Check the power steering fluid,if it is fine,then the power steering pump,or rack could be the cause.

Feels like my front drivers side tire is lose but I check all the lugg nuts and they are tight. I can drive straight and I get a loud sqweal(as if I'm taking a corner to sharp) from the passenger side...


sounds like you have either tie/thrust rod ends going bad, or ball joints. Your wheel bearings could be going bad as well. Any of these can cause this problem. To check the tie/thrust rod ends, turn the vehicle off, and have a friend turn the wheel back and forth while you look at the steering linkages. If you see anything moving more than the part that it's attached to, you have found something that needs replacing right away. For Ball joints, put a jack on the a-arm right beside the wheel. Jack it up, and watch the tire as it starts to come off the ground. If it slides out when it just gets off the ground, you have bad ball joints on that side. Wheel/hub bearings can be trickier, unless they're REALLY worn. Jack the car up so that it's clear of the ground, and see if you can make the wheel wobble by moving it with your hands. You may also notice a grinding or whining sound coming from the affected side. You'll especially notice it if you drive with your window down, as you're passing a building or other hard object, as the sound reflects back at you. Hope this helped you find your problem.

Grinding rubbing sound from front axle and is not brakes?


More than likely a bad front wheel bearing. You may be able to jack up the front and feel a loose front wheel at the hub but often times you can't so you have to try and determine which one by driving the car. Try driving on a smooth road and gently do S turns down the road. The noise will usually come and go as you turn from side to side. Have someone else in the car to help you listen, sometimes it can be hard to determine which side and you have to just replace both, but really, they've both got the same mileage.

Hard low speed turns


Crawl under the truck and look at the steering linkage. You may have to have someone turn the steering wheel while under. Do not crawl under without supporting the vehicle and placing chocks in front of the wheels. While someone turns the wheel look for binding where there are moving parts. Look at your tie rods and steering arm. Does it turn hard in one direction only? If so look at the side your turning into. Is this a four wheel drive? You may be in four wheel drive? Low speed turns with four wheel drive can cause torquing on dry pavement.

If the noise changes when you turn side to side while driving you have bad wheel bearing. (Hub Assy)

Sounds like something hits under passenger side near front of car. My son decribes it as a hard grinding sound. Thank you, Mrs. Margaret A. Hunt mhunt3@bak.rr.com (661) 283-0674 (661) 4285005 my cell (661)...


Does the sound only occur when you're turning the wheel? If so, it may be a failing CV joint.. It could also be a loose drive axle connecting rod. My 97 Tercel CE had an unusual problem: there is a strange rubber/metal "donut" thing which is mounted on the main drive axle, mine came loose and was whacking around along the axle's shaft.

If you remove the passenger side front wheel, then take off the splash guard (two 10mm bolts on the side in the wheel well + two 10mm nuts on the front) you can see the drive axle. If the rubber/metal stabilizer donut has broken loose from the clips which hold it in place, then it will whack around regardless of what speed/direction you're going.

In my case, in the end I was too lazy to disconnect the drive axle and wheel assembly, so I just took some large zip ties and re-fastened the donut into approximately the proper place on the drive axle. That solved my problem, and it runs smoothly now.

Hopefully it's not your CV joint! Hope this helps.

This sounds like a wheel bearing close to complete disintegration. I advise you get the front end free of the ground so you can check for it by grasping the wheel and attempting to rock it from side to side. It isn't hard to imagine that if it is indeed that worn, that the wheel could separate possibly taking the axle and CV joint with it. Don't take any chances - it's urgent that you find the problem quickly.
