I hit the curb realy bad in an accident, my rear right side rim wabbles , I replaced the rim thinking it was jst the rim,!But I think its the axle!,shld I replace the whole rear end?

I dont know whar kind of vehicle or how many miles on it but if its rear wheel drive you can replace either. the rear end will cost more than an axle but if it has alot of miles on it plus you dont know about the rest of the componenents inside do the whole thing

I'm getting a 95 astro from my uncle he says the rear differential went out its making a thumping noise when driving would it be better to replace whole rear end or just gears or what could the problem be

before condemning the rear check the u joints first usually the most common problem but if rear is determined to need replacement than 1-replacement of gears by u unless u have the proper tools than that will be hard and can be more costly in long run if installed improperly 2-junkyard unit cheap usualy under 100 and can be installed by u with help from a friend 3- have rebuilt at a shop usually cost about 800 and up 4- if u live by a school or coledge or a school that has auto training these places usually charge a fee for the lift around 50 and dont charge for labor u buy the parts or replacement unit and they do the work [learning experience ]

When i turn right the car want to pull hard to the right but it dont do it when you turn to the left

You have a worn or damaged CV axle (constand velocity). The less likely problem is worn or damaged ball joins. If you dont know how to replace the CV i suggest taking it to a qualified mechanic. It will be a relatively cheap fix since there isnt a whole lot to it. Good luck and i hope i was able to shed some light on your problem. Please leave feedback if i was able to clarify your situation.

Thank you!

My 1998 grand am wont start :( my uncle think its the engine..he thinks that the engine has a water leaking in it...I dont know i really dont ! :( i just want my car fixed immediately.

pull the oil dipstick if there is only oil then uncle is wrong. if you overheated it really bad then it could be that though. depending on the mileage and service done already it could be the starter or timing belt failure.

I have a 2003 kia spectra .. do i have to replace the timing belt at 60,000 and do you know how much approx it would cost?

i would suggest replacing timing belt @ this time,depends on driving habits etc, and is probably a worst case scenario,would plan on it within a year because a lot of motors have interference heads,meaning if timing belt breaks it will destroy valve train,possibly pistons ,but just whole bunch of mojney,I know this because it happened to me,so if you dont want to try this yourself,

Speed beep sound problem

I dont know why it would make that sound. I dont know the MPH to KMPH difference, but the car should not be able to go over 110MPH . The noise you are hearing is probably coming from a little solenoid below the glove box. I actually took mine off and put in a silicone, wich quietned it a whole lot. This was a long time ago, but I dont think there was a way to disconnect it, it had other uses.

Jaguar x type 2.5 v6 se auto 2001

Mine did the same. The release as you know is electric on the boot rear button - and not mechanical as on other cars. The switch is telling the lock that you want it open still, so it will not latch. Try lightly pushing the button again a couple of times, and it may click off again, and Bob's your Uncle!!! I spent 10 minutes closing the boot lid with varying degrees of slamming before I discovered this remedy. Good Luck!
