      Replace the shock struts. The coil spings rarely fail unless the coils had a wreck ( car accident ). Hope this answers your question and be safe. HAPPY HOLIDAYS.

      tire shops always say you need struts. toyota struts last a long time and it would be a wast to replace them with inferior aftermarket products. poss. rubber exaust hanger broken . if it really concerns you consult with dealer, youare still pretty close to your warrenty and even if you have never visite your dealer they will be so happy for a new cust. they might goodwill a borderline warrenty repair,esp. if you start going to them. it dont cost nothing to call&ask Good Luck

      I had the same problem with my 2002 Avalon. I did some research and found this to pretty prevalent with Camrys and Avalons. I turned out to be bad strut mounts.

      Caution. Certain early 2000 model Avalon's have just had a recall on the streeing column bracket. My 2002 was recalled. Check your dealer.

      Rattling? because more often than not rattling is caused by loose exhaust components. You are sure its not a thump or a knock or whatever?

      quite often this is either the sway bar links or the strut tops worn out.

    Could a bad idle control arm cause a car to veer to the left? The dealership said it was properly aligned.
    Just replaced 4 new tires (Bridgestone Turanza EL400) and got an alignment and then found my car started veering to the left only slightly but enough to bother my left arm when I have to keep pulling it back. Someone told me it could be that the old tires were worn ...

      This may sound odd, but I had a similar problem with a 1997 Tacoma from the day I purchased it brand new. Except mine pulled to the right. Took it back several times to the dealer to check the front end alignment and wheel balance. Every checked out ok, but the problem persisted. As I was driving one day, the front hubcap came off. The problem was solved. The hubcap was throwing the balance off. Every sicne, it has driven straight and true.

    2007 Rav 4 needs new tie rod. What does this repair entail?
    Upon research the mechanic said that 2007 Toyota Rav 4 does not have just a tie rod part. Per Toyota you need to replace the rack with an estimated 18 1/2 hr repair plus the rack. This puts the estimate over 2500.00? Any thoughts ?

    How many parts is there to the front tie rod and should you replace both right and left at the same time
    • Batman
      11/13/2010 Batman
      Generally, because I haven't seen your car, generally tie rods are an easy fix. It is , however, very important to mark the threaded portion of the steering rack where the tie-rods are attached now so that when you put on the new ones your alignment won't suffer terribly. You may also want to invest in a pickle fork, or ball joint splitter to seperate the knuckle from the spindle. Yes, it's a good idea to do both at the same time.

    Why does my car hum at higher speeds?
    There is this loud humming noise coming from my tires, but only when I do 50mph or higher. I doesn't do it all the time. I had the tires rotated, balance and aligned and the humming still continues. Just had new tires put on almost a week ago and the humming still ...

      I suspect the tire pressure is low. Check the tires of what proper air pressure must be put on. This always happens during 40-50mph driving or higher speed.

      This is a tip.
      Rotate the crankshaft pulley and the camshaft sprocket to align with their marks, verify the cylinder piston # 1 is at TOP DEAD CENTER prior to remove the timing belt.
      Replace the old timing belt as well. Make a sketching " how the timing belt was routed into the sprockets".Tag any hoses prior to disconnect, in order to avoid the confusion when you put it back.
      Hope this helps and be safe.

      Sorry, i don't have the formula, but the tire size.The P-metric tire is the tire identification system using metric values and international standards. Per example P 155/80 R-13
      P indicates passenger car tire.
      155, gives section width in millimeters.
      80, is the height-to-width ratio.
      R, indicates radial (B means bias belted, D means bias ply)
      13, shows the rim diameter in inches.
