The starter is located in the front of the engine and it is on the bottom. It is almost dead center, right in the middle of the engine. Start from the middle of your front end. Jack the car up and it is directly after your radiator. It should be hid partially by your exhaust.
The torque spec for the tyrod ends are 45 foot pounds.
• Unlock the steering wheel before jacking up the vehicle. This allows the Steering linkage to be moved for the best possible access to the ends' fasteners by grabbing one of the axle hubs
• Secure the vehicle on jackstands before removing the wheels.
• Buy name-brand tie-rod ends. Saving a few dollars on cheaply made parts isn't worth the risk.
• Mark the tie-rod ends' positions on their threaded adjusters before removing the old ends. This way, the new ends can be screwed in to approximately the same position as the old ones to get wheel allimint in the ballpark.
• Have the vehicle professionally aligned afterward, especially if the steering wheel isn't centered or the vehicle pulls one direction when attempting to drive straight.
Signs your haveing probloms with the tyrod ends
• Front-end shimmy, shake or vibration.
• Abnormal front-end noise.
• Hard steering.
•steering wheel doesn't return to center properly.
• Vehicle wanders.
• Steering feels unstable, loose or has excessive play.
Front0-0.06 To 0.06 degrees
Rear-0.2-0.6 To 0.2 degrees
Caster 3.32.3 To 4.3 degrees
Front0.1-0.1 To 0.3 degrees
Rear0.1-0.1 To 0.3 degrees
Front0.05 (1.5)-0.05 To 0.15 (-1.5 To 4) inches
Rear0.05 (1.5)-0.05 To 0.15 (-1.5 To 4) inches
These specs are to be used while measurements are read on an alignment machine.
Have the front end checked by a mechanic. The problem could be wheel balancing, front end alignment, broken tire belt or a number of related things. The rotors are held in place by the wheel lug nuts. Good luck!
