Shakes or Wobbles problem
1996 Geo Prizm 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 148000 miles
only shakes in left turns and only if I am accelerating if I take my foot off the gas and coast the turn there is no shake
(feels like it wants to go but somethings stopping it and its more like short jerks every half second or so than a shake )
i have changed the control arm as the rear bushing was bad but this didnt resolve the problem.
im leaning toward cv joint or trans axle as it only happens when im accelerating
i would imagine if it was the tie rod id feel something in the steering or it would happen whether im accelerating or not
and the same for ball joint (which I didnt change with the control arm )
my real question is how could I rule out cv joint or if I inspected it what should I be looking for
if it turns out not to be the cv joint id take it in for the transaxle to be looked at.
i have done most of what you suggested except checking the fluid and seals everything else checks out tho (this is why its driving me nuts lol)
thanks for the assist
have the same problem?
