I would normally say that you perhaps have a CV joint going out, or even the possibility of having a brake caliper that's sticking, but you're saying that the driver's side wheel vibrates? I'm guessing that you're referring to the front driver's side wheel. However, I don't understand how it would be vibrating while sitting still. If you have a vibration while also sitting still it's possible that you have a motor mount that's bad. Most of today's motor mounts have a rubber insert to help to deaden any possible vibrations that the motor might have. Over time, these rubber inserts tend to break down, crack and eventually fall out of the mount altogether. Make sure to check this, as having your motor rocking back and forth under the hood, even just a little bit, will eventually cause further issues if not tended to. If your motor mounts are good, then I'd most likely refer back to the first couple of possibilities that I mentioned. Hope this proves to be helpful and have a nice morning!

On A 2003 Pontiac Montana AWD, What could cause vibration in the front end while accelerating a right hand turn?


Left wheel bearing or either CV axle,(left or right) Axles usually make the vibration turn left or right. Bearings will get loader turning. When you turn right, the pressure is on the left side.

How do i fix the vibrating noise/feeling especially on the left hand side of the nissan bluebird sylphy?


If the noise gets worse making a right turn, then goes away or close on a left turn. It is a wheel bearing. If it an engine mount. Put a jack under it and lift the engine slightly. If the vibration goes away. I suggest you replace all the other mounts.

I have a vibration at 70 miles per hour


if the wheel alignment is faulty ( castor wobble ) at 70 mph there is no way that you can describe it as a vibration as it virtually rip the steering wheel out of your hands. If it is a torque converter problem then at around 3850-4025 rpm stationary there will be a vibration of the vehicle and engine The sort of vibration that you are experiencing at 70 mph will come from a drive line problem. If rear wheel drive then it could be faulty "U" joints, worn slip joint or failed rear engine mount
If front wheel drive it may be cv joints or bent drive shafts,wheel bearings or brake callipers not moving freely on the mounting bolts.

Sounds like a wheel bearing, and or a bad brake pad. Decide which wheel you think it is and pull that wheel to look at at the brake shoes or pads. feel for roughness when you turn the wheel by hand.

I have a vibration in the front drivetrain on my Sorento. the vibration starts at about 30-35 mph and gets loudest at about 65-70 mph. The weird thing is that teh Vibration and associated noise completely...


ball joints or bent rim. Does it click or thunk when turning? It may be tie rod as well. You can lift it up and try turning wheel by hand and shake it to see how much play there is.
Check the there is a weight on the rim. Every one is supposed to have one.!!!!

Noisy sound coming from the wheel while driving . . .


If it's wheel bearings, they should get louder the faster you go. Also, if you have one going out, loading up the suspension on that side will make it louder. For instance, if you have a bad front left bearing, and you take a right-hand turn at speed on the highway, that will load the left side suspension since the car will roll to the left. The noise would get louder. Similarly, if you took a left turn, and the weight shifted off of the left side, the noise would go away.

Try jacking up the car and grabbing the wheel at the top and bottom and shaking it hard. If you get any play or looseness in the wheel, chances are the bearing is bad.
