Question about 1998 Toyota Camry

2 Answers

When I turn my wheel to the right i get a wobble out of the front right tire. What would be the problem? Tires look fine but the axle does shift slightly from left to right would that be some problem? Or would it just be an unbalanced tire?

Axle is supposed to do that. need to jack up wheel not take it off. and put hands at 12 and 6 pm and wiggle wheel if there is a lot of movement then the bearing is gone. if ok let down. take wheel off and jack back up. on the suspension there is an arm coming off it. thin bar. fixes to another bar. this is a drop link arm. not these work with the anti-roll bar that is on the front. pull on it if it moves out and in it needs changing and that is your problem. also change other side as when one goes it is best to change both side. easy job to do. on the anti-roll bar at the front there is some rubbers that hold it in place check them and if the look split or cracked would change them to wile you doing the drop links. you just unbolt them. pull the rubber out of the case and swap the rubbers and bolt back on with some locking seal.

SOURCE: Noise (vibration) when turning right

That sounds like a left front wheel bearing gone bad My friend.. turning right transfers weight to the left side and it probably has a roar similar to a turbo fan jet.. Try it and lemmie know.. thank you

SOURCE: I HAVE A 2004 TOYOTA CAMRY. I HEAR A ROARING NOISE

sounds to me like its a cv joint. if the rubber boot gets damaged in any way, dirt gets in there and really does some damage. check the boot really good. if you dont see any holes or anything it might just be the wheel bearing. id take it to a mechanic and ask him to just look at it. usually they wont charge ya.

SOURCE: Truck makes humming sound, volume increases with speed and turn

Wheel bearings is my guess. Confirm this by jacking the vehicle up with wheels on and check for play. Grab the tire by the top and bottom and wiggle it in and out, the will be excessive play. Given the fact that you gave a clear explination i am almost certain its bearings. You will need to purchace new bearings(Inner and Outer), Hub Seals, and possibly a possibly an axle seal kit for the 4x4 drive axle (they get old and stick to the axle durring disassembly) and keep in mind that to get the outter races of both bearings in the hub need to be "Pressed" out a a machine shop, or by any shop that might have a press.

I have Toyota 2006 sienna and front right wheel shakes or wobbles ... I have new front tires and balanced.. but still wobbles a little...please any thoughts?


Hi Scott.
Try switching the wheels from left to right side and see if the wobble goes with it.
If not, look for a worn tie rod end or other suspension component.
If wobble goes to left side, look for bent rim.
Cheers.

Tires out of balance? Start with the simple things before changing stuff like axle shafts. Take the car to a tire shop and make sure the tires are balanced and the rims aren't bent, as either one of these can cause a rough ride

I have a constant wobble at the steering wheel when driving in a straight line which does disapear when turning also the steering is sometimes jumpy and also have a loud sqealing noise on either full lock...


The noise at full lock is the pump screaming for mercy. All power steering pumps will complain a bit if the steering is held at full lock. Now, if the belt to the pump is loose, it will scream even louder, because holding the steering at full lock will cause the belt to slip. There is also a technical service bulletin for your vehicle concerning loud power steering noise which involves replacing the fluid lines and.or fluid cooler. This is not cause for concern, but an aggravation to the ears.

The "wobble" thing in the steering wheel is a whole different story. If it is wobbling all the time, it would almost have to be a tire/wheel or axle problem. I know you said this is not the problem, but I think you need to look again. Try rotating the tires to the back and see if the wobble changes. A very severerly warped brake rotor can cause this also, but will be much worse during braking. A bad axle shaft can also cause a wobble in the steering. This is consistent with your description of the problem changing during turns...A bad axle shaft can do this. Also check for looseness in the front wheel bearings.

Wobble while driving. After inspecting saw that the right front boot on the axle was weather cracked, assuming no more grease inside, what parts do I need to replace?


A CV boot will generally not cause a wobble. If the boot is not cracked open there is plenty of grease inside. If the boot was leaking grease you would see it slung all over the back side of the knuckle, brake caliper, and inside of the wheel.

If the steering wheel is moving back and forth at slow speeds the first thing I would check for is a separated tire or a bent wheel. If you feel the tread of the tire it should feel smooth all the way around. If there is a high spot or bump it is separated.

The easiest thing to do is have the tires balanced. Tell them you are getting a wobble in the steering wheel. They will inspect the front tires closely and if they find an issue have them show you what they found.

Front end wobble


An easily overlooked problem that can have these symptoms is low tire pressure. Examine your tire for excessive wear or a flat spot. Check your tire pressures. If all this seems fine, rotate your tires to see if that helps the problem. If so, replace the suspect tire.

Steering wheel wobble between 5-30 mph. and again at over 50mph


possibly bad brake hose or twisted/kinked causing pull. wobble may be bad/worn axle shaft on right side.some right axles are 2 or3 piece design.carrier support bolts maybe missing but more likely joint is worn. look for boots that have split or cracked&leaked grease.
