Re: Front end vibration when accelerating above 45 mph,...

Have the CV joints checked for excessive play, that is the most common cause of this type of vibration on acceleration.

Front-end vibration in my lincoln ls v8. you can only hear it when you go over 45 mph


I strongly suggest you check the lug nuts for tightness and if they are ok on your right front tire then go to a tire service center and have them balance and check the belts-either is very dangerous because it will A-fafall off or B-blow at high speed. Good luck!

2002 Camry 6 cyc 165000miles. Under load 45-60+ mph there is a Vibration - shimmy. Take foot of the gas goes away. Tire are 5000 miles old and 3 motor mounts have been replaced - frt - rt and Dog b


If engine mounts are all OK then it's a bit more mysterious. Does that include the dogbone engine steady at the top of the engine?

Was there any recent heavy impact with a kerb or pothole? I'm thinking a bent wheel rim or a torn-out suspension bush.

The tires are not old enough to be worn out of round, but perhaps a balance weight has fallen off the rims on the front.

Another test you can do is to jack the car up at the front, have someone hold the steering wheel, grab the front tyre at each edge horizontally, and give it a hard shake in and out alternately. There should be no looseness evident in the feel of this.

If there is, check the tie rod end ball joints, and the steering rack end ball joints.

Hi, I have a 2001 Buick. We just replaced the front tires. Shortly after that we noticed the car vibrates at around 45 to MPH, after we get past this mph the vibration stops. It is not worse when we turn...


Let me see know at 45 miles per hour a vehicle usually shifts gears into the highest gear so could it be the torque converter hanging up and not shifting quick enough or maybe its the U joints. Have the transmission fluid checked for proper level and color.
Here's a small test for you when your accelerating up to 55 miles per hour try letting off the pedal at 44 miles per hour and then reaccelerating up to the 55 mph and tell me if it`s smoother if it is then chances are that it`s hang up on third gear. There's also a electric sensor located on transmission that assist shifting it`s usually controlled by the engine timing.
One more thing did the repair man check to see if the tires where directional tires if there not put on right it could cause vibration and early wear out .Hope i helped you.

2000 GMC Sonoma Vibrates at 25 and 45 mph


Generally, the tire vibration only arrives at 60ish.
However, if you have a distorted tire, or worse, more than one, or even worse, Buckled Wheels!
You are inevitably going to experience vibrations, at varying speeds.
Take the wheels off, and make sure, the wheels are actually still,, er, circular.
It's best to put them on a Balancing Machine, then you can see how bad they are.
If the problem isn't solved soon, you may well be finding yourself, forking out for new wheel bearings.
That should do it.
Happy motoring.

Vibration from 45-60 mph..new michlin tires ,aligned and balanced


have the steering rack checked for excess play, also have all the front end bushing checked, this is a common cause of this type of problem, it is the front end that is doing it, finding the worn part(s) is the job that needs to be done to correct this.
