Check your brakes, c/v joint boots for tears (indicates contaminated joint) and wheel bearing hubs (least likely) One of these is making that noise.

I have a 93 Nissan quest minivan if the front end sounds like it is hitting something when i turn right would i only have to change the passenger side cv axle?


Could be axle, wheel bearing or both. I would recommend to change them both. Every time the shaking occurs, it damages both. Good luck.

1996 Nissan Quest GXE model. Bleeded brakes. No parts replaced. Brake works normally. No drag. With ABS. Now, right rear wheel and left front wheel locks. left rear wheel and right front wheel turns...


you need to first adjust rear brakes per TSB in our file, 98-14=4 I think. (If you replaced or adjusted rear brakes)

Then bleed again, but you may need to loosen the pressure valve on the master cylinder, or apply very hard pressure on the dowm stroke with the front bleeder on the claiper open just slightly. You have to overcome the the valve spring in it as it is deisgned to send pressure to the rears before the fronts to allow the rears to engage at the same time as the fronts. It takes higher pressure on bleeding to over come.

I am not sure how to answer the starting problem, I would suggest going to Autozone and put in on a scan tool to read out any possible codes--eliminate some guesswork for yourself. It is FREE.

The grinding or dragging at the front wheel could possibly be the brake pads need to be replaced. Do both wheels if they are bad.

Why does my 1996 nissan pathfinders pull to the right when I take my foot off the gas pedal when it is in two wheel drive but not in four wheel


My first thought would be that you have a brake that is sticking, or dragging, or not fully releasing (on the right, front side). In 2-WD it creates a drag on the right side that causes the vehicle to pull to the right.

In 4wd, the front wheels & all 4 wheels are effectively driven at the same speed, so it compensates for the dragging brake.

I'd start there, and also inspect the cv joints and front drive system to see if there is something out of kilter.

I'd consider front end alignment issues, but does not really sound like that is the issue.

Steering wheel vibration and whine noise from rear of car


Yes, and it probably is your wheel bearing. Hearing a sound like a chain dragging is classic. You may also hear a clicking noise or chain dragging noise when turning to the left or right.

Look under the car and see if the rubber boots that surround the axle near the tires are cracked and leaking grease. If so, it is almost a certainty that the bearings are bad as you have lost grease and thus lubrication to the bearings.

Good luck,

Makes winding in the front end when driving straight or turning right


Hi it needs a hub bearing sounds like the left one
jack up the left side so the left wheel is off the ground and start the vehicle and spin the wheel up to about 30 mph and you should hear the same noise and if not jack up the right side and do the same
hope this helps you
