2005 Buick LeSabre vibration low speeds 10 to 45mph

Feels like front end. Parked car straight to line up front and back wheels. Front wheels look like they are at least 3 inches to the left of the rear wheels. This car was recently hit in the rear end on drivers side with approx. $1000 damage to the rear tail light and quarter panel. Would this have any effect on the vibration? Just noticed this vibration since I picked up car from repair shop yesterday.

    Frame could now be twisted. Have someone follow you and see if it tracks correctly. Yes it could have lots to do with the vibration.

REDBEAR IS RIGHT, IT COULD BE ANYTHING. IF THE REAR WHEELS DON'T LINE UP WITH THE FRONT ONES, THEN IN AUTOMOTIVE TERMINOLOGY WE SAY THE "TRACKING IS OFF". THIS WILL MAKE THE REAR END UNSTABLE. THE COLLISION SHOP SHOULD BE ASHAMED TO CALL IT FIXED. IF THE SUB-FRAME IS BENT, THEN THE INSURANCE COMPANY SHOULD TOTAL THE CAR. LET THEM KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT SATISFIED WITH THE REPAIRS AND ARE SEEKING LEGAL ADVICE. THEY WILL DO THE RIGHT THING I AM SURE. HOPE THIS HELPS. GIVE EM HELL. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA.

Yes, if it didn't do it before the accident but now it is then call your insurance co. and let them know it isn't fixed and the symptoms. It could be anything. A bent steering component, warped rim, etc.

Change the fluid someone may have added incorrect fluid to top off, grease up all front end fittings and look for wear signs, and double check torque on wheels and correct air pressure.

How to bleed brakes on 1997 Saturn


The brake system bleeding procedure differs for ABS and non-ABS vehicles. The following procedure pertains only to non-ABS vehicles. For details on bleeding ABS equipped vehicles, refer to the ABS procedures later in this section.

WARNING Make sure the master cylinder contains clean DOT 3 brake fluid at all times during the procedure.
  1. The master cylinder must be bled first if it is suspected of containing air. Bleed the master cylinder as follows:
    1. Position a container under the master cylinder to catch the brake fluid.
    2. Loosen the left front brake line (front upper port) at the master cylinder and allow the fluid to flow from the front port.
    3. Connect the line and tighten to 24 ft. lbs. (32 Nm).
    4. Have an assistant depress the brake pedal slowly one time and hold it down, while you loosen the front line to expel air from the master cylinder. Tighten the line, then release the brake pedal. Repeat until all air is removed from the master cylinder.
    5. Tighten the brake line to 24 ft. lbs. (32 Nm) when finished.
    6. Repeat these steps for the right front brake line (rear upper port) at the master cylinder.
WARNING Do not allow brake fluid to spill on or come in contact with the vehicle' finish, as it will remove the paint. In case of a spill, immediately flush the area with water.
  1. If a single line or fitting was the only hydraulic line disconnected, then only the caliper(s) or wheel cylinder(s) affected by that line must be bled. If the master cylinder required bleeding, then all calipers and wheel cylinders must be bled in the proper sequence:
    1. Right rear
    2. Left front
    3. Left rear
    4. Right front
  2. Bleed the individual calipers or wheel cylinders as follows:
    1. Place a suitable wrench over the bleeder screw and attach a clear plastic hose over the screw end.
    2. Submerge the other end in a transparent container of brake fluid.
    3. Loosen the bleed screw, then have an assistant apply the brake pedal slowly and hold it down. Close the bleed screw, then release the brake pedal. Repeat the sequence until all air is expelled from the caliper or cylinder.
    4. When finished, tighten the bleed screw to 97 inch lbs. (11 Nm) for the front, or 66 inch lbs. (7.5 Nm) for the rear.
  3. Check the pedal for a hard feeling with the engine not running. If the pedal is soft, repeat the bleeding procedure until a firm pedal is obtained.

I've been told I need to replace my 1999 Maxima's front axles, but it was not "urgent". Upon inspecting my tire treads, I noticed that when I parked, the steering was turned to the left. Upon...


The alignment angles may off due to worn parts. The half shafts on the Maxima might be worn, as indicated by a clicking noise on turns. The camber and toe can be off caused by worn ball joints or tie rod ends ( which are connected to the rack and pinion), respectively, causing the wheels to appear to be 'toe out' as you describe in your problem.

Sometimes, the wheels will appear to be toe out compared to the body, but are in reality dead straight ahead according to the alignment machine which can measure angles down to a fraction of a degree.

Are you experiencing irregular tire wear, indicating poor alignment?

Before a computerized alignment can be performed, the front end parts should be tight for the various angles, including cast, camber, and toe.

The axles, are less of an issue, except worn ones can cause that notorious clicking and eventually lead to a break down in the drivetrain where the half shaft joint actualy breaks apart.

Also, a worn axle can cause the bearings in the hub to go bad if the axle is binding at all.

It's a good idea to have all of the front end parts as tight as possible.

After the car was parked for 3 weeks the left rear


The brake is probably frozen, take the wheel off and free up the brake. If you have rear disc brakes, you need to remove the caliper and compress it with a clamp.
