    You don't say if it shakes all the time or just when you apply the brakes. If it's the latter you have warped brake rotors.

    Could be ice,snow,or mud in the wheels on the inside it will make the wheels out of balance an cause the vibration.

My 1989 Chevey Celebrity started shaking the other day the front part of the car, not like the front end is messed up but it shakes.


Could be a wheel, tire, or axle shaft.
You could rotate the tires front to back and see if the vibration moves.
If it does the problem is one of the tires or wheels.
If it stays in the front, its probably one of the axle shafts. It could also be a hub bearing or something loose in the suspension. But a loose suspension part would normally show up when you hit a bump rather than on a smooth road.

Steering wheel vibrates when excellerate


if you let off the gas and it stops vibrating, have the cv axles checked. if the steering wheel shakes at parking lot speeds, a tire is bad.

I have 1998 Mercury Sable DOC. I have some vibrating in the front end, I have had bearings, ball joints, brake pads, rotors, calipers, tie rod ends replaced and the vehicle still shakes. I notice it more...


OK, I would change the tires if I had vibrating in the front end after all of that work.

Have the wheels/tires spin balanced in the front and have the tire tech check for out of roundness as it spins on the electronic balancer.

I wouldn't be surprised if the tires were out of round.

I usually recommend Goodyear or Michelin tires with an A traction and A or B Temperature rating and a long treadlife warranty (60,000 mi. or above) to get a rock solid feel in the front end at all speeds.

I just solved such a problem on my 1997 Cadillac Deville Limousine which had used Goodyear Integrity tires and replaced them with new Goodyear Assurance Tires which solved a front end and general body vibration at highway speeds.

Good luck on getting new tires for your vehicle, and hope the shakiness goes away!

My steering wheel is vibrating really bad and I can't turn the wheel


If you cannot turn the front wheels and the steering wheel was vibrating before then (since I assume that the car is undrivable now), then your car most likely has broken/damaged tie rod: check if the front wheels wobbles.
A less common problem is the actual steering/wheel rack-pinion gearing mechansim is broken and it is indicated by not being able to move both the front wheels together.
In both case, you need specialist repair.
Hope it helps.

Wicked vibration in front driver side wheel


Make sure the balance weights are still there, they can fall off from time to time. If its not that, jack it up and spin the wheel to see if you have a "flat" spot on the tire. Next grab the tire on the top and bottom and shake it, if there is play in it then the wheel bearing in bad or the ball joints need replacing.

1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara Vibrate/shake at 55-70 mph


Lift the back of your car.With a stable rest and with the two hind wheels hanging, run your car up to the speed where you experienced vibration. have someone take care of the throttle and shifting while you observe the transmission shaft. You may have an imbalanced shaft.
