The first problem sounds like a defective ignition switch problem. The second definately sounds like frozen front left calliper. You can try removing the calliper and rebuilding it or just replace it.

07 Escape vibration that goes away when turning wheel to the right. vibration starts between 20-30 mph and will only subside if the wheel is turned to the right or the car is stopped. new tires, thought that was the problem, was informed the ball joint and control arm bushings were bad, so replaced the control arms on both front. If the slightest right steering wheel pressure is applied,( not even enough to change a lane) it will stop. Any help appreciated, thanks


After you have changed the control arms on the front suspension did you send it for steering geometry ( tracking )? If not,then the problem you have is your front steering alignment is out and that's why. ... 2007 Ford Escape

Hi, I have a 2001 Buick. We just replaced the front tires. Shortly after that we noticed the car vibrates at around 45 to MPH, after we get past this mph the vibration stops. It is not worse when we turn corners or change lanes. We just spent $2,000. on front end to correct the problem, we were told, but this has not helped. The mechanic double checked the front end and everything is tight. He also checked the tires, one was slightly off balance but not enough to cause problem, he still correcte

Grinding noise in the left front wheel while turning right - gets more noticeable the harder the turn is. Checked tire clearance - no problem, but it's not a rubbing noise but a grinding noise. No problem turning left. The car is a 1998 Cabrio, so a bit older. Have had the front wheel bearings repaired (packed? replaced?) once but several years ago. Sound like a bearings issue? Or could it be brakes?


Grinding on front wheel is caused by 2 things. \015\012a bad or loose wheel bearing,or worn out brakes, have them both checked \015\012You might also want to check the level of fluid in the power steering \015\012reservoir - low or lack of flui ... 1999 Volkswagen Cabrio

I have a 2002 jeep liberty that we recently had alot of work done. I had new tires put on the front and it started made a loud noise after a sharp turn.

Car tire I have a front tire that is flat and the bolts will not come off. did they put a L key with cars made in 1992? Also which way do you turn the bolts to come off to the front of car or to the back of the car? Will I need a new tire rim as I drove on flat a few blocks and also are 1992 rims aluminum or steel? what else damage could of occured with the wheel thing? Thankyou


Sounds like the lugnuts have rust on them inside. Or someone way over tightened them to begin with. The lugnuts come off counter clockwise. The rims on your 92 are aluminum. There is a possibility of the rim is damaged to the point of not working. bu ... 1992 Chevrolet Lumina

Wrrrrring Sound My 2001 Dakota (4wd) had gradually developed a wrrring sound in the front end. It reminds me of the sound that huge mudder tires make when put on a vehicle, but seems to be in the front and possible the left front end. It builds in intensity as speed is increased and vice-versa. I have noticed, however, that if you make a right turn it stops, but comes back as you straighten the wheels again. No change is observed with a left turn is made. I cannot see any obvious problem with th

About a month ago, we had very icy roads, and I lost control of my grand prix while turning left onto a side street. I slid at an angle, hit the curb with my right front tire, and stopped up on the sidewalk. Since the there is a rhythmic humming in the right front end. while going straight at higher speeds the rhythm is slower. When I turn the wheel at those same speeds, the rhythm of the hum is quicker. What do you think it is? There is no vibration or pull in the steering column.

When I make a left turn in my 2002 pontiac sunfire there is a sqeaking sound coming from the front driver side wheel. I think its the wheel cover being loose. I am tempted to take the wheel cover off and make some left turns to see if that is what it is. Also when I make slow stops the front wheels vibrate versus. If I come to a fast stop, it does not vibrate at all. When it rains outside or when the wheels are wet the front doesnt vibrate at all whether I stop suddenly or slow. I need help!!!!

1996 corolla wagon driver side front axle is loose at the inner end. can I drive it til replace this weekend? Boots not torn, no clicking. About quarter inch play in wheel. Some buzz/whine sound randomly that disappears when I turn wheel slightly. Car was damaged by storm downed large tree trunk impact at 30 degree angle to wheel and fender. Car and van parked next to it stopped tree.. Have replaced wheel and tire and ''repaired'' fender so can drive (crow bar). Other side axle tight..


Chances are that if an impact did enough damage to loosen an axle then there is probably some other damage as well. Have you tried pushing the axle back into the transmission? If it comes out it's going to do some real damage to the car. The trans ... 1996 Toyota Corolla

I have a 1993 Olds Cutlass Ciera S. A few weeks ago, the steering wheel became incredibly difficult to turn. I check the power steering fluid level and it was empty so I filled it. Now when I turn to the right it makes a whirring, whistling type noise and is difficult to turn, but only to the right. I recently replaced the front, passenger side tire and was told I need an alignment. Is there some other problem that I'm missing?


If it was empty, you must have a leak in the steering system. ... 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora

I have a 02 Avalanche. It seems the 4wd drive does not engage. I have checked the transfer case actuator and the front diif actuator. They are operating normally. I have raised the left side of the truck so the wheels will be free rolling when in neutral. Then I rotated the front tire to see if the drive shafts where turning normally. I then engaged the 4high which activated the actuators. The front and rear axles were locked together. This should should show that the transfer case is working an

I have a vibration in the front end (feels like left side) that happens when making left hand turns and only when accelerating. can't find the problem. i was told that it could possibly be the transmission going out. any ideas? i have already checked the wheel bearing, put new tires,rebalanced tires, had alignment done also.


If it is your transmission you should get a check engine light. You most likely have a motor or transmission mount going bad so when you torque up the driveline the engine/tranny do not stay on a even plane, it is twisting too much. This can also b ... 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue
