Why does my 2007 bmw x3 shakes very bad under the seats


Barbara,
Vibration is caused by something out of balance - or worn.

If your steering wheel shakes and vibrates there's a tyre balance/steering problem.

You say that it is under the seats - this suggests a worn propshaft (driveshaft) which is causing the vibration, or a worn gearbox or engine mounting.

There's nobody on Fixya who can give you a 100% diagnosis without actually witnessing the symptoms themself.

If the vibration is as bad as you say it is - either give a mobile mechanic a call or call in at a workshop and ask them to give you an opinion. If you continue to drive a car that has a shaking/vibration problem you're likely to cause further -more expensive- problems.

When i step on the gas the car vibrates and shakes


Is the engine running smoothly? Does it only vibrate when loaded? If so, then Yes, check the motor mounts. While you or a tech are underneath get your driveline and suspension mounts checked. A bad suspension mount could give the same symptoms. You don't say how many miles but if its anywhere near 100k then mounts are a definite possibility.

Car shakes on front driver side after 70mph


Hey,, The problem may not be relate to the wheels at all. Fro what your telling me it sounds like a broken engine mount. This will cause the problem. Basically the engine mount hols the engine to the vehicle and the rubber in it dampens the vibrations. With the rubber broken you will feel the vibrations on the pedal..

However to mention the can be another reason, This one is very unlikely here seeing as the pedal vibrates but just in case check your Alignment and Cambering.

basically take the vehicle to a mechanic to locate and replace the engine mount , ore than likely is the rear mount or the one closest to the driver. You can do this yourself if you like,

1.) Locate the broken Mount (you will see the rubber in the mount broken)
2.) Use a Car jack (the ones you use the change tires) , and use it to lift the engine up to reduce the pressure on the mount.

3.) remove the broken mount and replace it.

Its just 4 bolts, 2 on the engine 2 on the mount to the car body. You will need to get a torque wrench and a lever (cast iron metal pipe will work fine) to add extra leverage to turn the bolts off.

if you let off the gas and it stops vibrating, have the cv axles checked. if the steering wheel shakes at parking lot speeds, a tire is bad.

It sounds like one or both of the drive axle inner joints are worn out. This condition will give a very pronounced vibration on acceleration only and will be worse with increased speed.

Bad vibration from a stop. worse when you give it gas from a stop with a loud rumbling growl sound.vibration is really bad at lower speeds, going thru parking lots and turns.


Sounds like a bad wheel bearing to me. Jack up each corner of the car one at a time and grab the tire. Shake like crazy on it - if it moves, you've found a bad bearing. It should be solidly on the hub with no play whatsoever.

Are you getting any error codes? Is the check engine light on and/or blinking? The vibrating and other symptoms you described are common from shorted ignition coils. It also sounds like there's a separate issue with power steering - check your fluids, pump, and hoses.

At 40 mph the car starts to shake. It last to 5o


I have this same car with exactly the same problem. Begins shaking at 40mph and stops shaking as soon as you let off the gas, but then begins again as soon as you press on the gas and smooths out as you get over 50. And the shaking is not felt through the steering wheel. Solution: Replace the transmission mounts. There are two of them, one on each side mounted on the frame right next to the shock strut. There is also a front and rear engine mount, but I replaced the two as described and shaking is gone.
