You definitely have something bent in the steering and suspension like a bent Knuckle or a bent inner and outer tie rod. You should have vehicle checked by a body shop or an front end alignment specialist. BUT THERE IS SOMETHING BENT IN STEERING OR SUSPENSION. Good luck and Thanks for using FIX YA

2007 dodge caliber rt slap stick put new tires on 3 months ago driver side front tire is worn cant let off wheel car pulls bad to the right side of the road


The popping could be from a bad CV axle joint, or a bad wheel bearing. Better get checked, sounds very worn. Raise the wheel on a jack and watch for play. Grab wheel at 3 and 9 o'clock, and shake back and forth-watch for play. Wheel bearing? CV joint -is boot still good? Ball joints at bottom of wheel attaching point to the control arm-check this for play, too.

Tip

Keep your tires in good lasting shape


Did you ever see the statements in the tire dealer shops stating a specific tire model will last approx. 50-75,000 miles/
This will never happen unless you have your tires rotated every 7500 miles, the front tires wear excessively compared to the rear tires in 90% of the cars/trucks.
Why? Because the front tires in most cases are the drive tires(front wheel drive) causing the front tires to ocasionally spin causing excessive wear and also the front tires are the ones that guide your vehicle down the road, when you turn the steering wheel you are turning the front tires to make the car go in the direction you want thus causing more excessive wear to the front tires, in order to get even wear from front to back tires one must move the front tires to the back tires at 7500 mile intervals, making sure the tires only get rotated to the same side of the car each and every time, if you move a right rear tire to a left front position, severe damage may occur so please keep them same side rotations.
Also have your wheel alignment checked at a tire shop each time you bring it in for a wheel/tire rotation as pot holes, hitting curbs,etc all can effect the way the tires wear if the alignment goes out.

91 accord lx front wheels srem to wobble when hitting bumps in thr road


A loose front end is no joke. Ignoring the problem can cause premature / uneven tire wear and other costly repairs or accident due to catastrophic failure when least expected.

Typically, front end pivoting points used for steering - called "ball joints" - wear out providing similar sensations as you describe. This is not really a DIY type of repair - and should be brought to a trusted mechanic for a proper diagnosis and repair.

What does it mean when your front wheels are not parallel? Driver side points straight forward and the front left points a little to the right.


It means that your front end is out of alignment. The front wheels should be adjusted so that both point slightly inwards at the front of the car when the steering wheel is straight. This is referred to as "toe-in." The reason why cars and trucks are aligned with toe-in is because the wheels go to a straight position when traveling on a highway due to the road resistance pushing the tires back. What you have is a "toe-out" condition which will cause the tires to wear faster at the side adjacent to the back of the wheels. Have your car aligned to avoid such uneven wear.

Figure out why my car is wearing the outside of my tires . ihave to put new ones every 6 months


Too much toe in adjustment. The tires are pointed toward the center, I use an expandable retractable tent pole, with normal weight on the tires I check as high as possible without obstruction against the rim evenly front and back same distance from the ground and try to get as close to zero as possible. When there is the same amount of resistance without the length of the pole being changed when held against the rim on one side and brushed across the rim on the other end of the pole first checking the front of the front rim from side to side then the back of the front rim side to side you should see a great improvement in tire life if you have to lean one way or the other slight toe in is better than toe out. I try for zero running radial tires. Keep the pole level and straight as possible.
This should be done with the tires pointed as close to straight line forward as possible while the entire weight of the vehicle rests on the tires. I like to sight down the sidewall of the tire from the front of the vehicle looking toward the rear axle to determine if the tires are pointing straight. I measure adjustment against the rim to avoid differences in tire lettering. There are more ways to do this measuring but this is the only way to do it one manned that I know of without an alignment rack. The rim should be very true running when spinning on the spindle but even a bent rim can cause this method to be inaccurate. If a bent rim is all you have then you must just pick one spot on the rims and then rotate it to the front measure then to the rear then measure.

Oldsmobile Intrigue front end howl


Need more info...front end you say... A particular side? Is replaced tire the same as other 3 tires? hear it while driving, or braking, or both? Hear it more steering left or right or going around a corner?

Could be a front wheel/hub bearing is my only guess at this point. Howling or groaning could also mindicate a transmission problem.

Any info on tie rods


You have left and right inner tie rods and outer tie rods on your car.
You also have lower ball joints which can wear loose too....not to mention the left and right struts and upper strut bearings.

A cheap (China) tie rod may last only a year.(plastic inner wear points)
A good quality tie rod may last 10.(nylon and/or metal wear points)

Where is the air pump on a 2000 chevy impALA


Underneath your driver's side front fender (in front of the tire), you will find a black removable panel on the bottom. This panel can be removed or adjusted by removing the three screws attached at the bottom (front) of the fender and two screws inside the wheel well towards the bottom front. With the car jacked up and safetly standing on jack stands, remove the front driver's side tire. You can now fold this black panel back (it has a hinge point for this purpose) and gain access to the secondary air pump.

Rear tire wear


Sounds like your alignment is out, take it and get it balanced, If not that then something has broken in the rear end causing your tire to wear wrong
