Hey Scotty, how’s it going? My emails keep drowning in your inbox, meaning you don’t see them in your live show, so I’ve had to come here.

I’ve got a Chevy Trailblazer 05 w/ 365,000km on it, and I recently came across a problem (today, actually!) with the steering. When I steer left, it’s smooth. When I steer right, there’s like a rattling sound that’s comes from somewhere inside the front left tire area, and I don’t know what this means. Sounds like something is hitting a tin can with a stick. I recently had my front right tie rod changed, but I haven’t changed the front left tie rod. The steering doesn’t turn on its own when I hit brake (braking to the side), brake fluid is good, power steering fluid & hoses are still good.
Do you have any idea as to what it could be? It’s making me nervous of a possibility of the tire rolling off while I drive.

Also, my transmission has recently been doing unintended acceleration when I clock a steady speed between 60-100km/h. My fluid is still red, so I don’t believe it’s the fluid. Any ideas?

Thanks again, Scotty! :)

d jack it up and pull on the noisy wheel to check ball joints, tie rods, and A frame bushing wear. Those have horrid trannys, amazed yours is still going. Odds are it's on the way out now
