Yes there is a Nice, professional fix for your issue. You will need to call an autoparts store, or take the plug to a hardware store and figure out the thread pitch and plug diameter. If you give me the application I can look this information up for you. HEre is the source for the kit, its very easy to do, and if you take your time, the fix can be done without damage to engine. The kit will come with instruction on how to use it, however the KEY thing is to use wheel bearing grease, and constantly clean your tools after a 1/4 turn or so, to keep metal shavings entering the cylinder to a minum. Also what you need to do is change your spark plug changins tactics. When you change a spark plug first off all the engine must be cold. Allow it to cool 6-8 hours before removing spark plugs. Secondly always hand tighten the plugs before using a ratchet. Last but not least- use a torque wrench to torque the plugs to spec. Following these 3 steps you'll never have an issue. I can walk you through step by step once you get the kit. I use them allot at work, and I assure you that they are the highest quality on the market.

I replaced the tires on my 2003 mitsubishi eclipse 2 months ago & the front two have worn to the wires on both sides. a week ago there was still some tread on them. why could this be happening?

1. What brand and model of tire was fitted?

2. Please describe the wear pattern on the front tires in more detail. For example is the excessive tread wear.....
A. Right across the face of the tread on each tire or
B. On the outside edges of the tread on each tire or
C. on the inside edges of the tread on each tire or
D. on both sides of the tread but not on the center section of the tread on both tires.
B is normally caused by incorrect toe setting - toe in
C is also normally caused by incorrect toe setting - toe out
D is normally caused by tire pressure set way too low.

Faulty steering and suspension components can also cause abnormal tire wear for any component that affects the wheel alignment settings.
If you can provide a better description of the tire wear on each front tire you will get a better answer.

Noisy tires

Hi I'm Peter, most of the time when you have high noise from your tires it is related to the tread design. The more aggressive the tread the noisier it will be so if you have all terrain or mud/snow tires they will be a lot louder than a highway tread. Talk to your favorite tire dealer and tell them you want a really quite tread. Unless you are doing some serious off roading a quite highway tread is fine. I can take my 2 wheel drive pickup a lot of places some people are scared to take their 4 wheel drives. Smooth and quite is the way to go. Nice car !

How to remove spark plugs?

You need a special 1/4 inch drive deep well socket that is the proper size, a 1/4 extension and a 1/4 drive handle. The helpful guy or gal at the counter at your auto parts store can tell you the size when you get your plugs. Righter-tightly --- lefty-loosey. Be careful to not cross thread the plugs. One ruined hole will wipe out any savings you may otherwise hope to realize.

How to replace outer tie rod

There is a cotter pin that you remove first. Unbolt the tie rod end to where it attaches to the vehicle. You will the need to use a tie rod end separtor to separate it from the knuckle. It is a U kind of tool that you hammer in and it will separate it for you. You will understand what I mean when you see the tool. Next you take two wrenches, one that fits on the flat part of the tie rod end itself ( close to the nut you will see one the treaded bar it is attached to. Take the other wrench and turn the nut on the treaded part of the bar that the tir rod end is attached to. Loosen the bolt, it just needs to be loose so you can turn the tie rod end around. Now that it is loose "unscrew the tie rod end from the treaded bar. Remember to count how many times you turn the tie rod end so you turn it the same amount of turns when you put the new one on. Reassemble in the oposite order remebering to turn that tie rod end the same amount of turns. Make sure that the bolt attached to the treaded bar that the tie rod end screws on is good and tight against the tie rod end so it stays put. I would still think about getting an alighnment and would replace both right and left tie rod ends. I hope this helped and good luck

When roads have even a dusting of snow on them and i barely touch the brakes to slow and stop, the front ones instantly lock up and pull me to the right. I immediately take my foot off the brake when this...

There are a number of possibilities here. First thing to do is make sure the new rear brakes are properly adjusted. If they are too loose they will not engage when you push gently on the pedal and the front brakes will be doing all the work. This could easily cause you to slide. There is a self-adjusting mechanism in the rear but these can become inoperative over time. The brakes can be adjusted manually.
Second, how much tread is on the front tires? As tread wears down the tire becomes less able to handle snow. Does one tire have less tread than the other? Tires have a wear bar built into them so look at the tread and see if you can find a rubber bar that extends across the tread. The more visible it is the less likely there is enough tread to handle snow. It may still be legal to use the tire but save it for summer. If the wear bar is almost flush with the tread,run your hand across it, then that is most likely your problem. Compare the front tires to the back ones, use a coin to see the difference, stick it in the tread groove and note where the tread comes on the coin. The grooves in the tread move snow away and once they are full the tires rides up on the snow instead of staying on the road. If you are unsure stop at a tire shop and get them to help check it out ( 3/32 inches is the minimum I think).
If these are good then you could have a brake caliper starting to go bad. They will seize up and stop working. When that happens the brake pressure transfers to the wheel that works. This will make the car pull to the side that works. So if the back brakes are good and the tires and good enough I would look at replacing the LEFT brake caliper. That would be the one sticking.
If you are travelling on roads that produce a noticable lean inside your car this could also be at least part of the problem. The car would tend to slide with the lean but if the roads appear flat then it's not likely the problem. Roads are "crowned" to be about 2% off level to help water run off but as a rule this shouldn't be the problem.
Hope this helps.

1995 camry front end wobbles at any speed including steering wheel shake

You probably need to get the tires balanced. One of the balancing weights may have come off.
Make sure the lugnuts are tight.

Severe tire wear within the last 6 months. I'm looking at getting the front end aligned, but I'm sure it needs shocks or struts. I don't wanna sound stupid, which does it have or does it have both??

if you look under the wheelarch,above the front wheel,if you can see a strut surrounded by a spring,then you have both.(the damper is inside the strut)(ive put it this way so you can see for yourself.)NOW tyre wear,if your shockers have gone the wear pattern will be flat across the tyre tread/no tread/tread/no tread,and you will feel like you have square wheels.
to check shockers, push hard down on one corner,the car should bounce up,then down,then settle at its original more.

The front passenger tire for my MDX is damaged beyond repair. Is it required that I replace all 4 tires together?

It depends on who you talk to. Certainly the manufacturer and tire companies will say so but their biggest worry is liability. A lot of people do not do this and don't have any trouble, not all of us have the deep pockets that are required to keep them happy.
For sure the tread depth or wear has to be the same on an axle so you should at least change them in pairs. Depending on how much tread is left on the driver's tire you maybe should consider replacing the pair, if it's nearly worn out. A used tire that will match up in tread design could replace a half worn tire. Tread design HAS to match on the drive wheels and should match on any axle.
Minimum tread depth, in Canada is 3/32 of an inch and is probably similar elsewhere.All tire dealers have a guage to measure this and should check the tire in 2 or 3 spots.
If your tire shop is giving you a hard time or refuses to work with you, find another shop. A "mom and pop" shop will probably be more user friendly than a large chain and the prices won't be much different. Just remember that a used tire is used and will not give you the same mileage as a new one. Also what do you think the tire shop is going to do with the 3 tires they are taking off? They don't throw them out if there is any tread left on them, they sell them. Hope this helps.
