I know this website www.reliable-store.com that i get manuals from, and they have all models online that solve all simple/technical problems like professionals

I also brought for my 1989 BMW, such old model, they had it and it was very good manual. Go ahead, I bet.

It's not recommended that you replace them yourself if you haven't at least watched someone else replace one before. Often they require use of a torch just to loosen them up, and it's nearly impossible to get the new tie rod ends where the old ones were just by eyeballing it. Even just driving it from your house to the mechanic afterwards could cause significant enough tire wear to throw off an alignment.

Loud creaking noise(s) from front wheels when braking.


Well if the brakes are good (I'm not convinced) I would look at some of the bushings associated with the front end (control arm, sway bar .etc)

A mechanic said our daughter's 2002 PT Cruiser, limited edition , has a sway bar that is too long. In the Chrysler PT Cruiser manual I cannot find the sway bar mentioned and I don't know where it is on...


I dont see how it could be too long, if its the one the car came with. The sway bar would not be in the owners manual. Its in front and it goes from left front wheel to right front wheel. it will have a connector link at each end to connect to the lower arm. Sometimes it called the Anti-Sway bar or Stabilizer bar.

Clunking noise when you let the cluch out with front tires on and off the ground.


without being there,i would say that its possibly the clutch friction plate springs that are weak,and as they have some "play"the clunk is when they take up the slack....nothing serious,and as long as its just a noise,leave it until you need to replace clutch assembly....

2002 chrysler mini van front end noisy .when you hit a bump.what


I had the same problem with my 2002 Town and Country Limited. I took it to the mechanic and had the sway bar links and ball joints replaced and still had the same clunking noise when going over bumps at low speeds. The van sounded great on the highway, but country roads were horrible. I was about to replace the struts and pay another 700 dollars when i read somewhere that the sway bar bushings could wear and cause the noise. I took it to the mechanic and he said absolutely not it would be a waste of money. Being the stubborn guy I am, I went to NAPA and bought the two bushings for 12 dollars and replaced them myself in an hour. I took the van for a test ride and the noise is completely gone. Please ignore your mechanic and replace the bushings ASAP! Pretty cheap try even if it doesn't work.

Whirring noise from the front of car as you drive.


I would first rule out the possibility of a "rough" tire making the noise. You can move the two front tires to the rear of the vehicle and see if that changes the noise any. If it does, you might have a worn tire that needs replacing or a tire that has worn unevenly and should be rotated and balanced more often....

Good luck..
