Question about 2004 Cadillac Deville

Open Question

I feel a grinding mostly when I step on the gas and my cadillac deville shimmies at 59+

Just got the tie rods fixed in the front. That helped the shimmy, but it's still there. It gets worse at about 58-65 m.p.h. I also feel a grinding when I step on the gas pedal. What the heck?

Car shimmies at 45 mph


have a front suspension check done and replace any worn ball joints and other failed parts . Check tyres for bulges in the side walls and belt separation . Have a wheel alignment done as this problem is a Castor wobble from negative castor settings. If a 4WD vehicle with a shocky on the tie rod bar have it replaced as it is not opertaional

How do i no if my front end on my 1996 jeep cherokee is bad? when i put on the brakes it shimmys, i change the roters , & clipers & pads . nothing work


The rotors, caliper, pads are brakes, and won't cause shimmy, even if the rotors are running out, you will only feel it in the brake pedal.

Shimmy is usually bad tie rods or wheel bearings, bad hub. If you changed the rotors, then you already have jacked up the car, you need to jack it up and move the tire just as if it was turning left and right, it should NOT move, if it does, its the tie rods. Now normally if it moves Lt or Rt its tie rods, if there is play pulling it directly towards you and pushing it back its bearings hub. Pushing on top and bottom face of the tire and getting play is usually the ball joint. If you can't figure out which one it is have a tech check it and tell you, then do the work yourself if you have to.

1998 Chrysler Sebring front end squeak


It could be a powersteering leak. Sometimes there is a shaft seal under the steering column inside that needs to be greased because f squeaks. The brake problem is from warped rotors, most likely the front since you feel it in the steering wheel.

Front wheel shakes while braking


Several possibilities. Try stopping the car with the parking brake and see if you notice as much shimmy. While loose tie rod ends can cause problems, it sounds more like the rotors may need resurfacing. A worn wheel bearing could cause a problem. Jack the car up so the wheels are off the ground and see if you can move the wheel back and forth. Loose tie rod ends would also show up with this test.

1995 jeep wrangler shimmy's


not a big problem. It may be tie rod wearing. If you hear a click when turning it would be the ball joints. If it does not make clicking sound, then most likely tie rod ends or improper alignment
