if noise gets worse or better wheel bearing problem
also if noise gets worse in normal town driving speed and gets less at higher freeway speeds check your wheel bearings
