How Can I remove a rusted rear wheel on my pickup?


whack it with a big hammer. Or, loosen the nuts a few turns, drive it down the road swerving back and forth (preferably where the cops don't see you), may break the wheel loose. Use penetrating oil first and let it sit for awhile. Last resort, use heat

Swerves alot while driving


Something seriously loose or worn:

- steering box mounts
- steering column universal joint or end clamp
- steering box inner ball joints
- tie rod ends
- outer ball joints
- wheel centre hub nut
- wheel stud nuts

A simple test is to jack up both front wheels and place the vehicle on axle stands. Then have someone hold the steering wheel, grab a front wheel at the 9-and-3 o'clock position, and shake it hard in and out. If you can feel slack or looseness, or the person holding the steering wheel can, you have a dangerous fault which should be fixed ASAP.

What makes my 2002 Pontiac Firebird grind when driving and/or turning?


Sounds like a wheel bearing. Jack up front end and spin wheels by hand and listen for grind. Same for rear wheels. Make sure brake linings are good all around. Do the swerve test. Drive down road bout 40mph and swerve moderately one side to other. If noise gets louder with weight shifted to one side more than other its most likely a wheel bearing.

How can you tell if my ball joints are going out


While driving down the road, if when you hit a bump, and your car's front end seems to shake or your steering wheel shakes from the bump; that is a good sign to have your ball joints looked at.

What are some of the symptoms that you are experiencing?

Front end of 2006 Lumina 3.6 swerves over 120 kp/h and feels loose over bumps.


Check front tie rods...this is a major safety issue...also probably need alignment or have bad tire (seperarted belt) causing the swerve, and pulling condition...The tie rods are not to expensive to resolve this safety problem...Hope this helps.

it might be the tire pressure or the shocks. if the pressure is too high it can feel that way. it could also be the suspension.
