Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE

1 Answer

Shaking in the steering wheel and motor when the brakes are applied from 60 mph or greater I have a 2000 grand am and it does the same thing and I had my tires balanced today and it still does it and it shakes so hard that I have to grab with both hands and fight the steering wheel. What would make your front end shake when you go to 70 mph or more?

    With the tie rods do you think it would be the inner or the outer?

Shaking in left front 50-60 mph 1993 Mazda PU B2600 2wd


I guess my first question is how do you know it is just the left front wheel ?
Have you checked the front shocks ?
Does it make any difference if you are applying the brakes ?
Have you moved the left front wheel to a different position ?

When driving my car the steering wheel shakes


If the steering wheel starts to shake between 55-65 MPH then you need to balance the wheels. If it shakes when you press the brakes, your brake rotors are warped and need to be cut or replaced. If the steering wheel shakes at low speeds then it's possible one of your rims is bent or one of your tires is out of round. Leaving a car parked for a long time in snowy and icy roads will damage your tires, causing them to warp. Depending on which situation is causing your steering wheel to shake, have it looked at.

Hii.. i have elantra 2001..when i run about 60 mph..and slow down by breaks..the steering start to shake strongly..when lift my leg..it goes so fine,,whats the problem..? thanks


Your brake rotors are warped. The warped rotors are transmitting their side to side movement, to your steering wheel, when you apply the brakes. Have the rotors checked to see which one(s) is/are warped and have them replaced.

The part you are looking at is the steering damper.It can be damaged by repeated shaking but won't cause it.
Likely the condition you have is caused by bad lower ball joints.
The lowers have no grease fittings and as such, fail earlier than the uppers. There are other causes but happen less often. Your track bar mount can wear oblong, overall cumulative wear of all front end parts can produce enough side to side play to do that or the wheels may not be torqued down exactly to specifications. In extreme cases where all is good but the shaking continues, you can have additional caster adjustment added to the alignment specs. I am assuming that your tires are properly balanced?

Brakes all 4 lock up steering wheel shakes above


OK, when the ABS module is unplugged, the same results. That tells me that the ABS system is not working properly.
Did they look into the master cylinder and other abs related components?
Any ABS codes on it?

If steering wheel shakes above 50 mph that's likely to be the tires on it, rather than a brake problem.

Have tires balanced and rotated and inspected for out of roundness that might cause vibration above 50 mph.

Shaking in the steering wheel and motor when the brakes are applied from 60 mph or greater


Check your wheel bearing by lifting the wheel up and checking the rotor, , caliper and bearings. If you see ground up metal. Check with a small magnet. Your bearing or rotors are going bad.
