    How can i get my car to start again after hitting a curb and car shuts off and will not turn back on?

    I have a 2001 Mazda Protege and I hit a median curb about 6 this morning and blew out both my front left and rear left tire and rims and immediately after i hit the curb my car cut off and will not turn back on. this was early this morning and i have been periodically going to try to start it again and it does not start. It sounds like it is trying to start but does not start. I was told to look in my trunk under the carpet on the left and right side for a button but i could not find any buttons. I am a single mom and that is my only means of transportation. PLEASE HELP!!

Was run into a curb at a fairly high speed. front end acts like wheels are spinning on elipctical spinndles.


Something is BENT! You need to take it in and have the Alignment checked on it. The curb knocked it out of whack!!! A simple alignment should take care of this but more than likely you bent the wheel ( RIM )

Hit the curb on that snow day pretty hard that it bent the rim and chipped some of the hub cap what should I do


Hi,
If the rim is bent severely, it could cause wear on your tire. If you are unsure of the severity, you might take the vehicle to a tire shop and have the wheel checked on a rotating balance type machine.
Worse case scenario, replace the rim (I'd get one from a wrecking yard). If the hub cap asthetics bother you, the salvage yard may also have one of those.
Hope this helps... Good luck!

Has a slight wobble at low speed?


you need to jack it up and spin 1 tire at a time, use a run out guage on the tires and wheels.a high speed 60 to 65 mph is from wheel balance. low speed is a bent wheel or a bad tire. belt separation
