Engine 5cyl turbo

Car's allways had minor issues such as windows popping off track etc, it has for the most part allways run decently other then rough cold start.

Today, it started a servere shake, and a pull to the right, whenever any sort of acceleration is attempted. If you take you foot off the gas it stops shaking but even a minor amount of power will start it.

It shakes the steering wheel itself, and you can feel it through your feet as well. Both the brake light and the system "replace you brakes" have also recently come on too, but will be taking a look at those tomorrow when the sun is up.

Any ideas or help would be appreciated. In a bad spot right now financially and I simply can not afford to be without wheels or looking at a 2k repair.

Thanks,

Add On.

Yanked the front wheels this morning and crawled under to take a look. The Only thing I noticed, was that both sets of rubber going into the wheels from the quarter shafts were split open.

Don't know if that's a good or a bad thing to be honest as they both look like they have been that way for some time and up until now (years) never had any issues.

The Passenger side though, has a lot of grease coming out of the inside, wheel direction. Brakes were a bit worn as were the rotors but it didn't look obscene.

There doesn't seem to be much if any play, in any of the mechanical joints. Though the quarter shafts themselves will move just slightly back and forth.

Another thing I noticed after taking it around the block is that a hard turn will elicit a gringing feel from what seems the drivers side of the car. The Car will also drive fine indefinitly if it never breaks 20, but after a bit of time at speeds over that, it will start to shake and wobble as per previous post.

Could really use some help. Not much mechanically except for basic change a hose change a tire or belt thing. Anything would be appreciated thanks.

Hi, I sounds like the front suspension is loose so have that checked, also the drive drive shafts need inspection because of the front boot failure. Either of theses problems ccan cause the front end wobble you speak of.
