My sliding door on the driver sideof my 2002 ford windstar will not open its like its jammed what should i look for

In all honesty & after reading the previous posts, have you tried to lubricate the hinge(s)/latch/etc. at all? All in all, it really doesn't matter what you use to lubricate it with. I've found keeping parts, regardless of what it is, lubricated tends to keep whatever was lubed working like new. Maintaining a vehicle isn't just oil changes & such, it's using numerous products to keep the doors/hinges/mpg's/etc. going strong and lasting as long as it can.

Car door is sagging

Take a good look at the door hinges. Often, there will be replaceable bronze bushing inserts in the hinges, and the hinge pins are also prone to wear, especially if the recommended lubrication is not done.

If the bushings and/or pins are not replaceable and the wear is in the hinges, the hinges willl need to be replaced.

Other possible causes are loose hinge mounting fasteners, failure of the door or "A" pillar (for front doors) at the hinge mounting location(s) due to rust or physical damage, and (of course) collision damage to the door or door frame.

Drivers side door will open but it is really hard to open it.

sounds like the door hinges may need some grease applied to them. open door and spray a teflon based lubricant onto hinges, move door back and forth and spray hinges one more time. if this does not free up the door then I would say that there may be a problem with the alignment of the hinges.

I have noisy driver side door hinge it poss how can i repair it?

depends on whether or not there is also play in it. if the door is loose, then you need new hinges. if it is merely squeaking then a dry lubricant such as graphite can be helpful or a goopy lubricant such as chain lube in a spray can is good.

The door 1996 toyota camry is very hard to swing open and shut. Mike

Hello Mike. Your issue may be as simple as properly lubricating your door or based upon the age of your Camry, one of your hinges could need to be replaced. Let's try the inexpensive fix first. Get a can of WD-40 at any hardware store, auto parts store or walmart. This is a penetrating lubricant. Spray it into each of the hinges on your door and let it work. Repeat each day until the door works as it should.
If, after getting the door to operate better you notice that one of the hinges has rusted out somewhat, you will have to replace it. You can then go to most auto parts stores where they will now sell you the part, and even loan you the tools to repair it yourself. Regards. Joe

My door in the back will not close

One of the common problems with your car door is lack of lubricant on the mechanical parts. After all the years of use, the door mechanisms would have dried of lubricants.

Try to get a can of the popular lubricant WD-40 or similar, and spray it in the door locks/hinges/handles.
That should help it.

1995 Chevy suburban back door hinges too stiff

Lubricate the hinge or the hinge will have to be replaced.. I recommend wd40 first, then a finger tip amount of grease on top of hinge pin. the oil from the grease will keep the hinge constantly lubricated. It's not too late.
