Question about 1999 Honda Civic

1 Answer

Strange vibrations I have a '99 Civic LX 4dr/sdn and noticed a hard vibration felt in the steering wheel. I can be felt driving at high speeds 50+ (not saying its not there at lower speeds, but can be felt at higher speeds). Put on 4 new tires and no change. Tranny checked out ok. Even looked for a bad wheel bearing and nothing. Had front end rebuilt prior to this about 4 years ago so o don't think i have worn bushings or a bad tierod. What could this possibly be? Any and all help is appreciated.

The brake discs may be slightly warped.

I have a 2008 Infinity QX-56 and it shakes terribly when I apply the brakes when driving at highway speeds. It also feels like the suspension is bad when you go over a bump or hit a pot-hole.


Warped brake rotor usually cause high vibration at high speeds. But you can also feel it at lower speeds. But bad ball joints and tie rod end will cause vibration at high speeds. Ball joints will pop at pot holes, sometimes. Tie rods can be felt in the steering wheel at a stop. Move the wheel slightly to the left and right, you can feel/hear a tap as you turn it.

I have a 1994 chevy Cheyenne 1500 2wd and I have a hard vibration once I reach between 55-70. If I push the gas pedal a little harder or let off of it it goes away. Don't know what it is could u plz...


I presume that is miles per hour. If the vibration is felt in the steering wheel, the problem is probably in the front wheels. If the vibration is felt in the seat, check the rear wheels. To check the rear wheels, if it is not posi traction, just jack up one wheel at a time and bring the speed up to half the odometer reading (one wheel turns twice as fast as two wheels). To check the front wheels just rotate to the rear one wheel at a time.

Also check for bent rims and defective universal joints.

If this is happening at around 40 to 50 mph and it goes away when you go faster or slower then those speeds you probably need a wheel balanced. (please rate if this helps any Thank you)

Steering wheel feels loose. Took to garage, had


This sounds like you need new track rod ends, this would cause free play in the steering, also it could be the bottom suspension arms. the garage should have checked these though! if the wheel is vibrateing then it may need the wheels rebalanced. if it is that you steering will shake at 60mph

Vibration in the steering wheel on a 4wd truck


I just had the same issue with a 1999 2500HD and the vibration got worse above 50 mph. Problem was resolved with a new driveshaft. Old one (aluminum) was badly out of true and the problem didn't really occur until I had the U joints changed - then bent driveshaft vibration was noticeable. New driveshaft resolved issue.

Front end vibration


on both my Camrys, i had this problem. You could really notice it when you were driving down the road going 40-60 mph and punch the gas - car would vibrate, let off the gas - vibration stops, punch the gas - car vibrates...... On both, it was the CV joints. It is much easier to just replace the drive axles (with the new cv joints and boots already installed). For my last replacement, i think thy were only around $65 each.
