Look for bent linkage and broken/disconnected wires. Try to picture the path the limb followed on it's way to where you found it. This is not the usual "it wore out" problem... be creative in your thinking when checking. Bends can be subtle but enough to throw stuff out of adjustment!

No real problems, just shopping for the best tires for Wisconsin winters. This is my second Chevy Lumina, the first was a 96, which was hit by a drunk driver while parked, and destroyed...nobody...

Make sure you get snow tires not all seasons. Get a tire with a "Mud and Snow" tread design. It may also be called M&S. If you experience a lot of icy conditions, give serious thought to getting them studded. Todays new tread designs give you the traction you will need to wade through snow but not the road noise that there used to be. Look for deep lugs with wide gaps between them to move snow out of the tire track. That way you will be the guy driving home while the other guy's are waiting to get towed out. Hope this helps.

I can't open the hood of my 97 chevy lumina?

Take a flashlight and observe the latch, under the hood, and try to find what exactly is catching on what. Use a flat head screwdriver to pry away whatever is catching, and open your hood.
