Having problems with your 2004 Toyota Corolla ?

Toyota Corolla CE 2005. When I turn the wheel all the way to the left riding the car, there is noise like something is loose (CLACK!!!). Also the tires do not try to go back to the original position, forward, like it would do normally if I turn the wheel to the right. I repaired almost the whole front end but the "CLACK" still there.

Transmission suddenly stopped shifting. It works in 1-2nd &R. Was working fine then would not go forward and would stall the engine. It was like the wheels locked up going forward only, reverse was fine. I backed the car onto a hill and drifted down in nuetral. When I put it in gear the wheels started turning but won't shift past 2nd gear, and the check engine light came on immediately. Could this be the ground strap, wiring. What causes this?

It began when I made left hand turns, there would be a vibration in the truck, like the tire was rubbing in the wheel well. Two days later I made a left hand turn and a noise of metal on metal grinding started, while i was driving. Now it is a loud grinding noise whenever the truck is moving forward. What could this be and about how much do you think it would be to fix?

2003 Trailblazer, the front drivers side wheel locks up and won't turn more than half a turn forward then the same backward. Making a bad clunk noise if you try to force it by giving the truck more gas to move. IT IS NOT the wheel hub assembly, or the brakes.both have been checked, and if i try to turn the CV shaft with the wheel hub assembly off it's the same thing, can only turn it so far forward then so far backward. Can anyone please help with this. PS it was making a noise like bearings

I have a 1977 Ford f150 4x4 . I put in the 460 big block it originally had the 400 in it. The problem I have is the starter will not turn the engine over when its warm.

I have replaced, battery, battery cables, (both negative and positive) solenoid, and starter. Its starting to get annoying and I could use some help. It has done this with every engine I put in so far and I've had thre

I've had two separate issues where I couldn't get the car to start. The car wouldn't even turn over but the battery was live. I think I managed to lock the wheel in some way that caused this to happen. As in both cases I eventually got it to start. Anyone have a similar problem and should I have this looked at. Seemed like the brakes were locked in both instances when I pushed on the pedal it would be tougher than normal start. These instancses were spread out over about a 6 month span. Last tim

Won't start I had my oil pressure light come on and then the car sputtered and quit. I checked my dip stick and there was no oil. When I turned the key it would give a pitiful chugging like it was trying to turn over. I put in one quart of oil in and turned the key and it then would turn over like normal but wouldn't stay running. I put in 2 more quarts of oil (three total) and then when I turned the key nothing happened. The battery is working fine because I can turn it on and do everything els

I have a 2009 Hyundai sonata GL 2.2 L and I get this high pitched screeching sound (that sounds like it's coming from the rear end) that started happening when I would turn my wheel to the right.

I have a 2007 toyota camry altese with 244,000km, it rides nice but the steering wheel is centred to be straight ahead and it feels like you have to overcome a spring or force to turn the wheel, if you pull the wheel around about 1/4 turn and let it go it snaps back to the centre position like it has a spring and detent. I think its worse at low speed. Tyres are 32 psi and suspension looks and appears to work OK

Steering issue Hi, when I take a full turn at low speed, like in the parking lot, if I release my hands from the steering wheel my car will go in circles. The st. wheel is not even trying to return to center, it stays sticked to the full turn position. I have to pull it from that position and then it will slowly return to center. I had the 4 wheel alignment checked by volvo, also the limiters inside the steering rack were replaced, with no improvement. If I google for "steering rack limiters" I

When making sharp turns backing up or going forwards there is a problem with the front wheels dragging. It seems like the back wheels are pushing the fronts when it goes forward in sharp turns and when backing up it drags them and leaves rubber marks every time. The car was wreaked on the right side but was repaired and the Chevrolet dealer ship checked the aligment and said it was perfect. The car was wrecked when had 3,300 miles on it. It was not repaired until June of this year. The car only

Key no longer works in ignition. I stopped to gas up and the key I normally use would not open the gas cap door. I re-entered the car and the key would not turn the ignition. The key unlocks the steering column and the radio etc will work but not the ignition. Tried a spare key, which did open the gas cap door, but it too will not turn the ignition. I think a small piece of the original key broke off in the ignition, and is preventing the spare from working. I think that is why the original key
