After changing the brakes and rotors the front drivers side rotor and tire wobble. it seems the rotor hasnt locked into place. is there a keeper that holds it into place or am i missing another part? How do you get it to install properly? The tire will freeze in place after turning a few times and it is scoring the rotor.


On most vehicles the wheel holds the rotor in place on the hub. I highly recommend removing and re-installing the wheel. There is a recommended torque for the lug nuts - be certain to look this value up and then torque the wheels to the correct spe ... 1995 Toyota Paseo

There is a rubbing sound coming from the drivers side tire, and when the gas is pushed hard, a loud thump comes from the drivers side. The explorer is all-wheel drive. Underneath, the entire driver's side suspension is wet from fluid, especially near the front differential. In addition to this, the ball joints in the suspension are worn. There is no liquid on the passenger side front and i felt no problems coming from that side. What could this be?


The thump is from the worn ball joints. You will need to determine the type of fluid by getting some on your finger and smelling it to determine what it is. It could be power steering fluid (reddish brown) could be gear oil (greenish), brake fluid (c ... 1997 Ford Explorer AWD

Feels like my front drivers side tire is lose but I check all the lugg nuts and they are tight. I can drive straight and I get a loud sqweal(as if I'm taking a corner to sharp) from the passenger side front tire and I just blew the passenger side tire a couple of days go. I seem to fix this problem if I hit a pot hole hard but for some reason its happening more often here lately.


Sounds like you have either tie/thrust rod ends going bad, or ball joints. Your wheel bearings could be going bad as well. Any of these can cause this problem. To check the tie/thrust rod ends, turn the vehicle off, and have a friend turn the whee ... Cars & Trucks

My passenger side front wheel moves side to side about an inch or two when front end is lifted off ground.I noticed it while i was rotating my tires, i just happened to grab the wheel before i took it off. Theres tension on it but i can still move it side to side. It doesnt move top to bottom. Its not the wheel bearing. I keep all my ball joints greased. It looks like there is play where the steering stabilizer bolts on the passenger side. The drivers side front wheel is tight. Is this norm

Check if your shocks are leaking. Jack up the car and with the right wheel off the ground check it for play in the bearing if it is tight and not grinding it is good. I would try another alignment shop if you dont find anything. Oh by the way dont le ... 1994 GMC Suburban

My 2008 ultima tires will leak air to the extent they are almost completely flat. It started with the passenger side rear almost completely flat. I would fill with air and it will last for 2-5 days. Now the drivers side rear tire is going flat nightly and the passenger side rear is staying inflated. I have also had to add air to both front tires. ALL THIS IS BEING DONE WITH COLD TIRES.

I just changed the oil in my '95 Villager and when I went to back down the ramps I had the front tires on, I had issues engaging the wheels. Later, I went to go to the store to get milk in the middle of the night, and it doesn't seem to shift out of park, and while trying all the out, my passenger window won't roll-up. The driver side works fine, and I checked all the fuses in the driver-side panel, and all of the fuses in the (annoying) panel on the driver side, under the hood; nothing was amis
