SOURCE: loud vibration on 2005 jeep liberty when under load.

Sounds a lot like a wheel balance problem, Does vibration go away over 55? In checking driveshaft joints...If you looked at them with the vehicle in park with the wheels on the ground, the shaft is "loaded" and cannot be correctly checked. To do this properly, vehicle should be in neutral with both rear wheels off the ground. Sometimes a joint can appear to be tight but still be bad. Check for traces of powdered rust around the rubber boots right where the end caps meet the cross on the inside. Any rust there indicates lack of grease and the likelyhood that the joint is frozen.
Check both balance and joints. Good luck.

get it inspected before it falls of and destroys the front end if you want to be sure.

Sounds like a axle bearing but you can find that better than I are there I'm not. In replacing the axle bearing and seal, you will need to remove the diff cover. Take a good look at the lube and see if there is any fine metal flakes in it. If there are, but not a really large amount, clean out the housing really well and continue with the job. If the noise persists, then you may have a bad carrier or pinion bearing. (generally you can push the driveshaft yoke up and down if a pinion bearing is bad and usually that seal will be leaking)
In most cases your problem will end with a replacement of the axle bearing so other than looking at the lube, I wouldn't worry too much.

What can be possible problem be? at 10-15 mph very slight vibration in steering wheel and dosn't seem to roll right

Blister or broken steel braid in tire. Lug nut torqued properly? If you suspect tire, move it to the back and see if the noise/vibration migrates with it. The only other guess would be your wheel bearing is failing.

Load knoking noise coming from in side midle of dashboard near radio when over 55 mph, no other symptons

dash knocks. 2002 wrangler.

that\'s a good one but id do this.

1: kill the whole HVAC system power, (FUSE pulls) under stand how.

if this is not clear, ask or read the FSM page on HVAC.

it might be a berserk damper motor (device)

this car is TJ

using 2 persons to find noise works best and at 55 that big time danger. no? so do that, one drives. other uses a rubber hose to his

ear to find LOCATION, like in real estate, location is every thing, LOL.

its not a bad speedo cable, there is no such ani-mule on this car.

electronic end to end.

before working on any car, 96\' to now, defeat the air bags per FSM

first or get broken neck or worse at 55mph. really... RTM.

DO not ever work on cars with no FSM or find your self, playing harp.

I put my bet on HVAC

and using a real scan tool not autozoned junk, and see if you

have HVAC DTC errors.

i use a Innova 3160 and it shows them all. (so do others)

the $29 code readers are pure junk, on newer cars.

ok on 1996, but not newer cars with CAN buss or advanced electronics like ours.


fooling around air bags at 55mph is fool hardy.

2005 F150 4x4 crewcab with 42K miles on it. I have a loud grinding in the front axle area at all speeds . The noise comes and goes. Also have a vibration which feels like the big tires but vibrtation will...

If you are engaging your 4 WD at over 55, that in itself may be a problem. Driving over 50 in 4wd may not be a good idea and almost impossible if you are in 4wd Low. You will be straining the rpm limits in 4 wd Low - and everything else in your drive train. It will also be a strain in 4wd High to a lesser extent. (I am assuming you are talking MPH)

At speeds over 55 mph I hear a noise and feel a vibration that seems to come from the driver side wheel. I have replaced the wheel hub on both wheels and it has not gone away.

The first thing I would do is have the drivers side wheel balance checked and check to see if the tire is out of round. Any good tire store who does mounting can do this.

Vibration/Rattling on right side during high speeds

I had a similar problem. The dealer change automatic transmission and differential, but the noise continu. After research on internet i think the problem is the front galiper who create a vibration on the disc wheel and the vibration frequence follow the front axle until interior car. Just press slowly the brake pedal and if the noise stop , that's it the cause i think. I dont change my galiper, but i have a new transmission . :)))

1999 Suzuki Grand Vitara Vibrate/shake at 55-70 mph

Lift the back of your car.With a stable rest and with the two hind wheels hanging, run your car up to the speed where you experienced vibration. have someone take care of the throttle and shifting while you observe the transmission shaft. You may have an imbalanced shaft.
