Question about 2005 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

2005 Town and Country shakes. The steering wheel visibly moves back and forth when it is driven. I've already tried a front end alignment and that didn't help at all.

When I break over 40 MPH the front wheels start to shake...


AHHHHGGG... Be careful!! This is a VERY dangerous situation. If you really want to do this yourself rather than have a professional do it, you need to jack up the car and check that the wheels are not loose. You could be losing a bearing or a ball joint or the tie rod balls. When you grab any part of the steering it should be tight. You should not be able to shake any of the rods. The wheel, once off the ground, should not be able to rock back and forth. It could be that you have an out-of-round wheel, or it could be that you drive line is out of balance. Too many things to count, you really need to have a professional look at it.

Sometimes the mechanical system that locks your steering wheel has too much vehicle weight which can prevent the key from turning. If you can move the vehicle back and forth while someone turn the steering wheel and turn the ignition switch.

While driving dwn the road i hve a bad shake in my steering wheel i have a 1999 gmc yukon


it sounds like the front tires need balancing.if you drive the truck slowly(creeping down the road at about 5mph)and lightly holding the steering wheel do you feel the steering wheel moving back and forth.this could indicate a bad belt in a tire where as a wheel imbalance won`t show up at this low of a speed,but a bad belt will.also have the front end checked for worn front end components and wheel bearings,this can cause a bad shake too.

Sterring is loose and noise in the left front end


Sounds like you need some front end parts. You can narrow down the parts you may need though. Get a jack and some jack stands and raise the front of your vehicle so the front wheels are off the ground. The first thing I would check is the tie rod ends as this would give you loose steering. Now that your wheels are off the ground, take both hands and grab each side of a front tire and wiggle it side to side. Keep your eye on the other front tire. If you can move the tire side to side at all, even a little bit, and the other tire does not move side to side with it, you have bad tie rods. Locate the point where the tie rod end connects to the steering knuckle at the wheel. The tie rod end will have a rubber boot with a bolt going through with a nut and probably a cotter pin holding the nut in. Now wiggle the tire again and keep your eye on this spot where the rubber boot meets the steering knuckle. If your knuckle moves (even a little) and the tie rod end does not, THAT tie rod end is bad. There are inner and outer tie rod ends. You want to check the pivot point (the place that the tie rod end is connected) on the inner and outer tie rod ends on both wheels. Again, you are looking for one side to move and the other to not move. Even if it only looks like a couple mm, it is bad. There should be NO movement whatsoever. Once you have identified all loose parts by moving the wheels side to side, we can now check ball joints and bearings. To do this is very similar to what we just did only this time we grab the top and bottom of the wheel and try to move it back and forth. Pull the top of the tire towards you and push the bottom of the tire away from you then vise versa. There should be absolutely no wiggle. If you do get a little play here, locate your upper and lower ball joints. these too will have rubber boots on them and just like the tie rod ends, you are going to keep your eye on the point where the boot meets the A-arm. If you see any movement here, that ball joint is bad. Now, if your wheel wiggles back and forth but your ball joints are tight (zero movement) then you have issues with the wheel bearings. If you have to replace any tie rod ends you will have to have an alignment done because your toe will be off and you will wear out your tires. When replacing a tie rod end, prior to taking it off, count the number of threads that are visible. You want to leave that same number of threads visible when you install the new one. Keep in mind, this only gets the alignment close enough to get to the shop to have it aligned. Good Luck!!

Start with a tire inspection, then have them balanced and rotated.

You could have worn tie rod ends as well. Most places provide a free front end inspections, but make them show you if parts are loose. If they won't show you go somewhere else.

Tahoe 2001 4 wheel drive. above 60 miles an hour when driving over a bridge abunkment?? The front end shakes violently, my husband said the car felt like it was going to break apart. No one seems to...


You might jack up the truck on the side, leaving one front wheel on the ground, the other suspended. Have someone watch the steering components close to the suspended wheel while another moves the steering back and forth at a medium rate and look for 'unnatural' movements of joints. Do both sides to check.
This sounds like a tie rod end that is shot and these are fairly easy to spot since the joint will move in directions that are obviously wrong.
The reason it doesn't want to stop is that when one wheel is no longer being held rigidly, it will 'oscillate' causing the violent shaking. The boost from power steering worsens the problem. It can be dangerous; a friend had a worn tie rod end come apart while barreling down the Freeway. Steering with one wheel doesn't work. He survived but no longer ignores the signs.
If you had brought the truck to a decent front-end alignment shop, they would have found this while trying (it doesn't work) to align it.

When the van is driven my front end is making a knocking noise my front driver side wheel shakes and the steering wheel shakes


Front wheel drive cars have CV joints in the axles to permit the wheel to turn for steering. The CV joint is basically a universal joint on steroids. When they ware out it can cause this type of condition.

98 mazda millenia shaking front end at 40 mph?? any clues??


try the simple solution first put your front tires on back and back tires on front. check your air pressure then take it for a drive and see if any thing has changed. if so you probably have a badly worn tire. if no change have someone move the steering wheel back and forth wyle you are under the fornt of the car (dont forget to chalk the wheels) and see if any of your steering components are loose/moving. if nothing is loose and your tires are good try to bounce the front end. if you can really get the front of the car going up and down pretty easy you havce bad struts/shocks.
