Shakes or Wobbles problem
2001 Chevy Venture 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 320000 miles

Hello,
I own a Venture van as you know. The problem is that we get a great amount of shaking and wobbling when we turn to the left. Last week I went to town and while I was driving I could smell something that was burning. When I stopped I checked the oil and it was fine. But when I went to check the front right tire it was really hot.
My son works on vehicles and he took a look and noticed that a rubber sleeve coming from the tire and is connected to the front end was worn away. Could this be a major problem. Would I be better off looking for another car?
Sorry I dont have a picture but I was hoping to find one online so that I could ask the proper question or inform you as to the exact location.

This sleeve is like a rubber that covers the joints.

Do you
have the same problem?

320000 mi? Wow, It sound like your left cv joint bearings are gone! Due to worn cv boots wich is probably the rubber that u are talking about
not uncommon!
