You cannot its as simple as that ,this vehicle needs to be inspected by a qualified mechanic who will inspect the front end of the vehicle to ensure that the track control arms and associated ancilleries are correct and not damaged then retrack the vehicle ,their is a underlying fault here that their is a potential dangerous fault with this vehicle which is causing this problem and you could kill a pedestrian or another driver of another vehicle with this death trap that your driving

    good glad to hear it ,be surprissed how many people do and this is why i sounded harsh ,having suffered being put in a coma whilst walking along the pavement in 1991 anyway most likely cause is a damaged tie rod end where someone has tow started a vehicle and placed the rope around the suspension and pulled the steering arm in towards the suspension and bent it ,next main fault that appears is the sheared bolt on the lower track control arm or the chassis has corroded and come apart ,hence which is why i said to ask a local mechanic to have a look unless your competent enough to tackle this sort of work yourself ,Their is often a lot of questions like this on this site and i do feel that this is because their is no annual vehicle mechanical inspection like their is in europe ,just this emmisions test where they plug into the OBDII .

    I agree, there are enough people out there that don't use the smallest amount of common sense. Thanks for the input, I'm taking it in to be checked and repaired and hopefuly I will be good to go

    a picture is worth a thousand words as the saying goes and if i had my head behind the wheel for a few seconds i could could no doubt tell you exactly whats wrong but from afar ,anyway please keep me posted as to what the local man finds and then i can say if this is about right or what as their are a lot of unscrupulous types in the motor trade and the ones to watch for are the ones with a posh accent who have a young wife , kids in private school and drive a big rangerover .You see in the UK the fancy accent is the key as people think your clever when you talk slow and go um a lot in the middle of talking ,This is because they are so inbred their thick ,anyway dont start me off about the __UK thats why i live in spain

What does it mean when your front wheels are not parallel? Driver side points straight forward and the front left points a little to the right.


It means that your front end is out of alignment. The front wheels should be adjusted so that both point slightly inwards at the front of the car when the steering wheel is straight. This is referred to as "toe-in." The reason why cars and trucks are aligned with toe-in is because the wheels go to a straight position when traveling on a highway due to the road resistance pushing the tires back. What you have is a "toe-out" condition which will cause the tires to wear faster at the side adjacent to the back of the wheels. Have your car aligned to avoid such uneven wear.

When front end is jacked up should both wheels turn at the same speed


Yes that is normal for a front wheel drive vehicle. The power is applied to the wheel on the passenger side only until a given amount of wheel speed is obtained then the drivers side will spin at the same rate. Although if you raise the front of the vehicle and spin the tires by hand in neutral you should feel equal resistance. If the driver side wheel has excessive resistance to turning the wheel bearing may be to tight..

Brakes are wearing uneven. driver side brakes are engaging but passenger side is not


Either the caliper is bad or there is air in the line.I would pull the wheel off and have someone pump the breaks and see if the breaks try to move then try bleeding them out before I spent the money on a new caliper.

I have a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am and it makes a loud noise


Bad front wheel bearing on the drivers side. When you turn left it shifts more of the vehicles weight to the passenger side and takes the pressure off of the drivers side. Not uncommon but will need attention soon. Hope this helps

when its cold fluid will be lower than when its hot. sounds like you may have a suspension component broken, and for sure need alignment for those wheels
