Take a look at your belt tension. Your belt could be worn or your idler wheel count be worn. Do not try to use any type belt dressing it does not work. What is happening is when you first start the car it takes a moment for the belt to catch up with the engines rpms.

Shuddering can be caused by many things. Most often it's clutch wear or oil on the friction plates. If it happens when the car has warmed up, then that's a likely one.

It could be engine or gearbox mountings, although I would not expect it on a car for many, many miles. Worth checking though.

01 chrysler tc mini van squeels when i start it and now is squeeling and pulling the steering wheel when i turn, does this mean i need a ned power steering pump?


No! It appears that your Serpentine Belt needs replacing. The squeal is due to the belt slipping because of it's age. The serpentine belt on a Chrysler is self adjusting so "high speed glaze" or "cracks" in the wide belt will tell you it needs replacement. The only other belt you have separate from the Serpentine Belt is the one for the Air Conditioner. Another word to the wise, never use "Belt Dressing" on these belts. It only makes them deteriorate faster. If you have an old table candle, while the engine's running, place the wax on the underside of the belt and the squeaking should go away. (I feel like, 'what to do with those darn Holiday leftovers'). To see the belt jumping or squealing, have someone start the van and look under the hood while they turn the steering wheel back and forth and you will see the belt "shudder" or "jump" while squealing. A timing light being pointed at the belt will also give you a "stop-action" view of the belt.

No Rack and Pinion yet. (smile) Hope this Helps,

My kia front brakes vibrate and the car shudders


take your car to a brake shop and have the rotors turned if your vibration and shuddering is occurring when you actually apply the brakes.

My car runs bad


I'll assume you want to make it run better... Does it hesitate? Sound bad? Shudder? Squeal? You should be more specific so I can help. Of hand I would say do a tune-up. This includes spark plug wires, spark plugs, cap, rotor, maybe an oil change, lube the grease points. Let me know!

Jeep has been giving me problems starting for about a week. just shudders like its not getting fuel until i give it gas and it warms up. Today i had it running for a couple min. I started backing up and it...


See if you can hear your fuel pump go on when you first turn your key if not replace it. It should have a humming noise when you first turn your key.
