    I have the same problem and mechanics tell me that my tires need balancing. So I get it balanced and an alignment. Still I have that slight vibration that as months pass it gets stronger. Changed my front axles alot of vibration went away but still that slight vibration that as months pass it gets stronger then my front tires are worn unevenly like it has a toe-in problem so I get the tires replaced w/ balance and alignment. Yet again That slight vibration still exist its driving me crazy!!!!

I would check the steering stabilizer. to see if theres anyy play in it. Is the steeringwheel vibrating left and right very quick? If it is it may be the steering stablizer. Hope this helps

You will need to check things logically. Run the truck in the air and note where the vibration is at. Take the wheels OFF and put a few lug nuts to hold the rotors on, take the truck to 45mph or whatever the vibration is the worst. is it still there? if its gone, check wheels/ tires. if its still there, check rotors, axles. A drive shaft will make a rapid vibration at low speeds since it turns 3 to 4 times faster than the wheels. does it vibrate on or off the gas? Can you power through the vibration like go 60 and then coast back through? You have replaced a lot of parts that would not cause vibrations. Are you just changing parts willy nilly or is someone actually checking and verifying that these parts really bad?

check your tires for a bad spot or a knot. this could cause the vibration. check you switch and see if it has power. if it does maybe the a relay.could also be a lose ground wire.

Hard vibrations at 45mph or more


two things would do this that I can think of right now. wheel balance, and or driveshaft balance. I would go get my wheels balanced at a shop first.

2003 Acura MDX, makes noise and vibration while driving.


If it happens with light accelleration then there's a good chance it's your torque converter. This is one of the few weak points with MDX

Vibration at 45 mph.


first, if the milage is high it could be a cv halfshaft even if the boots are not split. if the tires are new and no rims are bent, make sure there is no fix -a- flat in the tires, (liquid will not balance) and cause a severe vibration. i would suggest you take it back to your shop and have them put it on a lift, raise up the front wheels under the outer part of the lower control arm where the front is not hanging down too far and start the vehicle. run it up to 45mph to 60mph and have them feel in the drivetrain for vibrations and shakes.if it is felt with the car this way the vibration is in the drivtrain. inner cv's or in the transmission. thanks and let me know what you find out.
