Question about 1999 Nissan Pathfinder
The car wobble and pulling when i step or release the gas paddle,happen especialy when i drive in the highway i have done alighment 3 times and changed all the shocks and struts,axles and sway bars. nothing seem to solve the problem and also my steering wheel wont stay straight. when i turn right, the car will go straight but the steering wheel will stay on the right position and same when i makes a left turn. spend too much money and times on it, just cant find the problem and the mechanics just keep on telling me to change this and change that. and i when to different one also. anyone can help me solve the problem? thankx in advance
Arron, i agree with jall, you can't align the wheels with bad tierod ends. It is dangerous. But you say that you turn the wheel and it just keeps going straight. it seems that something is broken inside the steering column. this used to happen a lot to the older vehicels. the steering attachment from the column to the wheel would break. I think that it should not be that bad even if it was out of alingnment.

Honestly, I've done enough suspension work to know that your problem probably lies in the tie-rod ends. If the hole that the pivot shaft comes out of is even the slightest bit oblong, you'll experience major play in the wheel as well as your steering wheel not returning to the proper position. Whats more, if your tie-rod ends get too worn, the pivot shaft can actually separate from the tie-rod while you're going down the road, causing you to lose ALL steering capability...I've had this happen to me before, and believe me, it's NO FUN AT ALL!!! If the tie-rodends aren't the problem, then you've probably got an issue with a damaged control arm or sub-frame. Hope this helps!!!
