My first inclination would be to have tires balanced, unless it started suddenly, or you feel or hear something different in steering.

Ihave a 99 suburban 2500 4x4 it is shaking between 30 and 55 stops when I let of throttle and makes a rattling loose metal sound as it works up to 55mph. Any ideas on the problem


Bad tires will cause vibrations at different speeds. So will bad wheel bearings. My car made awful noise at fifty but not at forty and I had two tires the belts were broken.

Right front tire seems to wobble, shaking. Engine area of car shaking over 55. Mech friend says it's the rotor. Worried about driving.


A bad rotor would only cause a shake when you are using the brakes. A bad tire could shake at 55mph and above.
I would get a second opinion to make sure.
The shop could rotate the tires and see if the vibration moves to a different area of the car.

My car shakes when i get to 55mph or higher and shakes when i brake to stop


you have a warped rotor and possibly an imbalanced tire as well..did you ever use "fix a flat"? that will do the same thing as well to fix that? you'll need to bring the tire in to a tire store and empty the remaining fix a flat stuff and the tire leak fixed correctly. if fix a flat was never used it's the first two things I mentioned imbalance in the rim/tire or warped brake rotor

Front end shake at 55MPH on 1997 Range Rover


If it only shakes at 55 and quits above or below that speed then it is a wheel that needs balancing. You probably lost a wheel balance weight look on the outer and inner wheel for missing weight you can usually see where it was before it fell off.

1990 cherokee shakes badly only at 50-55mph


Check the front steering damper. The steering damper is a shock that is mounted horizontaly in the front. The damper is bad if you see oil leaking from it or if the car has high mileage and never been replaced.

94 grand am Head Gasket?


Check ur spark plugs for wetness, if u have water in ur cylinders, you have a gasket problem. 94-95 grand am had a problem with intake gaskets, but my grand am also had a manufacture error on the head gasket too. The dragged the heads over it putting the heads back on and smashed the rings..

I have the same problem, you need to change de oil transmission or try an additive for aut. trans that resolve the problem for a while, but is almost most better changing de oil.
