Question about 2002 Jaguar X-Type

1 Answer

Cars sways when making ramps type turns

When driving at any speed and making a slow left or right turn, the whole car seem to yaw or sway the the left and right before settling down into a straght line. Even going over a hill can make this happen. Since the problem has begun, I have had my shocks and stuts replaced and wheels aligned. While the suspension work seems to have improved the problem marginally and the car rides better, the problem persists.

Is the sway bar on a 2002 PT Cruiser necessary? Can it be removed without causing any future problems?

While it can be done I don't think there is a person who would recommend it. Regardless of if it is the front or the rear, they both do a lot to stabilize the car in a turn. The sway bar basically ties one side of the car to the other so it doesn't 'sway' too much during a turn. If you are making a hard left turn the car wants to lean left as well, picking up the right side of the car. The sway bar prevents this.
So, while the car will still run and may even seem like it is driving ok, it will be unsafe.

Grinding noise front end left side at highway speeds and when turning wheel back and forth at high way speeds

Sounds like front wheel bearings.
Does the sound go away when swaying one way or the other?
If you way left and ot gets louder it should be the right bearing and opposite for swaying right

1997 xj6 jagaur front end seems to give into turns , slight fish tail affect. Can sway bares help?

Sway bars can always help for yaw and body roll. If the shocks/dampners have not been changed though, sounds like time. Very nice cars. Let me know if you need anything else.

I have a 1999 ford taurus se. There is a knocking or cluncking noise that is coming from the front. It does not happen all of the time. Mostly when going over small bumps on the road. Even while driving...

One of the most common would be the sway bar links and or sway bar bushings. The best way of checking them is to keep the wheels at normal riding height don't jack up car use car ramps or aliment rack then grab the sway bar close to the sway bar links push up and down should have NO play. The sway bar bushings you can do the same but there harder to tell. If you look at the clearance between the bar and bushing there should be none. Also if you can get the car to make the noise while pushing down on the front end use car ramps so you can get under the car while someone else pushes. Noises sometimes can be a nightmare so goodluck.

Grinding noise braking at slow speed hard right turn

The problem is either a bad CV joint or is it possible that the brakes are worn.
