Question about 1999 Toyota Camry

1999 toyota camry tracking issues

I have had issues with my car since 9000 miles. wears out tires and all ways pulls to the right. the whole rear end has been replaced, breaks, 4 sets of tires and car even reacts differently over the same roads. Sometimes even turning left off of a road the car feels like it hops. I have had to replace some steering bars in the front one even snapped. Other than this issue I have had great performance. The Engine can compete with anything I have test drove recently. Any Ideas? The only two things I haven't tried the motor mounts or CV joint. They claim the CV joint is fine but I still wonder since the surface change of a road makes a difference. Thanks for your time and input.

"whole rear end has been replaced ....... wears out tires and all ways pulls to the right, ....replace some steering bars" indicates that likeley this work of reparation has not been made carefully and that the four wheels are not parallel, each moving in a different direction, both to the right and the left, because the body of the car is distorted or twisted.
You must in a good garage mechanic measure the different wrong angles and twist back the body of the car, to put again the wheel parallels with the right angles indicated by Toyota.
It is complex and often expensive putting the car on a "marble".
It is not always possible to solve completely, but for your very strong twist, it is possible to improve to some extend, reversing the twist of accident, even if it is not perfect, so that the wears of tires becomes small with pulling no more to the right.

"it gets a four wheel aligned with every 5000 miles" likely is not made correctly, for all the complex angles ( very difficult after an accident) or there is some thing loose or too weak, moving easily so that the car is changing of shape for the wheels .

Have you checked the tire pressures? Uneven tire pressures can cause issues like this.

SOURCE: 2004 camry, vibration right front

If the wheel is in balance and there is no other signs of what is causing the vibration than yes that cv joint should be chk. Is the strut ok? might want to chk. that too.

SOURCE: 1991 toyota camry front drivers side makes noise while driving

It's the left front wheel bearing. Take it to your favorite mechanic if you have one, any good tech can do it, but he/she could run into complications with a car of that age. (The hip bone's connected to the thigh bone, the thigh bone's connected to the knee bone, etc, and there's probably a good share of corrosion down there).

SOURCE: I have trouble steering...the truck

when the steering wheel is centred, the front wheels should both point slightly inwards.
after the amount of parts changed, i would recommend that you get the tracking checked at a garage using the proper, calibrated measuring systems, to make sure that the steering is set up properly and safely.

1999 Toyota rear window off tract and will not stay up


HI,
I just had the same problem. What happened is the joint on the track must be broke. What you will need is a new track which you can change yourself it is really simple took me about 20 minutes. Just go to your local autozone and purchase the track. I would recommend to change the motor as well so your not back at it later down the road but that your call. Either way all you have to do is change the track. I hope this helps.

How do i know if i need a four wheel alignment or 2 wheel


Most front wheel drive cars are good with a front end alignment. You can go by how the tires are wearing. If the rears have been on there for a while, and are wearing normal, not cupped or wearing on the side, they should be good.

95 CAMRY LE 3L HAS VIBRATION AT 40KPH, REPLACED REAR AXLE/DIF. THE PROBLEM IS LESS BUT NOT GONE. IS THERE SOMETHING ELSE GOING ON DO YOU THINK?


Check your tires. They could be out of balance or need to be replaced all together. Also, make sure no one put stop leak in the tires. My brother took his whole front end apart and found out later on that someone had put stop leak in one of the tires and it had ruined the tire from the inside so that the only way to tell it was bad was to take the tire off the rim. Check the tread for a separation or a bubble in the sidewall.

My front tires are cupped almost bald on the inside and outside. almost all tread left in the center


under inflation is the first thing that come to my mind and lack of rotation and possibly shocks or struts that are shot. If your tires are worn down only in the center its usually overinflation.

Rear wheel alignment


first of all firestone are rip off artist. you got suckered. next there are struts on the back and yes you should align them however it has more to do with how the tire wears than a steering issue. with only 12,000 miles I seriously doubt there would have been a problem. my solution would have been if one of the front tires was bad i would have replaced it then took the 2 back tires and put them on front and the new tire and other front tire on the back and no alignment would have been needed unless your girlfriend would have complained about it tracking one way or the other. feel free to click on my user tab anytime you need help.... please rate this.........thanks
