Question about Oldsmobile Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Car shakes bad 60 - 70

Replace sway bar links, passenger side wheel bearing, both control arms in the back, breaks, I have tried taking the car out of OD and out of gear (N) while at speed to see if vibration continues and it does, sometime the vibration makes it feel out of control, when you hit a bump in the road the car will pull to one side, I have done pretty much all I know how to do. Ball joints seem ok, tie rods are new, shocks look like they are in good shape any thoughts anyone?

Control arm bushings would have been my 1st guess.
Struts/shocks are a possibility. (the top mount bushing on the struts)
Get the tires balanced..... that can cause vibration.

SOURCE: 2003 Dodge Durango clunking noise in front end can

With the information given this is not a sure solution. Questions that need to be asked is when does this happen, turning at slow speedm high speed, when hitting a pot hole etc? Since you have replaced a lot of things already, assuming you have NEW good quality parts so you did not replace bad parts with new bad parts i would definitelu check the pitman arm. This runs from the stering gear to the tierod. It can give you some good clunks while steering, especially at low speed when there is a lot of resistance. Check it by having someone turning the steering wheel when watchin/feeling it.

SOURCE: why does my jeep vigorously shake after either going over 50mph or a bump n i'm not talkn about a vibration plz help...tie rods,sway bars, track/control arm, new tires,4x alignment, pwr steer pump

I had the same problem with mine, if u look on the drivers side there is a bracket bolted to the frame that the drag link hooks too. If this bracket is cracked or broken or bolts have come loose or fallen out, your front end will go crazy after htting a bump at any speed over say 25 mph.

SOURCE: Have replaced all tie rods; inner&outer;struts&upper mounts;sway bar bushings & links;lower control arms with ball joints& passenger side upper motor mount.none of these have changed this noise even s

What noise? And year and make of car?
A clicking noise on turns is a worn CV joint on the axle shafts. A grinding noise at one of the wheels could be a wheel bearing. Worn brake pads may cause squealing, screeching other high pitched noise.

There is a clacking sound from the left tyre while moving on a rough surface and on low speeds


OK so it's your CV axle most likely during slow revolutions it clacks and makes noises so replace both sides to ensure transmission/engine performance stays optimal to power applied to the road. The other cause of noises in that area are due to the wheel bearings needing replaced usually and sometimes repacking the bearings instead. On your car if the axle passes through the wheel it has to ride on something to control balance and torque across the drive shaft. I would replace both front driver and passenger side wheel bearings and the CV axles on both sides please be smart people and replace parts like these in pairs/ together the reason being after you replace one side you drive a few months or less and the other side goes out almost always soon after the other I would say over 75% of the time let it be bearings/u-joints/CV axles or other crucial parts. Hope this helps please take my word and fix it right the first time and please buy the better parts not the cheapest parts out there if you want quality/ safety than buy the better or best parts never just the good or OK parts

Lots of shaking from side to side.


Could be a bad tire ( or bent rim Have balance checked), ball joint, idler arm, wheel bearing, steering tie rod end or defective rack and pinion unit. Lift vehicle about 1 inch off ground ( do each side independently) Use a pry bar and pry from ground up and down on wheel. Much play? bad ball joint. With both hands, try to move wheel side to side. Much play? could be a tie rod end or bad wheel bearing. Visually check play of steering arm into rack and pinion unit, more than about a half inch play, bad rack and pinion unit. Try to move back and forth with hands top and bottom. Much play? Bad ball joint or wheel bearing, verify visually that it is ball joint moving, else it is the wheel bearing. Manually check for play in each joint in steering control rods from steering knuckle all the way through each rod where there is a joint. Replace the one you find excessive play in. Check mounting studs for sway bar for loose fit, deteriorated rubber bushings or a crack / break in the sway bar. Replace if needed. That's about all I can think of unless it only happens when applying brakes, in which case it could be a warped rotor.

Rear suspension sway axle side


could be rear wheel bearings - they come as a complete assy with brake hub - approx $45 each side - 1 hour per side for replacement. Also replace the rear sway bar links $8 for a set - other than that you could have a bent wheel and or loose rear control arm bolts - remove the rear wheels and check all mounting bolts - I had this problem and my rear end felt like it was shimming when I went around corners - 5 minute fix

The driver side tire is sitting visibly farther back from the passenger side, it has a very hard left hand pull when brakes applied, but wheels turn freely in neutral when raised off ground. recently...


Check the control arm, and the control arm bushings on the left side. Sounds like something is broken, loose, or totally worn out. Use a sturdy pry bar to try to force it in different directions front and back, any play will become apparent.

My Avalanche, when going appx 65-70 miles an hour rocks violently from side to side. If you go over a bumpy bridge at this speed, it will litterly hurt your neck and you have to hit the breaks immediatly...


you may have a bad or broken sway bar link, or the bushings. if the sway bar links break it will sway wildly especially on corners. on some vehicles they are hooked to " A " frame which is hooked to tire, this is why the tires go crazy. have a great day !!

Steering is loose


There could be a few issues you may be dealing with, one is you could possibly have worn out lower control arm bushings, or the sway bar links could be bad, may als be a very badly worn wheel bearing. Any of these issues should be addressed as soon as possible, recommend having it looked at by a repair shop. Hope this helps
