Please, dont judge. Im a beginnerðŸ˜‚ and when I say beginner, I mean Im in a high school auto class and only know how to change oil, rotate tires and know that blinker fluid is a hoax. But the point is, I love what I can do so far. Anyways, I just bought my first car a mitsubishi, Lancer, hatchback, 2006. I noticed that it had a wobble when I reach 100. Its more prominent when I turn left and I have a slight pull to the left to. I weighted my tires. There all good, but I still have a wobble. Im thinking its a left bearing or break rub. But the sales guy says the breaks where just done. Please, it may be a dumb question. But I would to learn more and how to diagnose a car. So questions and suggestions would be awesome. Thank you!!!!!
Kenn Lukes: Dont go 100……
Elora Middleton: 100kmðŸ˜‚, sorry
Audrius GriÅ¡keviÄius: Here is a cool diagnostic write up: Ifitjams.com 0Hope it will help you and give info you didnt know :))
Diagnosing rack and pinion steering problems – Troubleshooting vibrations,â€¦
Elora Middleton: Thank you, much appreciated
Jessica Clark: Tie rod?
Elora Middleton: Ill check it out. Thanks
Mandi Ess: Could be steering rack, tie rod, tail shaft, could need an alignment ect ect, hard to know without feeling it lol
Mandi Ess: This group is mostly US Im guessing haha
Elora Middleton: Im Canadian eh
Mandi Ess: Im Australian haha, it gets a little confusing at times with vehicle names & miles/kilometres ect ðŸ˜‚
Kevin Slagle: You know what a dumb question is? The one you didnt ask and wish you had.
Elora Middleton: Exactly why Im askingðŸ˜‚
Joshua Paul: It may smooth out at 120.. lol seriously though Google can help a lot. Check all your joints bushings tie rods and stuff. Prop front end up and try to see if you can wiggle anything. Thats where Id start.
Ben Otto: Have you checked the tire for balance? The weights can come off at any time and is the usual cause of vibration in the wheels
Josh Marxen: On a related note, tires have speed ratings and its possible that they are simply not able to handle 100mph. If youve ever seen a still shot from a dyno the rubber actually looks like an octogon a g- force pulls it outward.
Elora Middleton: Thats cool, I was only going 100km but still cool. ThxðŸ˜Š
Kevin Slagle: She meant kilometers , so whatever that is 60ish I guess
Josh Marxen: Sorry assumed race car when I seen 100. Not that I ever tested top speed when building cars back in my school days ðŸ˜‰
Elora Middleton: I do wanna see how fast I can go in er. But I think I should wait till I get my full licence. ðŸ˜‚ I dont think my mom would like to be in the passenger seatðŸ˜‚
Tiffanie Sanders: Pretty positive its a tie rod had the same issue with one of my cars.
