When should I change the shock on my Toyota Tacoma 2007?


Assuming you have inspected the shocks and there's no obvious leaks, cracks, tears, etc.

The classic "bounce" test is to get on the corner you want to test (in this case, one side of the rear bumper) and jump up and down to get the corner bouncing, then hop off. The shocks should stabilize the car in one-and-a-half gyrations (so, when you hop off, it should go up, down, up and then stop bouncing). If it's more, shocks are starting to wear out.

How it handles when driving is the other big indication. If it sways too much on sharp turns or dives too much when you break hard, those are signs that the shocks are starting to wear out, too.

Wheel hop rear wheels


you have bad shocks-and- or tires that need replaced-while car is setting try to push down on the rear and see if it goes down easily and then bounces when released-jack rear end up-try to spin tires and see if they spin freely-check tires for cupping or funny wear patterns-you also may have brake shoe that are coming apart and locking a wheel up without putting on the brakes-so lots of options here-hope you get it solved-cheers Denny

Grand cherokee jerking movement


I have a 2000 Grand Jeep Cherokee, I was driving along the freeway maybe doing about 60mph when my jeep suddenly jerked, when it did this my emissions light came on. I pulled over in a parking lot checked all my fluids oil, transmission fluid, everything seemed okay, as I was getting back on the freeway I watched the R PMs that was fine and my emission light went off. After driving for about 5 minutes it did it again and my emissions light came back on, I did notice this time it seemed to be in the rear where this Jerking/ Bucking came from can anyone help??? PLEASE

Seat warmers not working 2005 ford f350


well first of all does the button for the heated seats light up? if so then it is not a fuse problem. usually the heater pad itself. disconnect the connector and check with a ohm meter. if the meter reads open the element is shot. as for the 4 wheel drive will have a wheel hop when turning corners this is normal due to front and rear wheel trying to push in different derections. if it happens all the time the gears in the diff might be different from front to back. check to see if a diff overhaul was done if so.
