It most likely needs a ball joint or tie rod end,have an alignment done,if there is a bad part they will find it.

Tire pressure says sensor fault it's a 2009 Mercury mariner do I need to replace or can it be reset


The "tire pressure sensor fault" message is an indication that there is a problem with the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). A tire pressure monitoring system is required for all motor vehicles manufactured after 2007. The pressurized air inside the tire is monitored by the TPMS. The TPMS consists of tire pressure sensors which are placed inside each wheel. These sensors provide the driver with information regarding the actual tire pressure of each tire in real time.
All car tires are tubeless, unlike bike tires that have an inner tube that when filled with air inflates the rubber tire. Tubeless car tires have an inner core that is filled with pressurized air. The tire should be filled based on the manufacturer's specified PSI. This can usually be found on a sticker on the driver's side door or trunk. If the tire is overinflated or underinflated, this could cause damage to the tire and/or hazardous driving conditions.
Problems that are possible when a tire is overinflated:
  • Shorter lifespan of the tire
  • Broken tire belt
  • Uneven wear on the tread
  • Bad traction-specifically in the rain and snow
  • Difficult to steer and/or maneuver (it may feel as if you are driving on ice)
  • Decreased friction
  • Driver may experience a harsh ride
  • Could cause damage to the suspension
  • Tire may blowout/explode
Problems that are possible when a tire is underinflated:
  • Shorter lifespan of the tire
  • Make cause the tread to separate
  • Premature wear on the tread
  • Decreased fuel economy
  • Difficult to steer and/or maneuver (it may feel harder to turn with precision)
  • Increased friction
  • Tire may blowout/explode

Keep getting uneven wear on rear tire for 2004 lincoln ls


if the wear is on the inside of the tread ---wheel bearings , failed suspension bush,arm
if it is on the outside of the tire tread ,-- bent lower control arm
if it is patchy around the tire ---failed shocky
it is appears as if the tread is feathered towards one side of the tread--- wheel alignment
Tack it to an accredited suspension specialist shop for a proper examination and a rear wheel alignment

Does traction control system cause tires to wear out faster


No, Traction control only engages when slippery conditions exist. So unless you live in the snow belt or drive on wet muddy dirt roads you may likely never experience a traction control engagement.

I replaced the tires on my 2003 mitsubishi eclipse 2 months ago & the front two have worn to the wires on both sides. a week ago there was still some tread on them. why could this be happening?


1. What brand and model of tire was fitted?

2. Please describe the wear pattern on the front tires in more detail. For example is the excessive tread wear.....
A. Right across the face of the tread on each tire or
B. On the outside edges of the tread on each tire or
C. on the inside edges of the tread on each tire or
D. on both sides of the tread but not on the center section of the tread on both tires.
-----------------------------------------------------
B is normally caused by incorrect toe setting - toe in
C is also normally caused by incorrect toe setting - toe out
D is normally caused by tire pressure set way too low.

Faulty steering and suspension components can also cause abnormal tire wear for any component that affects the wheel alignment settings.
------------------------------------------------------------------
If you can provide a better description of the tire wear on each front tire you will get a better answer.

What is the recommended tire pressure on the 05 fx ? ive been running 34psi, but this winter i ran 40psi. someone told me that over inflatining caused my right front tire to wear on the center treads...


Too much air pressure (cold tire temp) when filling, will cause center tire wear. The pressure recommendations and recommended tire sizes are located on the inside driver side door panel.

"Check tire pressure" light still on.???


pls follow these instructions:

Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Tire Gauges
  • Tread Depth Gauge
  1. Step 1 Let the tires cool before checking their pressure (tires are more inflated when warm, less when cold).
  2. Step 2check-add-air-1.2-120x120.jpg jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep2 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.co.uk/images/a00/01/q9/check-add-air-1.2-800X800.jpg'); }); Remove the cap from the valve on 1 tire.
  3. Step 3check-add-air-1.3-120x120.jpg jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep3 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.co.uk/images/a00/01/q9/check-add-air-1.3-800X800.jpg'); }); Press a tire gauge hard onto the valve and note the reading. The sound of escaping air means you haven't inserted the gauge properly: it's either pressed on askew or you're pressing too lightly.
  4. Step 4 Add air to achieve recommended pressure, which is listed on a sticker on the driver's side doorjamb and in the car's manual. If you overfill, you can release air by pushing on the tiny metal stem in the center of the valve with a fingernail or the tip of a pen or pencil. If you need to guess, 32 psi (pounds per square inch) is a good rule of thumb for most passenger cars with standard tires.
  5. Step 5check-add-air-1.5-120x120.jpg jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep5 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.co.uk/images/a00/01/q9/check-add-air-1.5-800X800.jpg'); }); Replace the valve cap.
  6. Step 6 Repeat with each tire, including the spare (the status of its pressure is often forgotten until it's needed, and then it's too late).
  7. Step 7 Check the tread depth. Recommended depth differs with types of tires. For a standard sedan tire, a penny pushed into the tread can give you a rough reading. If you can see any of Lincoln's head, it may be time to replace the tire. A $15 tread-depth gauge can give you a more accurate reading. There may also be wear indicators built into the tread; if they show, replace the tire.
  8. Step 8 Check for even wear (see "How to Interpret Your Car's Tire Wear.") If the treads on the outside or inside are particularly worn, you may need to rotate your tires or have your alignment checked.
jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });

REAR WHEEL ALIGNMENT
TOE-IN : 0±2 mm (0±0.08 in.)
note_icon.gif 1. The rear suspension lower arm mounting cam bolt should be turned an equal amount on both sides during adjustment. Right wheel : Clockwise direction : toe-in Left wheel : Clockwise direction : ton-out Maximum difference between LH and RH : 3mm 2. The cam bolt should be adjusted within a 90° range left or right from the center position. CAMBER Standard value : 0°±30´ Maximum difference between LH and RH : 3mm : 0±2 mm (0±0.08 in.) note_icon.gif 1. The rear suspension upper arm mounting cam bolt should be turned an equal amount on both sides during adjustment. 2. Install the left and right springs which have the same identification color. 3. The cam bolt should be adjusted within a 90° range left and right from the center position.e55b100.gif TIRE WEAR 1. Measure the tread depth of the tires. Tread depth of tire [Limit] : 1.6 mm (0.06 in.) 2. If the remaining tread depth is less than the limit, replace the tire. note_icon.gif When the tread depth of the tire is reduced to 1.6 mm (0.06 in.) or less, the wear indicators will appear.
