Check the condition of your tires and suspension. this problem is usually caused by bad component or alignment. Special attention is given to camber and caster.

First, the main problem is that the wheels need to be balanced! Next check that the front end assemblies did not occur any damage from all of that shaking over time. Next, check the wheel alignment.

SOURCE: When I accelarate the truck shakes and has no

The check engine light comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

When i use the brakes over 50 mph the front shakes. between 40 and 50 mph theres a little shaking, below 40mph its brakes smooths


A slight shimmy under braking is usually the result of a brake rotor that is not true. Sounds like you may have a warpped brake rotor...I would check that, and your front suspension componets for wear.... I hope this helps.

There are a lot of things that can cause it to shimmey, and there is not enought room here to explane it all. My advise to you is to take it to a frontend alinement shop and have it chk. out, could be serious.

Get your tires checked out, you may have a seperated tire, or may need to get the balanced checked. and check your air pressure. then while your at the shop get your suspension checked out. while its up in the air.

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

My steering wheel shakes/shimmies while driving. what's the problem? alignment? tires? rotation? what?


Tires, unless it happens when the brakes are applied, that would be warped brake rotors.
