Tip

Front End Noise, Steering and Suspension


Noise in the front end of any make, model vehicle. Put a jack under the lower control arm and jack the left wheel off the ground, the trick is to try to get it at normal ride hight, grab the tire at the top and bottom and try to push and pull the top in and out inline with the ball joint. have a helper eye the ball joint and see if there is any motion(play) at the joint. If not, check the bottom the same way. if they are both good, try it side to side to check the tie rods for play, make sure the steering wheel is locked. Then do the same for the right side. If all checks good than it is probably the cv joint if the truck is four wheel drive, if it is not four wheel drive it's definately is not a cv joint because you don't have them. This Applies if your car is front wheel drive or your truck is four wheel drive model, go to a large parking lot, put the truck in a tight left turn, this will stress the cv joint, making it click, you will hear the noise from the side with the bad joint. Then make a hard right turn, then do the same things again, this time driving in reverse. That should allow you to isolate the noise, Please rate this four thumbs up if it helped, i appreciate your feedback. Thanks, Bob

my guess is the wheel bearing. jack the rear tire off the ground and try shacking the tire. if you have any play your bearing could be bad.did you hear a hum from the same wheel. wheel bearings will hum before they start grinding

2003 Kia Sorento 4 wheel drive will not disengage


Best way to fix it is to lift one side of the car using a jack. Get front and back wheels off the ground. Then put the car into neutral and out of four wheel drive into 2 wheel high ratio. Start the car and rev it up to about 3000rpm for a short while. It should then release the four wheel drive.
It gets stuck mainly because of transmission wind up. Ie tension in the transmission.

Well the only thing you didn't change were ball joints and if it's four heel drive , the universal joints in the shafts. Since it is a balance problem I would suspect the drive shafts. Although these are uncommon to have a vibration at a certain speed, I wouldn't rule them out. Also the u joints can get stiff, this would cause your problem faster. Check them for a lot of rust at the caps. And just a note alot of front end guys miss the shafts on alignments.

Left turns sometimes makes knockin noise seems left front, i see that the outside of that tire is worn too. I had front brakes/rotors replaced and seems since then it was happenin but not always


Could also be the upper ball joint, put a jack under the lower control arm and jack the left wheel off the ground, the trick is to try to get it at normal ride hight, grab the tire at the top and bottom and try to push and pull the top in and out inline with the ball joint. have a helper eye the ball joint and see if there is any motion(play) at the joint. If not, check the bottom the same way. if they are both good, try it side to side to check the tie rods for play, make sure the steering wheel is locked. if all checks good than it is probably the cv joint if the truck is four wheel drive, if it is not four wheel drive it's definately is not a cv joint because you don't have them. For the four wheel drive model, go to a large parking lot, put the truck in a tight left turn, this will stress the cv joint, making it click, you will hear the noise from the side with the bad joint. Then tru a hard right turn, then do the same things again, this time driving in reverse. That should allow you to isolate the noise, Please rate this four thumbs up if it helped, i appreciate your feedback. Thanks, Bob

How do i get the spare tire to come down


If the spare tire does not lower to the ground,the secondary latch is engaged
causing the tire not to lower Your vehicle has an underbody-mounted tire hoist
assembly equipped with a secondary latch system.It is designed to stop the spare
tire from suddenly falling off your vehicle if the cable holding the spare tire
is damaged.For the secondary latch to work,the tire must be stored with the
valve stem pointing up.
1.Check under the vehicle to see if the cable is visible.If it is not visible
proceed to Step 6.
2.If visible,first try to tighten the cable by turning the wheel wrench clockwise
until you hear two clicks or feel it skip twice.You cannot overtighten the cable.
3.Loosen the cable by turning the wheel wrench counterclockwise three or four turns.
4.Repeat this procedure at least two times.If the spare tire lowers to the ground
continue with Step 2 of removing the Spare.
5.Turn the wrench counterclockwise until approximately 6 inches (15 cm) of cable is
exposed.
6.Attach the jack handle,extension and the wheel wrench to the jack and place it under
the vehicle towards the front of the rear bumper.Position the center lift point of the
jack under the center of the spare tire.
7.Turn the wrench clockwise to raise the jack until it lifts the end fitting.
8.Continue raising the jack until the spare tire stops moving upward and is held firmly
in place.
9.Lower the jack by turning the wheel wrench counterclockwise.Keep lowering the jack
until the spare tire slides off the jack or is hanging by the cable.
10.Disconnect the jack handle from the jack and carefully remove the jack.Use one hand
to push against the spare while firmly pulling the jack out from under the spare tire
with the other hand.

Stuck in four wheel


make sure your tire pressures and sizes are all the same then try backing a go froward while turning. and moving the shifter in and out of 4x4. if that does not get it then get all 4 tires off the ground with jack stands and allow the wheels to turn slowly while you move the shifter in and out of 4x4. USE CAUTION IF SPINNING ALL 4 WHEELS OF THE GROUND. if that does not get then the t-case will likely need to be disassembled and looked into.

Noise when in 4 x 4


Bad news... It sounds like you have a broken/stripped axle. I would start at the wheel and start disassembling from the outside in. It may just be a stripped spline in the spindle.

Front passenger wheel


Could be a few things. Bad ball joint, cv joint, or others. But I'ld start with the CV joints. Basically, your axle shaft. First way to tell if that's the prob would be to put truck in 4 wheel drive, LOW gear. This will lock up all four tires. Then jack up that corner of truck. If the tire only moves a little before you can't anymore, it's fine. But if you can spin your tire completely, odds are it's your cv joint.
