Ive checked all the wiring and nothing is shorting out. is this a common problem? and could it be the lead to the spark plug somehow shorting through a radiator hose that it is touching?I want to keep an eye on this thread.... Same thing happened on my 2002 XC300 a few years ago. I never found any specific cause and the problem seems to have gone away. Funny the two specific times it happened I happened to be almost directly underneath High Voltage power transmission lines. Check your kill switch for shorts. If it is only a single wire unit. That might be the path to your shocking adventures. I have sinced changed my XC into an EC with a new wiring harness and switch gear. So that may be why my problem is gone.,,,

When driving around at any speed on highway my car feels like gliding It feels like I'm going to lose control and sometimes when I brake coming down hill the front end shakes violently. then will stop


This is an indication of a strut issue. The shocks dampen the spring in the strut assembly. IF you have loose fastening components or bushings or a bad shock in the strut you can get a violent shudder when you apply brakes on a down hill direction.

My van shimies left and right badly....and it pulls to the left....it does it more when going straight and not so much when going around curves


check the vans rear shock absorbers if they are faulty the car can exhibit this type of behaviour and braking will be less efficient. Also tyre wear will be affected to.
I am not a shock absorber expert but had recently my four shock absorbers replaced as the fluid had ruptured in the front shockers and the rear mounts for the rear shockers were corroded and unsafe. (shock absorber expert at repair place mentioned the symptoms you are describing as a rear shock problem or the rear leaf springs are faulty)

Hi there, I have a 2001 EC200 GG and I'm finding the front brake weak and spongey. Is it generally the stock brake line or the pads that are the main problem, or something else? Cheers,


Hi, spongy brakes is usually from air in the system, only in really old bikes and poor quality brake lines will cause spongy breaks where the brake lines expand instead of full pressure being applied to the brake pads, very rarely will the brake pads cause spongy brakes (unless over heated), once you get rid of the sponginess you will get strong braking. Bleed your front brake system taking care not to let the master cylinder run out of fluid, this is the easiest and cheapest start, once all the air is out then you can work your way through, another good way of testing your braking system, but you need to be very careful doing this and make sure your brake lines are not hard or brittle, you can squeeze the brake line at certain spots (using a pair of brake line pliers), eg. squeeze after the master cylinder. if brakes spongy than your master cylinder needs attention, if brakes hard than your problem is further down the line, calipers etc. Hope this helps.

If you have the jack in the correct location have you attempted to turn the front wheels to slightly adjust the angle of the hub relative to the shock and stabilizer bar?

Breaking problem in rain...car pulls to the right . Had it in to dealer says cannot duplicte the problem...pulls so bad it's scary


Usually if a car pulls to one side, the brakes are experiencing bind up. Have a shop check your brake hoses on the front. A weak hose can cause the car to pull. If you havent already, consider having the front brakes serviced, new pads and turn the rotors, Apx $100 for most, heavy duty applications could run $200. If your air ride system is defective this could play in also. Strutmasters sells a replacement coil-over shock replacement for the air-ride systems and at $500 they are an excellent alternative to costly air-ride repairs...very expensive. The Strutmasters system is all 4 shocks, coils and hardware to install.

I have a chevy silverado 1500 Ls.Im experiencing a swaying sensation in the front end. In a curve the front end will lean excessively to one side. This vehicle will not hold an alignment Everyone says...


Just a few out of the box ideas. Check body and cab mounts, are they all tight? Sway bar mounts front and rear, are they ok? Check frame mounting points for suspension parts are all bolts and rivets tight and not showing signs of shifting? Possible internal shock failure not seen from outside. remove shocks and verify they are sound and working these assist the anti roll bars., Just Brakes! HA HA... nuff said there. You are not carrying anything in the bed that can contribute to the rolling? i.e. large fuel/water tank? Pulling a trailer? Hope this helps Good Luck!
