Grand Pixs are known for the engine cradle rail or cradle mounting bolt holes to rust out. If that's the case with your vehicle, it is very dangerous! Your steering linkage can disconnect resulting in a complete loss of control of your vehicle. Good luck! Hope this helps!

When Im driving my 2001 Cadillac deville on the highway at 55mph and up, if the hwy starts to curve to the left the car starts shaking. But once the hwy straightens back up, the shaking stops. Why is that?


Could be a bad wheel bearing. This is very dangerous, be sure and get it checked out asap. If the wheel comes off you're going to have a very bad day!

2002 grand prix front tires are wearing out on the inside tread ?


It could be either the ball joints or the tie rod ends are worn out. With it being a front wheel drive car also check your drive axles. Make sure that the axle boots are not torn or cracked which if they are cracked or torn replace them and repack the cv joints.

Why does my rear wheel drive s15 have vibiration in front drivers side while driving on highway?


Have tire balance checked, and also have the steering and suspension components(tie rods, ball joints) checked. Could also be a shifted belt in the tire, this will show up during tire balancing.

Tie rods on front wheels need replacing, also need 2 new front tires. Can I have the front tires installed and then put the new tie rods on at home?


Depends on how far your drive is to home, if the tie rods are that bad to make the tires wear then i would only drive it a short distance. Tie rods control inward and outward positions of tire if looking at front of vehicle called (Toe) . When driving strat and a tie rod is damaged or defective and tires ares point in or out all your doing is dragging the tire down the road.

Audi shakes on highway at 45mph and then stop after 10 min.


I would suspect several things

First have the tires spin balanced - my guess is you have a seperated tire
You could have a brake hanging up on that wheel
Or not making proper contact - thus causing the rust or more correctly not removing the rust
It may also be a wheel bearing

Steering wheel shimmy at highway speeds


This sounds like tie rod ends are going out. Before you remove the old ones, mark on the threads where it currently is seated or you will throw it out of alingment when you put new ones on. You may need to borrow or buy the tool for poping out the tie rod end. They aren't a big deal to change if you have some basic tools and sometimes you don't need the wedge tool either. Once you get the old one out, try moving it around. If it is real loose and moves easily, thats your problem. But the swaying you are describing sound like this is the problem. Could be you steering control arms as well but because the inside of the tires are worn I doubt it.

It is hard to say since we can't see it, if the front end was checked and I assume the tires are balanced so you could have bad struts or tie rod end, defective rack and pinon and or the bolts coming loose on the rack and pinion. Also inner tie rod ends, so you need to take it to a front end shop and have them check the alignment and the parts I just suggested.

Front end problems


You seem to have more than one problem, first of all the balding tire you have a negative camber problem that can be adjusted by getting a wheel alignment done. The shaking problem while applying brake could mean that you have bad/warped front rotors. It can also mean bad Tie rods. Lastly it can mean that the front tires needs to be high speed balanced. Good Luck
