View Full Version : fd pulls to right during acceleration
04-27-2010, 09:43 AM
we finally got the fd titled and insured again. right now, she's sporting 7600 real miles. william & i drove it some & it still runs/shifts great, but when you accelerate heavily, it pulls to the right pretty hard.
wonder if storage/sitting for almost a year could've caused something in the rear end to lock/seize... or if storing it on the frame lift for a couple months(no pressure on wheels/suspension) could've caused a problem with it.
any input off the top of your minds?
thanks in advance!

Check tire pressure, likely the cause.

I would say David nailed it check the rear tire pressures its prob the right rear low

thanks, appreciate the input. i just checked & tire pressure is right on all around.. soon as the weather clears back up we'll do some more driving around and hopefully it'll subside or hopefully it was a case of over active imagination.. if not we'll take a look underneath.
let you know.

Check you diff bushings. Sounds just like a car we just put a motor in that has the same characteristics.

thanks sBrian2.. I just drove it to the coffee shop by myself and noticed it when i gouged it in a short straight away. definitely pulled to the right when i was pushing it hard. when I accelorated normally, I couldn't feel any pulling.
hopefully he'll be able to finish the job that's in the way & get her on the lift today so we can figure it out. I love this car & I really want him to finally enjoy driving the FD. Really enjoyed my little ride in her this morning too, but he doesn't feel comfortable turning me loose in his baby to go any further than down the rode and back when there's potential problems. :)
