It's not recommended that you replace them yourself if you haven't at least watched someone else replace one before. Often they require use of a torch just to loosen them up, and it's nearly impossible to get the new tie rod ends where the old ones were just by eyeballing it. Even just driving it from your house to the mechanic afterwards could cause significant enough tire wear to throw off an alignment.

2006 pt cruiser making scraping noise when wheel turning to the right


is it a scraping noise or a clicking noise. a scraping noise could indicate a brake noise when turning have the brakes checked in the front. if its a clicking noise only when turning to the right then you may have a bad cv joint on the right half shaft. replace the half shaft assembly.

My pt cruiser stalls whenever i slow down but moves perfectly on high speeds.This problem started after timing belt snapped and i changed it


My pt did the same thing. took it to another mechanic, and he told me they left the timing off. took it back and told them what the mechanic told me, and they set the timing straight. Now it runs great.

I'm having the same exact problem as cpurdey with my 2004 Mazda MPV. My mechanic is quite certain it is not the wheel bearing or hub but seems to think it's a bearing in the transmission. Is...


If it gets worse as you're turning right, but not left - Most definitely a wheel bearing on the right side. The right turn puts more stress on the right wheel - louder noise - turn left and release the stress - no noise. You can also lift the vehicle up on a jack and listen to the wheel and hear the bearing in the hub making noise.

Just had the timing belt changed for my 2004 pt cruiser and the engine is making load rattling noise.


Hopefully something is just loose and rattling around. The bad alternative is that the timing belt job was botched. I would not drive the car , get the mechanic to come over and find the problem , or he can tow it back to his shop at his expense.

A banging noise when going over bumps? I'd guess the lower control arm bushings are worn. This is relatively common, and would exhibit this symptom.

I would check the sway bar linkages, they are usually the first to go, and they are only $40. Its an easy 'do it yourself' project, remove the old one with torches or a grinder (with a small cutting wheel). You can also use a vise grip and sockets but it takes longer.

You can't tell these are damaged until you remove the part. I change mine every 100 000km or so.
