Have a wheel alignment done and check for loose ball joints and steering linkage. Check for loose rear end suspension points.. Check for engine mount including transmission mount failure.

Why does my 2007 Chrysler 300 start to **** when accelerating around 60 mph and when I take my foot off the gas pedal? No brake was applied.


you need to check you plugs and wires on the car also looking into changing your fuel filter may be a great idea , just a normal tune-up on the car would help this out dramatically

Loud thud when i hit a bump. car wobbles going over 60 mph. any ideas?


I think that is somewhat obvious
You stop using a vehicle that wobbles
at any speed just from a safety perspective
There has to be something worn or loose under
the front suspension & possible even the rear
If you never work on or have vehicle experience then
know the shops you have used for most of your life

Steering wobbles when driving


Improperly balanced wheels can cause the wheels to wobble at speed which can be felt through the steering wheel. A local tyre shop can test the wheels for balance and make the necessary adjustments to the wheels by adding weights to even out the balance.

To fix the wobble you need to know what's causing it. The best way to do that (although frustrating) is to go through the common causes one-by-one until you find it. Let's start small and work our way up:
* Start with a quick visual inspection under the front end of the vehicle. Look for shiny or damaged steel, indicative of metal that's moving around.
* Check to make sure all bolts are tightened on the front track bar
* Check the tires since they typically break down faster and are more prone to storing and releasing the energy that causes the wobble. Are they properly balanced and inflated to the manufacturer's suggested PSI? Did you recently have them balanced? You might try bringing the car back and asking them to make sure the balance is still true.
* After that check the front wheel bearings by jacking the the front tires off the ground, grabbing the top and bottom of the tire and trying to wiggle it back and forth. If you notice any lateral give you might want to have a mechanic check those bearings for you.
* Look for loose connections in the tie rod ends and drag link ends.
* Has your Jeep been lifted? Might want to check the front axle casters.
* If all else fails, you might need a new steering stabilizer. Although if you do replace the stabilizer you might want to replace other components as well since the death wobble shakes everything and can loosen other components as well.

Have your van checked for alignment, camber and have those front tires balanced.
