2003 Toyota Highlander

Asked by Jul 22, 2014 at 06:54 AM about the 2003 Toyota Highlander Base 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a problem with my 2003 Toyota Highlander.  The car pulls and jerks when it's stationary.  Toyota tech stated that the motor mounts were bad, so I replaced 3 of the mounts.  However, the car still jerks and pulls.   What could be the problem?

How many dose it have? How are the transmission mounts?

If the vehicle is pulling and jerking, I would bring it in and have the front end completely gone over. Something has got to be severely out of line. You may have a seized brake piston that will cause it to jerk also. Next time you go for a spin, feel your front rims and see if one side appears to be much hotter than the other.
