As subcomponent of your Buick Special's steering unit, the tie rod end links the steering knuckles to the rods. Each time you rotate the actual wheel, the Buick Special tie rod end relays the force into the knuckle assembly, causing the auto wheels to move. It'll over time wear out as caused by exposure to pressure and torque.
So for the tie rod end of your Buick Special to actually work, both of its inner and outer ends should be oiled now and then. When the rod ends aren't oiled properly, damage due to heat can actually happen. Tire wear notches also mean a severely busted tie rod end so be quite sure to keep your eye out for these signs. Driving with broken Buick Special tie rod ends is quite dangerous because you will not have full control of your Buick Special's steering subcomponents, so fix or replace a malfunctioning one very soon. Always choose quality OE parts for better durability you can rely on for years.
