WHEN TURNING THE STEERING WHEEL IT VIRBRATES


If you are turning the steering wheel all the way to the "lock" position, you are probably putting too much pressure on your power steering pump and you are most likely getting som drive-belt slippage.

Best guess sight unseen is feathered tires from poor alignment. Feel the inside edges of the tires by rubbing your hand in both directions. If it feel "choppy" it is you tires causing the noise. Try rotating the tires from front to back to see if the noise changes or goes away. If it does, replace the front tires and have the car aligned.

Feels like my front drivers side tire is lose but I check all the lugg nuts and they are tight. I can drive straight and I get a loud sqweal(as if I'm taking a corner to sharp) from the passenger side...


sounds like you have either tie/thrust rod ends going bad, or ball joints. Your wheel bearings could be going bad as well. Any of these can cause this problem. To check the tie/thrust rod ends, turn the vehicle off, and have a friend turn the wheel back and forth while you look at the steering linkages. If you see anything moving more than the part that it's attached to, you have found something that needs replacing right away. For Ball joints, put a jack on the a-arm right beside the wheel. Jack it up, and watch the tire as it starts to come off the ground. If it slides out when it just gets off the ground, you have bad ball joints on that side. Wheel/hub bearings can be trickier, unless they're REALLY worn. Jack the car up so that it's clear of the ground, and see if you can make the wheel wobble by moving it with your hands. You may also notice a grinding or whining sound coming from the affected side. You'll especially notice it if you drive with your window down, as you're passing a building or other hard object, as the sound reflects back at you. Hope this helped you find your problem.

The sedons sat for two weeks while I was away. On


Replace the intermediate shaft. See TSB (KT2008101402). It connects the steering to the rack and the u-joint binds.
