Fh16 Volvo truck vibrating

Truck started vibrating so have swapped all tyres off the truck and put another set on, still no change. Removed both drive shafts and inspected uni joints and alignment of shafts all is good. The truck vibrates bad at about 80 to 90 kph. It is the same in different gears and also doesn't change when under load or when rolling in neutral. Any ideas on where to start next would be great. Thanks Luke

There are many things that can induce a vibration in the truck, but it seems that most of the common vibration problems are centered in two areas, balance and wheel/tire defects.

SOURCE: Inordinant amount of vibration during acceleration

Clunking can be from c/v joints, hub bearing, lower ball joints or strut tower bearings, also from engine mounts (I know you checked but with a stickshift car it's difficult to load it properly without frying the clutch) Vibration likewise is difficult to find when it happens under load for same reason.A code check may or may not give you much to work with and O2 readouts often come from something other than an O2 sensor failure, rather from a failure upstream that sends the exhaust mixture beyond the sensors range.
It's impossible to make a diagnosis on these problems on-line because being there is important in doing this kind of diagnosis. I suggest you seek the opinion of a well trained experienced tech.who can actually be there to observe and test.

Vibration throughout car...change engine mounts, changed centre bearing, gearbox mount, changed both front and rear couplers still have bad vibrations

check for the drive joint phasing and angle setting of the center bearing
mostly with center bearing , the drive shaft has to be split and the flange removed for the bearing replacement
the flange can be put back on in any position and that will throw out the s joint phasing
Take it to a drive line specialist shop and ash them to check the phasing and angles to eliminate the vibration
The vibration could have been from a bad joint and the new joint was not properly installed which will also vibrate
If you are not familiar with the term phasing It is when the joints are in direct line with each other when placed on a flat surface and allows the differentiating speeds of the crosses as they pass through the 90 degrees to cancel each other out and stop the vibration
the drive line specialist will know and explain it better as he will have the drive shaft to show you on

249 DL Volvo. It's been sitting in my driveway for some time, I put new tired on it about a month ago. Needed a new battery and once I put that in it started like a gem. The day I got it started I took it...

don't drive it until you change the tyre
if it was the tyre you replaced then the tyre was faulty when you got it.
if it is the opposite side then the belts have moved from sitting so long and it will need replacing

2004 Dodge Dakota - vibration when accelerating from stop. Even happens when in neutral and I slowly accelerate.

if the vibration increases as you accelerate and change through the gears you could possibly have a universal joint on half shaft that is worn beyond its limits.If it only vibrates as a the motor increases the rpms it could be that your harmonic balancer this damaged all worn out.There is another possibility and that is that you have a damaged tyre that goes out of balance very quickly.

Volvo 740 gl 1988 b230f automatic 4 speed transmission....Strange vibration at 50 to 90 kmh...

You don't give any details about the vibration, you know what "strange" means but the rest of us have to make a guess.

The most likely cause is that the wheels are out of balance. This can happen if you've recently struck a kerb or pothole, if an existing balance weight has fallen off, if you have recently removed a wheel and refitted it, or if you've had a tyre repaired or replaced without having the wheel rebalanced afterwards.

There are many other potential causes, but getting the wheel balancing checked and adjusted is the cheapest and easiest thing to start with. Get the balancing checked and then report back if the problem is not resolved.
