Question about 1996 Honda Accord

Honda Accord Vibrates

When I drive my car at about 40 MPH, it seems to shake. Sort of vidrating. First of all, the mechanics at Tire Kingdom within the last few months have replaced the tires and brake rotors and pads as the steering wheel was pulsating in the past when I applied the brakes. The brakes are working good with no pulsation after the rotors were replaced, except that now the car is shaking as I coast the vehicle say down from 50 MPH to about 40 MPH. It don't feel it driving on the highway or say at 20 or 30 MPH in the city traffic. The mechanics at Tire Kingdom checked out what they could, but can't figure out what is causing it. They say I may have to take it to the dealer and have a Honda certified mechanic to pinpoint it. The mechanics at Tire Kingdom says that when they put the car in neutral at about 40 MPH, the shaking seems to stop. They are just not sure what is causing this.

    The car just seems to have this vigorous vibration at about 35 - 45MPH. The steering wheel is not pulsing anymore. It don't appear to be a brake issue anymore. It feel like a front end vibration coming from somewhere.

    I would have thought that if it's a front end alignment or wheel balancing problem, I would notice this vibration on the highway at higher speeds as well, but I don't. I could be wrong.

    All the tires have been replaced over the past 6 months. The axle, tie rod, and bearings have been replaced also. A Honda mechanic suggested to have someone check the front radius rod bushings for wear and the bolts that hold them to the front lower cross member are tight.

    The only other two things that can
    cause a steering wheel shimmy is a bad front tire(s), bad steering
    components and bad wheel bearings. Three things that can cause a
    steering wheel shimmy, a bad front tire(s), bad steering components and
    bad wheel bearings. You can try rotating and balancing the tires and
    see what happens.

    Then,
    while it is up in the air, check all the front end parts, steering rack
    bushings, inner and outer tie rods etc. Then inspect the wheel bearings
    for play and noise.

.....front tires 2001 accord thump noise 40/50 mph. what could this be from? worse when acceleration up hill


One of the tires could be out of balance or out of round! I suggest that you take your vehicle to your mechanic, dealership or tire shop and get the front end and front tires looked at.

Vehicle shakes at 40 mph


Could be alignment struts or tires. If it pulls to one side and your front tires are warn on the inside more then its most likely alignment. If your tire pressure is low that could also be the reason. If you hear a "clunk" sound or a knock when you are driving over bumps its your struts. I would check your tire pressure first. Tires usually are supposed to be at 38-40 psi for most cars and midsize suv's and trucks. Also using a different tires ( one or more different types or brands on the same vehicle) can cause this as well. And always make sure they are all at the same air pressure and none of your balancing weights have come off.

Seem like you need to have at-least the two front tires high speed balanced. This shaking at high speed is most likely due to the tire being out of balanced. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Honda Accord 2003 - Engine and steering vibration


My 2003 honda accord was doing this too. The problem is the inner CV axle bearings. The fix is to replace both CV axles. When you choose your CV axle choose a new one not a reman, there are known problems with used CV axles. It's not a hard job. It took me 1hr to do both sides on a lift.
