You may have buckled your wheel if its a spoked type ! If you have buy a spoke key and tighten the spokes opposite the buckle if the buckle goes over to the left stop wheel and tighten spoke that lie on the right of the rim fairly easy if your rim is not to badly damaged..... you will have to keep on tinkering to true the wheel also check your spoke are tight before starting as i have seen spokes just loosen for no reason.......hope this helps.

Tighten the two pinion gear bolts that are holding the rear wheel, if the wheel is wobbling, then that is the problem.

If this does not fix the problem, you will probably better buy a new wheel, or replace the whole pinion gear and axis assembly, better to replace the wheel.

Sounds to me like the bearing cone nuts are loose. Your local bike shop should be able to sell you a cone spanner, which is a very thin spanner that help you to adjust the 'cones' which are held within the frame on the axle.
I could fix it for you for free if you come to Alice less car!

Why is the rear wheel moving side to side on ladies venture crystal oversize mtb bicycle?

Sounds like a bent rim or it's out od square in the frame.
To check the "Out of Square" measure the distance from the rear axle to a point on the frame on each side of the bike. To check the rim for trueness; take the wheel off the bike mount it on a holder (or just hold it out at arms length with both hands and have someone spin the wheel; if it spins straight, the problem is being out of square on the bike, if it wobbles it's a bent rim.

On my motorized gas bicycle the rear wheel wobbles what is causing that and how do I fix it?

Not sure about the Ford Focus issue?? If your motorized bicycle has wire spokes, they should be adjustable. Just tightening the spokes will pull the rim to that side. The opposite when loosening them etc.
If your wheels are of the mag type like a car, then maybe a bike shop can straighten out the wobble without more damage.

I need to change the rear gear sprocket, but don't know what speed the mountain bike is. How can I tell what speed the bike is.

Count the cogs, duh. You're going to need some help even after you know if it's 6-, 7-, 8, 9- or 10-speed in the rear. Special tools and 'how-to' knowledge. Take it to a Bicycle Shop an experienced DIY cycling friend.

I bought a Huffy sea star 20 inch bicycle last year, the rear wheel keeps puncturing the inner tube, a spoke has come loose and the wheel wobbles. can't find a replacement wheel. Help!!!!!

Don't replace the wheel, get it fixed. The spoke can be tightened and the rim tensioned and trued. The rim strip probably needs to be looked at for exposing the spoke ends to the tube.

Where can i buy a rear wheel for this bicycle

Bike shop, eBay, Performance Bicycle catalog? Look for a 26-inch MTB wheel with a Shimano 7-speed cassette body on it. If that makes no sense, take it to a bike shop and get it right the first time. They'll also have the special tools to transfer your gears to the new wheel.

Wanna see what's involved?

When i push on the pedals the backwheel doesnt go around

You my friend have a stripped free wheel.  The only solution is to get a new free wheel or just go out and get a new rear wheel all together.
