Need to replace inner tie rod on a 1998 ford ranger two wheel drive , driver side . engine size is 2.5. do i have to take outer tie rod off as well?


webbraymond2, Yes, you have to remove the outer tie to access the inner tie rod. When you do this, count the rotations of the tie rod as this will have to be replaced when the new inner tie rod is installed. Counting the rotations will allow you to put the outer tie rod close to where it was when you started the job. You are changing the toe setting when you have to replace either the inner or outer tie rod. You need to access and remove the jamb nut and boot before you can access the inner tie rod and this is why the outer needs to be removed first. A wheel alignment is advised after you finish the job. Good luck with this.

I have a 1996 S10 2.2 litre, and I am experiencing a noticable vibration in between 20-25 mph and around 40 mph, I already changed the u joints, i'm not sure if its my rotors, or what. I do have a bad O2...


The O2 sensor answers the idle problem. The vibration could be motor mounts, bushings in the sway bar or even tie rod ends or a bad strut. If the vibration is only there when moving it's not the motor mounts but the rest are still suspect.

I think my idler arm needs to be replaced, how can I tell?


you have this listed under a 05 grand am..... if this is true you have what they call a rack and pinion steering system and do not utilize such a part. if you think you are having issues, the vehicle needs to be jacked up and you grab the front wheel and shake from side to side if there is any movement, you will usually feel it and you can look under and see if the inner or outer tie rods are moving.if you are able to move the wheel and no other steering component moves(i.e. you shake the wheel and the outer tie rod moves without the inner tie rod moving or vice versa) you need to replace that component. count the threads or measure the complete length to get it close. after you replace the parts make sure to replace the cotter pin and then have it aligned.

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)

2002 gmc sierra, 3500, 8.1, flashing mil, dies, starts rough idle



First buy the alldata subscription for your unit and read the engine power management system, once you understand this then you will see you don't need a scanner, you can code out if it's a engine problem then read the codes itself with a paper clip. Then once you get the codes post them here to get a better answer, the more information you can provide the better the answer you will get. A digital test meter will be better than a scanner. Without understanding the engine management system you won't be able to fix it without replacing a lot of parts.
