Question about 2001 Toyota Tundra

1 Answer

2001 Rwd Toyota Tundra 3.4L. Front passenger tire wears heavy on outside, looks cockeyed, but has no excessive movement when truck is lifted. A few days ago that wheels brakes locked up when slowing to a stop, and it was acting up for about only an hour. Hasnt done it before or after that instance. Dont know.. maybe the calliper is bad? Or mayber something is messing with the abs sensor? Mud or debris possibly? Where is this sensor located if it even might be the problem.. Replacing front brakes today because that wheel wears heavy on the outside brake pad too. Well see what I see, wish me luck or suggestions thanks.

What kind of adjustments can be made to minimize outside edge tire wear on my 2001 Toyota Highlander V6 AWD?

If you are confident the wheel alignment is correct (first option) it may have excessive positive camber (lean in or out of the front wheel). This is often adjusted at the top of the strut tower (if fitted). A good front end mechanic would fix this problem in his sleep, you would not have to prompt him.

My 99 F150 RWD front end feels loose

Raise your front end off the ground and put up on jack stands for safety. With tire off the ground grad it with one hand at the 12 O'clock position and the other at the 6 O'clock position and pull it in and out and see if it moves and seems loose. Do this again at the 3 O'clock and 9 O'clock positions and see if it moves or seems loose. It should be firm with NO looseness. If it is not firm, this could be a sign of a loose or bad wheel bearing. Take off tire and remove the cap on the wheel hub and see if the bearing nut has come loose. On a truck of this vintage there should be a cotter pin going through a groove in the nut that goes through the end of the axel threads.

While under there check out the end of the tie rods for looseness. There may be rubber bushings that are worn out and need replacing. If they are cracked and dried out, these should be visable. To test the ball joints, use a prybar and insert it in or around the ball joint area and lift, pry or push to see if the ball joint is loose, it should have NO movement. Also bouncing could be a sign that the shock absorbers are worn and need replacing. If there are wet areas where the hydraulic fluid in the shock is leaking , it should, be replaced.

Will bad front ball joints cause excess wear and tear on my front tires?

I vote yes. Any worn component of the front end be it ball joints,tie rods,wheel bearings,even tire balance will adversely affect tire wear.

Shakes on the front right side at 50 miles especially if i hit the gas

Vibration, usually upon acceleration? Sounds like the passenger side axle may be (possibly)wearing as the clearances inside the axle wear out, creating excessive movement when under a load (acceleration). Usually a rapid vibration that increases as you speed up.

The left (drivers) side cylinder head is numbered from front (radiator)

The right (passenger) side cylinder head is numbered from front

per 2001 Toyota repair manual page EM-103 and 105. The numbers are not on the engine, from what I can see, but the manual is very specific on this info.

Front end alinement plus toe and camber has been checked car tracks fine BUT outside edge of tires are wearing

outside edge will wear on passenger side --- power steering causes this ,but if both tyres are wearing then have it tracked with a good old fashioned type tracking bar ,these laser things are only as good as the operator ,if it shows up as parallel then you could have worn bushes on the track control arm,is this vehicle subject to a annual vehicle mechanical inspection like in europe or just an emmisions test american style

I have a 1987 toyota camry, at times the steering

check the motor mounts/transmission mounts for excessive wear. Open the hood and with the emergency brake on and the rear wheels blocked with bricks (front and back of the rear tires) have a friend stand to the side and a few feet back of the engine. The other person gets in the car, starts it and with your left foot applied constantly to the brake pedal, use the right foot to rev the motor up and down in drive, then in reverse. You are looking for the engine to show movement front to back or side to side excessively. The engine will stay virtually still during this test if the mounts are good but it sounds like on ore more may be bad.

I have uneven wear on my 2006 toyota tundra tires, the right tires are worn much more on the outer edge than the left. any thoughts?

You have a front suspension part that is worn and/or need the front end aligned. If problem is in the rear you may need a four wheel alignment. If it was low air pressure it would wear the inside and outside edges of the tires.
