What is a CV joint?


A wobble in the steering is more likely to be one of

- loose wheel nuts
- loose hub nut
- worn steering tie rod outer joint
- worn steering tie rod inner joint
- loose steering rod universal
- worn steering knuckle ball joint

Out of these a worn or loose steering tie rod joint is most likely. If you can, jack the front of the car up and rest it on axle stands, NOT just on the jack, then have one person shake the front wheel back and forth while holding it at 9 and 3 o'clock, while another holds the steering wheel still. Then look at and feel each joint to see if you can locate the looseness.

My front driver side tire is loose and feels like its about to fall off


Hi, there are four possible cause of the loose tire namely you either have a bent rim, bad bearings, the wheel is loose or the ball joints are bad. You have to inspect it to know the possible cause

sounds like you need new ball joints. jack the front of the car up one side at a time so that the tire is clearly off the ground. once you do that try to push and pull the tire from left to right. if it does move then its your ball joints.

I have a knocking as i do long left hand turns from the front nearside of the car (2003 x type jag) worse if someone sat in passenger seat


There are several components that could cause noise from the front when turning. I am assuming when you say the Front nearside you are saying the fromt left wheel is where the knocking is comming from when making a left turn. The components to be concerned about are, Wheel bearings, Ball Jionts, Tie rod Ends, CV joints and brake rotors.
Wheel Barrings:
Jack the car up under the control arm until the wheel is off the ground about 3 inches. Slide a pry bar ybder the tire and place the other hand on the top of the tire. As you lift and lowere the pry bar fell for loose movement in the tire. If there is such movement you have a bad wheel bearing.
Ball Joint:
Repeat the test above and watch the upper and lower ball joints for movement. Is there is movement replace the bad ball joint.
Tie Rod ends:
With the tire still off the ground grip the tire in the front and back and rey to move it as if your were trying to turn the tire. Watch the tie rod ends for loose movement. If they are loose replace them.
CV joint:
The Joint is housed in a rubber boot. If you can feel the joint inside the boot you can turn the tire forward and back and feel for play in the joint. If you are not able to feel the play you can loosen the clamp on the boot and push the boot out of the way. Then repeat the test.
Brake Rotors. Inspect the brakes for wear and any signs of pitting or grooves in the rotors.
You need to take this seriously because if you have a Ball joint or tie rod end break while driving, it will cause a wreck.

My honda has been shredding my tires on the front axle. I thought it was a alignment i needed, but now its making a horrible noise on the left front side of my car, and it feels like the tire wants to fall...


You may have an issue with a ball joint or "A" arm bushing - I recommend you stop driving it and have it towed to your local auto shop for a hands on diagnostic. If the ball joint breaks you could possibly lose your entire wheel assembly while moving- this happened to my wife's van 2 months ago and was an expensive fix. If a bushing goes on the "A" arm then your wheel will lean and that will shred the tire too and may ruin the arm requiring replacement. Either way you would be safer to get it towed right away!!

I have 1998 Mercury Sable DOC. I have some vibrating in the front end, I have had bearings, ball joints, brake pads, rotors, calipers, tie rod ends replaced and the vehicle still shakes. I notice it more...


OK, I would change the tires if I had vibrating in the front end after all of that work.

Have the wheels/tires spin balanced in the front and have the tire tech check for out of roundness as it spins on the electronic balancer.

I wouldn't be surprised if the tires were out of round.

I usually recommend Goodyear or Michelin tires with an A traction and A or B Temperature rating and a long treadlife warranty (60,000 mi. or above) to get a rock solid feel in the front end at all speeds.

I just solved such a problem on my 1997 Cadillac Deville Limousine which had used Goodyear Integrity tires and replaced them with new Goodyear Assurance Tires which solved a front end and general body vibration at highway speeds.

Good luck on getting new tires for your vehicle, and hope the shakiness goes away!

wheel alignment,make sure you have it done at alignment shop, not a regular mechanic shop,also some newer vehicles have shims like adaptors,make sure they're on properly.otherways the nut is tight but the ball joint is still loose.

SYMPTOMS OF BALL JOINT WEAR


If you make a hard right or left hand turn (with steering wheel turned until it stops) you'll hear and feel a pop sensation.When you drive over potholes you'll feel a slight pull to one side.If it is one of the upper balljoints,you can grab the tire with both hands near the top(11 and 1 o'clock) and pull the wheel back and forth.You will feel looseness if the upper balljoint is bad.
