Question about Ford Mustang

2 Answers

I have a 94 mustang gt, just recently did an oil change, tire rotation & valance, the mec. mentioned he had to replace the inner tie rods for valance purposes, had all spark plugs & and wires replaced, fuel filter replaced, clutch replaced, flywheel rectified,etc. the problem i am having is that when the car is in idle, if you stay still inside you will notice that the car moves side to side, it also has lots of vibrations on pedals and shift stick while idleling, also when you are accelerating the pedals will vibrate more, and the steering wheel will vibrate aswell, when driving at speeds of 45-70mph steering wheel and pedals once more start vibrating, and you hear like my tires are rubing on something, also when slowing down to a stop you will hear a on and off humming sound, the faster i stop the faster the sound is, and the car starts to vibrate on pedals real hard, and my steering will start to go rigth or left, i have been trying to fix this problem for quite a while now, i just work alot and could use some helpfull knowledge, cant think of anything besides my calipers, or engine mounts being bad.

If he replaced the inner tierods, the car needed to be realigned, also sound like he has the igntion wires crossed. I've never heard of having the " flywheel rectified ", unless you mean resurfaced. You should re-visit this shop and have a talk with the manager [ if there's one ], or the shop owner, the work performed is questionable at best. If you get no satisfaction there you should contact the consumer's protection agency in your area to get help.
I would find another shop in the future.

Need to replace inner tie rod on a 1998 ford ranger two wheel drive , driver side . engine size is 2.5. do i have to take outer tie rod off as well?


webbraymond2, Yes, you have to remove the outer tie to access the inner tie rod. When you do this, count the rotations of the tie rod as this will have to be replaced when the new inner tie rod is installed. Counting the rotations will allow you to put the outer tie rod close to where it was when you started the job. You are changing the toe setting when you have to replace either the inner or outer tie rod. You need to access and remove the jamb nut and boot before you can access the inner tie rod and this is why the outer needs to be removed first. A wheel alignment is advised after you finish the job. Good luck with this.

Can i replace a tie rod {inner} on a 94 ford mustang , drivers side without taking off rack and pinion. I need to get a roll pin off the inner tie rod and thats the problem it looks pressed in not set...


Real simple, assuming you know how to take the outer tie rods off. You have to take the clip that holds the plastic boot on off, then slide back the plastic boot, and you'll be able to unscrew the whole inner tie rod assembly. The hardest part of the whole process is installing the new ones to the exact settings of the old ones

Any info on tie rods


You have left and right inner tie rods and outer tie rods on your car.
You also have lower ball joints which can wear loose too....not to mention the left and right struts and upper strut bearings.

A cheap (China) tie rod may last only a year.(plastic inner wear points)
A good quality tie rod may last 10.(nylon and/or metal wear points)

You have to have a special tool like this

Disconnect the outer tie rod and remove,then remove boot,then use special tool to remove inner tie rod. You will then have to have it aligned. You can use a tape measure to get it close enough to drive,just mark one of the grooves in the tire so you are measuring the exact same points,measure from tire to tire in the front of front tires then take a measurement at the rear of front tires and adjust the outer tire rods until the measurements are pretty close to equal.

94 ford escort..help on auto repair


I can walk you through it, be sure it is your outer tie rod that is bad the inner tie rods go bad also. It's actually quite simple to replace. Jack up and secure car with safety stands, remove your tire. Remove cotter pin and the nut holding in onto your steering knuckle, Loosen lock nut on the inner tie rod shaft. Either rent or buy you a tie rod removal tool they are cheap, but autozone and many other stores have a tool loner service that is free. Remove the tie rod from the knuckle and hold inner shaft and rotate the outer rod end till it comes off. When you go back with the new one measure across the front ties on the front and on the rear side about the same place. Screw the new tie rod on till the fron and the back of the tires measure the same distance, that is zero toe. Most fwd cars drive great right there. Be sure you tighten everything properly and reinstall the cotter pin If this helps please vote fixya!
