Question about 1995 Toyota Corolla
I bought this car for a 100 dollars because it was in a side impact accident. After a few months i started having problems with shaking in the front end on the right side. I got the ball joint (i think) fixed at a shop because the front right broke and the car wouldn't move anymore after getting that fixed the shaking stopped for about 6 months now the shaking is back. It shakes really bad as soon as i hit 65 to 70 mph on the freeway. Could this be the tires needing to be rotated, the CV joint, the tie rod, or the rack and pinion? The tires are inflated correctly too. Should i just get a whole new wheel assembly? I like to fix my cars myself , instead of someone saying they fixed it and its not fixed. I also have a manual for my car. Can someone help? Also how can i fix the metal on the side of my car to make new doors close properly on the side with the major damage? Do i just heat up the metal with a blow torch and bang it back in place? I can also email a picture of my car where the damage is if that would help. Thank you for your help, Sincerely Cherie
You need to have your alignment, cambering diagnosed for you to know the real position of your four tires. yes you really need to check the tie rods.
Heating up the metal would most likely damage your paint and anti corrosion properties of your metal, try re-aligning the doors hinges by loosening the screws enough for the door to move, dont dismantle it.
