"Pulls to one side" sounds a lot like a frozen front brake caliper. While you could get away with replacing only the caliper on the side of the truck that it pulls to, for a time -- for example, if the truck pulls to the left, the caliper on the left will be the frozen one -- you are better off replacing both calipers because the other one will likely eventually go out, too.

05 gx470 check engine and vsc trac lights are on, wont accelerate past 35

i had an issue with a nissan xterra and it turned out to be a Cam position sensor. Who would have thought? Engine light would be my primary concern, local auto parts store (advance or autozone) can pull the service engine code.

Im trying to take out the c v axle that i just installed on my 1989 camry

I also think that the c clip is the answer not sure that position of it is as important as the outward pressure(evenly on each side of the shaft,or a puller from the end)

What will cause a 2001 mercury cougar to pull hard to the left? We already changed lower ball joints, caliper, bearing hub assembly, and outer tie rods.What's your problem?

Could be air in system and right side not applying brakes. Also the internal rubber in brake line where solid metal line attaches to can deteriorate and form a blockage for brake fluid to not reach caliper on right side.

Steering pulls to left when accelerating when gets to required speed then pulls to the right

Your car needs a front wheel alighnment.When it pulls under acceleration and then goes the other way,get an alighnment.Torque pulls the wheels one way and then the travelling pulls it the other.Hope this helps

Under acceleration the car pulls to the left but is fine under steady speed driving and tracks straight. Tire inflation is normal.

A front wheel drive car pulls with the same wheel it steers with. So if any part of the suspension,or steering linkage is warn , torque from acceleration will pull the drive wheel to the side. After 15 years on the road : my guess is warn-out tie-rod-ends. See a mechanic.It won't be cheap, but a hole-lot easyier !

Main belt vibretes at 40mph and it rips off.

Obviously have to take a close look at pulley conditions & alignment, as well as tensioner. While the belt is off, check each pulley by trying to spin it for excessive resistance, and or movement, side to side, up & down, feel for grinding like indication bad/dry bearing. Try applying a little force in direction that belt would when it's on, as you rotate pulley, as it may only show or feel it when force applied. Remember, when you accelerate, crankshaft pulls harder on that belt & if tensioner isn't keeping proper tension on at all times due to partially seized or weak, it will allow belt to loosen up & bounce on opposite side from pulling.
