Question about 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

2 Answers

I have a 2004 chevy Avavlanche. When I bought it the vehicle pulled to the right. The dealership rotated the tires and said it was good. Since then I have replaced the rims and wheels. After three different allignments I still have a sloppy pull to the right. I bought a after market idler arm and pitman and I still have the same problem. Has any one else had front end discrepancies with chevy's of this year. ???

No this isn't a Chevy problem.The repairs were not made correctly.Never pay for work like this before you have made sure the repair made is correctly done.Once you leave and notice the problem still exists ,turn around and tell them it's not suitable.They know if it's not .The rims and wheels are not a issue (bad rims make the steering wheel wobble ).Take it to a frame repair because they can show you a bent frame and if it's not bent ,they will do the alignment.First give the last servicer the chance to correct what they have done if they are at fault. Don't worry ,this problem is easily fixed if you take it a frame repair center. Good Luck . Please Rate this !!! Thank You !

I was told by a Chevy dealership that you don't rotate 1993 corvette. Is this true?


Most people don't since there are two issues that make it difficult.
First, the tires on the front are a different size than the ones on the rear. Thus you cannot do the standard front-to-rear rotation.

Second, the tires have a directional tread pattern. This means that to rotate the tires from one side to the other they must be dismounted, turned, remounted and re-balanced.

Rotation is good to prevent excessive edge wear than can occur, but the time and cost for rotation on this car can be something to make you think twice about.

Keep pulling when i press the gas


If the wheel alignment has been done recently and you haven't hit any major pot holes/curbs check tire pressure first to make sure all are even. You may have a bad tire causing the pull as well. You can rotate the front tires to the back and retest for the pull.If pull is still present, you may have a torque steer issue or steering/suspension problem. Has the ride height been modified? Check font end components ( tie rods/ball joints/control arm bushings for wear ). Make sure you are using a flat road surface to determine the pull. Most engineers design the road crown for water to flow off on the right side so the vehicle will always want to go to the right slightly. Keep this in mind

How to reset the low tire pressure light in dashboad on a 2004 chevy impala


There should be a reset button in the fuse pannel. It can be used to reset the low tire pressure light , and the change oil light.
Instructions should be in owners manual , or you can google it.
Chevy dealership should do it for free in my opinion.

I have a 1998 ford expedition with 4wd and it pulls to the right. I had the tires rotated and the wheels aligned twice. The problem remains.


You could be having uneven tires; front-brake dragging; broken or sagging springs. Have your front brakes checked.

gregg it is best to allow a vehicle some right hand lead due top crown of most roads. road crown is designed to slope right and factory vehicle alignment usually follows slope. if u fall asleep or lose steering control of vehicle road crown" right float" will lead to ditch instead of oncoming traffic. if this really bugs u ask alignment technician to make left wheel .2 degrees more positive camber then right wheel and request caster be set no greater then .3 degrees difference between the 2 wheels request printout to verify. this should remove lead considering there is no tire pull. general motors compensates for road crown using caster typically but i prefer camber compensation

Tire rotation warning


It has nothing to do with rotating your tires, on your LCD screen when you select maintenance, you can select at how many miles you want to be reminded when to change your oil and when to rotate your tires. Once your vehicle has reached so many miles it'll pop up to remind you as it's sposed to do. While at a stopped position go to that screen, scroll down with your little joystick type knob and when you've selected tire rotation, you click to reset the miles on it back to zero. When you do your oil change you do the same thing. Your screen doesn't know if you've changed your tires or not, only you can tell it that you have.
