A bad inner tie rod knocks when a car makes a turn. Tie rods that become worn over time lose their stiffness and this makes turning very unstable.

How do you replace the inner tie rod on 2000 Nissan maxima?

You need an inner tie rod tool. Looks like a pipe with a drive socket on one end, and a receiver on the other. Unbolt the outer tie rod from the knuckle, and loosen the lock nut on the rod. Either use a puller to remove the outer end, or hit the knuckle with a hammer, and remove the outer end from the knuckle. Unscrew the outer from the inner rod. [break the lock nut loose before removing the outer from the knuckle, or you will not be able to loosen it] Remove the bellows from the rack and inner rod. Use a drift or punch and a hammer to push the lock plate off the inner rod end. Place the correct adapter over the inner rod end, slide the rod inside the tool, and lock the receiver end of the tool on to the adapter. place a ratchet on the drive end of the tool, and remove the rod.

How do to tell if the crank shaft is bad on a 2 stroke dirt bike?

It could sound very bad when it runs. It will sound like a grinding or rumbling or rattling sound when it runs. If it gets very bad it will seize, that is just lock up and quit turning. Dirt bikes have tough lives, and if they get mud or dust in them the bearings in the crank and big end on the rod will start to sound bad before they lock up completely. And you can hold your ear up to the engine when it is running, if there is a ticking or knocking sound coming from the cylinder then that is just the usual wore out piston noise, if there is a rumbling or rattling sound when it runs coming from the bottom of the engine that is the crank or rod bearning.

You have to have the car in the air with the tire off. you take the outer tie rod off by taking the nut that holds it to the knuckle, loosening the nut that holds the inner and outer tie rods together. spin off the the outer tie rod and count the rotations. remove the boot that is on the rack and inner tie rod. you will need the inner tie rod tool to remove the inner tie rod then reverse to put together.
