Computer testing is not going to find most mechanical failures. The computer systems in your vehicle controll electrical circuits.
It sounds to me like you may have some suspension bushings that are worn out. If it feels like the front (i.e. the sterring wheel is shaking, then check all the front suspension parts for looseness and wear. If it feels like the rear, make sure that the strut arms for the rear suspension do not have worn out bushings. Check all of the struts and/or shocks.
I had one of these one time that would be cruising down the highway with no problems, then you hit a rough spot in the pavement or a small pothole and the thing would start shaking so violently that it was threatening to go off the road. It turned out to be worn out bushings in the rear suspension.
Could be something sticking.Trans filter should be changed at least every 40,000-50,000 miles.If it has never been changed or has over 50,000 since the last filter service would start with a fluid flush and filter change.Well hope this helps, and good luck.
When was the last time your wheels where spin balanced? Have the tires checked for wheel balance its probably out of balance. It will cause the tires to cup and it will make flat spots on the tires. To check rubb your hand over tire make sure tires don't have cupping on the outside tread and or flat spots through out the tire. Cupping - one tread is slightly higher than the rest.
Flat spots- center of tire will be flat or it could be all over the tire.
The part time switch in the gearbox is sticking in the on position locking the 4x4 on. It feels and looks really bad because the front wheels are trying to pull the car left or right, while the rear axle is pushing you forward. This is at it's worst when in full lock on road or hard surfaces. This is why 4x4 is for off road only.
Hello, I have seen many differentials go bad on this model but you saying that the noise went away after you sprayed it with water doesn't make sense. If you want to check the wheel bearings, jack up the car and check the movement of your wheels by grabbing the top of the tire with one hand and the bottom of the tire with other and see if there is too much movement. If there is too much movement, then you need to replace the wheel bearings. (big job) You also need to check the brake calipers to see if they are sticking. You can take a large screw driver and pry back the pads. They should move back with a little effort. If not, maybe the calipers are sticking. I hope this helps. CYA, Gator241
