The hydraulic oil that is inside the strut is coming out externally meaning that the seal that contains the fluid to the inside of the strut is bad.This leads to struts not doing there job properly and will cause premature tire wear as well a decrease in vehicle handling and stability performance .The only correction is have the struts replaced.

While driving it seems like it drives over road bumps hard. I have checked the struts and shocks for bottoming out, oil leaks and tire pressure. Everything seems to be good?


Just because the struts have no leaks doesn't mean they are not worn out, the fronts last about 50-70,000 miles (average road) depending on road conditions, the rougher the road conditions the faster they wear out.

I have a 2007 Suburban, and the lift gate opens up about 1/4 the way and then drops to the closed position. This happens regardless of how it's opened.


{: ) Your liftgate struts (shocks) could have gone weak. If it's a power liftgate, press the off button to disable the power liftgate function, so that you can open the liftgate manually. With a little help from you, extend the liftgate at full open position and check if it will hold itself up there as it normally should. If it starts to fall off as you catch it, that means the liftgate struts don't have enough pressure anymore to push and sustain the weight of the liftgate. Check for signs of leak on the struts, or better if you can replace it both.

I own a Toyota Camry LE 2006 . Recently I took it for a 36 point inspection. The inspector told me that I needed to do some fixtures on the vehice. However, I do not understand the meaning s. Can you...


What engine size? how many miles on the vehicle?

1: Leaking Water pump - How do I notice this in the car ?

Typically you will see a lot of dried up coolant around the water pump. If the coolant level gets low enough it will cause the vehicle to over heat and potentially do a lot of damage.

Water pumps are extremely common on these years.

2. Under Steering components it says Rack is Leaking, Passenger bellow torn open.

The rack is the part that turns the wheels left and right. If a bellow is torn and there is fluid coming out of it than the seals in the rack have gone bad. Eventually enough fluid will leak out and cause the power steering to no longer work and possibly ruin the power steering pump.

3. LF Strut /stunt is seeping.

It means that the oil on the strut is starting to leak out. The strut is what absorbs the bumps in the road and holds your tires down on the road. Eventually the strut will loose its ability to do this and the tires will start to cup. It is not uncommon for struts to show signs of leaking and is usually the first indicator that the strut is starting to fail.

Hope that helped.

2006 Toyota 4runner sport 4.0L V6 2wd bottoms out too easy on front.


Hummmmmm........ either:

(1) Your front struts are worn out or leaking; or,

(2) Your driving style is too aggressive or loads too heavy for your stock suspension to handle.

Jack the front of the car up and remove each front wheel. Look at the strut body to see if there are any signs of leaking fluid or if anything is broken or otherwise amiss. If the struts are leaking, then I suggest you replace with something other than standard replacement Monroe shocks (either Blistiens or Ranchos). If the struts are not leaking, then maybe your driving style is too aggressive for the stock suspension. If this is the case, then upgrade as necessary or change your driving style. Front suspension upgrade would start at $700 and go up from there depending upon the modifications.

I think one of my struts (or a part next to a strut) is leaking fluid, How do I stop it?


when the strut is leaking oil then you need the get the whole strut changed...
usually only good mechanics know how to change them...
if a normal person tries to change it by himself...
he could get himself killed! the strut spring would fly in the person in the speed on light and kill him...
Good Luck!

Coolant leak


I don't know what you mean by struts on the plug. If this is the plug on the lower radiator reservoir the cheap fix is to silicone a new plug and reinstall it. Don't over tighten. If the silicone doesn't work you may have to have a shop replace the tank they're in. If it's plastic, the whole radiator is toast.If it's metal a radiator shop can re-solder it.
