Check your Ball joints/tire rod ends, as well as your t joint (can't remember the name). also check the alignment and tires for wear patterns.as for the battery its grounding out somewhere.

Front end problems in stering had alined 4 times and stll drifts from side to side at 60 plus miles an hour and new tires where to look next??


Sway bar links, sway bar bushings, or the sway bar is broken. I would go back and retrieve my money. You would think with this problem(I'm sure you told them), they would have caught this. The first one probably aligned it, the others, just charged you. You have this in front and back. Drift is sway. I would have checked both.

98 toyota corolla rattling noise in the front end on bumps


The rattle (noticed at times under hard acceleration) is the cause of gas shock on the upper part of the engine loosing charge, in-turn causing the engine mounts extra stress and thus metal vibrating/rattling together.
The knocking (over bumps, etc. if you have noted that) is caused by worn bushings, most likely worn sway bar end links (you will see the links looking at the undercarriage, on both sides, they are a little steel "bars" with threaded ends on a 90 deg angle held by bushings e.g. example of front sway bar links ).
I noticed these noises coming on (at various times) at about ~140,000km or ~67,000mi and drove the car as it was until ~300,000km when i sold it (as is). Annoying noises.... yes... did I turn up the radio and carry on driving this car, not "fixing" anything (and I mean not a single $ spent on it aside from maintenance) and then sell the car... yes. The choice is yours.

Solid bar in front end, two bushings on either side of front tires is this the sway bar?


if you are talking about the sway bar end links. you can replace them yourself to save a few bucks. first Raise the front of the vehicle with a hydraulic jack. Place jack stands under the frame on each side of the vehicle. Lower the hydraulic jack so that the weight of the vehicle is supported by the jack stands and the front wheels are off the ground. locate the sway bar end links on either side of the front sway bar. Remove the bolts from each end of the sway bar end link. replace the bushings in the same order you take them off. you can go to any auto parts store and buy end links for your car.

What are swey bars on a ford focus


A sway bar is a suspension piece that keeps the left and right side of vehicle connected to help with turns. They are held together through sway bar links at each end, which are fairly common to break or rattle over bumps.

Battery wasnt holding a charge so i replaced the battery and the alternator and the battery still wont hold sa charge. if i turn on the headlights it drains quick.


well, it will with the headlights on..... do you mean it loses a charge if parked, or driving it, the battery goes dead? if parked over night and its dead, there is a draw somewhere, make sure theres no dome light or glove box light on, cell phone charger, ect. A shop will need to verify the battery and altenator are good before doing a "parasitic draw test".... the max it should draw is 250ma.

How to get the front drive shaft past the sway


it comes out without lowering the sway bar
you unbolt both ends of the shaft and pull the front part out past the front diff towards the front of the engine and the rear part of the shaft will just fall out if you cant figure it out
just remove the 4 15mm bolts that hold the sway bar to the frame and it will lower enough that will get it out no problem at all

Battery not holding a charge


Hi

Normally all circuits should be dead when you switch off the ignition.

Only usual live one, is the radiator electric fan.

You should hear this running after you switch off, for only a short while, if you listen you can eliminate this.

Perhaps glove box, or trunk lights are sticking on ? but normally you only get them if side lamps are on, but still worth checking !

You will have to try disconnecting the battery over a weekend, if it is flat on Monday, it must be the battery.

Good Luck

P.S. Don´t forget to give me a rating please !

John.
