Unbalanced wheels shake a vehicle like that. It's hard to understand your earlier statement. It sounded like after you weren't moving anymore that it still shook. I am figuring that isn't what you meant.

When driving around at any speed on highway my car feels like gliding It feels like I'm going to lose control and sometimes when I brake coming down hill the front end shakes violently. then will stop


This is an indication of a strut issue. The shocks dampen the spring in the strut assembly. IF you have loose fastening components or bushings or a bad shock in the strut you can get a violent shudder when you apply brakes on a down hill direction.

Violent Shaking


No check engine light on? If it jumps rapidly, then it can only be due to the transmission changing gears, or slipping clutches. Either way, there should be a fault code set in the PCM. You need to get it scanned first to know the fault code.

I have a 2002 Volkswagen Golf with a 2.0 engine. The 'check engine' light starts to blink and the car starts to shake violently, and it doesn't accelerate past about 25km/h. Then after riding...


there are a LOT of problems that could have this effect on an engine ... but from this description it sounds like your timing chain might have skipped a tooth. If your timing is off, the pistons will not fire at the correct time, and will cause a violent shake in the engine, and the engine will lose almost all power. This issue would also cause a hard start whenever you try to get your car started, so it may not be this ...
You might have a leak in your head gasket which is leaking either water or antifreeze into one of your pistons. When you start the car, is there a sweet smell in the exhaust? If antifreeze gets into a piston, it usually stops that piston from firing at all. This could cause a violent shake in the engine, and might not cause a hard start, so it would only be noticed when you start driving.
You could have a dead spot in your distributor cap -- the piece of the engine that distributes electrical charge to the spark plugs. Replacing the plugs is a first step to finding out if it is this problem -- it is cheaper and easier to do than replacing / repairing the distributor cap. When the plugs don't want to fire correctly, it has the same effect on the engine as antifreeze in your engine -- a violent shake and diminished power.
There is a SMALL possibility that it could be your transmission. If your transmission is getting stuck in the wrong gear, or between gears, the engine will try to pour out power, but will get so bogged down by the malfunctioning transmission that the whole car will shake. This is a VERY rare problem, but it does occasionally happen.
Your car's computer might not be sending or receiving the correct information to or from the engine. If this is the case, it could be pumping a different amount of fuel to each cylinder, causing the engine to fire too hard sometimes, and too soft other times. This would prevent you from getting proper acceleration, and could cause a shake in the car, but I don't think it would be a Violent shake like you described.
You could have a bent Cam, which would not allow the valves to function correctly (but this would probably keep the car from starting). It could be a bad bearing in the engine (but this would probably keep the car from starting at all). You could have faulty valves (but once again, it would probably not start at all). There are a lot of other possibilities as well ... but I think you get the point here. It is going to take a while to figure out exactly what is wrong. If you have a friend who is willing to help you out, or a really cheap mechanic that you can take it to, you'll probably save a lot of money over taking it to a corporate shop. Best of luck!

Shake in steering wheel


I believe you need your disk brake rotors turned to be true again or have them replaced. Whe you use your brakes a lot and kit puddles of cold water then it will warp the rotors which will cause the violent shaking. You may not feel it in the brake pedal even if it is warped rotors. If you don't think you have warped rotors then you should be very careful driving it because it will probably be in the steering sector arm or the idler arm on the steering shaft.
