Front end vibration and shudder on turning vehicle off

My Envoy has a vibration in the front end that seems to come and go at will. It's more towards the passenger side, and can be slight, or vibrate the whole vehicle. I put it in for the front rotors and brakes, so those are good. 4 new tires, those are good. They also hooked it up to a computer, and everything looked fine. THey test drove it, couldn't replicate the problem, which is bull, as even my kids feel it and comment.

Now it "shudders" when I turn off the ignition.

I had a similar problem with my 2005 Envoy. It turned out that the bearings had to be replaced. Both sides. I hope its not your problem, it was expensive.

Idk about your oil light, but check that the oil has the correct amount, as for your vibration there are a number of things it could be. The tires may not be balanced, or were balanced improperly, check to see if your tires have a directional tread, make sure they are rotating the correct way, the other thing it might be is that you could have a broken motor mount, you can have a mechanic look at it, or try to locate all the mounts your self and check it out.

MY 2005 EQUINOX AWD front right wheel intermittent braking and shaking


Could be caused by a sticking/failing CV joint. If you check boots and see cracks or tears most likely the Joint then got debris which could lead to failure.
Confirm that it FEELS like brakes are active but your NOT applying brakes. If this is the case then my thought on CV joint would be first check. I had one fail a few years ago and it was similar. Vibration started and then I could feel the vehicle slowing.

If you ARE applying brakes and you fee the shudder or vibration then it may be related to a tie rod end. A worn tie rod allows the wheel to go off track slightly and the result we feel when driving is a shudder or vibration.

Hope this helps guide to a solution.

My kia front brakes vibrate and the car shudders


take your car to a brake shop and have the rotors turned if your vibration and shuddering is occurring when you actually apply the brakes.

03 Trailblazer Front End Noise/Vibration


I had similar problem with my 03 trailblazer. It had a low dull hum in the front end with a little vibration being felt in gas pedal. Noise increased over a couple weeks and was louder turning to the left and quiter turning to right. A GM mechanic friend of mine replaced the front right hub and took care of the problem. Hub was about $160 at Autozone.

Vibration shudder at around 30km


Hey Pontiac,

There are two things, firstly get your front wheel rims put on a lathe machine to check for distortion, if not, then get the wheels balanced on a digital tyre balancer.

let me know if this works

Vibration


sounds like you have a loose or dry rotted exhaust hanger, i know it sounds crazy, but it could be the exhaust rattling you hear.

go to the tail pipe of the truck, and with your foot push on the tail pipe, if you have more than 1 inch of movment this is your problem.
