This can be an elusive problem to find. You may have the problem with no load and it just does not show up. You have to look at the difference it makes on the truck to carry a load.

A soft spot on a tire would make more of a difference with a load than without. Front-end play can manifest itself when the weight shifts off the front-end and allows the parts to contract and form excess play. This would correct when braking allows the weight to shift back forward.

Play in U-joints. The excess weight would strain worn needle bearings in worn U-joints because there is more torque required to twist the driveshaft with a heavy load.

Bad motor mounts or transmission mounts. If weak, would allow drivetrain to pitch.

Transmission settings. If automatic, could be needing an adjustment for shift points.

Bad wires, cracked sparkplugs if a gasoline motor. Cracked coil-pak

If you are under the Mileage Warranty, this could be a Warranty problem.

What could make the steering of my Honda accord 1993 vibrate each time l engage d gear to drive this get worst when d ac is on the vibration is more noticeable.


Sounds like bad engine/trans mounts. The more load you put on it the more vibration engine makes. If mounts are bad, vibration will transfer to body and steering

Sounds like a bad spark plug, spark plug wire. Probably the spark plug wire. They usually act that way when load is applied. It may misfire under light load and not at idle. Try plugs and wires.

Subaru vibration


have you checked the engine mounts, weak engine mounts can make it vibrate, if you could tell me more were the vibration is sounding like its coming from front or back it may help more to find the problem. also have you had the balance weight checked on the drive shaft. this can cause a problem like this. if you have a ring on the drive shaft there is a ring, then it is missing. and that is why you are geting this fault. you will need to have a new one fitted.

Bad front end vibration while in gear at idle only makes dash and floorboard vibrate


When you are in gear at idle with your foot on the clutch you have placed an axial load on the crank which is pushed forward in the main bearings against a thrust bearing. I suspect a failing thrust face on this bearing as it only works under a clutch release load. The only other point that is under load is the clutch throw out bearing but if that is failing you should be hearing a tinny type of rattle when you have the foot on the clutch

2000 Dodge Dakota vibration while driving


sound like the u-joints in the driveshaft. Lay under the truck and where the u-joints are try moving the driveshaft up and down. If it moves then the u-joints are bed. This will cause a tremendous vibration under a load and the faster it spins it will smooth out.

I would next check the condition of the engine, transmission and transfer case mounts. The mounts all have rubber inserts in them to absorb vibration and if the rubber starts to deteriorate or drycrack it can cause a vibration, especially under load.

Loud vibration on 2005 jeep liberty when under load.


Sounds a lot like a wheel balance problem, Does vibration go away over 55? In checking driveshaft joints...If you looked at them with the vehicle in park with the wheels on the ground, the shaft is "loaded" and cannot be correctly checked. To do this properly, vehicle should be in neutral with both rear wheels off the ground. Sometimes a joint can appear to be tight but still be bad. Check for traces of powdered rust around the rubber boots right where the end caps meet the cross on the inside. Any rust there indicates lack of grease and the likelyhood that the joint is frozen.
Check both balance and joints. Good luck.

Wobbling of car while accelerating


the u joints in the drive shaft. (CV joints on front wheel drive) more strss on the joints when accelerating so they cause the vibration. no stress/load smooth run. Replace the joints and you'll feel a big difference.
