Possible bent swaybar

My Accord has a possible bent swaybar. Is there anyway to tell by possibly measuring from the linkage holes? Any other suggestions?

Backed out of driveway, van would not come out of reverse. pushed to side of road. dash light stays on "R" and van will not start at all


Sounds like a possible shift linkage problem. Follow linkage back from your transmission, look for bent levers, broken or bound up pivoting connections. The neutral start switch prevents starting of engine when transmission is not in neutral or park.

My 96 ford mustang v8 m/t wont shift out of reverse.is my transmission done? it happened before but after a couple min of messing around it popped out and was fine for a month


It could possibly be loose linkage where it connects to the transmission. Block the wheels on the passenger side and jack up the driver side of the car, putting jack stands under the front and back.Using a flashlight or drop light, inspect the linkage for loose connections or bent arms. If nothing found, try to manually move the linkage at the transmission. There is a possibility of bent or broken linkage inside the transmission, but that is an involved repair best suited for a shop.

Figure out why my car is wearing the outside of my tires . ihave to put new ones every 6 months


Too much toe in adjustment. The tires are pointed toward the center, I use an expandable retractable tent pole, with normal weight on the tires I check as high as possible without obstruction against the rim evenly front and back same distance from the ground and try to get as close to zero as possible. When there is the same amount of resistance without the length of the pole being changed when held against the rim on one side and brushed across the rim on the other end of the pole first checking the front of the front rim from side to side then the back of the front rim side to side you should see a great improvement in tire life if you have to lean one way or the other slight toe in is better than toe out. I try for zero running radial tires. Keep the pole level and straight as possible.
This should be done with the tires pointed as close to straight line forward as possible while the entire weight of the vehicle rests on the tires. I like to sight down the sidewall of the tire from the front of the vehicle looking toward the rear axle to determine if the tires are pointing straight. I measure adjustment against the rim to avoid differences in tire lettering. There are more ways to do this measuring but this is the only way to do it one manned that I know of without an alignment rack. The rim should be very true running when spinning on the spindle but even a bent rim can cause this method to be inaccurate. If a bent rim is all you have then you must just pick one spot on the rims and then rotate it to the front measure then to the rear then measure.

I need to replace my rear sway bar endlink bushings to pass inspection. any directions/assistance?


(Caution ) sway bar end is under pressure.

1.go to AutoZone get new linkage bars or just the bushings depends on wether the bar has grooves wore into them from use and new nuts. 2. Raise and safely support vehicle,3. remove tire, 4.using floor jack safely support the lower suspension arm and raise to remove pressure on the linkage bar between swaybar end and lower arm 5. remove the nut under the lower suspension arm that retains the swaybar linkage ,6. loosen and remove nut at swaybar end. 7.at this time only lower the lower suspension arm enough to remove the linkage bar. install new bushings or bar to the swaybar end don't completely tighten nut at this time.8. install new lower bushing then jack the lower suspension arm back up aligning the lower end of the linkage with the hole in the arm once pressure is lifting the swaybar install the lower nut and tighten at this time Torque top nut to35-47 Ft lb and bottom nut 8-10- Ft lb lower the jack from under the lower arm and install tire lower vehicle ready to go Appx 1 Hr per side

When i hit a bump a loud knocking sound comes from the passenger side rear


Sounds like a control arm or possibly the rear swaybar is loose. Pull the tire and check things out - you should basically have no play in any of the ball joints or linkages. If you do and it's on a ball joint, the joint should be replaced. If the swaybar is the culprit, you can replace the end link (from the bar to the wheel hub) independently - you don't have to buy a full sway bar setup.

Door linkage on '95 Wrangler.....


there is a small plastic clip that fits in the hole on the handle then the rod slips into it and the plastic clip snaps over the rod to hold it in place most times the plastic clip falls off and can be found in the bottom of the door, if you cannot find it your local parts store should have the clips.
