Question about 2001 Suzuki Swift

1 Answer

My wheel rim is frozen onto the car. i have used PB blaster and free all, soaking the wheel studs and and any other part i can get to. I have used a mini sledge to try and free it, all to no avail. They have usually came off in the past after some serious effort as I previously described, but this time i am stuck and my brake sqeeler is sounding off. Any help would be appreciated.

How do i get the to stud bolts off of my oil pan?it is a 87 gmc safari 4,3

Dear David,
I had the same problem with my vehicle with the same transmission. I found the studs to be incredibly tight.
Some shop tips.
Remember the transmission case is aluminum, so you must be gentle but firm on this.
Soak the studs./bolts with penetrating fluid a day or two ahead of time.
I use PB BLaster, it works well.
Then take a socket that fits the head of the studs, nuts, or bolts and install it, and begin to tap it ( the socket) with a hammer.
It could take you many hits, like maybe 100!
About every 10 licks, try to loosen by turning with a ratchet or handle.
You are convincing the bolt/stud to loosen.
God bless your efforts.

The tire will not come off the bolts are off and we tried with a rummer malat and cloth to harmmer it off roadside service couldn't get it off

Sounds like the rim is seized to the disc/drum. It's going to take a bigger hammer to take that wheel off. Sometimes, soaking the space between the two with something like PB Blaster can help.

How to take off a stuck idler arm. I tried a puller & hammer no luck. It is frozen stiff. Any help/ ideas is GREATLY APPRECIATED.

If your trying to remove the pitman arm, the one that is attached to the gear box, than sometimes you just have to use a torch to heat them up.

I can't get the wheels off of my car

all i can recommend here, is get a good penetrating oil...spray around the lug nuts holes and center hub of the wheel...have someone spin the wheel as you hit the the back of the TIRE not the rim, as hard as you can with a heavy hammer, and that should break them free...if not, then you can use heat around the same areas and just keep hitting again,...that usually works....i suppose if all else fails, you can turn the wheels one way, let it off the jack stands, and SLOWLY back up and that is usually enough to break free the corrosion and free up the rims...once moved back like only 8" then jack up car there...go from there...but please do be very very careful....

Changing Tire

the rim is likely rusted to the hub use a penetrating spray such as pb blaster or aerokroil at the wheel studs. also you can try this put the lug nuts on loosely and drive the vehicle back and forth this sometimes will loosen the wheel. you can also smack the tire from the inside with a hammer be careful not to hit the rim. hope this helps

Hole in oil pan

Yes you can do it in the car.The only thing that may hinder you is you have to remove the Y-pipe and the nuts on the studs may be extremely rusted,so make sure you soak them really good with PB Blaster or eqivalent before trying to take them loose.
