Car is weaving left to right after being side swiped there was paint on the left rear hubcap so that wheel was hit would this be an alignment issue?
Side to side movement of front wheels on my 96 F350 means it has loose tie rod ends right-- Would this also cause there to be a wobbling feeling in the steering wheel when driving on un-even surfaces?
Loose or worn tie rod ends on the 96 F350 can cause this problem. There could be other front end components wearing as well, check the entire front end system for problems.
Acually there is no way to tell because unless you can tell both the colour and the kind of car then it is impossible because there is bound to be more than one car the same.
the guy should not hit the 2 cars on the right and he should not go near them
Possible - yes. Very few things of a mechanical nature like that are actually impossible. But it's not possible to do it cheaply or easily, it'll require a fairly thorough, difficult and expensive rebuild of the car. You can do almost anything if enough money is at your disposal. Changing the dri...
What makes car feel floaty at high speeds wheel floats left to right especially after hitting a bump?
check suspension parts like tie rods, sway bar end links and struts

How do you fix your can when your car's passenger side front wheel hit the curve so that tire of that wheel is touching body of car?
Hitting a curb hard enough to make the tire touch the body will require a qualified repair shop. You can bank on more then one thing being broke and or at least bent and will need to be replaced. This happened to me and it required a new control arm. 300 dollars parts and labor.

Make sure that the master cylinder is full. Loosen the rear line at the cylinder and make sure that the fluid has pressure and comes out at the loose line. If fluid flows, then check the lines fro a kink and bleed them again as there might still be air in the system.
You were involved in an accident where a car was stopped to turn right the second car was passing on the shoulder and you hit this car who is to blame?
Assuming you are in the car that stopped at the light and you hit the car that was passing, It is obvious the car passing illegally on the right gets the ticket and the blame and had better have insurance.
Yes, it is legal to drive a vehicle with the steering wheel on the right in the United States.Since most right-hand-drive vehicles are manufactured for non-United States markets, they may not meet those specifications and will require significant modification.

Why is the left driver side wheel making a squeeking noise when you trun the wheel to the left on your 2002 mercury sable?
The first thing I would suspect is a wheel that is way out of alignment. Have it checked. Depending on what you mean by squeeking, it might also be a bad CV (continuous velocity) joint. This is part of the 1/2 axel between the transmission and the wheel. The last time I paid someone to replace on...

Some mechanics said that the chain on a 2001 Toyota Corolla w110K miles would probably outlast the car so does this mean you don't have to change it?
The chain normally does not need replacing. However, if you begin to hear it make a noise or the car all of a sudden starts to run poorly, have the chain looked at. They do wear, and will eventually need replacing. They can last from 150 to 200,000 miles.

An F1 car participates in a 15-lap race At the end of the race the two wheels on one if its side cover 1 mile less than the two wheels on the other side How is this possible?
Although F1 cars turn both left and right during the race, there will generally be more turns in one direction than the other since the course must loop around to meet the location of the start. This means that a lap, although not a true oval or circle, can be looked at as a mutated version of th...

Lincoln Mark viii you were told that the struts off of a Taurus would bolt right on in place of the air bags is this true?
