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.

You need to have it scanned. The od off light is like the check engine light for the transmission. It will flash when you have transmission codes.

SOURCE: Maybe a transmission problem?

If you're only in "D", you should switch to "OD" when driving at higher speeds. "D" only allows you to move up to third gear whereas "OD" will move you into fourth. You're over-working your transmission by driving in "D".

Check your wheelbearings for play and your tierod ends for play,I'm sure one of these two are at fault.

74 VETTE WITH 350 zz4 ENGINE 62mph THE rpm's at 3,000 and screaming (red lie starts at 5,000) what is my gear ratio and what should it be for highway driving


Assuming the tires are close to standard (i.e., 275/60/R15), this means you probably have a 4.11 ratio rear end in your Corvette. This was a very popular ratio on Chevys for drag racing. For highway driving you would want a higher speed ratio, such as a 3.55 or 3.36 ratio (or even a 3.08), depending on what is available. which would give you 70 MPH, 75 MPH, or 80 MPH at 3000 rpm.
You'll need to change the speedometer driven gear in your transmission for your speedometer to be accurate if you change the gear ratio.

What would be causing my 2009 chevy impala to shake? As i accelerate onto the freeway at about 60-70 mph, thats when the shacking occurs.


This is usually caused by tires that are not balanced. Note that you can have them balanced for regular driving and that is about 60 MPH. When you go over that it will shake.

Shakes when driving


One of the tires may have a slipped belt or be extremely out of balance. I would reccomend not driving it until you have it inspected.

Automatic, V-6, ideal RPM at 70 MPH?


Sounds like the transmission is not shifting into a higher gear. 2,500 to 3,000 rpm would be more realistic for a highway cruising speed. The higher rpm may not be a big deal as far as the engine is concerned but it will hit you pocket book pretty good when you loose the mpg that you should get. I would personally either limit your driving until it can be checked or at least slow down so that the RPMs are in the range listed above. Let me know what they find, my curiosity is peaked!

RPMs increase by 3-400 without increasing speed when driving on highway at 60 to 70 mph.


Then you are facing a internal transmission failure you are basically slipping your fix is a replacement or a rebuilt

Shaking at highway speeds.


As for your shaking at highway speeds, providing your tires have been balanced properly, it's probably a u-joint. If you let off the gas when it's vibrating, and the vibration quits immediatly, it's a u-joint. If it doesn't, it's a tire or wheel.
The squeak is probably a shock, but that would be a guess.
