Hydroplaning is caused by the tyres not having the ability to get rid of water between the tyre and road, low tread depth, excessive speed in wet conditions, this will make the steering feel very vague. If your unsure of the steering, you need to take it for an alignment check. Get some decent tyres on the steering wheels at least.

When im driving the tracking active keep coming on. Do you know whats causing this problem?


Depends on conditions you are driving in ...If there is ice, slick road, or driving fast near beak away limits. The system will apply brakes, decrease speed and tighten steering so you remain in control of your vehicle. If your suspension , brakes or steering components are worn or bad, the vehicle may sense that there is a skid or unusual condition and activate the tracking system. If it is coming on under normal conditions have the mentioned components checked.

Why does my Grand Cherokee limited 1998 over steer?


  1. it normal.
  2. its got bald tires
  3. or are under or over inflated.
  4. the road is wet.
  5. driving to fast for conditions.
but 500 lbs of sand bags in rear, cured.?

only cars with 50/50 weight F/R balance have any change of neutral steering, fast.
like Lutus, or other fine road /race cars. Mid engine cars?

get a front wheel drive ,when it skids, it understeers,
once the weight and drive line is balanced and tires.
you have the finer points.
complex.

Shock mount problem?


Hi there, does it do it on a good road? If not then I wouldn't get too concerned, it is a front wheel drive I presume and any front wheel drive car will follow any imperfections in the road and track the road imperfection, is it like the steering has a mind of its own and wants to follow the road surface, if so then this is normal, if not please take it to your mechanical shop and have them look at it

Hello. I have a 2004 SAAB 9-3 and when it rains my car wobbles like I'm "fishtailing". Could it be my brakes? I'm scared...


If your tires are bald and have less than 1/8" tread, especially on the rear tires which I believe on Saab's are the drive wheels. If its your brake biasing, when its a dry road, have the car on a nice flat and straight road with little traffic around. At about 35MPH apply the brakes moderately while holding the steering wheel lightly. If the car "pulls" on the steering wheel to the left or right then there is a problem with your braking system, seek out a trusted mechanic asap

My car is Honda Civic 1995 model. When I drive it on an irregular road or even on straight road it's steering moves left and right. It did not have complete grip on the road. It seems like the where ever...


Hi, to me the problem sounds like the track rod ends need replacing these are what connects the steering to the hub now when you turn the wheel the track rod ends push the hubs in the way you want to turn but what happens ball joint on the track rod end get play in it is it allows the wheels to turn slightly on their own left and right now once these have been replaced you will have no problems.
if the ball joints where to break you would lose control of the car as the steering wheel would not turn the wheels as instructed and they would be free to turn any way they liked, this would cause damage to the front wings and the hub costing a fortune to put right, but as it stands the track rod ends cost very little to buy and dont cost much to get replaced.

how ever this isnt the kind of job you can do yourself as you would need to get the tracking set up to ensure the wheels are driving in a strait line as their is adjusters that need to be set up after the track rod ends are fitted.

once you have the track rod ends ( tie rods also known as) fitted you will have no further problems and you will then be in full control of your vehicle it will feel a lot more responsive to your control so this needs doing sooner rather than later.

Have 2007 Santa Fe which I love - problem: Drove thru puddle about 3 months ago - Battery light came on & lost power steering, but after 1 minute, batt light off & steering fine... Then, on very...


the crank pulleys (also called a harmonic dampener) on these vehicle are a fairly common failure. as they begin to break apart, the pulley will begin to have a wobble as the engine runs, causing the drive belts that power your alternator, power steering, etc to loosen off. when the belts then get wet, combined with being loose, they will slip, causing your accessories not to work. hope this was helpful!

2006 Hyundai Sonata: Wet road causes power steering failure


Ok, the high pitch sound is your idle pulley bearings going bad. The splash of water is exactly that, the belt gets wet and slips. Definitely a pully, more than likely the idler pully.
