First of all, when is the last time you got the tires balanced? It could be the wheel bearing if you hear a noise that is increasing with the vehicle speed....but to be shaking they would need to be REALLY worn out. If the problem appear when accelerating it might be your universal joint which would rather be on front of the car

Oldsmobile aurora problems

Having an alignment done usually only corrects the car pulling to one side. Check the rear tires for balance and wear. You may also want to have them rotated to the front to see if the vibration also moves to the front.

Ihave a 01 olds aurora when I go 60 mph the rear shakes on the pass side I had anew tire replace and balanced what causes this

If the rear is shaking you would fell it in the seat if the front is shaking it will be felt in the wheel. If tire has been balanced but still has a loap to it you will sill feel it. When they balance a tire, its in the air in the balance r not the ground. Both sides should be balanced, not just one.

Shaking at 50-60 mph 93 Mazda B2600 Pickup two wheel drive

What kind of mechanic, an especially dealer has no recommendation for this? here does the shaking seem to come from? Front, rear, left, right? My first thoughts are get your tires balance and maybe rotated too. check your tires for funny wear patterns. If your tread seems to have a choppy feel or appearance, it is likely your shocks or struts needing replaced. But definitely try getting tires balanced first.

My montana shakes/vibrates up and down when speed passed 75 mph. It is ok below 60 mph

Most likely a tire/wheel balance issue. The weights that are used to balance the tires can sometimes fall off. Generally how far out of balance it is determines when and how bad it will shake. Unfortunately this is not fixable without a tire balancing machine, has to got to a tire shop.

Were the tires rotated or replaced recently? Most major tire shops will check the balance for you at little or no charge if you take it back to the shop where the work was done.

You can also try to identify the problem tire by rotating the front and rear tires one side at a time. For example, if the vibration is coming from the front, swap the front and rear passenger side tires and drive the vehicle again. If the vibration moves to the back it's most likely the (now) passenger side rear tire that's out of balance. If the is no change, try the driver's side tires.

Hope this helps!

2002 VW Passat shakes when on the highway traveling over 60mph. ABS module needs to be changed, as well as some engine coils. Do not know why shaking is happening, any info on this?

Over 60 MPH is likely due to the wheels being out of balance. I would take it to a local tire shop and have the wheels balanced and then take for a test drive. Look also for bent rims or any damage to the tires but over 60 is likely out of balance.

When i hit the brakes or go over 60 miles the wheels will start to shake

It sounds like you may have more than one problem here. First I would investigate Front End Alignment and ALL Steering/Suspension components for excessive wear and/or looseness. Second I would Inspect the Brake Rotors and Pads for uneven wear. Third I would check the Tires for uneven wear and balance. Many things can cause these symptoms: Worn out Ball Joints, defective Shock Absorbers/Struts. Worn out Tie Rod Ends, Idler Arm, even the Steering Gear Box can be part of the problem. Brake Rotors and Tires can be out of Balance with either one causing the problem over 60 MPH. I strongly suggest having your vehicle inspected by an ASE Certified Front End and Brake specialist immediately. It is very dangerous to drive a vehicle with these symptoms.

Shakes at 60 mphexplorer xlt

Tires would be the 1st place to check. If you seem to feel it more in your legs then it is likely the front, if felt more in seat bottom then could be a rear tire. Depending on how severe the vibration is there could be a tire developing a tread seperation and should be checked right away. A simple balance of the tire and wheel assemblies may be all that required also but when on a balancer they should be able to tell if the tire has a more severe problem.
Driveline components could cause vibrations also however if the above sounds like it fits then check that 1st.

'98 aurora shimmies 60,296 miles on car

Most shimmies come from tire/wheel/balance combos. Before your dollars go down on 4 tires(assuming you have good tread), rotate tires & if there is a change you can figure out the offending unit

Where is the water pump located on a 97 Mountaineer? And how hard are they to change? I think mine went out. I noticed water dripping under the motor for a while, and my Mountie started running hotter one day but then it stopped doing it, but my AC would blow hot and cold, then yesterday, it ran hot and we refilled it (was nearly empty but the radiator wasn't super hot and we were able to take the cap off) but afterwards, the battery light started flickering and the battery gauge dropped and the power steering went crazy, and I suspect it's my water pump. Where should I look to confirm a water pump leak? Edit: This is what happened yesterday. It's more linear so maybe it makes more sense to help figure this out. -My Mountie temp gauge was nearly to the red, so I popped the hood. I squeezed the top hose going into the radiator and it wasn't hard so I felt the radiator cap and it wasn't really hot so I started it up and had Al (my son) help me remove the cap. The radiator was nearly dry so we added antifreeze and water (about 3 gallons) and the temp dropped back down on the gauge, but when I drove again it was leaking enough water to cover Alan's windshield behind me, the battery light was flickering, the battery gauge showed low and I had no power steering. When I got it home and we popped the hood (the temp gauge stayed at about 3/4 up til I got home, so I kept driving) it looked like something was spraying antifreeze all over my belts. That's why I'm thinking water pump.
