Question about 1987 Toyota Pickup

I am considering replacing the clutch on my Toyo 1987 4x4 pick up by myselt. I'm a relative novice (I've done brakes, steering, tie rods, etc., but nothing like this before). Is this something I should attempt?

Your clutch is pretty easy for that truck but you do have to do some rather heavy lifting if you do it with a standard floor jack. I suggest renting a trans jack and other than that its all simple nuts and bolts. when you drop the trans be cautious and balance the transfer case or it might get a little tricky putting it back in. Other than that it normally takes an at home on your back swap about 2 to 3 hours for an average mechanic. And also there are some good captions from a standard chilton manual. good luck

Ball joint bolt fell out upper in 2007 GMC Envoy


Upper ball joint? That's not related to the job of replacing a tie rod or tie rod end. It's also not related to the brake job.

It's an '07 and it had a bolt-in ball joint? That's not factory - it's been replaced before.

Vibrating steering wheel & pedals


I would replace ALL motor & transxale mounts if they are
over 8 years old
I would suspect, as usual, the shops don't remove rust or lube
a thing on brakes,I would do that Take them apart again
Recheck all work that was done
I would drag the brake while on the gas, when it
vibrates, to turn off the trans torque converter clutch
& see if that is an issue.
Could have a bad axle joint
I would in no way trust any shop to have done
a though job of what your saying.
You most likely have worn inner ties rod joints on the
steering rack,something else to check
What about tie rod ends & ball joints & upper strut bearings?

How hard is it to fix a broken tie rod in a1995 isuzu rodeo


wp_20150427_18_33_35_pro_zpsw60dn6xc-lkwhkfwj330knc5ai5uhyzz2-4-0.jpg you need to remove the nut allway then screw back on and hit the to or the coupling area, this will release the shaft so you don't get hit by the rod. do this on both ends, when removed measure the length of the rod, if its the same make as the one replacing count the treds and put the new one to the same length, this will keep your tracking in line as much as possible, then tighten the nuts. and fit. push the shaft into the original hole and tighten down with the nut, its always best to do both times when they are replaced, as they would both take the impact and the impact of the road. should only take a novice a couple of hours to do both sides, if steering out i would recommend getting the tracking done as the accident could of move other parts out of alignment.

1 PUT ON YOUR EMERGENCY BREAK, LOOSEN THE WHEEL NUTS ON THE FRONT WHEELS,JACK UP THE CAR AND REMOVE THE FRONT WHEEL. WITH SOME YELLOW PAINT ,MARK THE THREADS WHERE IT SCREWS INTO THE TIE ROD END SO YOU KNOW HOW FAR TO SCREW THE NEW ON ONTO. TAKE OUT THE COTTER PIN AND REMOVE THE CASTLE NUT FROM THE ROD. USE A PRY BAR TO SEPERATE THE BOLT FROM THE TIE ROD END. ONCE SEPARATED YOU SHOULD BE ABLE UNSCREW THE OLD TIE ROD END OFF THE SHAFT..TAKE THE NEW ONE AND SCREW IT BACK ON ONLY TO THE YELLOW PAINT MARK THAT YOU MADE ON THE ROD EARLIER. THEN JUST REASSEMBLE THE SAME WAY YOU TOOK IT APART. MAKE SURE YOU TORQUE THE NUT TO 50 LBS.AND BE SURE TO USE A NEW COTTER PIN ON THE CASTLE NUT..

I have a 97 Honda Accord. Recently I just replaced both cv axles, the upper and lower ball joints, and also the tie rod ends... After putting the car back together I realized my steering doesn't recenter....


The most common reason for this problem is that you haven't got a proper tie rod adjustment. The tie rods need to be adjusted so that you have the same distance. You can use a standard tape measure and with the car on a flat level surface with the tires straight, have a friend help you measure from the one wheel to the other. You need to measure from the front of the tire using the same reference points on both tires ( like the farthest outside tread groove.) once you have the measurement on the front of the tires then move to the back side of the tires and measure again, using the same reference points, the outside tread groove. The measurements should be within 3/ 16 of an inch and should be slightly shorter in the front. For example if you measured the front @ 4' 41/2" then the back of the tire should be from 4' 4 1/2" to 4' 11/16". The front wheels will be slightly toed in of pointing at each other but no more then 3/ 16 of an inch. If you measurement are off then you will need to adjust the tie rods to get a even measurement. Also you may find that your steering wheel is off center if you don't have them adjusted correctly.
I would really recommend that you just take this and have an alignment done, they are relatively inexpensive considering you have replaced the tie rods and this will make for easy adjustment.

Ty rod. how to replace?


take the nut off that holds the tie rod tapered shaft onto the steering knuckle.wack the steering knuckle with a big hammer on the spot were the tie rod end goes through. it a sideways hit, paralel to the ground. NOT the threaded stud. the impact[s] cause the stud to jump up out of the hole.it may take a few hits. be carefull not to hit wires/brake rotor etc.then lossen lock nut on the shaft and unscrew the tie rod end.one is left handed one is right. try to count how many complete turn it takes to remove tie rod, and put new one on the same number of turns.you will be in the ball park but you will need the toe in/out reset.

Can someone tell me what Tie Rod Ends are? I've been told by my mechanic that I need to replace them. Why does the car need to be realigned when I get this service?


The tie rod is part of the steering mechanism. If you replace these they will not be exactly the same as the old ones which may have changed shape over time etc... Here is a very good site for info relating to your car and helps with all the technical stuff... http://news.carjunky.com/how_stuff_works/what-is-a-tie-rod-abc170.shtml

I just bought a 93 honda civic and I took it to goodyear and they said I needed my tie rods tightend is there a way I can do it myself?


Yes. If it's to correct alignment, the inner tie rod shaft has to be moved into your outer tie rod and then tightened. this is all done from the wheel area.

If it is to correct play in the steering, then this should apply.

The inner tie rod connection to the Rack unit is hidden by the rack boot which will need to be removed from the Rack unit but not completely removed from the shaft, just pushed over out of the way while working on the inner tie rod adjustment. The large nut on the end of the inner tie rod will have to be loosened & checked, for any damage, then reinstalled & tightened to the correct amount necessary to cause sufficient drag on the inner tie rod but not too much to restrict it during normal use.

You may even want to consider a remanufactured Rack unit if you have too much slack in the steering. Tightening the Inner Tie Rods doesn't replace the seals & rebuild the remainder of the Rack & Pinion, yet these parts all have the same amount of wear on them that the Inner Tie Rod does.

Manuals available w/step by step instructions for your vehicle at parts stores. good luck
