SOURCE: siezed exhaust manifold bolts

Get brake fluid or transmission fuild on them. Let it set for up to an hour...try to break them loose...put more fluid on it...tighten them wait about ten minutes...break them loose....this works...just don't start the vehicle and cook off the fluid.

SOURCE: can't get front wheel bearing retaining nut to break loose

Air tools? good heavens. Just get some classic coca cola and wait. She goes loose left handed. But make sure you undo the fixing of the nut first (the way it is secured not to turn loose spontaineously). At some cars there is a split pin, Mazda had those deformable ones which you had to cut partially. (And new ones ready)

SOURCE: timing advance and dwell specs ford probe

timing and dwell angle is non adjustable in these later model vehicles. the dwell is simply a reading that might be useful on a scope, while the timing advance is controlled by the systems ecu(computer) by taking readings off the knock sensor(or pre detonation sensor). this is a mazda engine. is there a problem or are you simply trying to keep up on the maintenance?

Why is the front tires slanted when I reverse or turn on my 1995 ford f-150


A normal amount of angle is proper for the kind of car or truck you drive. Horizontal angle is called "Toe-In" or "Camber" and Vertical angle is called "Caster." A wheel alignment specialist will be able to tell you quickly whether your car or truck requires the $100 wheel alignment procedure to assure your tires wear evenly on each axle. Front tires always wear more, particularly in front wheel drives vehicles as the tires have two kinds of wear: steering wear from side to side, and increased friction wear from torque application from acceleration. FWD vehicles generally require tire rotations twice as often as RWD vehicles for this reason. Always get a wheel alignment when replacing both front tires with new ones to increase tire life.

Preventing tire wear is about regular maintainence to your vehicle.
You should rotate your tires every 5,000 miles , and keep
your tire pressure at factory pressures as indicated by the tag
inside the drivers door column.
Alignment is another factor in tire wear , look at your tires carefully .
Look for any unusual wear , especally on the inside of the tires,
as this is usually the most troublesome spot.
As vehicles age , the springs lose their tension to a degree.
This causes a problem in the tire angle called "camber".
The vehicles wheels are tilted inward at the top.
Excessive negative camber will wear the inside of the tire.
Most vehicles can have this corrected by properly aligning
the vehicle .
Another wear problem can be caused by the toe adjustment
being out of specifications .
This is the most destructive angle to tires , it the same angle you use to steer the vehicle left and right .
It normally causes inner and outer tire edges to wear rough in
one direction smooth in another while rubbing your hand around the
tire.
Both these angles can be corrected by a professional alignment .
Be sure the technician inspects your front end for any worn parts,
as aligning it with them is a waste of money and time .
Always ask for a before and after printout of your alignment.

Front Wheel Allignment


On these LH body cars, camber is not adjustable. Neither is caster. Those angles are preset by the suspension geometry. However, specifications for them ARE published. Generally, if either of those two parameters are out of spec, then it's likely something is worn or damaged and needs to be replaced.

The only adjustable parameters are to the front and rear toe but specified as "Total Toe" - see note below.
The alignment specs are as follows ...

ALIGNMENT SPECIFICATIONS AT VEHICLE CURB HEIGHT
A. FRONT WHEELS
  1. CAMBER
    Acceptable -0.6° to +0.6°
    Preferred +0.0°
    Side to Side Differential
    Acceptable 0.7° or less
    Preferred 0.0°
  2. TOTAL TOE - Specified in degrees. See Note Below
    Acceptable 0.4° in -to- 0.0° out
    Preferred 0.2° in
  3. CASTER* (reference angle)
    Acceptable +2.0° -to- +4.0°
    Preferred +3.0°
    *Side to Side Caster Difference not to exceed
    Acceptable 1.0° or less
    Preferred 0.0°
B. REAR WHEELS
  1. CAMBER
    Acceptable -0.6° -to- +0.4°
    Preferred +0.1°
  2. TOTAL TOE** - Specified in degrees. See Note Below.
    Acceptable 0.2° out -to- 0.4° in
    Preferred -0.1° in
    **TOE OUT when backed onto alignment rack is TOE IN when driving.
  3. THRUST ANGLE
    Acceptable -0.15° -to- +0.15°
Note: "Total Toe" is the arithmetic sum of the left and right Toe settings. Positive is Toe-in. Negative is Toe-out. Total Toe must be equally split between left and right wheels. Left and Right Toe must be equal to within 0.02° (2 one hundredths of a degree).

My Mitsubishi Lancer need wheel alignment, tell me, under what degree the wheel should be set up


castor angle 1/2 to 11/2 degrees
camber 0 to 1degrees
toe in 1/8 to 1/4
As it has to be done at a wheel alignment shop they will know the best settings. Make sure that they do the alignment on the rear first as it affects the front alignment

Wheel alignment


If the car is stock then I would run the caster at .05 higher on the right than the left to adjust for the crown of the road. the front alignment looks good other than I am not sure which one is camber and which one is caster. To adjust the rear camber on these cars you have to have a camber kit. From the angle I am seeing you don't have a camber kit. Also the only way to adjust caster on the civic is to shift the sub frame.

I own 2009 Impala and just replaced tires at 30,000 miles. I did rotate tires but still had wear on front tires. I had a front end alignment the last time and they told me the camber was off because I must...


Well, the camber which is the vertical angle of the tires or wheels as the car is viewed directly from the front, is adjustable on these cars' struts.

So, if the alignment technician performs a front wheel or even a 4 wheel alignment (which is better), then the front angles should be adjusted so that tire wear doesn't occur on the left or right side of the tire as viewed from the front.

I would continue to rotate tires every 5,000 mi. or so, and have the alignment checked at a place like Sears or your local tire shop to ensure that your alignment is good, and not out of specifications.

I've been told I need to replace my 1999 Maxima's front axles, but it was not "urgent". Upon inspecting my tire treads, I noticed that when I parked, the steering was turned to the left. Upon...


The alignment angles may off due to worn parts. The half shafts on the Maxima might be worn, as indicated by a clicking noise on turns. The camber and toe can be off caused by worn ball joints or tie rod ends ( which are connected to the rack and pinion), respectively, causing the wheels to appear to be 'toe out' as you describe in your problem.

Sometimes, the wheels will appear to be toe out compared to the body, but are in reality dead straight ahead according to the alignment machine which can measure angles down to a fraction of a degree.

Are you experiencing irregular tire wear, indicating poor alignment?

Before a computerized alignment can be performed, the front end parts should be tight for the various angles, including cast, camber, and toe.

The axles, are less of an issue, except worn ones can cause that notorious clicking and eventually lead to a break down in the drivetrain where the half shaft joint actualy breaks apart.

Also, a worn axle can cause the bearings in the hub to go bad if the axle is binding at all.

It's a good idea to have all of the front end parts as tight as possible.

That is probely a camber angle and is best fixed by a front shop becouse the king pins might need to be honed for the new ones to fit. The camber angle needs to be set in a shop toe in/out is not to bad to do at home bt camber angle is not as easy. sorry
