Q: Tie rod issues

asked by on

I don't know what is wrong with my car. Someone told me it was the tie rod.

If you are experiencing poor handling on turns, shaking on straight aways, or pulling one way or another, the problem is with the steering system. This could include, but is not limited to, the tie rods. If you would like to have this examined by a trained professional, YourMechanic can come to your home or office to determine what fixes should be made for your car.
