Is it expensive to fix tie rods and to get a car alignment for a 1999 ford escort ZX2?
it all depends on the mechanic you go to. an alignment could cost anywhere from 60-100 dollars..where as if your fixing both outter tie rods on your car it could cost somwhere in between 80 and 200 dollars depending on part price and labor cost.
Your 1999 Ford Escort ZX2 has a slight pull to the right you thought it was the alignment but it was not The mechanic who did the alignment stated that he did not know why it was doing that?
What is the problem if a '90 Ford Escort makes a clicking noise when you turn the wheel and a grinding noise when you accelerate?
For sure your cv joint is bad, and that can get expensive, my subaru has that problem right now, was quoted at least $500 to fix because it messes with the alignment and tire wear and other wear. expensive. I now have a 90 ford escort, with a dead battery at the moment. The grinding noise could be a wheel bearing. also replaced those before.
