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.
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.
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.
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.
There is a tool that you can use that will make it easier for you. To get to the tie rod end, remove the wheel and take the outer tie rod end loose from the hub. You will have to use a hammer and hit the socket where the end goes into the hub to free it up. Once you have the tie rod loose from the hub, loosen the nut behind the outer tie rod end. Count the revolutions as you unscrew the outer end off and write te number down so you will know how far to put it back on. This will save your alignment. Now, the end that is still there is your inner tie rod end. You will have to undo the bellows boot to get to the nut. The tool will slide over the end and secure onto the nut. Now you just unscrew this and replace with you new inner tie rod end.

I have a 1994 Cadillac Eldorado and every time i start it the car has rough Idle and the Idle fluctuate's. I also can feel it in the gas pedal when the car is doing this I tried replacing the throttle body sensor but it still does it I also was told it was the Idle error sensor. So instead of spending the unecessary money again I thought I would go online and see if anyone could help me with this problem.
