My truck shakes at highway speeds


How old are the tires on the vehicle-sounds like a balance problem that happens at certain speeds. Does the vibration happen at any other speeds? When were the tires balanced last? If balance is ok then check out the steering system for loose and worn parts. There is a possibility of a park brake backing plate rust issue- what is the make and model. Newer trucks use a park brake with 4 wheel disc brake that mounts in the smaller cavity of the rotor on the rear axle. This would cause the noise you describe and the vibration.

I have a bad vibration that appears to be coming from the rearend. Started out only at certain speeds now it's all the time. Stops when you let off the gas. Shakes the entire vehicle.


A couple of things to check. It may be a wheel bearing, shock, cv joint, or a very common cause is that one or both of your back tires are worn irregularly. This causes the car to shimmy and get progressively worse as you have explained. It usually happens on the front end of the car, but can occur in the back.

Put new tires on front(dealership in march-rear in december) now the vehicle is vibrating @ high speeds- seems like the vibration is in the rearend mostly


You probably need to balance your tires? Hit any curbs lately, any large bumps? You can check this by doing either 50 mph or 70 mph. If the vibration is most notable at those speeds then your tires need to be balanced. If it is all the time then it could be a bent rim or a bad tire itself. Bent rims can be balanced out to a degree, but defective tires cannot.

After this winter, the blower motor on my 2002 sebring convertible is vibrating terribly (shakes the rear view mirror on high) - how do I access and replace this?


Just go on the passengers side under the dash and remove the insulator panel to see the blower motor.What usually happens is when it gets cold out critters from outside will work their way into your car and make a nest in the blower motor fan.This throws the fan out of balance and hence the vibration.Once you can see the blower motor then remove it.There are 3 or 4 screws.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Ford focus 2004 vibrates when cold and right turns , once the car worms up the vibration calms doun


Hi

Is this engine vibration? if so then I would check the air mass sensor, they start to do this when the car is cold and ofetn are fine once the car is warm. You can remove the air mass sensor and clean it up with carb cleaner, this normally fix's them but not always, certainly worth a try before buying anything.

They are easy to remove and refit, let me know if you need any help.
Is the cars revs / rpms rough when cold?

If so then most likey it will be the air mass sensor/air flow sensor.

Regards
Dan

Have grand caravan 2001 awd i get to 50 it starts vibrates think it might be carrier bearing after 50 it seems to lessen some no problem in front end what do u think


Most vibrations at speeds from 45mph to 55mph indicate tire balance problems. If there is no vibration outside this range have the tire balance checked. If there is a vibration that starts around 50mph and continues at higher speeds there could be a problem with the CV joint(s).

1. make sure the tires are still balanced. 2. Check the U-joints on the drive shaft. 3. Have the driveshaft check for balance.
