The vehicle will suddenly jerk to the left at acceleration, and when you lift your foot from the accelerator it tugs to the right. Probable cause?


could be a differential problem, or half shaft broken where power is only going ot one wheel. when the car accelerates the wheel with power can cause the vehicle to jerk. could also be a wheel problem. ensure the tyres are inflated correctly. is the steering wheel straight or turned to one side when driving in a straight line. if turned there may be damage to the steering system. did the symptom start after another person has driven the vehicle? or after an accident or driving into a curb or off road? all these may be factors to the problem. if not the case try rotating the wheels front left to rear right and front right to rear left to see if the problem disapears. if persists seek professional to test drive the vehicle and give an appraisal to the cause.

I hope this was helpful.

Knocking sound from front passenger that worsens when turning and accelerating


CV joint - wheel side needs to be replaced :) right wheel, a lot of people drive like that for a while before they fix it so don't worry, also it shouldn't be soooo expensive

My 2000 jetta pulls to the right under hard acceleration but drive strait at speed


If it is PULLING to the right, is it STEERING or TORQUE that is pulling it?

What I mean is this... If ONLY your Right Front Wheel is pulling with the Acceleration and the LEFT is not,m you will have a Torque Pull,

You may have a problem with your
a. Left CV Axle
b. Transaxle Internal Failure

2005 trailblazer knocking sound front drivers side wheel when accelerating only


First check wheel bearing. Jack front end up lifting tires off ground and see if the wheel moves by pulling on the sidewall part of wheel from top and pushing bottom towards the car does this back and forth if there is play, wheel bearing could need replaced. Take tire off and check for loose brakes, loose calipers, loose dust shields , etc. everything except rotor should be tight.

I have a 2005 renault espace 2.2dci - It fails to accelerate from stationery and has a 3-4 second delay before increasing its speeed this proves dangerous at junctions as it disllows me to accelerate ?...


Hi,
The problem in the acceleration might be the electronic governor and the clutch have to be replace. ur nearest service center would check on it thoroughly, its a bit expensive and a experience Renault technician is needed! The front wheel alignment should be checked again, as u said somebody have tinkered on ur steering! Tell them to check the front wheel alignment(toe-in/toe-out) and the cambering. Ask them to show the result of computer wheel alignment. Wheel balancing is for the tyres only, not the steering!
Hope that Fixya up!

Momentarily pulls left when accelerating (feels drifty/floaty like being pushed sideways by a strong breeze) then pulls right(same thing) when letting off accelerator. No play/slop in steering.


If you are driving any front wheel drive vehicle, what you are feeling is called torque steer....sometimes it's from poor design but it can also be caused by a broken engine or transmission mount allowing the engine/trans assembly to shift under load or when removing load.
You can do a quick test by holding the brake down firmly and in gear, press down on the gas. have someone watch (from the side of the car ONLY) and see if the engine shifts. Do in both drive and reverse.
Be very careful when doing this that the car does not get away from you and do not hold power for more than about fifteen seconds at a time or it can overheat the transmission. This only works in automatic trans cars... for stickshift ones you need to move the engine with a long pry bar.

Under acceleration the car pulls to the left but is fine under steady speed driving and tracks straight. Tire inflation is normal.


A front wheel drive car pulls with the same wheel it steers with. So if any part of the suspension,or steering linkage is warn , torque from acceleration will pull the drive wheel to the side. After 15 years on the road : my guess is warn-out tie-rod-ends. See a mechanic.It won't be cheap, but a hole-lot easyier !
