Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
I have same problem and today took it to Mechanic as we want to sell ours. We were told serperntine belt was loose, so they replaced it. However 3 months ago we already paid fpor brandnew belt, so now I am wondering if we were ripped off by mechanic one or mechanic two. Would love to know the answer as feel pretty bad about it now. The first mechanic put 7PK 1930 size, second mechanic said it was too loose so put on 7PK 1905. Which one is right for our 2007 camry?

SOURCE: rattle steering wheel
Sounds like your intermediate steering shaft. Its the slip shaft that runs thru the firewall. They have a slip-stick condition that makes a horrible rattle that you can feel in the wheel. Its a pretty easy repair. Just make sure the steering wheel dosen't spin while you are changing it.

I have a 2002 bravada that is also doing the same thing, most likely if you have 84000 miles on it you probably need to change out the front struts and rear shocks, not cheap to do. I haven't done them to mine yet due to oil leaking out the front seal where the axle assembly goes into the oilpan is leaking and don't know how much that will be to have it fixed. May not be worth doing. But the most likely cause of your problem is the struts. I had it quoted one time and it was around 500-600 just to have the fronts done, so i figured I'd just do it myself. doing it yourself will cost around 350 for 2 struts and 2 rear shocks from oreillys.

SOURCE: 94 Geo Prizm CV or driveaxle?
on this type of vehichle, you have two axles in the front; one going to each side. Chances are that the boot at the axle joint was torn and that is why you are having problem. In teh past people used to replace the boot, this day and age its actually cheaper to replace the axle. So you would need to replace that side of the axle (the half shaft).

I think the problem is the power take off for the front fan ,steering etc. Underneath the middle of the car you will see what looks like a small propshaft pointing towards the front with a doughnut shapped mounting bolted to each end. These rubber joints wear and rattle on tick over or low revs cost is about £40 for the 2 from Japarts
Takes about 2 hours to change.Hope this helps Good luck
