Your brake pads may be worn and the rotors and brake pads need to be replaced and if the heat has damaged the brake calipers they may need to be replaced too. Best to have both sides done, the other cause would be the wheel hub bearing has failed and needs to be replaced. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

There`s a big bolt on the driver side of the rack and pinion of my 99 chevy Silverado LS two wheel driver.. if I loosen it, will it free the wheels from the steering wheel so I can align them back


I strongly recommend getting it computer aligned. Your eyes are nowhere near as good as the sensors on one of those machines. You're talking fractions of a degree on some of those angles. They'll check out your front end free before they make adjustments. If the cops recovered the car and you can get the police report, submit it to your insurance.

Wheel noise


Check to see if anything is around wheel that could be touching wheel while driving. Make sure rim and wheel fender are clean of debris. Possible cv joint failure, but that makes a clicking noise.

Sounds like the rotors may be needing resurfacing. The rotor may be out of round or worn down to the metal causing your brake pads to wear out quickly.

2006 chrysler pacifica-wheel hubs burning hot


The problem might have already been there,the steel wheels are making it noticeable,because they don`t cool down as quick.Most likely is the calipers sticking,or you have a set of high dollar brake pads on the vehicle,and they are heating the rotors up.The high dollar pads are a very hard composite pad witch produce a lot of friction,and heat as a sort of side affect.

jack up the left side so the left wheel is off the ground and start the vehicle and spin the wheel up to about 30 mph and you should hear the same noise and if not jack up the right side and do the same

Front driver side buzzing noise on a 2004 Cavalier


Hello Timothy...

Drop into your local tire shop and have the suspect tire and rim checked out. You may have knocked a balancing weight off or bent the rim.

Better safe than sorry.
