Jack up the front end. Use a floor jack under the control arm and raise it to close to ride height. Grab the tire with both hands and shake top to bottom feeling for any play. you can also use a pry bar to feel for any play in the ball joint. They will also make a squeaking noise when turning the steering wheel left to right.

I'm sorry, I dd not explain myself well. I only need how to determine the engine size.
Look for the emissions sticker on the bottom side of the hood. Or send me the vin number.
