I have a 2008 Infinity QX-56 and it shakes terribly when I apply the brakes when driving at highway speeds. It also feels like the suspension is bad when you go over a bump or hit a pot-hole.


Warped brake rotor usually cause high vibration at high speeds. But you can also feel it at lower speeds. But bad ball joints and tie rod end will cause vibration at high speeds. Ball joints will pop at pot holes, sometimes. Tie rods can be felt in the steering wheel at a stop. Move the wheel slightly to the left and right, you can feel/hear a tap as you turn it.

Steering wheel not centered on my 96 chev caprice classic


This is caused by needing an alignment or worn front end parts. An alignment will correct the steering wheel. It goes out of align, when hitting pot holes, curb ETC, God-Bless!

I hit a pot hole and my battery died the next morning. I got it tested and it was bad. I bent both right side wheels after hitting a pot hole. My car won't stay charged. Active steering is off too.


I would check all earth wire on your car , as it sounds if there is a bad earth wire or a broken one ., this would explain your battery going flat and the flat battery would probably cause your problem with the steering as it will probably be an electric steering pump

What makes the steering wheel jerk back and forth if I hit a pot hole? Then if ihit another it stops.


Tie rods are bent or bad and car is out of alignment. You have to get the steering rod replaced and the car realigned

Alloy has been buckled due to a pot hole) now tire keeps going flat.


You need a new wheel. Your continued use of this damaged wheel is not only inconvenient (you must continue to blow up the tire) but also dangerous. Your tire was probably damaged when you hit the pot hole and could suddenly fail at any time. Your wheel is now also out of balance and can cause other mechanical troubles with your 27 year old car.

Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com

My 2005 Chevy Impala's power stearing problem?


From the sounds of it, that pothole messed up your steering. Something is binding in the steering train, could be a damaged tie rod end, one of the other steering joints, or even the rack and pinion steering itsself. When it's binding, the power steering pump has to work too hard, slowing the engine down, making your lights dim because it's also slowing the alternator(on the same belt drive) and furthering your steering problem. You need to get it checked out immediately before something breaks and gets you into an accident. Remember, if steering linkage breaks, you have NO control of your vehicle, and it doesn't care if you're driving 70 mph on the highway.

The front end and steering wheel shakes when i hit a hole or bump


This usually indicates a problem with the suspension components. Check for play in front end suspension, 1st thing I would check would be the steering damper, it's often overlooked, and could be the cause. If that checks out ok, jack up and check for play in wheels, which could be caused by worn ball joints, tie rod ends, wheel bearings. A lot of possibilities, generally play in any components can trigger the shaking you're experiencing when hitting a pot hole or bump. Good luck!
