SOURCE: steering wheel vibrates at speed above 55 mph

Most likely the front tires need to balanced or are worn unevenly. Have all four tires rotated and balanced.

Steering wheel vibrating really bad all the sudden


you have an issue with a front tire more than likely. or could be the front rotor. I would bet my last breath its' tire or break/rotor related. Maybe even a wheel bearing but it usually doesn't cause vibration in steering wheel.

WHEN TURNING THE STEERING WHEEL IT VIRBRATES


If you are turning the steering wheel all the way to the "lock" position, you are probably putting too much pressure on your power steering pump and you are most likely getting som drive-belt slippage.

Buick lesabre starts vibrating at 45 mph and stops around 55 mph...the steering wheel does not shake much but you can feel it vibrating just the same.....had new tires put on and balanced for the 2nd...


A vibration such as you are talking about could be caused by more then one thing. First it could be caused by a broken belt in one of your tires. I could also be caused by a bent rim, a warped rotter, or a bad cv joint. I hope this helps you solve your problem.

The past week my car, specifically the front end has been vibrating especially the steering wheel whenever I drive over 60 mph. At first I thought it was just because there was ice frozen around the struts...


High speed steering wheel vibrations and wobbling are almost always due to an unbalanced tire. Start there, cheap, and then move onto more expensive front end part repairs. If you have those silly mag type big wheels which collect and hold gunks of ice in them, then this is what you can expect.

Vibrating steering wheel on 2005 F-150. Steering wheel vibrates at 26 mph then fades away.


Your front tires could be out of balance, or out of the round. Have it balanced.
Shock absorber and /or suspension components worn or damaged.
Lose or worn out steering parts.
Doe's do it when you braking.

Car shaking and vibrating at 55 mph. and does it again at 65-70.


Hi:
Since your BMW 540 series is a rear wheel drive car, a common cause of that sort of vibration is often the U joints on your drive shaft. The vibration often only shows up and certain speeds.

It isn't a particularly expensive repair, but is something to have checked out!

1996 dodge grand caravan vibration 45 mph to 55 mph replaced right front axel still same problem vibration no felt in steering


Vibrations while driving like you are describing can come from tires that have defects (internally broken belts) (wheel weights that have fallen off) or a bent rim (perhaps from another driver [not you :-) ] hitting a curb) Are the tires worn? Have they been balanced and rotated regularly? You report no vibration in the steering wheel.
Vibrations during braking can be warped rotors or discs (but this doesn't sound like your problem since these kind are usually felt in the steering wheel during braking).
If and only if you feel like you can do this safely,
you can try getting the car up to 55, placing the car in neutral, then switching the "engine off" but leave the "key on" (be warned the power steering will go out but the vehicle can still be steered though the steering wheel will be much stiffer) if you try this (do it perhaps in a vacant parking lot or on an empty road) and the vibration goes away with the engine off but while the vehicle is still moving, then the vibration is engine or transmission related. If this is the case you might hope for maybe a bad engine mount. Bad engine mounts can be diagnosed with the vehicle stopped as well. However, if the vibration remains with the van moving forward but with the engine off, the vibration is likely a problem with the tires or suspension. Try to provide some more info.
If you don't feel comfortable trying the above suggestion, please take the vehicle in to an ASE certified suspension and steering professional for further diagnosis.

Finally, I had a similar situation happen to me today. I was riding with a friend in their van and the vehicle started vibrating more and more around 55 mph. We stopped and carefully checked the front tires (including the lug nuts for tightness) but
found a tire defect. (it had several broken steel belts that caused a bulge in the tire and thus the vibration) We changed the tire and the vibration was gone. Good luck to you.
