What Brand tires? If they suffered a hard blow the belts may have shifted. Or lesser brands sometimes are never balanceable. Which brings me to the issue of balancing. Might be they threw a weight? So you either need two tires, and or wheel straightening. New tires will be balanced.
Fixing a wheel is a couple hundred $ affair, no biggie and not uncommon for old wheels. I'd think its the tires. Did you shift front to back to isolate the issue?
Primewell Valera Sport AS 225/50ZR16. Total sh*t tires, I am assuming. That means buying four new tires, not two more shitty ones. Question is, which tires should I go for? I'll have to look into that.
My Pentas are 16X8 in case you are wondering. There is a so called Wheel Doctor
in town people talk about so I should see him about fixing the bent Penta, get it done and then choose four new tires.
How can I be sure my wheels are a-okay and not the problem?
before you tear out the dash, you need that four letter word TEST. Get a mighty vac, and gain access to the solenoid distributor. You will need to pump up a vacuum to each pod and identify which one(s) are tengo unicorn. When I first had the "no center" vent issue, it was just the DS footwell pod that was TU. If one is broke the default flow is out the defrost - not the center. All of the pods can be replaced without dash removal and is incrementally easier on a Gen 1. If you do the dash, then change everything you can and do this once. (all pods, rebuild box and replace TEV, evap coil and the heater core).
lol, that is like reading Egyptian hieroglyphics! Tengo unicorn?
What I will need are in depth instructions with pictures to start reading and studying because I haven't a clue about this. Video would be fantastic, but if not available I'll read read if I can be pointed to the right place.
So... It was the aux fan, then?
Yes. The servos or switches or whatever they are called that operated the fan were bad. He also recharged the coolant.
Which wheel and tire have the problem ? The fronts ?
If they aren’t staggered size , simply rotating them to the rear should fix it
I thought so, but it just changed how the vibration felt.
