Other than a broken tie rod end, common minor problem, I know they don't put grease fittings on them anymore, and considering the age of the car, it would be easy for them to give out. The tie rod end can be bought for about $50, shop around, you might find one cheaper. I hope it is just the end that gave out and not the rod itself, that would be something different. He might have hit something, causing the front end to go out of whack. You would have to get the front end aligned after replacing the parts. When you take the old one off, loosen the nut, take two big hammers, and knock the heck out of the side of it with one while holding the other one against it, It will pop out of the socket, unless it already fell out. Then loosen the clamp, count the number of turns it takes coming off, put the new one on the same number of turns. Get it in the socket, tighten up the nuts, you are all set. Hope this helps.

Hi, has the tie rod totally snapped and the wheel is buckled in or does it just need replacing, if it still in one piece but a bit wobbly then its a minor job to have put right and would only take an hour.

the tie rod is what goes from the hub to the steering rack, when you turn the wheel the tie rod pushes the wheel one way or the other turning the car for you, these tie rods get play in them and cause the wheel to wobble but it wont do any damage to the car itself but it will need replacing before it does break.

it also needs to be replaced at a garage as the tracking will need to be done to make sure the wheels are lined up correctly if they are not you will have bald tyres in a matter of weeks.

if the tie rods have snapped i would make sure you go and see the car and have a look to see if it has damaged the wing also get the car jacked up to make sure it has not damaged anything like the brake pipes or suspension, if its just the tie rod then this is very cheap to buy and not a problem to get fixed.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page on unrated posts, thanks

Thats an unusual thing to break unless its been in a COLLISION. It could need a steering rack, wheel alignment, frame or other damage. You better get a shop to check it out and estimate repaires BEFORE you buy it.

Tie rod ends are not to costly to replace but check the Ball joints and the front end during repair and then have a car allindment (ps because it is a foriegn model it might cost alittle more than a domestic.

My 1996 toyota camry is shaking a lot


1st check air pressure in tires make sure they are all set to 35psi.
If that don't fix it
2nd it would be out of line. Front end alignment will be needed.
3rd inner tie Rod ends may be worn out.
If you fix all of these and your problem still exist then it would be your inner tie rods.

But 1st i would check pressure in tires and go from there.

Tie rod replacement on 1994 toyota camry


That is an easy job, especially if you have this tool, which is widely available under different brands

http://www.comparestoreprices.co.uk/images/sy/sykes-pickavant-ball-joint-separator.jpg

There is another type of tool which looks like a big tuning fork. I don't like them, as they tend to cause damage to the parts.

Mark the tie rod end and its locknut, and the steering rod, before removal, and count the number of turns needed to remove the old tie rod end so that you can install the new one pretty nearly in the same position. You will still need a wheel alignment after. More info is here.

How to replace a tie rod on 98 toyota camry


With the car off the ground wheel off. Take the cotter pin out from the tie rod. Loosen the castle nut almost all the way. Then with a hammer hit the spindle were the tie rod goe into. Make sure to hit just the hard cast steel of the spidle nothing else. Loosen the locking nut from the tie rod. Mark the spot were the tie rod is or count the revolutions as you are taking it of. So when you install the new one you can get it back in the same place. It is rec. that you still go get and alignment, but if you mark it you will be very close the original position.

Make sure the tie rod ends are greased up, if that is possible.
